Exepedia - A Scrum Coaching Model for senior leaders and managers

Exepedia is a Scrum coaching model that was innovated during the Agile Coaches Retreat in India during Feb'17.

In organisational Agile transformations, one of the biggest reasons for failure is lack of alignment by various departments and their leaders. In many cases, engineering teams are Agile while leaders are still catching up.

This models enables managers and executive leadership team to co-create a shared transformation vision; and a collaborative plan for organisational alignment. Scrum Masters and Coaches can leverage this model to coach executives, senior leaders and managers. The model consists of a set of workshops - a mix of collaborative group workshops, one-one discussions, questionnaires etc.

It perceives organisational transformation in three stages - Know, Believe and Achieve - and conceptualises the various activities during the three stages.

The proposed session helps you experience Exepedia, in a workshop style. This model is being leveraged by organisations (both large and small sizes) during their Agile transformation journey.


Outline/Structure of the Presentation

This session will be in workshop style. After introducing Exepedia and the model’s features briefly to the participants, I will facilitate a hands-on simulation activity to help understand the model. Along with the participants, I will co-create a shared transformation vision of a sample organisation (using CYOD technique). There will be no or very few slides with more images than text thus triggering interactions rather than a one-way talk.

The overall session delivery will be based on ‘Brain Science Learning’ to create higher impact. 'Training from Back of the Room' techniques will be used to facilitate the workshop, so that the participants have real take aways so that they can apply in their transformations.

Learning Outcome

If I am a Scrum Master or an Agile coach or an organisational leader or a manager, then this is the session to watch out for. Learning outcomes are below:

1. Learn to align senior leaders and top executives to a single transformation vision and co-create a collaboration plan.
2. Understand how to determine a structure to the overall Agile transformation.
3. Map Agile practices to the perceived benefits.
4. Know few metrics to measure the transformation benefits.
5. Know the features of Exepedia model in detail.

Target Audience

Agile coaches, Scrum Masters, Project Managers, Program Managers, Senior Leaders, Executives, PMO

Prerequisites for Attendees

Good to know: The model is available on a public website to use freely. It is piloted by few enterprises, and overall great feedback is being received. The model leverages Agile principles, and is built using Scrum. The model goes through continuous improvements based on feedback from coaches and customers who are large banks and other consulting organisations.

Nice to do but not mandatory: Browse through the model at www.ExepediaCoachingModel.com.

    We are delivering products, but are we delivering with required "productivity"? – This is the question, each of us need to retrospect. In the current era, agility is becoming buzzword. We witness scenarios, where people are implementing agile just because they are asked to do. We witness prescriptive agile events, where team members do not engage to the required level during agile events. If this trend continues on the ground, the result is "unproductive agile events" wasting team's productive time. If we do not correct this pattern in time, agile leads to fragile on the ground.

    Stemming from my practical insights on ground zero, I wish to share with you, the top 5 scenarios where sprint planning event can turn unproductive. For each of the 5 scenarios, I will explain

    1. Scenario Context
    2. How it went unproductive
    3. Practical problem solving

    This way, audience can take preventive steps so that the stated scenarios (from practical insights) will not recur in their sprint planning events. It helps them to retrospect what is going wrong in their sprint planning event and take steps to conduct sprint planning events through excellent team engagement. This way, they can contribute to “productive” sprint planning event.

    The very thought that “How something can go wrong” can also trigger further thoughts to make other agile events productive.

    Would like to take every one through my real-life journey of how "Agile" helped me to achieve my life time ambition of becoming a Marathoner, from a state where I was really struggling to run 500 meters to be able to complete 6 Marathons (42.2 kms), 2 Ultra-marathons (50 kms) and 12 Hours Stadium run (80 kms) in a span of 3 years.
