Vice President Agile Coach
Member since 3 years
"An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail." and this is what I firmly believe in. This aspect of creativity has always encouraged me to explore different roles in my career. I have always learned depth and breadth of these roles and enjoyed the journey so far.
I am a Infrastructure and Configuration Manager extremely focused on bringing in agility in configuration management processes and practices. Its quite rare to talk about agility in configuration management but with the changing era, the whole perspective to look at configuration practices needs to be changed.
I have managed to marry Agile and DevOps pragmatically. The essence of Agile and DevOps have submerged the operations efficiency.
I am passionate about anything new in Agile world, exploring DevOps. I love connecting with different people from various streams.
Innovation NEVER starts with an ideaSharmila PatwardhanVice President Agile CoachDeutsche Bank
schedule 1 year agoSold Out!
If innovations started with ideas, all of us will be innovators. But it turns out that very few are actually innovators since its not just about having an idea but it is also about implementing that idea.
Its a common myth for everyone to think that Innovation starts with an idea, but does it ???
This session will unfold the innovation process starting from mindset.
The session also has a secret formula for keeping your teams motivated forever.
This draws references from recent research done in all sorts of chemicals that are secreted in your brain like dopamine, cortisol etc. Along with that also connects back to Hindu Vedas and its teachings.
What is the connection of human happiness to motivation and innovation ?
This session will have answers to all these questions.
Forget about Self-organizing Teams, Talk about Self-organizing Organisations: Do they REALLY exist?
"The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams."
Self-organizing teams is one of the principles in Agile, but can we think beyond teams? Something like Self-organizing organizations???
Is it a dream or reality?
If we have to make self-organizing organizations, how we will do it?
- What will be organization structure?
- What will be practices?
- What are the processes?
- How it will be governed?
- Can everyone achieve it?
- Can legacy organizations transform?
This session will be thought provoking to think about how these organizations can look like.
Walk with me the journey of human evolution and how it has carved path for organizational evolution
This session will give real life examples of organizations who have achieved this with more than thousands of people and established not in 2000s but in 1980s. Agile already existed in these organizations, much before we can think of.
This session is a practical guide on how they have achieved it.
The journey of Self-Organizing 0rganizations has already STARTED................but where????
This session is inspired by research done by Frederic Laloux .
Transformation of SRS to Agile Requirements, Journey of Caterpillar to Butterfly.....
While we talk about Agile adoption, many teams implement Scrum for product development but still maintain SRS (System Requirements Specification) as a signed of requirements document from customer. Or it is possible to adopt "Slice the cake" option much later in requirements.
How to maintain these SRS and convert to Agile requirements.
Is it enough just to create a story out of SRS and start this as a product backlog, or does it really require re-looking at the way requirements were captures?
Will it take lot of time and effort to convert this SRS document into Agile requirements?
Is there an effective way to transform the existing SRS to Agile Requirements?
Is product backlog same as Agile requirements?? If not what's missing?
This session will answer all of these questions.
Entrepreneur mindset for Agile teams
While most of the agile teams struggle to have "ownership" from their team members, how can we establish Entrepreneur mindset and how will it really benefit the teams is the real question.
This session is to explain what Entrepreneur mindset is and how it can help Agile teams
Dont resolve the conflicts !!
In the management theory, we have always study about "conflict Management"
We have also learnt the techniques of conflict resolution.
But is it necessary to resolve conflict? In today's world, its important to live with conflicts. In fact inviting conflicts in a team is a way to innovate.
If you don't have conflicts in your team, worry about it.
So rather than worrying about resolving the conflicts, learn to handle them.
Innovation Never Starts with an Idea : Learning from Vedas
Most often people think that when anyone has an idea, they innovate. But why is that you have people around you who have lots of idea but never get them into "existence".
The reason is that it's not with an idea that Innovation starts.
Its easier to discuss challenges to get the ideas from concept to cash. But there finer human behavioral elements when we talk about innovation and this session tries to address fundamentals of how innovations starts.
This session is mainly about the myth that "Innovation starts with an idea" backed up by research of centuries and essence from Hindu Vedas
This session had got a round of applause and appreciation in APGI 2016 conference
