      Lakshmidhar Dhulipala / Vidya Bhushan - Agile Adoption Challenges in a Project Based Model

      45 Mins

      IT organizations have grown in size, scale, and complexity over a period of time. The growth has been exponential with organizations spreading across multiple geographies and cultures. Traditionally IT teams have been working in Project based model with teams structured around developing, supporting and maintaining applications. Waterfall was a predominantly used methodology in the past. In order to reduce time to market and deliver high value features to end customers faster, Agile methodologies were invented at the start of the millennium. Product organizations were the early adopters of Agile & DevOps practices pioneering the formation of feature teams. Looking at the benefits of Agile, non-Product organizations have also followed the suite to reap benefits, serve their customers better & faster and gain competitive advantage over their rivals. Traditional Project based operating models doesn’t allow organizations to transform effectively from waterfall setup to Agile due to rigid organization structures, spaghetti of application landscape, siloed thinking, local optimization approaches and lack of end customer perspective.

      Is your Organization not able to transform quickly to Product based model and feature team structure due to large size and complexity? Are you curious to know how to bring change in your current operating model, team structures and organization culture & mind-set? What should be the pace of this transformation? Though the ultimate goal is to move to Product based model, how can your organization still address the challenges in the interim? More to come with this talk…

      Case Study

      Collaboration spaces, agile floor-plans, open office it or hate it, you can't ignore it.

      From our experience across various companies - some with 6 feet high cubicles walls to some with completely modern collab workspaces - we would like to share what seems to work and what doesn't.

      We would also link it to underlying mindsets and cultures and when and why some spaces seem to work better than others.

      We would also give examples of very high collaboration in very silo-ed workspaces - and when and why that works!

      Change is tough! Big changes are tougher!

      As people initiating change as well as people experiencing change, there are some attitudes and stances that will help us ride the wave of change rather than falter and drown.

      Some of these, amongst others, that have helped us immensely in our experiences are The Principle of Heliotropism and Ubuntu!

      We would love to share our experiences so other can learn from our failures, successes and more.

      Expect a lot of anecdotes!
