      Vamsi Krishna Kakkireni - Are you delivering "VALUE" to customer? - PLS DO SIR

      45 Mins
      Talk
      Advanced

      What keeps a business ticking? Customer value.

      • Do you know that 75% of consumers are willing to pay more if they love the product?
      • Have you realized that around 60% of features in a product are rarely or never used.

      With this, it is evident that users do not buy or use all that you build and they pay more if they love it. Hence it is important to plan, prioritize and produce as per customer value. But what makes a product lovable and how to win customers?

      In this session, I am going to discuss in detail about the new techniques i.e. "PLS DO SIR" which I have implemented with 10+ Scrum teams, how to make a product lovable, how asking the right questions helped us in uncovering issues, how to build undaunted teams and when to engage customers.

      You can deliver great "VALUE" to your customer if you can take care of the above.

      One of the prime goals of successful Agile transformation is delivering small chunk of value that has big chunk of returns. Every organization has many features in their To-Do list, but how can we identify that small chunk of value from a plethora of customer needs? What is that one primary skill needed which helps individuals at all levels to build the culture of Agility? If we observe closely, simple questions like "What is the benefit from developing this feature?" will enable us with more insights and surfaces right value for development. It is clearly evident that Asking questions comes before Agility and it is the first step to Agility!

      With small steps, incrementally, we can improve Team's Asking skills and this presentation highlights the importance of "Asking". This presentation also lays its foundation on a survey, which I conducted recently. The results of the survey clearly show that teams, which did more asking, have witnessed effective value delivery more often. In the process, the presentation also introduces two new measures called "Team asking quotient" and "Value delivery quotient" which are calculated by assessing 7 important areas that determine the overall asking maturity of a team.

      Bhanu Golconda / Arudra Ayyapu / Vamsi Krishna Kakkireni - Information radiators Boon or Bane? - A novel approach

      45 Mins
      Talk
      Intermediate

      Information radiators help us take better decisions in the value stream and agility comes to life. But do all information radiators help us to take better decisions? In this presentation, we share some light on what all information radiators have helped us take better decisions in our journey as Scrum masters by highlighting some boons and banes. We also cover guidelines, benefits and also list "Minimum lovable information radiators(MLIR)" that can help us be more agile each and every day.

      Are all the information radiators meant for every one in the organization?

      Towards the end of session a 15 min workshop will focus on answering above question and how we can bring role based accountability to make information radiators more effective and Boon to the organization.

      Most of us must be aware of Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) approach for creating wealth. If an enterprise need to be transformed from being Legacy to Lean, one can take a similar SIP approach viz., Invest in Systems, Innovation and People. Just as how one monitors their financial investments, similarly lean transformation needs to be monitored to check if they are getting the intended results.

      Intermediate

      We must be aware of the six tastes of food viz., Sweet, Salt, Sour, Bitter, Astringent and Pungent. Any food will have one or a combination of these tastes. In this presentation, I would be talking about 6 aspects of agile coaching in relation to these 6 tastes. As a coach, you can use any one or a combination of these 6 aspects for becoming an effective coach in any agile transformation.
