    As an executive, learn how to create a culture in your Product Development Organisation that Delivers On-Time and Under-Budget, every time.

    The Problem: Even when having an Agile organisation, projects tend to deliver late and over budget. As a result, executives can not promise delivery times and meet them, and they can not set prices and ensure a profit.

    The Solution: There is now a growing group of companies that do things differently. They have learned how to deliver on-time and under-budget, every time. Maybe even more importantly, they have learned to deliver the expected improvements desired by their customers and stakeholders.

    DateTime: This workshop is scheduled on Oct 12th and 13th from 2 PM to 6 PM IST (4 hours each day)

    Creating a Product Development Organisation that Delivers On-Time and Under-Budget, every time.

    The Problem: Even when having an Agile organisation, projects tend to deliver late and over budget.

    The Solution: There is now a growing group of companies that do things differently. They have learned how to deliver on-time and under-budget, every time. Even more importantly, they have learned to deliver the expected improvements desired by their customers.

    Talk content: In this talk, Kai Gilb will present cases of what is possible to achieve and what these companies do differently to be able to deliver on-time and under-budget, every time.

1. What got you started/interested in Agile?

My father and mentor Tom Gilb is recognized as the grandfather of Agile. I was personally teaching large organisation how to break down their waterfall style projects into weekly cycles in the early 1990s. Even today I hold the Agile community only got a small part of the short cycle concept, as they are focused on delivering code, not outcomes.

2. What do you think is the biggest challenge faced by the Agile community today?

Too much religion. To be 'Agile' should not be a goal. The goal should be to deliver maximum value to stakeholders with limited resources. Various Agile techniques can be helpful.

The Agile community desperately need to learn how to capture, describe, develop, deliver, maintain and evolve, the real improvements the stakeholders need.

3. Tell us about the session(s) you will be presenting at the conference and why did you choose those topics?

I will teach techniques to deliver maximum value to stakeholders, on-time, and under budget. For real!

There are several elements that need to be done differently to be able to achieve that. 

4. What are some of the key takeaways from your session(s) at Agile India?

From my talk: You will see, and hopefully be motivated, from real cases, that organizations can learn to deliver value to stakeholders, within budgets, on-time. And usually 10X more value than the competitors. And I will highlight the key methods that will make it happen.

From my 1 day workshop: I will teach how to make that happen in more detail. Specifically from a high-level executive/manager's point of view.

5. Which are your favourite sessions at Agile India this year? (Sessions that you are looking forward to attending)
