Agility Behaviour Model - Patterns for transformations
Everyone wasn't to adopt Agile. Everyone wants to find the silver bullet that will make them Agile. Everyone wants the 'quick fix' for old problems. Through our collective experience, we've identified a core set of behaviours, experiences and actions that represent the desired state of Agility in an enterprise.
This core training module is designed to start your understanding of how the Agility Behaviour Model works and how to apply its tools for maximum benefits to your clients and enterprises. The workshop covers 4 specific areas:
1) Designing a new Enterprise Culture,
2)Designing the new Shared Experiences,
3)Creating a Roadmap for Enterprise Agility,
4)Creating a Coaching Plan
- Attendees will receive a digital certificate for completion of the core module.
- Each delegate will also receive a 1-year membership token to the Agility Behaviour Model community portal (valued at $100 each).
- Delegates can pursue full accreditation by completing the recommended self-study and post-training exercises.
Join us for the half-day immersive workshop that has been designed to give you new tools and approaches.
Devops = Culture + Ownership + Empowerment
The three spheres of a DevOps adoption being Culture, Processes and Tools are fundamental to any organisation. The focus on tools often supersedes any work being done at the process levels and almost always, the culture aspect is 'ignored'. Through my years of helping teams adopt agile and eventually pursue DevOps, I've identified certain patterns that address the varying levels of change that are needed by a team pursuing Agile Ways of Work.
In this talk, I'll highlight the most important patterns that are needed along with suggestions to help embed these patterns. We'll utilise Value Stream Mapping, A4 Problem Solving and Team Skill Coaching as patterns for helping a team adopt DevOps thinking. I will be using the DevOps radar (from SAFe) as a guidepost for patterns to get an organisation moving towards the promised land.
Whilst there isn't an 'endpoint' for a DevOps adoption, these patterns reflect milestones on a DevOps transformation roadmap and serve as a possible ‘quick start’.
NOTE: This is not. A SAFe pitch or SAFe sales workshop. The DevOps radar can be used, regardless of the presence of SAFe.
Hacking the workforce of the future
What characteristics does the ideal agile team member possess? How would the needs of the future workforce be addressed if those needs aren’t understood and solved for? My experience of integrating new talent into functioning agile teams has lead me to one, surprising, realisation: Most of the approaches and practices that were used to build organisational teams aren’t working anymore. The tried and tested approaches to team formation and leadership are showing little progress into understanding the mindset of the future workforce. We need radical thinking and action in order to reinvent the way we enable people to communicate, collaborate, and ultimately win as a team. It is up to leaders to mould the culture of organisations to ensure that the future workforce is primed and focused to deliver their best work.
This session focuses on some of the challenges that present themselves when integrating the future workforce into an agile organisation or team. Ultimately, every organisation that is concerned with future proofing their existence must be focused on building teams of motivated individuals that can build the products and services of the future without the constraints we recognise today.
