    Bjarte Bogsnes - Beyond Budgeting – Business agility in practice

    schedule  09:00 AM - 05:00 PM IST place Jupiter 1 people 7 Interested

    This workshop will address how an entire organization can be run in an agile way, where people and interactions are more valued than processes and tools, and where responding to change is more important than following a plan. You will get unique insights into Business Agility in practice, both from a managerial, financial and human perspective. You will benefit from Bjarte Bogsnes’ extensive experience. He has helped companies all over the world getting started on a Beyond Budgeting journey, including his employer Equinor (formerly Statoil) – where the budget (and much more) was kicked out 2005. This and many other great case stories and practical examples will be shared. 

    Learn how to trust and empower without losing control, and how to redefine performance – with dynamic and relative targets (or no targets at all) and a holistic performance evaluation. Understand how dynamic forecasting and resource allocation works, and also other examples of self-regulating management mechanisms, including transparency. Bjarte will also share insights into KPI and OKR pitfalls, and bonus problems. 

    Learn from the fringes! Understand how management innovation can provide just as much competitive advantage as technology and product innovation!

    Your team can be ten times better.

    What does that mean? That means your professional team can accomplish 10x more work, do it with 10x more quality, 10x faster, or with 10x fewer resources. Your family can be 10x happier. Your school can be 10x more effective at helping people learn. Your community group can be 10x better at making life better for the people it serves. Even you yourself can be 10x more effective at getting what you want.

    In other words, you can be great. Your team can be great.

    Greatness

    Can you say these things about your teams?

    1. My projects are completed effortlessly on schedule and within budget every time.
    2. Every team I’ve ever been on has shared a vision.
    3. In meetings, we only ever do what will get results.
    4. No one blames “management” or anyone else if they don’t get what they want.
    5. Everybody shares their best ideas right away.
    6. Ideas are immediately unanimously approved, improved, or rejected by the team.
    7. Action on approved ideas begins immediately.
    8. Conflict is always resolved swiftly and productively.

    The Core Protocols are one way to make teams that have these characteristics.

    Woody Zuill - Beyond Estimates and NoEstimates: Let's explore the possibilities

    schedule  09:00 AM - 05:00 PM IST place Mars people 1 Interested

    The default use of an "estimate-driven" approach is pervasive in software development efforts. While estimates can be useful for some things, it is worthwhile to scrutinize our use of estimates, and to seek better ways to manage the development of software when estimates are not appropriate. [NOTE: For this session, I am referring to the use of estimates of cost, time, or effort for software projects, features, or tasks.] 

    There are a number of things to explore. For example, do we really need estimates for everything we currently use them for? Are we getting a reasonable benefit from them? Is it possible to manage software development without them?

    The Deployment Pipeline is a central concept in Continuous Delivery. It represents an effective, controlled channel through which all changes destined for production pass.

    A defining objective in CD is to work so that our software is always in a "releasable state." By applying high levels of automation to our development process, in the form of a Deployment Pipeline, we pass all changes to our production systems through this channel and evaluate them prior to release. This means that the pipeline quickly becomes a strategic resource.

    As our use of this important tool grows, the performance of the pipeline, in terms of the rapidity with which it can give valuable feedback on the quality of your work, becomes a central concern.

    Agile Transformations are often treated as projects, with grand plans to implement new ways of working, with ambitious deadlines.

    This approach assumes that the result of an Agile Transformation can be knowable in advance and that all the information and expertise is already in place.

    However, an organisational transformation is a process of knowledge discovery and learning, where we need to make small changes, sense and respond.

    Thus rather than looking into the future to make our plans, we should look to the present, understand the current situation and explore adjacent possibilities.

    Concepts covered will include: 

    • Cynefin
    • Wardley Mapping
    • Directed Opportunism
    • Backbriefing
    • Catchball
    • Agendashift

    Kathy G. Berkidge - Maintaining Curiosity to Drive Innovation

    schedule  03:30 - 04:15 PM IST place Grand Ball Room 2 people 3 Interested

    Innovation doesn’t happen magically.

    Innovative products are created by first developing insights, conducting research, and performing experiments, then honing in on a solution that finally delivers the breakthrough. Curiosity, creative thinking and an exploratory mindset is needed to remain open to the new, the untried, the unconventional.

    However, ingrained attitudes, bias and assumptions impede creativity and learning. We may think we know ‘something’ and so fail to explore ‘what else’.  It’s easy to be prejudiced by our entrenched beliefs.

    So how do we stay curious and not remain stuck in our own ideas? One answer is mindfulness. Mindfulness enables us to remain open and objective. It allows us to investigate phenomena from a neutral, impartial, unbiased position. Mindfulness loosens our perceptions to see things with clarity and openness. In this session, you will learn how mindfulness helps you maintain a curious mindset that drives product innovation.

    Fred George - MicroProcess Architectures: Planning for Change, and Retaining Flexibility

    schedule  03:30 - 04:15 PM IST place Jupiter people 1 Interested

    This experience report explores three different MicroProcess architectures and the situations in which each was applied. We start with a traditional, Design Pattern-based approach which still efficiently handles customizations without resorting to complex message-passing designs. Then we follow up with a different architecture appropriate when many tasks must be done, but the order is not too important (with examples). Finally, we discuss the uber-popular MicroService architecture, but with a focus on solving the “fuzzy” problems that lack definitive answers (fraud detection, loan risk, etc.) Each of these has base code in the public domain! If your environment requires constant tweaking for individual clients, you don’t want to miss this talk!

    MicroProcess refers to a family of architectures which share some key traits:

    • Low coupling of components
    • Ease of introduction of changes
    • Simple management of variations

    The first architecture is rooted in Design Patterns (GoF book). Working through several patterns, we build a traditional architecture that retains flexibility. We include several recent applications of this process as well:

    • Command pattern: The base pattern captures individual tasks, as well as their reversal
    • Composite pattern: We glue these individual tasks into groups
    • State pattern: Handle the restoration of suspended processes
    • Visitor pattern: Extract the state of a process, necessary for resuming a process

    The second architecture is an evolution of MicroServices, without having to invest in complex cloud configuration issues. In this architecture, a Step captures the individual tasks, and Status captures the current state. The Steps are executed (in any order!) until a steady state occurs (Status is not changed). The Status then reflects:

    • Successfully results
    • Negative results (aka Errors, which need correction)
    • Pending results, and the responsible party

    Through the Status, a UI can be built to resolve pending issues and errors.The final architecture inspired the original term MicroServices. In this architecture, an event bus is used to isolate the tasks from each other, and to restrict coupling to only the message format (JSON in this case). This architecture addresses problems without clear-cut answers (“fuzzy” problems in my world) like fraud detection, decisions to lend money, finding the best advertising copy. It also supports implementation of the various tasks in the appropriate language. The use of this architecture in several projects will be discussed.

    Fred George - Sabotaging a Transformation: The Myriad of Ways an Organization Inhibits Transformation

    schedule  11:30 AM - 12:15 PM IST place Grand Ball Room people 4 Interested

    Transformations are difficult, and often simply fail. After all, change is usually disruptive. Even an organization that wants to embrace change can see mediocre results. The underlying causes vary from ignorance on how to transform, to full and hostile resistance. In this talk, we will discuss the various causes and the strategies we have used as outside consultants to overcome (or at least mitigate) this resistance to change, and create meaningful transformations with our clients.

    Transformation efforts must overcome a myriad of challenges to achieve success. Some of the inhibitors we will discuss include:

    • Executives unaware of the transformation
    • Failure to engage all the necessary parties
    • Individuals losing power with the transformation
    • New roles and disappearing roles
    • Lack of an effective Change Agent
    • Success conservatism
    • Lazy buyers
    • Blame-oriented cultures

    For each of these inhibitors, we will cite a) situations where this occurred, b) mitigation actions to overcome the inhibitor, and c) the effectiveness of these efforts. We will conclude by suggesting some best practices we are currently employing in anticipation of likely inhibitors, including our newest proposal process of only selling complete solutions to our clients (not just body-shopping people).

    Hypothesis-driven development is thinking about the development of new ideas, products and services - even organisational change - as a series of experiments to determine whether an expected outcome will be achieved, so we need to know how to design and run experiments properly.

    This session helps participants understand the importance of using experiments to help teams and organisations learn and improve, while giving hands-on practice in designing experiments to yield measurable evidence for that learning.

    Kathy G. Berkidge - Building awesome teams using the Team Collaboration Canvas

    schedule  01:30 - 03:00 PM IST place Grand Ball Room 2 people 3 Interested

    What’s the secret to successful agile initiatives? Teamwork and effective collaboration, of course.

    It’s important to set up teams for success as well as implement continuous improvement processes to ensure antipatterns and difficulties are addressed. Team chartering and retrospectives are commonly used for exactly that. However, some team charters are nothing more than a series of dot points containing generic ideas or vague statements. Learnings from retrospectives can be easily lost or forgotten. And how the team integrates with the outside world is often overlooked.

    The Team Collaboration Canvas is a new tool specifically designed to help teams to create a shared vision, confirm working agreements, and support continuous improvement. It provides a simple method for teams to capture and confirm their ways of working along with team goals, ways to improve, and importantly, the context around their work environment including how they collaborate with customers and the broader organisation. This session will explore the Team Collaboration Canvas and how to use it to build awesome agile teams.

    Amy Jo Kim - Sticky Loops and Superfans: build habit-forming products like a hit game designer

    schedule  01:30 - 03:00 PM IST place Jupiter

    Have you ever wondered how genre-defining games & products come to life?

    After working on Rock Band, The Sims, Netflix, ebay, Ultima Online, & Covet Fashion… I learned something surprising. 

    These breakthrough hits did NOT start off by going after a large TAM (total addressable market). 

    Instead, they focused on capturing a narrow “beachhead” of eager customers & grew from there. 

    And contrary to what I expected - these high-retention hits did NOT start off with polished onboarding, or fleshed-out mastery systems. 

    Instead, they started with a stripped-down “core habit loop” that gives people a reason to return - & once that’s working, they tune the loop to deliver a better experience as someone becomes more skilled.   

    So… how exactly do you build & tune a Sticky Loop that drives retention?

    And how do high-need Superfans help you iterate fast & find product/market fit? 

    In this tactical workshop, you’ll learn how to

    • use behavioral signals & “struggling moments” to identify your Superfans 
    • create sustained engagement in your product by designing Sticky Loops
    • drive adoption & retention with research-based habit-stacking

    This workshop includes in-depth examples from Rock Band, The Sims & Replika.ai. 

    If you want to build retention & accelerate product/market fit, this is for you!

    Talia McCune - Practical Project Aristotle: Bringing Google Team Effectiveness theory to life in your teams

    schedule  03:30 - 04:15 PM IST place Grand Ball Room 1 people 2 Interested

    A team is “greater than the sum of its parts”, but what does this mean in practice? Using insights from Google’s Project Aristotle research, we explore ways of getting feedback quickly to empower and improve team high performance. 

    In this session we will cover the 5 traits of High Performing Teams as defined by Google’s well-known study on team effectiveness:

    -      Psychological Safety 

    -      Dependability 

    -      Structure and clarity 

    -      Meaning 

    -      Impact 

    Using insights from a two-year data-driven survey run across 180 employees and multiple Agile Teams, we will cover learnings, tips and techniques to help you run the same in your teams. 

    If you are interested in the answers to these questions: How do we use this theory in practice in our teams? How do we improve team effectiveness using feedback from our teams? How do we empower leadership with data to improve and increase positive traits within teams?

    Tina Vinod / Vishal Prasad - Embracing DEI Enhances Agility

    schedule  03:30 - 04:15 PM IST place Grand Ball Room 2 people 2 Interested

    Today, there is no dispute that Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) should be a business priority. Significant results call out its impact on employee engagement, experience, connection, trust, performance and enabling inclusive organizational culture. 

    From its inception, Thoughtworks' approach to DEI has been fundamental to our values, culture, vision, community and business strategy. We understood early on that the true value of DEI can only be realized if it’s integrated within all aspects of the business, across functions and specifically within teams. 

    Thoughtworks has been an early adopter of agile software development and Extreme Programming (XP). As leaders in this space and an organization whose very foundation is built on the pillars of DEI, Thoughtworks has benefitted from years of following a unified approach of integrating Agility, XP and DEI principles into our software teams, thus bringing the best of these together. 

    In this talk we will share our learnings, success stories and perspectives of integrating DEI with an organisations Business Agility journey and why this is much needed in the changing landscape of our businesses today.

    Yashasree Barve - Agility in Large Transformation Programs – An oxymoron?

    schedule  03:30 - 04:15 PM IST place Jupiter

    Large transformation programs are the need of the hour given the massive amount of digital transformations that are undertaken by organizations. Be it moving away from on-premises systems to cloud or building data lakes or analytics programs or transforming business processes through an industry standard SaaS solution, it often turns out to be a multi-year, multi-vendor program with enormous amounts of dependencies.

    Agility is being able to respond to change quickly. As Andy Hunt says, one test that can tell whether one is agile or not is their ability to adapt quickly to a significant change in technology, business or market conditions. Small iterations, fast feedback, incremental development, faster time to market are typical hallmarks of any agile program.

    Then is agility in large transformation programs an oxymoron if those two look poles apart? How can one bring agility in large programs where the value delivery is at the end of a long program timeline, or where the word ‘change’ is often frowned upon.

    This talk brings to you challenges and lessons learnt from bringing in agility in transformation programs such as ERP implementation, cloud transformation, consolidation or migration efforts. The talk will discuss examples of where these efforts worked or failed, why those were used, how it was implemented and its benefits and influence on bringing agility in large programs.

    Let us together discover what is the art of possible or whether it's really an oxymoron.

    World entropy is continuously increasing – world is becoming more VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) – it can be a threat or an opportunity, one can surf the wave or drown in the water – depends on one’s Agility, be it an organization, team or individual professional.

    Agility is essentially about sense and respond – how quickly one can sense the Customer/Market needs & respond to create value and continuously adapt to the changing contexts.

    To be surviving and thriving in VUCA world one needs to constantly Innovate what they produce and how they produce & deliver/serve. Diversity is the source for Innovation and Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the basis for diversity to co-exist and collaborate. And Mindfulness is the practical way to develop Emotional Intelligence, as demonstrated by Google-Stanford program ‘Search Inside Yourself’.  

    Why is it difficult for organizations and teams to sense and adapt to the changes? Fundamentally it’s because of the inability of people to let go/unlearn the past legacy and rethink the future.

    This workshop integrates all these aspects and creates an experiential journey for participants to change the mindset, learn & apply techniques to BE Agile.

    After having prototyped and implemented Agility at team level, many organisations  particularly focus on scaling the experience at enterprise level. While there is an agreement that  Agile is an effective approach for complex systems, , we tend to paradoxically define Agile scaling models as if organisations were simple predictable systems, manageable by fixed frameworks.   This workshop is a  hands-on session that invites  participants to discover and experiment  the "2 loops" transformation model , defined  by Berkana Institute. 

    Inspired by the cycle of  living organisms, this systemic approach,  it describes how a business or social system rises,  then declines to make space for a new one, and  how change agents can effectively support  the sparks of change , while securely hospicing the old system. You will learn - and live!- what are the main roles spotted in the two loops model and how we all position ourselves in these roles in a continuously changing organisation.

    You are the character and the agent of the change you are in. The 2 loops model empowers you both ways.

    Workshop's stepstones: 

    - Dominant system: what is the dynamics of dominant systems? 

    - Emergent system : How to observe and nourish a new system? 

    -  People in the midst of change: What are the main roles spotted in the two loops model? How do we all position ourselves in these roles?

    - Driving actions: What are the actions that different change agents take to insure the transition and address the natural resistance to change?

    The deployment pipeline is a central idea in Continuous Delivery. It represents the channel through which ideas inside your business flow to the outside world so that they can be delivered to your users in the form of working software. First steps in creating a working deployment pipeline are very rewarding. They help to improve the quality of the software that you create and usually lead to happier users. 

    As teams mature in their adoption of Continuous Delivery though, the pipeline often begins to slow. We have more tests, we are testing more complex things, our software becomes more complex and more difficult to deploy.
    How do we address these growing pains? What are the next steps, beyond the CD beginner’s basic automation? How do we optimise our pipelines to meet our needs as these needs grow?
     
    This workshop will explore the growing pains in Continuous Delivery and describe some strategies to cope with them.

    Jutta Eckstein - Let’s get more – social, environmental, and economic – sustainability based on data!

    schedule  03:30 - 04:15 PM IST place Grand Ball Room 2

    The world is on fire! None of our improvements in software development will matter at all if we can’t change the course of the climate crisis. The software lifecycle creates direct and indirect carbon emissions: it has a footprint, worsening environmental problems. So, it's time to examine how agility can help to reduce energy consumption and ensure greater - environmental, social & economic - sustainability. The point is not to pursue sustainability for altruistic reasons, but to understand that over time, sustainability is also becoming a key factor that determines the success of companies, both in the search for talent and for customers and markets.
    In this session, inspect real data to gain a holistic perspective of your team or company’s current situation regarding agile sustainability. Comparative Agile Sustainability is an approach that we created in a small team with the support of data analysts that serves to anchor and promote the awareness of sustainability in an (agile) team and/or company. The evaluation was published under creative commons and is therefore freely available to all interested parties. By using the results of this validated assessment, agile teams and organizations can better understand how they can increase their own effectiveness and contribute to increasing sustainability across the industry.

    Software Teaming (Mob Programming) is a cost-effective, collaborative and fun way to get work done together. It's a whole-team approach to development, where coding, designing, testing, and working with the "customer" (partner, Product Owner, User, etc.) is all done as a team.

    In this session we'll cover some of the important ideas that I used as guidelines in  conceptualizing creating software as team.  The 4 main points I'll touch on are:

    1 - Make it Easy for everyone to excel

    2 - Turn Up The Good on the things that are going well

    3 - The Failure to Communicate (and a little on how to deal with this)

    4 - Leading from Within - the need for each of us to lead and follow dynamically

    With these things in mind, we were exploring ways to improve our ability to collaborate, and landed on the idea of Mob Programming / Software Teaming. However, these ideas have been meaningful to me in finding ways to improve our work environment.

    Fred George - MicroServices - Let’s Build Some!

    schedule  09:00 AM - 05:00 PM IST place Jupiter 1 people 3 Interested

    A hands-on development of asynchronous MicroServices using a bus architecture!

    This is the original MicroService workshop by the person who Adrian Cockcroft (of Netflix) cites as the first use of the term, MicroService. While “MicroServices” is becoming a heavily over-worked term, it has been interpreted many ways. In this hands-on workshop we will explore a particular style that matches “fuzzy” problems, that is, problems that lack a definitive solution, like fraud detection or recommendations. Using tiny asynchronous services, we create an environment that supports continuous experimentation, that was the core of one of the most successful implementations. Given an animated specification of flow, we will embark on delivering the proposed services, wrestling with the issues common to this new paradigm. Participants have a choice of languages, with new starting code in Java, C#, and Ruby. At the end of the workshop, we will discuss MicroServices challenges and organizations that are optimized for such architectures.

    It is one thing to talk about MicroServices. It is another altogether to have to build them. The instructor, Fred George, is cited by Martin Fowler as one of the co-inventors of the MicroService architecture, and cited by one of those co-inventors as the first use of the term MicroService.. He has refined it and used it extensively over the last dozen years, mostly on the “fuzzy” problems (see Dave Snowden’s Cynefin model’s Complex and Chaos segments). After a brief introduction of MicroService principles, we will watch an animation of a MicroService environment. We will start with new versions of pre-built skeleton microservice environment (RabbitMQ message bus with a couple of starter services in Java, C#, and Ruby). We will then design and implement additional services to broaden the overall functionality. These additional services can be written in any language that will run on the participant's laptop.

    While pairing is strongly encouraged, it is not required. In the final stage, different pairs will implement different services, yet they will all run together implementing the animation. Throughout the workshop, we will stop as participants come across common issues with MicroServices. We will use this time to discuss best practices. We wrap up with the participants making observations on what they learned (and how it may be different from MicroServices they are currently implementing, if any). This is followed by presentations on MicroService challenges and the organization impact of rapidly developed MicroServices.

    schedule  09:00 AM - 05:00 PM IST place Neptune people 1 Interested
     

    Leading in a transforming organisation is hard enough

    Even when vision, the aspiration, and the initiatives are all there, you’re up against three universal challenges:

    • People disengaged by the repeated failure of imposed solutions
    • Hidden systems reinforcing old behaviours, driving the same old results
    • The crucial innovations failing to materialise

    The doubts have been there for decades, and now we're calling it: traditional solution-driven approaches to change are making things harder, not easier.

    The alternative: leading with outcomes. Meaningful outcomes, authentic agreement – the right people in the room agreeing on outcomes meaningful to them, articulating them in their own words. Big outcomes, small outcomes, outcomes organised into strategy, outcomes people can organise around, outcomes that tell you when you winning. Outcomes the focus for innovation, solutions not the beginning or end of strategy but emerging at the right time from the people closest to the problem.

    You'll be learning the language of outcomes, how to generate them, how to organise them, how to pursue them in the context of strategies you and your colleagues develop together. You'll be learning also the patterns that organise the tools, make them memorable, and help you integrate what works for you already. And motivating the patterns: leadership principles, each one a strategy for getting better at strategy.

    Jutta Eckstein - Next Gen Transformational Leadership Skills

    schedule  09:00 AM - 05:00 PM IST place Mars people 2 Interested

    Many agile transformations fail because leadership lacked Next Gen skills. What can you do to make your agile transformation successful? The very first step is to understand that an agile transformation is actually a journey and not a transformation in the sense of turning a knob.

    With that understanding comes the awareness that this journey can only be fruitful if taken holistically. For example, the agile strategy has to be implemented company-wide. Thus, setting your agile strategy up for success requires implementation on all levels - from top management to every team – and in all areas – e.g., performance appraisals, budgeting, or personal development.

    The VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) times we’re living in request situational leadership. Thus, it is essential to be aware of the situation and context and understand that there is no one-size-fits-all leadership style.

    Next Gen leaders smoothly switch between servant leadership, support, coaching, and also directing and delegating.In this workshop, we will explore the essential skills of Next Gen transformational leaders. These skills ensure to get full buy-in from your team and/or your peers, understand how to increase the awareness of a situation and how to lead with a holistic understanding.
