    "It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change "- Charles Darwin

    In life and work, we all experience change - big, small, good, bad, dramatic, sometimes it comes in a huge wave, and other times it trickles gently. Despite the presence of change all around us, individuals and organizations, by nature, are resistant to change. They would rather stay in their comfort zone and status quo than change

    Change is inevitable not only in life but in business too. The modern workplace is defined by constant change . Organizations are continually being forced to transform and evolve as a result of competition and technology. We may not always agree with changes, but when companies change, so must we.

    In this fast-paced world, being adaptive and willing to embrace change guarantees that we see change as an opportunity to learn, explore, and thrive even in the face of adversity.

    Research has shown that the ability to embrace change is key for growth in individuals and has a massive impact on the happiness and success of people.

    In this talk, through the medium of engaging storytelling, you will learn why do people resist change, explore a tool that aids in enabling change at an individual, team, and organizational level, and learn its practical application through a Case Study.

    HIGHLIGHT: You will discover and explore a new model, the "AAAAHA Model" (the original model of the speaker). It is a six-step model for embracing change, which will enable you to accept change naturally and use change as an 'opportunity' and 'strength' to transform your life.

    Poulomi Nath - Training and Coaching for Agile Mindset through Movies

    45 Mins

    The aim of this talk is to introduce a technique of imparting knowledge about Agile Tenets to the non-initiated and/or team members who need reinforcement in their understanding of tenets of agility in teams, collaboration, XP practices and dependency resolutions in an agile par lance. The modus of operandi is to take a popular movie, which in this case is Lord of the Rings, and derive analogies from the movie that defines some core concepts of an agile journey with team, dependency resolution and a couple of agile engineering techniques including XP practices that are result driven in this era of distributed agile teams. The intent is to make it a fun session with an audio-visual link for deeper entrenchment and retention of the understanding it intends to impart. This sort of immersive learning with audio visual aims at connecting the learnings to existing neural pathways to create an understanding of the tenets of Agility in a language that everybody understands - "Movies and Fun".

    Priya Malhotra / Usha Ramaswamy - Hello, I’m Culture…Did you forget me in your transformation journey???

    45 Mins

    Any transformation journey usually has a roadmap that focuses on process, tools, technology and people. Studies have shown that some key reasons why transformations fail are due to cultural aspects. However, culture is often ignored and we expect magic to happen quickly. Hence, a transformation needs to weave in culture shift as a critical part of the roadmap.

    We delve into…

    • What constitutes culture?
    • Why should a transformation look into culture shift?
    • A ‘culture gauge’ as a tool to calibrate the cultural aspects
    • The E3R model as a recipe to plan the culture shift journey
    • The elements of ‘thin slice’ and ‘1% improvement’ as key ingredients

    … we weave in our stories of failure, some good practices and envision how we would use the culture gauge and E3R model.

    Nilesh Kulkarni / Parul Bhargava - Seven strategies to make your transformations stick

    45 Mins

    70% of all transformations fail .

    Rather than failing visibly, transformations usually decline.CEOs and leaders put in huge efforts, and involve external partners - business targets improve, sometimes radically, those engaged feel they have achieved transformation and then gradually the organization reverts to old ways of working. 

    How many times have we heard from top management that "We have gone through three transformations in the last ten years, and each time we are back where we started 12 months prior”

    The session help you get answer to these questions - 

    • Why do you  struggle to achieve lasting impact in your transformation ? 
    • What are Leading indicators of sustainable transformation (or not)?
    • How can you make your transformation stick?

    Prashanth Ramakrishnan / Sunit Parekh - Getting ready for disasters with chaos engineering using LitmusChaos

    45 Mins

    A predictable system is a myth. System failures are inevitable. The only way out is to be prepared for failures by building resilient systems and we explore chaos engineering as a way to do exactly that. Chaos testing, a part of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), is the art of simulating unexpected system failures to test system response and recovery plan.

    Session covers the "How" by showcasing live demo of chaos testing as network disruption and out of storage on workloads deployed on a Kubernetes cluster using Litmus chaos toolkit. Also talk about practical tips on approaching how to get chaos testing as part of your path to production and delivery with confidence. Going to share tips, tricks and gotchas while getting chaos engineering practice in your organisation.

    Case Study

    We were part of an engagement with a client who wanted to transform themselves from legacy ways of working and tools to being Agile in terms of tech and business. We had a limited in resources, be it time, people and scope. It was a humongous task and we couldn't get overwhelmed with what we had in hand. 

    We had to stick to the basics and focus on the principles of XP rather than bogged down by getting into the immense number of rituals and practices and see where it takes us. And apparently we gained the trust of the clients in 3 months and we where able to get subsequent work.
