Business Strategy, Transformation Strategy and SAFe | Eric Willeke

October 6, 2017

Transformation consultant and SAFe Fellow Eric Willeke shares his deep Lean-Agile experience with Agile Amped, focusing on the importance of ensuring organizations are guided by key results and outcomes. He points out that while many organizations are great at getting Agile Release Trains (ARTs) up and running, people doing the work have a hard time articulating how their work maps back to the bigger business strategy. Eric also highlights for us the need to clearly distinguish business strategy and transformation strategy and act accordingly. The topic of Eric's session at SAFe Summit 2017 was "Aligning Business Strategy and Execution with the SAFe Portfolio Level."

SAFe Summit 2017 Round Table Roulette

October 5, 2017

Round table Roulette time again! Our guests this time are Beth Hatter, Sally Elatta and Skip Angel and they have no idea what questions are in store for them! In this episode we answer... If a ScrumMaster were a tree, what kind of tree would they be? What's a favorite aha moment for you or your team? What's an example of a time when Agile didn't apply? How about the worst conference food you've ever had? And so much more!

Our favorite quote from this episode has to be by Sally: "You can use all of Agile sometimes and some of Agile all the time."

Scott Ambler and Mark Lines are the co-creators of Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD), and together they gave an overview of this framework in their “Disciplined Agile Master Class” at Agile2017. The duo enlighten us on the difference between their process-decision framework and scaling frameworks like Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) or Large-Scale Agile (LeSS). And while they’re at it, they open the Pandora’s Box of “What’s better than Agile? And what does it mean to be “beyond Agile?”

Is Enterprise Agile Killing Innovation? | David Bland & Giora Morein

August 23, 2017

Giora Morein, founder and former president of BigVisible and current CST, proposed to us an inflammatory topic: enterprise Agile is killing product innovation and dooming global economies. To round out our discussion panel, we invited founder of Precoil David Bland before diving into a deep and long discussion with two major takeaways:
Agile is good at making organizations more efficient, which may cause companies to efficiently undermine their own business, the people they employ and the larger economy.
Organizations don’t invest enough in enough types of innovations to protect against the uncertainty of the future.

Becoming a Meme & Agile 2.0 | Alistair Cockburn

August 22, 2017

The “enigma wrapped in a puzzle” Alistair Cockburn has an interesting story: signatory of the Agile Manifesto, author of two pivotal books “Writing Effective Use Cases” and “Agile Software Development,” and founder of the Agile software development conference in 2003 along with the more recent “Heart of Agile” conference. This last, “Heart of Agile,” has meme-ified Alistair, in ways oversimplifying who and what he is. But becoming a meme, he says, is crucial in order to have a greater impact. Alistair also shares his thoughts on Agile 2.0, what that means, and provides us with possibly our favorite quote for all of the Agile2017 conference: “Some people say that Agile is dead -- no, it’s just been incorporated into the bloodstream so you can’t see it”.

Human Interactions & How Improv Can Help | Kupe Kupersmith

Extrovert Kupe Kupersmith has a goal to connect with every person in the world. “I’m not the smartest person in the room,” he admits, “but I am a click away from getting any answer that you need.”Kupe uses improvisation to improve human interactions, which technology and tools like social media can both hinder or support. He even demonstrates how you can use improv to, of all things, build a pool on the moon.

Uncovering Agile Coaches | Karen Greaves, Sam Laing & Michael Tardiff

August 18, 2017

How do you coach the mind? “Slowly, carefully,” say our guests Karen Greaves and Sam Laing. The duo are attending Agile2017 from far away South Africa and presenting on “Growing Internal Trainers and Coaches.” Karen shares her experiences becoming – then giving up being – a Certified Agile Trainer because it was at odds with her and Sam’s real objective: growing and uncovering competent Agile coaches and trainers, rather than just handing our certifications to people whose only concern is whether something will be on the exam. As Sam puts it, “Some things that you chase can actually drive the wrong behavior.”

Definition of Product Success | Jeff Patton and George Schlitz

August 17, 2017

Author of O’Reilly’s “User Story Mapping” Jeff Patton joins SolutionsIQ’s George Schlitz to remind us that product success is not defined by how many features it has but by the value that customers get out of it. In other words, if customers aren’t using it, the company should take that feedback and run with it. “It’s incredibly important to be focused on what are we helping companies achieve in their worlds more than how much stuff are we delivering.” Meanwhile, George recognizes that leadership is key to ensuring that the business is achieving the actual goal of bringing value to customers.

“The Tech Industry Needs All Kinds of Minds” - Sallyann Freudenberg on Neurodiversity

August 14, 2017

An Agile coach, trainer and mentor with a PhD in Psychology of Collaborative Software Development, Sallyann Freudenberg is an advocate for neurodiversity. It was after her son was diagnosed with autism that Sallyann recognized the same characteristics in herself – and in the tech industry around us. She says, “Statistically, you have autistics in your organization if you’re a tech company. There’s a huge correlation… These people are in your company right now, you’re just not making the most out of them.” To help companies recognize that neuro-atypical individuals with autism or ADHD may offer intrinsic “superpowers” to offset their challenges, Sally co-founded the Inclusive Collaboration Campaign with Katherine Kirk.

The #NoEstimates Movement with Ryan Ripley

August 11, 2017

Agile coach and “Agile for Humans” podcaster Ryan Ripley drops by to talk about a passion of his: the #NoEstimates movement. The problem is that estimates can turn into commitments, dollars get spent based on misinformation, features end up misaligned with business needs, and all parties end up feeling misled and frustrated. The question then is: do estimates add value or is it unnecessary overhead? Jump into with us to learn more about this movement!

Ron & Chet Have an Agile Revolution in Mind

August 10, 2017

Agile pioneers Ron Jeffries and Chet Hendrickson take us on a roller-coaster ride – in a Delaurian! – through the pervasion of Agile, the evils of meeting big companies where they are, the next evolution of Agile, and treating programmers with human decency, all in the “right side lounge”! Not sure what that means? Neither are we, but we learned a lot and you will, too. Need more incentive? How about these quotes:
- “You’re not doing Agile until your teams are shipping software every two weeks.”
- “I have in mind a revolution.”
- “What is Agile 2.0? It’s teal biomimicry.”
- “We coded live during the keynote to prove that we could do it.”
- “Everything I learned about Agile, I learned through pair programming.”

Author David Marquet to Leaders: Empower Others by Giving Up Control

August 10, 2017

David Marquet’s book “Turn Your Ship Around” is a favorite in the Agile community because it epitomizes team empowerment. David sits down with Agile Amped to discuss his thoughts on leadership, sharing stories of inadvertently becoming the leader aboard the USS Santa Fe, a nuclear submarine. He offers advice to the leaders of Fortune 500 companies, including (surprisingly) letting your waiter order your meal for you the next 10 times you eat at a restaurant. “When you know what it feels like [to give up control], then you know when you’re on the right track.” Learning to lead, he also advocates, is like learning a foreign language: you don’t learn it by going off to on retreats but by doing a little bit everyday.

Lego Serious Play for Strategy | Rob Oddi

July 17, 2017

Rob Oddi Change management expert and consultant, facilitator of Lego Serious Play, a facilitated thinking and problem-solving technique used by diverse organizations like NASA, the United Nations, Google, Fedex, and New Balance. It may seem silly at first but, according to Rob, many organizations agree that "the traditional ways of doing strategy are not working." Research suggests that your hands are connected to up to 90% of the brain cells, so getting your hands involved in strategizing, via Lego Serious Play for example, engages more of your brain power. It also helps players unleash their creativity and their metaphor abilities. It's easy to think of using Legos to represent a tower, but how about a marriage? The conversations built around the resulting 3D models takes on another dimension and enables people to get deeper into a problem, as well as potential solutions.

The one rule of Lego Serious Play? You can never question the builder; you can only question the model.

Supporting Leadership Through Change | Suz O’Donnell

July 5, 2017

Suz O'Donnell, Executive Change Advisor with Thrivatize, has a call to action for leaders in two parts: 1) slow down to speed up and 2) figure out what a change means to you before you bring it to your team. When it comes to lasting change (as in Agile transformation), it isn't enough to simply forward an email. Leaders need to understand how the change will affect them, as well as their careers and families even. It's also important for leaders to customize the change messaging for their reports and teams and really focus on the engagement of their employees and customers. Says Suz, "If you're not engaging your employees, they're not engaging your customers." Furthermore, pushing the change process to go faster may actually impede progress. Slowing down to speed up may mean leaders pursuing professional advisory coaching, which Suz says, "dramatically increases the speed of adoption and implementation."

Importance of the Change Management Standard | CEO Rick Rothermel

June 26, 2017

Rick Rothermel, CEO of LaMarsh Global, articulates for us the importance of the ACMP standard and how it has been evolving and will continue to evolve at the pace of change. Because the ecosystem of business is changing rapidly, clients want things to happen quicker, more efficiently. They also want to develop the competencies themselves rather than hire on outside vendors. These competencies include Agile, leadership, ability to sense and respond, risk-taking, etc., which Rick argues all wrap around the standard. Therefore, it is important to maintain and adhere to the standard for use both by change professionals and the clients they help.

Benefits and Evolution of ACMP | Amy Haworth

June 21, 2017

Amy Haworth is a passionate member of the Association of Change Management Professionals (ACMP) as well as a hiring manager at Citrix who is excited for the new Certified Change Management Professional (CCMP) certification that ACMP now offers. For Amy, this certification helps her validate the capabilities and strengths of her hires. Amy also touches on how different the industry would be without the ACMP as well as some of the important conversations that the change industry need to be having today, namely: focusing on building resilience as a capability and changing our communication and language from top-down change toward a more peer-to-peer collaborative model, which has implications for how you craft your change management plan.

Product Management in Agile Orgs with Melissa Perri

June 20, 2017

Are you building what your customers want, or are you just building? Many companies, old and new alike, fall into “the Build Trap,” building feature after feature without stopping to validate whether it’s what customers truly want and need. Melissa Perri advocates for using product management to help companies get out of that trap, because product managers look at the company goals, set product goals in alignment with the overarching objectives, and ask, “Where do we optimize this? And do these products help meet our users’ needs?”

Virtues of an Agile Coach with Dhaval Panchal

June 15, 2017

What does it mean to be an Agile Coach. It's more than just doing coaching acts (facilitate meetings, provide guidance), but these are purely mechanical. CST at Agile 42, Dhaval says what really matters in Agile coaching is what you do when no one is looking, because "that is what is driving you to become better at your own craft." Dhaval invokes Aristotle and the notion of Virtues to help guide us on our path to becoming better Agile Coaches.

The Visual Story of Change | Drew Mattison

June 14, 2017

Visualizing work is something that Agilists are quite familiar with, but visualizing outcomes, in particular of large-scale change, is what Drew Mattison from XPLANE sits down with Agile Amped to discuss. Drew shares "the visual story of change" -- a powerful tool that can operate like a visual roadmap of not just the end state, but how to get there. Visualization takes the conversation from "Here's what we should do" to "Here's the work that we're doing."

Experiencing Agile with Tricia Broderick

June 12, 2017

Too often Agilists make pronouncements to their clients expecting them to be instantly true: no more multitasking, we are now Agile, you are now empowered. As anyone can attest, it’s one thing to say something like this and really another to make it true. Tricia Broderick, a CST with Agile for All, wants people to experience Agile first hand. Tricia uses hands-on experiences and exercises to drive home meaning, with exercises as simple as writing with your non-dominant hand. That shift is more real than simply saying, “Starting today, you’ll write with your non-dominant hand.” What this does is open people up to engage more, and that’s something that can help Agile become more tangible and concrete for people.

June 9, 2017

That means huge transformations, even for companies as large as her employer, Microsoft, where Jo is in Global Adoption and Change Management. Jo shares her thoughts and experiences on digital transformations, what it implies and how every organization regardless of size has to deal with the challenges and opportunities that accompany it, including big data, culture change and market disruptions.

Projects are Evil with David Hawks

June 8, 2017

David Hawks is the CEO of Agile Velocity based out of Austin, TX, and he is a ardent proponent for abandoning the "project" mentality and moving to a value-driven approach to product development. "Projects are a waterfall container" that typically have a fixed date and scope. And data suggests that most of the products that result out of projects aren't even used in the end. David says that's because projects are developed at the beginning -- when we have the least amount of information -- and designed with what David calls "a mythical certainty."
