    How do you create excited, engaged, happy, and effective teams? Start them off right by letting your engineers choose their own teams and projects! Through a proven technique called self-selection, Opower was able to turn a tribe of 40 engineers, many of whom were unexcited about continuing to work on the same old products, into six high-performing teams with engineers who were excited to embark on a new adventure, acquire new skills, and ship awesome code.

    In this session we will cover the self-selection process: what it is, generating buy-in & excitement, preparing your teams, running a self-selection event, dealing with concerns throughout the process, and measuring the success of your process. This talk is for anyone who wants to create better teams including Agile Coaches, Release Train Engineers, Program Managers, individual contributors, and other organizational change leaders.

    Government missions are complicated undertakings; wouldn't it be great to be able to understand all of your key components at a glance? This session will review the use of a Business Canvas to capture what your organization does, regardless of size or mission, on a single page.  It will also cover  analyses that can be done using such a canvas, both logically and via experiments, and how this can fit into transformation. The demonstration will also show how decisions you make for improvements  on your canvas can fit into your project or program portfolio.

    This interactive demonstration will walk you through the concepts using a real Government organization.

    Bringing DevOps to an Entrenched Legacy Environment with Kanban

    At a Federal Agency or a large commercial company you may get a chance to work on a major program that makes a real difference in people’s lives.   But the (legacy) software behind such programs is often large and complex, and therein lie some challenges.  Here are some of the challenges we faced on a major 15+ year old legacy system comprised of 2M lines of source code:

    • maintenance costs were escalating
    • It seemed like every time an issue was fixed, it caused two more
    • Lengthy delays between major software releases
    • New releases suffered from high priority bugs that had to be hot-fixed immediately
    • The software was taking longer and longer to be fully tested; in fact, it became practically impossible to test every feature.

    When looking to implement agile practices on a legacy program, it is hard to know where to begin.  Innovative Silicon Valley companies like Etsy leverage DevOps and Continuous Delivery practices to achieve new levels of automation and agility, shrinking development lead times and deploying to production many times each day.  However, it can be a struggle to implement these practices for legacy systems that run our core businesses.  To make matters worse, the agile community offers relatively little practical guidance for implementing DevOps practices in legacy environments.  Fortunately, the Kanban Method provides a practical way to gradually evolve these core systems towards achieving DevOps cost savings and efficiencies, even if you don’t have a massive budget.

    Through a case study involving a criminal justice system for a US government agency, we will examine how the Kanban method helped us identify and remove the barriers that prevented us from implementing DevOps automation for legacy systems.  Just as importantly, Kanban provided the means to measure the efficacy of our efforts, prompting us to course-correct when necessary. We will review some interesting examples using the Microsoft technology stack, but these lessons apply equally to Java, LAMP, MEAN, or any other set of technologies.  The end result was better quality and collaboration and faster delivery of value to our stakeholders.  Perhaps it is possible to teach an old dog new tricks, after all.

    Tutorial

    How do you do Kanban in Jira? There is a default Kanban system provided by Jira, but what do you do when you need to accomplish more than simply moving issues across a board? How do you manage blocks and defects? How do you set up your Kanban system in Jira to provide you with decent metrics? These are just some of the questions we will discuss and you will learn how to address through this tutorial.

    I will cover how you can take a team from an analog system into Jira by using some mindful planning and thoughtful approaches.

    You will leave this tutorial with a set of easy-to-follow steps that will help you get more out of Jira with your Kanban system.

    Are you lazy like me and want a simple way to measure your team’s performance? The Kanban Method, which is sometimes referred to as the "Start with what you do now" approach to evolutionary change, offers a simple and easy way to start measuring and improving your team’s performance.

    I will take you on a brief journey through three government teams that are using Kanban to define, measure, and improve their performance as well as their processes and quality of work. Throughout this talk, I will explain what Kanban is, show three different approaches I have used when implementing a Kanban system, help you know when your Kanban system is predictable and when it is not, and provide simple steps so you can start your Kanban efforts the next day.

    Have you heard about Kanban and do not know where to start or if it is a good fit for your team(s)?

    In our time together I will present an introduction to Kanban including high level concepts and key takeaways for use in your organization.  We will explore some of the better places that Kanban can fit into your Agile (or aspiring Agile) organization.  I will share the information I have gathered and learned over the past four years and leave you with resources to further expand your knowledge of Kanban.  We will end our time together with an open Q&A to discuss your questions, experiences and challenges with Kanban in your organizations.

    I am a past presenter at Lean+Kanban DC, presenting with Amber King in February 2014 a presentation on National Geographic's PMO-Driven Agile Adoption.
