The Role of Architecture in Agile Development
In large Government and Commercial organizations with many interacting systems, architecture is necessary to collaborate effectively across disparate entities and systems. Traditional command and control approaches to architecture are often ineffective and cause great tension, especially when Agile efforts are part of the portfolio. We will discuss two principles, Vision and Partnering. These principles provide insight and get results for both architects and Agilists; and present tools and approaches on how to effectively engage architects and architecture.
I Think I Kan(Ban) - How to get your release train going with a small engine.Huet Landry
schedule 2 years agoSold Out!
This session will be an interactive exploration of how delivery teams, product owners, and organizational stakeholders can get their "story cargo" moving without first having to tear down the mountain range or create a fission-powered maglev train to carry everything including an army of kitchen sinks.
Large organizations - especially Government ones, like to talk about change, but mostly they appear interested in changing everything but themselves. Based on the concept of "The Little Engine That Could", this session is designed to help you examine ways to use Kanban and SAFe principles to get your release train accelerating even when you are being asked to haul MONSTER epic stories along the tracks that seem to be climbing up sheer cliffs of compliance regulations.
Bring your favorite "Franken-story" examples and be prepared to have fun talking about ways of getting them over the mountain range.
