    For many years now, agile practices have been the bedrock for repeatable software development and delivery. The rapid advent of cloud, IoT, AI & ML and the likes are presenting a new set of challenges where Innovation is rapid, evolutionary and continuous. In the light of continuous innovation becoming a norm, not having a sustainable, automated and repeatable software development and delivery street is a perfect recipe for disaster.

    In Scrum we ask the Development Team to be self organized. We ask the team to manage the Sprint and make all decisions necessary to decide how to build a working potentially releasable product increment each Sprint. This is a challenge for many teams. It could be that the team members are not used to self organization and does not know exactly how to achieve it. It can be that the organization itself does not allow the development team to fully self organize.
    In this presenttaion Arne Åhlander will describe building blocks to use to achieve self organiztion in any team. The presentation will be practically applicable and based upon the latest research and experience in the field of self organization.

    Jayaprakash Puttaswamy - Role of Leaders in developing technical agility - Myths and Enablers

    45 Mins
    Talk
    Intermediate

    Many of us including leaders get confused when it comes to "role of leaders" in developing technical agility across the teams of an organization. When we delve deeper, we often find that leaders do not think they have a role in it and consequently they even don't develop technological savvy which is a critical leadership competency that has emerged globally. It has a deep connection with enabling technical agility in the teams.

    In this 45 mins talk, I'll define a leadership competency called "Developing technological savvy" and explain its deep relationship with developing technical agility at team and organizational level.

    I'd then be sharing my experience as a Leader as well as a Coach, how I develop my own technological savvy regularly and how I help leaders develop theirs.

    Finally, I would share a few myths and enablers to increase awareness in leaders on how & why they should develop technical agility of their teams across the organization to get real benefits of "agile ways of working".

    When we face a challenge what we often see is the 85% things which we might not have control over and end up feeling helpless. Being in a VUCA(Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) world we face situations like these quite frequently both in professional and personal life. Imagine if you are in one such situation yet you get good results, how great it would be? Because there are still a few things which we call the 15% solution to a problem which we fail to see as its like our shadow and best seen by others.

    15% solution is similar to moving a few rocks to change the course of a river. This activity is exactly about moving a few rocks to find great solutions to the challenges we are facing NOW, just thinking about what is the best you can do without more resources, authority or permissions, by just doing the things in your control

    In this session we would explore 15% solution along with Troika

    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.

    Let's get onto a journey

    From "No" /"Yes, but" to "Yes, and"!

    Improv is the act of working together to build something new from a bunch of quickly generated ideas, disposing quickly that don’t work and building on the things that do along the way. The more an improv team works together, the more they trust each other, and the better they know each other’s’ strengths and how to use them. Isn’t it Agile Teams also all about?

    Scrum practices establish visibility, remove impediments, and promote collaboration at the team level. Standup meetings, physical task boards, and focus on clearing impediments are well known practices to keep a team focused on the work, and establish a sense of flow towards frequent, tangible, and sustainable results.

    What about working at a large scale , when tens, hundreds, or thousands of teams are involved? How can a large organization exploit the same core practices when there is highly interdependent work, and when there may be hundreds of people involved? How the can practices create the same level of accountability for executive leadership as they do for teams?

    The Scrum @ Scale Framework offers a powerful set of practices for networks of teams to surface and act on impediments, and create hyper-productivity throughout the organization. From the team level to the Executive Action Team, an enterprise can learn to "eat" it's own impediments, and use them to nourish improvement and performance at a scale no one could have conceived of before.

    This workshop will introduce valuable, proven Scrum @ Scale practices for large programs. Among the topics that will be discussed are:

    • How can the basic Scrum Master principles and practices be applied to large programs and enterprises?: The Scrum @ Scale Scrum Master Cycle

    • The Scrum of Scrums Impediment Board: Visible impediments, dependencies and milestones at an enterprise

    • The Scaled Daily Scrum: Lightweight activities to promote visibility, clear impediments and collaboration across the program

    • What does it look like when it’s working?: Optimize delivery time, increase quality, and establish improvement across the organization.

    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.

    Agility requires experimenting continuously in order to Inspect & Adapt continuously and to Learn continuously. So, it's not just failing fast, but learning fast. In this workshop, which is based on the concept of 'Probes' from BOSSA nova, we will learn what learning fast means for every individual and the organization as a whole.

    By definition, Probes are small, safe-to-fail experiments based on hypotheses derived from reflection via per-learning on the current situation as well as on theory. This is such a great tool not just for Agility enablers but for anyone who wants to bring in change. They can design their own safe-to-fail experiments considering all aspects, and not just but also get validation from peers, users and approvers of the experiment.

    We will learn to define experiments that you can use in your company for bringing agility. This will allow you to create an environment for continuous innovations, an environment where everyone is enrolled which will further create a win-win for everyone.

    “What does a great employee experience look like from end to end?”

    The customer experience is about the customer's perception of everything that happens when he or she interacts with our service.

    The bitter reality is that most organizations are just focused on customer experience, ignoring their employees who should be at the center of this. This creates a disengaged employee base within an organization.

    Similar to the customer experience, the employee experience is the employee’s perception of everything that happens when he or she interacts with our company. Seeing the world through the eyes of our employees is a first prerequisite to improving or designing a great employee experience - and creating a higher level of employee engagement.

    Done well, design thinking for employee experience will promote a virtuous cycle, generating higher levels of employee satisfaction, greater engagement, and higher productivity for the company. And generating the higher level of employee engagement is a critical aspect of agile leadership.

    Are you, as an agile leader, providing your employees with the most engaging experience to actively participate and improve how the entire organization moves toward agility?

    P.S.: A study by employee engagement measurement platform CultureAmp shows a strong correlation between employee engagement scores and Glassdoor ratings (CultureAmp, 2019). If we compare the Glassdoor ratings of mature agile organizations to overall Glassdoor ratings, we see statistically significant and measurably increased ratings.

    The worldwide cost of attrition and low engagement is upwards of USD 600 billion every year! Surveys by ADP and others have shown that employee engagement levels in India stand at approximately 22% as of 2018. This means as much as 78% of the workforce is not engaged. Think about the tremendous impact we as agile practitioners can make in our organizations, if we increase engagement levels. Even a slight increase in team engagement can result not only in cost savings for the company but also increased performance and greater happiness levels among team members. In fact, happiness levels within the team has been found to directly impact performance and velocity.

    In this interactive talk we will explore current engagement levels, review the latest research on metrics that influence employee engagement, understand the tremendous and far-reaching benefits of creating a fun, engaging workplace (drawn from research by Amy Edmondson and others) and brainstorm ideas to increase engagement in our teams and our organizations at large.

    Through inclusive facilitation approaches like 1-2-4-all, 25/10 crowdsourcing, gallery walk and others we will collectively generate ideas for increasing engagement in our teams.

    By the end of this session you'll have concrete ideas to carry back to your teams and start implementing all while having a lot of fun!

    What is leadership Agility?

    This workshop will introduce a promising framework for leaders to increase Self-awareness in them and help them connect the "Why" and "How" part. Over the years,

    I have learned that the future is already here and that your organization’s survival is based on several critical factors—including its ability to be agile — one of the essential drivers to achieve this through leadership agility.

    Learning objective:

    -Introduce four areas that a Leader should all focus on.

    -Use Ken Wilber’s integral model as an anchor point.

    -Use “I\Its” quadrants

    -Relate I/its Quadrant as the Future Focus of Leadership

    - Increase self-awareness on what quadrant we are residing.

    Discussion:

    -Agile Leaders need to keep the balance to focus on all four areas

    -Too much focus on the right two quadrants (and none on the left) leads to disengagement and mechanical agile implementations

    -Too much emphasis on the left two-quadrant (and none on the right) leads to a lack of results and ambiguity

    What's Unique?

    I would extend this Wilber Model with a few practices that would help leaders to move from Impasse to Insights

    This workshop is 100% activity-oriented and will enhance awareness level in Leaders.

    A powerful tool help leaders to balance "I" vs "We" quadrant. Connect the "Vision" and "People" in an Enterprise.
