    Ashutosh Bhatawadekar - Changing Narrative - From Measuring IT Output To Business Outcomes

    45 Mins

    As coaches, our focus on any Agile transformation is limited to measuring IT Output (e.g. Velocity, Defects, Lead Time, Cycle Time etc.)

    However the real value from Agility an organization can reap benefits are whether Agile has really harvested Business Outcomes or not. In my talk, I will talk about how to move from a focus on IT Output to Business Outcomes

    In my talk, I will talk about how to move focus from IT Output to Business Outcomes.

    Few important areas, I cover include :

    • What is a Business Outcome?
    • How Business Outcome contributes to Value Realization?
    • Who formulates Business Outcomes?
    • How an Agile Coach facilitate the achievement of Business Outcome
    • Traceability between IT Output- Business Outcome - Value Realization
    • Business Outcomes with examples (NPS, Release frequency etc.)

    This talk wants to bring about a Realization that Transformation and Agile are not brand new ideas, it is very natural for us. The Spiritual scripters have been providing the path to success, following Agile from thousands of years. The battle with anxiety, jeopardy, non-existent “Asat” is not new. The Bhagavad Gita and Vedas have the guiding principles, which focus on helping us understand the Spiritual Ethereal nature and guide us realize and relish it.

    Spirit of Gita: Gita was spoken to Arjuna, when he was at the cross-road and unable to decide the next path in a Loose-Loose situation. Facing an existential crisis, undecided on What I am doing here? What am I meant to do ? Can I change ? Should I change ? The Gita Solution : When nothing external works, we are supposed to look deep inwards. Learning leads to healing, bringing things back to natural order.

    The Agile manifesto, Scrum events and other modern nomenclature brought about some modern-day thinkers bear a clear resemblance from these manuscripts. This presentation tries to blend the mantras from Gita and Vedas and tries to give todays context to them. This talk gives actionable items to audience after touching their deepest layer of belief, Identifying , who am I , what is my destiny and what am I supposed to do.

    The modern (Western) management concepts of vision, leadership, motivation, excellence in work, achieving goals, giving work meaning, decision making and planning, are all discussed in Bhagavad Gita. There is one major difference. While Western management thought too often deals with problems at material, external and peripheral levels, the Bhagavad Gita tackles the issues from the grass roots level of human thinking. Once the basic thinking of man is improved, it will automatically enhance the quality of his actions and their results.

    This concept of linking Agile to Indian Ethos will make the audience feel comfortable and the learning very easy. It will provoke revolutionary thoughts in the participants mind and make them think, that they should cooperate with each other for their collective benefit. This talk also will try to shake the belief , that mindset cannot be changed.

    Priya Patra / Nagini Chandramouli - Don’t worry, be happy, be Agile !

    45 Mins

    It has been deliberated and accepted that

    Happy employees lead to happy customers.

    Delivering innovative, high quality software at a steady pace requires motivated, involved and happy teams.

    Happiness is strongly correlated with team well-being.

    So, a team that’s happy, will also be more efficient, more cohesive, more ready for the tasks at hand and will deliver higher quality software.

    But how do you interpret happiness? Happiness is said to be a subjective state-of-mind.

    Can we as Agile leaders delve into this secret of happiness to deliver value to our customers?

    Can we create an environment that induces happiness?

    In this session we will discuss

    1.What is happiness ?

    1. Can we measure happiness ?
    2. Can individual happiness roll up to team happiness or organizational happiness ? May be not, we will deep dive on this
    3. Can happiness create can create connections and unique moments that can improve collaboration ? ( e,g ring the bell experiment)
    4. Can a happy team be more innovative and agile?
    5. Tools to analyse happiness ( Search Inside Yourself , Crisp Happiness Index) or tailor made
    6. Some enablers for happiness ( Pat on the back, thank you handshake)

    Any change fails predominantly because of 2 reasons – because it tries to change the way WE work; and because it tries to change the way I work.

    WE denote an organization – with all its culture and structures. And if any change interferes with the organization’s existing belief system itself, it treats that new change as a virus – as a threat to its existence and way of living – and kills it. Much like a bad organ transplant.

    But, there is also an equally, if not more, important “I” part… “How I work”. This is purely an individual decision. And these individuals, who are the most complex system within an organization. How people will respond to change is difficult to predict. It’s all about understanding the perspective of the people affected by the change.

    We need to transform how our brain thinks in order to transform how our organization works.

    Priya Patra - Good to Great user stories with Story cubes

    45 Mins

    Functional requirements expressed in user stories, features, and capabilities represent most of the work in building solutions that deliver value to the user
    The non-functional requirements, like security, usability, or regulatory needs are defined as acceptance criteria or in definition of done.

    These requirements serve as important constraints for the team – leading it to a solution. Non-functional requirements are not optional, yet many a times these are missed the common reason being “Everybody knows’. Assuming the teams understand non-functional constraints leads to a lack of explicit definition and subsequent failure to define them.

    What if we could use leverage games to uncover these non-functional requirements and explicitly define them?

    What if we could make this entire activity fun rather than a stressful exercise?

    Can this improve collaboration within the team and with customers?

    We will find out…

    In this fun activity we shall leverage Story cubes to get those creative juices flowing to uncover the most missed non-functional requirements.

    ‘Visual Management/Control’ is a very common tool and technique used outside Agile world – Traffic light system, Medical departments, Manufacturing Industries etc. The same is well adopted in ‘Lean Manufacturing’.

    When it comes to Agile teams – we have enough circumstances where effective implementation of ‘Visual Management’ have resulted in better outcomes – Sprint boards, Velocity charts, burnt down charts, User Story Mapping, Value Stream mapping etc. We have many tools to support this – JIRA, TFS etc. The benefits of employing this can be end-less. One of the major benefits are that, it enables the self-organizing teams to visualize their progress and hence allows ‘Better governance of Agile teams’.

    I would be discussing my experiences of using ‘Visual tools and techniques’ and how it has helped the teams
