Going beyond Agile - Lessons from Large Programs
While we as agilists are focused on leveraging several practices and frameworks, creating psychological safety, self organization, empowerment and learning cultures; large programs require all of that but much more to achieve true agility. We need to go beyond agile to achieve true agility. The session will share insights from my own experience leading large delivery programs and organization wide agile transformations. Participants will get insights into areas they need to develop as leaders and into creating truly agile organizations that succeed beyond just the practices implementation.
The talk was presented on 21st Dec 2019 at Agile Network India - Pune meetup. In a true agile fashion, that was a a prototype and the slides attached are from that talk. The actual talk for scrum gathering will be upgraded further and will not have the same slides.

Functional requirements expressed in user stories, features, and capabilities represent most of the work in building solutions that deliver value to the user
The non-functional requirements, like security, usability, or regulatory needs are defined as acceptance criteria or in definition of done.
These requirements serve as important constraints for the team – leading it to a solution. Non-functional requirements are not optional, yet many a times these are missed the common reason being “Everybody knows’. Assuming the teams understand non-functional constraints leads to a lack of explicit definition and subsequent failure to define them.
What if we could use leverage games to uncover these non-functional requirements and explicitly define them?
What if we could make this entire activity fun rather than a stressful exercise?
Can this improve collaboration within the team and with customers?
We will find out…
In this fun activity we shall leverage Story cubes to get those creative juices flowing to uncover the most missed non-functional requirements.
