    Product Owners and others responsible for creating and maintaining the Product Backlog often focus on functional items.

    With good engagement in the Backlog Management process from the Development Team and Architects, technical and architectural items also find their way into the Product Backlog.

    But what about the human-centric items related to accessibility, inclusivity, internationalization and sustainability?

    Through the talk and with the help of several supporting examples and a short exercise, I would like to highlight the importance of addressing these aspects in the Product Backlog. The examples will include examples of good and bad backlog items and design decisions.

    I will also share some tips on how Product Owners and supporting roles can work these aspects into the Backlog Management process. These will include some ideas from Design Thinking but will not be limited to that.

    Individuals, their interactions and communication are highly valued in Agile.

    These values frequently find application in the form of big visible charts or information radiators.

    Yet, in a lot of large, traditional organizations who have started their journey in Agile, the public display of information, uniformly accessible to all, is unsettling.

    Through a “scary” analysis of the impact of the lack of transparency, I aim to build a really strong case for more transparency at the workplace.

    About Liberating Structures

    Liberating Structures offer a revolutionary solution to collaboration in groups. Invented by Henri Lipmanowicz and Keith McCandless, Liberating Structures are a set of microstructures (33 at the moment) that use a handful of simple rules to unleash and involve everyone - no matter the size of the group.

    About the CASE:

    In this CASE study, I will demonstrate the power of Liberating Structures in 90-mins quick Immersion using Strings (I will string 5 LS together to solve a problem to demonstrate participants how we used them in one of the Organizations that I worked to enable Organizational Agility. We used a string of LS and involved 3 in a box leaders to unleash collaboration among the 3 in a box leaders ( Program, Product & Engineering) and enabled the leaders to build consensus and unleashed collaboration.

    PS:

    There won't be any slides for this workshop. The entire activity will be demonstrated using number of LS.(Strings) and the participants will be able to easily apply them at their work.

    You could find some pictures of LS workshop from the website of mine. I am happy to provide more information if you want. I have been running the same as part of my meetups.

    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. My recommendations to make it productive

    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.

    Change is tough! Big changes are tougher!

    As people initiating change as well as people experiencing change, there are some attitudes and stances that will help us ride the wave of change rather than falter and drown.

    Some of these, amongst others, that have helped us immensely in our experiences are The Principle of Heliotropism and Ubuntu!

    We would love to share our experiences so other can learn from our failures, successes and more.

    Kshitij Agrawal - The Art of Agile Project Initiation

    45 Mins
    Presentation
    Advanced

    Most of the agile framework focus on delivery part and provide little guidance on project initiation part. This leaves many questions unanswered and leads to lack of solid foundation to lay the bricks of agility. For examples, we need to ponder on - What are right questions to ask when we are in very first meeting with the sponsor? How to guide the sponsor through a process of converting high level business idea into a vision and go about chartering exercise? How to effectively conduct project initiation workshop and start with a discovery exercise that sets the scene for a project and produces an initial backlog?
    These are some of the concerns that I would like to address in my session. I will use many real life examples and analogies to explain some of the best practices which have worked well for me in pre-project / initiation stage.
    A previous version of similar presentation was delivered in Discuss Agile Delhi2016 & in Agile NCR 2016 conferences and was very well received. It will be new for Hyderabad based agile community and I will add more based on further experience gained in past 2+ years.

    I would like to bring some acronyms from the agile world which reveals a lot of implicit meaning to the practitioners. For instance SCRUM - Self Committed Resource Unified Model, as the name indicates. The ideas is to reveal all the aspects of the agile and scrum in acronyms fashion so that everyone can understand the concept easily and may be helpful in implementing the same.

    The Control Heuristic is the overarching principle guiding all human behavior. Our brains make decisions trying to maximize the expected emotional outcome.

    At a first look, human behavior appears as an inexplicable mess. Why do we behave irrationally? Why is it so hard to change? What is happiness and why does it seem to escape us?


    The Control Heuristic approach offers a new perspective to answer these questions and provides a guiding light to shed the darkness of the subconscious resistances that prevent us to behave like the man or woman we want to be.

    This talk is about demystifying 'BEST' practices in agile way of working.

    It is my belief that Agile is always about exploration and making course-correction(inspect & adapt). By nature Agile is about flexibility, improvisation and continuous learning & exploration culture. None of the teams/organizations can stay in successful path when they run behind 'BEST' practices.

    Practices/processes that work for one team/organization/program may not work well for another. So Scrum Masters/Agile Coaches/Management/Delivery teams should always look to learn from their mistakes and assess before taking next steps.
