The Art of Crafting High Performing Teams

Dojo Labs is an Agile product development framework built on the concept of hyper sprints. Dojo Labs as a process framework is built on the fundamentals of SCRUM, XP, and Agile Dojo. It enables teams to build “E-shaped” skills with high technical agility. This talk is about our experiences with respect to our experiments with dojo as a product development framework across different domains. Our experiences include mostly learning from failures and successes and hence the session would be driven by case studies. We will also be discussing our studies on teams that adopted dojo as a way of working which showcased substantial improvement in predictability, productivity, and technical agility. We will also touch upon how dojo acted as a constructive constrain to triggers change for good. Last but not the least we will also discuss our SENSEI program which helped us scale our dojo capability of practitioners

    Hi Ranjith, thank you for submitting to RSGI 2019. This session seems to be an interesting piece around "Life labs". Could you please share the slide deck supporting your talk for the review team?

    Trunk based development is an agile engineering practice to attain a state of continuous deployment, but what is being observed in the industry is that most of the teams struggle to apply this concept .This workshop is a practical keyboard driven workshop which will enable the participants to have a in-depth understanding and know how to apply the concept.Workshop will cover typical antipatterns and myths related to trunk based development.
