Stuck in an Agile rut? Do you feel that your organization has plateaued in its Agile journey? Wondering how you can deliver customer value even faster in the future? We believe that organizational and leadership changes can achieve just that. Come and discover as we share our in-the-trenches experiments and the resulting mechanisms and tools for empowering your teams.
Join your fellow conference participants in release planning and designing a model home for a customer. This session will take the concept of self-organizing teams to a different level. Such teams don’t just decide team assignments, but take many other decisions that help keep organizations moving forward at the speed and quality levels that the organization is built for. At the same time, all the teams are in alignment guided by a set of decision filters or guard-rails that keep on changing or expanding as the teams build their decision-making muscles. Explore how Agile teams engage effectively during different iterations of planning to deliver customer value – while keeping focus on learning and planning, not the plan. Find out how teams are able to make data-driven trade-offs to make hard decisions that are just-in-time and just-enough.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Tactics to move from scrum basics to "Being Agile"
  • A useful model for release planning, useful for dispersed teams
  • Data-driven models that enable teams to make objective decisions in real-time as they encounter changes
