    Harikrishan Verma - Thinking beyond - Getting out of silos

    45 Mins
    Talk
    Intermediate

    We are engineers and we know how to write code.

    We are QA engineers and we know how to test an application or product.

    There are so many roles and so many perspective about the product / application team is building. Everybody is right in their perspective. Then the question is....are we/they missing something?

    This session is going to explore the perspective beyond the perspective of an individual in team. We will try to move from individual perspective to a common perspective which is so much critical for each individual. We will talk about the user perspective and how it is important to get the 'out of box' picuture over a 'in side box' picture.

    Harpreet Singh - Agile Product Development : Entrepreneurial Way

    30 Mins
    Talk
    Intermediate

    Entrepreneurship in product development is all about raising agile concepts to entrepreneurial level in a way that would clinch success by innovation, autonomy, proactiveness, risk-taking and other characteristics associated with entrepreneurship. 

    The present paper describes briefly how to make a Agile product development approach as entrepreneurial. An entrepreneur has high level of personal ownership and this is due to the fact that an entrepreneur understands that failure is not an option, so this approach of personal ownership sets performance standard high. Similarly entrepreneurial project manager understand that if the project fails then the organization fails. This paper also talks about three main aspects of entrepreneurial project management which are entrepreneurial orientation, entrepreneurial management and entrepreneurship strategy.

    In traditional risk management process, a complete list of potential risks with their priority and a plan to mitigate them is prepared upfront. A lot of time and effort is spent towards these hypothetical risks both in upfront planning and in ongoing monitoring and discussion.

    While in Agile, the process is rather emergent in nature. The realization of risk occurs quickly and abruptly. Team gets a sense of it at the earliest possible stage, delay time is less as the risk gets highlighted in the daily stand up, review, retrospectives or release/sprint planning meetings. It is more a real time thing in Agile. But are an application of these Agile practices enough to manage risks in an Agile bound project? Or with little adjustments can the traditional risk management be more powerful with Agile methods?

    The session will contain a comparative analysis of risk management in both the methodologies, some real life examples, case studies and how the traditional risk management process can be tailored fit for Agile. It will be a talk cum open discussion session.

    Retrospective is an important ceremony required to complete the PDCA loop, however it is often ignored and does not deliver value.

    Scrum Masters have struggled to implement effective retro sessions within their teams, and this problem is compunded which Scrum Scales. In a scaled (or multi team) situation, it is imperative to be able to aggregate retro feedback from teams, into a broader, organization wide improvement plan.
