Outrun to Daytona USA - Creating roadmaps for success

schedule Sep 27th 10:45 - 11:35 AM place Z306 people 25 Interested

The classic arcade game Outrun (1986) was a critical and commercial success for Sega. But in 1994 Sega released Daytona USA which became one of the highest grossing arcade games of all time.

The reason - roadmaps! Knowing where you are heading makes it easier for you to create a strategy for success.

This workshop will show you how to level up your roadmaps and break-free of the Gantt chart mentality of many roadmap providers

    Rebecca Harris / Estelle Vorster / Scott Mayoh - Unlocking SRG – our journey to enhanced agility

    25 Mins
    Talk
    Beginner

    Over the last 18 months Super Retail Group (SRG) has been on a journey to move to a new way of working.

    This talk focusses on the why, what and how of decreasing their time from Idea to Value.

    Now more than ever innovation and agility at pace is required to respond to the ever increasing pressures of

    the now economy. This pressure is felt enormously in the retail business.

    Hear how the SRG agile journey started by answering into the WHY. Once buy in was obtained WHAT did they stop, start and continue

    and HOW did they go about doing this? What worked, what didn’t and what have they learnt so far.

    This session talks to the hilarious/scary behaviour that surrounds estimates and forecasts.

    I'll look to discuss:

    • why teams need to estimate
    • some of my own funny experiences when discussing estimates with teams
    • the difference between estimates and forecasts
    • probabilistic vs deterministic forecasting methods

    You'll level up by being more aware of the problematic behaviours with estimates, and how probabilistic forecast methods can help.

    When working in the transformation game, teams we encounter will often provide reasons why agility concepts wont work "for them"...

    "we are already performing!" "we have too much unplanned work to do any planning!" "we each have our own individual work to get done!" and so on :)

    But what do you do when your own transformation team is tempted by some of these thoughts?

    This talk tells the story of a team driving an agile/devops transformation, consisting of diverse skillsets and a collection of "individual work" - who levelled up their team mojo by focusing on the core principles of collaboration, adaptive planning and continuous improvement!

    I'll share the elements I believe made us successful - and leave you with some practical tools and techniques that we use on a daily basis to support one another, stay outcome focused, constantly improve and have fun along the way :)

    Its easy to be daunted by the stories of great agile development organisations but they all started somewhere. I will talk about how AgJunction started their journey to becoming agile by setting basic rules and creating a learning environment where experimentation was encouraged. In an organisation that aims to provide “Hands-free farming for everyone” by producing both hardware and software for the agricultural industry. The standard agile methods don’t really work when you can be at the mercy of the gods and not be able to test due to rain hail and snow. So instead of using a method that we knew would not work we created something simple and empowered the team to mould it into the AgJunction Agile Method.
