What's the value in not valuing the values of "Agile" & "Scrum"?

Alignment of my personal values with the value system of any organization is crucial for me to help the organization deliver “Value”.

I believe that the value system is the base for any organization to excel in their respective agile journey but then whenever I join a new organization, it amuses me to observe a number of things that are not aligned to the Agile Values.

In this talk, I will be going through the observations based on my previous experiences and how I have had tied it back to the "Values" of Agile & Scrum in order to help the squads and the organizations with their agile journey.


Outline/Structure of the Presentation

  1. Starting with the following 4 Values of Agile by quoting the challenges that I have had faced during my stint with different organizations & how I have had addressed those challenges with the real world examples.
  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools - 5 mins
  • working software over comprehensive documentation - 5 mins
  • customer collaboration over contract negotiation - 5 mins
  • responding to change over following a plan - 5 mins

2. Explaining the "Why" behind the 5 Values of Scrum & quoting how I have had helped the organization with regards to imbibing these values which in turn enabled the agility across the organizations.

  • Focus - 3 mins

  • Openness - 3 mins
