Difficulties of delivery planning for a large organisation

Most practitioners and teams are familiar with sprint planning as an activity for their delivery for a certain timeframe.
When it comes to multiple teams and large organisations, there is a lot of practices and different frameworks to plan delivery. Lots of organisations are familiar with Big Room and PI planning and use it for quarterly planning.
In Australia, many large organisations have tried different frameworks and have also created their own ways of working (often termed as "new ways of working", "better ways of working" etc). 

There is a challenge though, specifically when planning larger initiatives with involvement of different teams from the inside and sometimes from the outside of the organisation. These teams can have different commitments, might use different frameworks and may operate in different release cadence. How much can we and should we standardise processes and how much should teams follow their own ways of working?
There is no easy answer to this. In this interactive session, Rajesh and Gabor will work with you and help you understand what is involved in delivery planning for large organisations, including topics like shared vocabulary (e.g. taxonomy, definition of done), planning activities, tools, team activities, reporting, etc.

    Have you been working with OKR and wanting to take it to the next level? Then this is for you! After introducing OKRs with 20 odd companies and 2500 people, you make an insane number of mistakes. The good news is you learn a lot about what to do too! So, I've gone through the pain and suffering so that you don't. Here's what we'll cover:

    1. How OKR helps your align your people to focus on your purpose
    2. Tips to make OKR work well for you and common success patterns
    3. Pitfalls to avoid and how to come back from them.

    You'll walk away from this session with strong foundation to revitalise your approach to OKR and make it a "Hell yes!" idea for your team.

    Matthew Hodgson / Mia Horrigan - Measuring Enterprise Agility

    40 Mins
    Talk
    Advanced

    How do you know if you're really agile?

    Numerous industry surveys have shown organisations receive a number of benefits from being agile. Unfortunately, the collection and analysis of empirical evidence is rarely conducted. Without robust empirical measures, many turn to the symbols they can see - measuring velocity, team happiness, and getting teams to "self assess" their capability.

    This talk will give you a playbook to measure agility based on:

    • The empirical evidence and data on what makes an enterprise agile.
    • How you measure an agile culture.
    • The antecedents of agile leadership.
    • How to grow and sustain an agile culture across the enterprise.
