Tearing down the walls:Leveraging Lean and Agile methods to create your own
Agile and Lean based practices don't have an inherent value in themselves.The value lies in leveraging their principles and applying practices to the context of the problems you are muddling with.
Is one framework better than other? Is Scrum better than Kanban? Does XP has all the solutions?Is SAFe safe? Lean or Agile? Will this work here?
In this talk I will try to answer some of these questions by leveraging my experience with some of the biggest Agile transformations across multiple organizations, cultures and regions.
I will also talk about some of the techniques that are simple yet powerful way of reflecting where you are now and may help you choose a direction of where you want to go rather than tell you the destination.

F2 (F Square) = Flow * Framework -> In context of Scrum and Kanban
As agile methodologies, Kanban and Scrum has their own space of executions. Kanban can be best described as a methodology which depicts “Flow” of work while Scrum is a framework which creates a base to do Product Development.

Many efforts has been done to combine the Flow & Framework to achieve the best possible combination and ScrumBan turns out to be one of the most widely used experiment.  

Through Scrumban as a practice is getting some attraction, we need to also explore how the combination of Flow and Framework can work together and what could be its limitations?

Different to systems in production, knowledge work lacks the opportunity to show its actual status as inventory, interim or final results.

Continuous Improvement with Toyota Kata
While most agile teams have been doing retrospectives, their effectiveness is highly questionable. They have not helped teams significantly improve their delivery capability on a sustained basis. Further, in most cases, these are project centric and don’t pollinate across the organization. Toyota’s success has been amazingly long lasting and self-sustaining. In this talk, we try and understand what are some of the things that they do that we can quite easily adopt in our project team and across the organization.

Upstream Kanban: Visualizing your Team's Priorities

There is a lot of attention given to Lean/ Agile product development teams around the work done and the (Lean/ Agile) processes adopted in by the Dev team once a set of features (backlog items) have been identified for a set of sprints (scrums) and/ or Releases. 

However, how do those features get to the team, nicely bunched up in Releases and Sprints? There is a lot of upstream effort by Product Management that goes in 'herding the cats' - defining and maintaining the Product Roadmap with input from myriad and often conflicting sources, abstracting features and requirements at the right level, getting stakeholders to agree on their priority, and then decomposing them so that the Dev teams are continually churning out quality code and product features in a 'just-in-time' manner. The work that the Product Owner or the Product Manager  does is at a different cadence than the Dev team.  Most organizations and teams have not yet understood the criticality of managing this upstream work well, nor the effort that needs to be put in so that the Dev team is continually supplied with User Stories at the right time and stakeholders are satisfied the right work is being done at the right time.

This talk focuses on this challenge, describes what we have done as a small product company, where managing the Product Roadmap and successful delivery of releases is critical; and how the same principles can be applied to other scenarios.

KanbanESP: Building an Information Flow
Enterprise Services Planning (ESP) is a way to improve communication and collaboration enterprise-wide. It will bring alignment between an organization's long term strategic plans, ever-changing market shifts, and the reality of delivery capability.

Within the ESP program, information flow is achieved with a set of feedback loops: meetings we call the 7 Kanban Cadences. Information flows in and action flows out in a deliberate sequence considering lead time, predictability, and quality. In this session, learn about each of these feedback loops and how they all work together across the enterprise.

Synchronization and Cadence at the heart of scaling
When the agile initiatives scale, Synchronization and Cadence are needed to optimize the program velocity.

The key for this optimization is synchronization between different teams in terms of joint planning, work products, backlogs and design. Then all the constituent teams need to work on the same cadence so that the integration and planning can happen on the same timetable based rhythm.

The session would be elaborate on this concept - and how it holds the key immaterial of which scaled agile concept is being used.

This session would also address related items like optimizing program velocity versus team velocity, structuring of the teams and dedicated capacity at program level.

Kanban beyond technology - effective implementation in HR space
Human Resources is an important function of an organization today. Like before, it's no more all about recruitment and people management but a complete paradigm shift on People Development. Today's organizations are more knowledge workers and hence they are no more looking out for jobs but are aspiring for long lasting and rewarding careers.

However, HR practices that are followed today are many a times still primitive and not updated to match with the aspirations of today's players. A shift in mind set and practices are very much the need of the day if an organization truly want to develop its people and create a knowledge organization.

Kanban is an extremely effective way to bring in Resilience into the HR practices. This talk will walk through the case study of how HR has been implemented successfully in my client organization to keep up with both the speed and the development aspects of the organization.

STATIK - Good Practice for Introducing Kanban Systems
The Kanban approach is quite different from many others in a sense, that it does not come with big prescriptions, what all should to be done or followed. It rather it assumes a wise approach for evolution along various options for growing a fitter business.

However, even initiating an evolutionary approach to change needs a set of focused actions to be taken care of, in order to increase the probability for making it stick and creating impact. In this session you will learn about the bigger picture of STATIK - the Systems Thinking Approach To Introducing Kanban, helping you not only to start great Kanban initiatives, spreading it across different services, but also to revisit existing ones, finding good ways for further improvement.

Examples of Kanban Core practices used during Large scale transformations
The speaker is going to share some actual examples of Kanban practices that his teams used while leading large scale transformations. These examples will highlight how Kanban core practices can also be used effectively for the work needed to define software development processes. While driving with extreme urgency, for large scale changes with simplicity and customer focus as the foundation, speaker and his teams have leveraged various aspects from Kanban core practices – visualization of work and work progress at multiple levels; limiting WIP as well as eliminating non-value adding work, defining Minimal viable product; smoother flows; processes and tools simplification, communication and support; in-time feedback mechanisms; continuous experimentation, etc.

In this interactive session, the audience is expected to share their own perspectives and experiences. The audience will not only learn from these examples but will also get ideas to adapt them for their own situations.
