Craig Larman - Co-creator of LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum)
LeSS Scaling & Larman’s Laws of Organizational Behavior
«First, Let’s Fire all the Managers» is the title of a recent Harvard Business Review article. How does that title make you feel? Thrilled? Scared?
In your response to this and other management assumptions lie key dynamics of change. Based on decades of organizational design consulting, with a focus on large-scale development, best-selling author Craig Larman makes the connection between those responses and his insights from changing big and multisite product development groups to LeSS (Large Scale Scrum). LeSS is simple, but it challenges the assumptions of traditional management systems that are «baked in» to the design of large groups. Larman’s Laws of Organizational Behavior point to the problems and key solution for transforming large-scale development groups.

Gil Zilberfeld - Everyday Unit Testing
The New Agile

We know that agile methodologies work at the team level, and there is now even an effort to scale into whole organizations.

There is a clear reason behind this: we found ways to improve performance, by analyzing situations better, and making better decision. Every organization wants to apply this in every level. Like in the late 90s, new ideas are coming out that challenge the way we think, and this time they don’t just answer development. Ideas like Beyond Budgeting, Lean Startup, Cynefin, Real Options, Feature Injection, SAFe, Design Thinking, #NoEstimates, Cost of Delay and others are spreading out, and while we know not all will last, you never know which might fit your situation.

In this session, I’ll give a summary of what’s hot around the agile world, with some criticism and application in the real world. 14 years after the original manifesto, organizations start to experiment again. I always wished I was there when the first conversations took place. I encourage you to join in on current conversations. Let’s start.

A Balanced Metrics Set for Software Business
Location #1

Choosing a balanced metrics set to measure capability of a software development business is untrivial, as many definitions of a ‘good’ metric are contradictory.
In this presentation I quickly look at metrics in general and the typical failings in the way they are implemented at organizations. Then I explore different interpretations for «useful» in «useful metrics».
Last I present the multi-level metrics approach selected at a Finnish global software product company in 2012 to gain awareness of software development performance and its business impact.

Sustainable Improvement through Agile Retrospectives
Location #1

Buy-in from professionals is crucial to make changes succeed in organizations. Many improvement programs fail when professionals are insufficiently involved during the changes. Agile retrospectives can be used to do continuous and lasting improvements in organizations. They are owned and done by the teams, who decide when, where, and how they will change their way of working. This is why agile retrospectives are a sustainable approach for improvement.

We need to uncover better ways to do improvements in organizations. Use an iterative approach for change with short-cycled improvements and frequent feedback to learn how to improve and get better in doing it. Agile retrospectives are a better way to do continuous improvement.  Teams decide when, where, and how they will change their way of working, in stead of having the changes dictated by managers or quality/process people. Retrospectives give power to the teams and help them to become self-organized.

My first book  Getting Value out of Agile Retrospectives – A Toolbox of Retrospective Exercises contains many exercises that you can use to do retrospectives, supported with the “what” and “why” of retrospectives, the business value and benefits that they can bring you, and advice for introducing and improving retrospectives.

Growing Your Discovery Mindset
Location #1

The Agile practices offer us an empirical approach, rather than an predictive one, to develop a product. This, in turn, asks that we learn how to face uncertainty and leverage it, in a learning process that asks for the courage to make mistakes — wisely. Attend this session to learn about Discovery, Execution and Optimization of a business model, about where and how Agile and Lean fit in there, and about the kind of mindset that will let you get the most out of them.

Tom Gilb - The Agile "Grandfather"
Agility is the TOOL, not the Master
Location #1

Tom Gilb’s Ten Key Agile Principles to deliver stakeholder value, avoid bureaucracy and give creative freedom

Simplicity

1. Focus on real stakeholder values

Communication

2. Communicate stakeholder values quantitatively

3. Estimate expected results and costs for weekly steps

Feedback

4. Generate results, weekly, for stakeholders, in their environment

5. Measure all critical aspects of the improved results cycle.

6. Analyse deviation from your initial estimates

Courage

7. Change plans to reflect weekly learning

8.. Immediately implement valued stakeholder needs, next week

Don’t wait, don’t study (analysis paralysis), don’t make excuses.

Just Do It!

9. Tell stakeholders exactly what you will deliver next week

10. Use any design, strategy, method, process that works quantitatively well — to get your results

Be a systems engineer, not a just programmer (a ‘Softcrafter’). Do not be limited by your craft background, in serving your paymasters

Change it or leave it
Location #2

One of the biggest obstacles to successful products, teams and relationships is a lack of Will to Change.

Being a consultant in software development I always faced the reality of existing businesses, personalities with their own special way seeing the world — whether they are on a customer side or joining my team. I’m not saying that way is bad but what happens when you know a better way.

We had to almost kill old business model and rebuild it from scratch in order to find a better way. Letting people go, firing customers is hard but might not always be a bad idea. It is not just about big changes — it is about continuous changes

  • who sets rules: business/customer you deal with or you?
  • “it works — don’t touch it” — really?
  • contract obligations — stairs to hell or a driver to change
  • persuading, motivating and just saying NO

and more

I won’t give you exact answers but we faced those questions with team and made our so far successful way through

Servant Leadership
Location #1

Do you know what train wreck from 1841 has to do with your organization’s structure? Or according to Frederick Taylor, what is the duty of management? Or why didn’t Henry Ford create teams on the Model T production line? If not, then maybe it’s time to have a short history lesson on management and see how ideas from the 19th and 20th centuries have infiltrated our organizations.

In IT, we significantly change technologies every decade. At the same time, we’re still employing management practices that are hundreds of years old. It’s about time to abandon this legacy. However, this is easier said than done. Old hardware and software can be easily thrown away, but “fleshware” cannot be replaced so quickly. It takes time to learn new habits, and old rules are hard to forget. Therefore don’t expect a simple cure-all solution. Fortunately, with three leadership principles, a lot of real-life examples and a bit of fun in this presentation, I will help you to understand the concept of servant leadership, and how you can support your team so they deliver what your customers really need.

Learn how to build robust organizational structure for Agile at scale
Location #2

Are you going to implement Agile/Lean methodologies in your organization, but you don’t have a clue where to start? Does it make sense to begin with Agile training? Or, it would be better to start with implementation of application lifecycle management tools (ALM), or, it would be enough just to hire right people with agile expertise?

Based on our experience, with more than 100 clients, we clearly see that in most of the cases real agile transformation is kicking off from organizational structure change. This is exactly what we would like to share with you.

We will talk about typical issues in organization structure that we have seen when helping our clients to transform. We will also outline what potential problems might cause those issues. Furthermore, we will share successful patterns of building robust organizational structures for different types of the companies: starting from small and scaling it up to enterprise (100+ employees).

As an outcome, participants will get an overview on how to build robust organizational structure as a foundation for successful Agile/Lean implementation.

Using simulational modelling for accelerating large lean transformation
Location #3

Large lean transormation is hard. Can we use simulation models to make it easier?

Principles of lean transformation are the same, either it is a small organization or a large enterprise: pull over push, focusing on value, people empowerment, etc. Still the larger the harder.  There are some obvious reasons such as a higher cost of a mistake, a lot of efforts for making changes, corporate policies issues.

There’s also another important problem: everything depends on everything! There are a lot of dependencies, and even changing organization bit by bit, focusing on one department still affects all others. Will the change finally produce what it is supposed to?

As change agents we defintely want to forecast  what our improvements would lead to.  Most of the time we use simple mental models. Can we make one step futher and come up with a digital one?

In this topic we will discuss a case of using simulational modelling for organization transformation, talk about their limits of applicability, validation methods etc.

Refactoring Legacy Code
Location #3

Every programmer has to face legacy code day after day. It might be ugly, it might look scary, it can make a grown man cry. Some will throw it away and try rewriting everything from scratch. Most of them will fail.
Refactoring legacy code is a much better idea. It is not so scary when you take it in very small bites, introduce small changes, add unit tests. When code is refactored and unit tests are added, changes to functinality can be introduced.
We will take an open source c# project and will refactor it showing step-by-step examples of the techniques.
This session is full of tips and tricks you can start applying immediately. Although the code is in C#, the same principles can be applied in any language

Глубинные исследования — Как найти реальную боль клиента и предложить конкуретноспособное решение
Location #3

Все много всего слышали про Customer Development и Lean StartUp. Все знают о том, что любая продуктовая идея гипотеза. Но что, если гипотез нет, рынок конкурентный или знания рынка недостаточны, чтобы выйти с новым продуктом. Как найти новую нишу?

Для этого нужно достичь нужной эмпатии с рынком-клиентами-людьми.

На этом воркшопе, мы с вами попробуем добиться максимальной эмпатии: разобрать и увидеть специфичные проблемы на рынке, поймем на чем и как стоит сфокусироваться начиная делать новый продукт или улучшая существующий.

Let’s get started on this together!
Location #4
In times where time to market is crucial, one cannot invest huge chunks of time in requirements gathering while blocking the progress on the project for several months. Using a simple, but effective process based on Agile and Lean principles, at EPAM we have successfully shortened the initial requirements gathering phase for some of our projects while achieving high alignment with all stakeholders and validating the most important aspects of the solution architecture.
Come to this workshop to experience the process and learn from that experience to apply it for your own projects.

Мастер-класс: планируем agile трансформацию — только для экспертов
Location #4

Независимо от масштабов применения — будь то освоение scrum на уровне команды, реорганизация продуктовой компании или внедрение гибкости в корпоративных масштабах — грамотное управление изменениями является залогом устойчивой адаптации таких изменений. Любой, кто хочет попробовать внедрить новую практику или метод в своей компании или команде вынужден действовать на свое усмотрение, если у него еще нет успешного опыта.
Предлагаем вашему вниманию возможность попрактиковать основные инструменты дизайна изменений. Данный практический семинар составлен таким образом, что участники пройдут по реальному кейсу и им будет поставлена задача проанализировать ситуацию, понять ожидания от изменений и запланировать гибкую программу по реализации требуемых изменений.

Семинар будет сопровождаться демонстрацией промежуточных результатов, комментариями консультантов и примерами из реальных проектов по внедрению lean и agile.

Участники семинара:

  • — Ознакомятся с основными инструментами управления изменениями

  • — Проработают инструменты над реальным кейсом в команде под руководством наших старших консультантов

  • — Узнают о наиболее частых проблемах, связанных с внедрением изменений и познакомятся со способами их устранения или смягчения

  • — Приобретут уверенность в своей способности возглавить изменения в своей организации или команде.


Данный семинар рассчитан на максимум 30 участников. Если вы не смогли попасть в эту группу или пришли после начала семинара, мы все же предлагаем вам присоединиться в качестве наблюдателей.


Все присутствующие получат от нас материалы семинара в электронном виде!

Evolve & Disrupt
The conditions found in many organizations can be very hostile to people who try to introduce change. Yet, improvement without change is impossible.
And while these companies glorify and reward the unsustainable acts of very visible firefighters and autocratic leaders, they invariably expose themselves to disruption in the marketplace.
In this cartoon-style and action-packed session, Claudio will illustrate vivid examples of how Popcorn Flow (a new approach to continuous Lean & Agile evolution through rapid experimentation) and Jobs-To-Be-Done (a theory and emerging strategies to extract customer insights) can dramatically accelerate the rate of change and create solid opportunities for breakthrough innovation.

The 5 Pitfalls that Make the Difference between Failure and Success in Organization-Wide Implementation of Agile
Location #1

Many companies decide to “go agile”, but often do not recognize the implications of this decision. Indeed, Scrum or Kanban look easy on the surface, but implementing agile requires significant changes in the way we work in teams, it has impact on the way the Management is involved in projects, and it puts new demands on the organization as a whole.

In this session, Annette Vendelbo will talk about the pitfalls in agile implementation that you should always avoid, and give you tips to how you can ensure the optimal benefit of your agile journey.

Why We Fail to Change
Location #1

Improvement initiatives are like teenage sex: everyone talks about it, nobody really knows how to do it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it.

For decades most of improvement programs fail. Interestingly enough, with the rise of Agile and Lean the success rates of change initiatives don’t get better. Why so?

Every now and then we focus on processes and methods. We exploit success stories from other organizations just to find ourselves failing again. Should it be a surprise given how little attention we pay to our specific context? Should it be a surprise given bias toward methods and tools at cost of mindset?

Let me discuss some of methods we use to drive improvements. My goal is to show you that most of the time you shouldn’t even bother to use them. The missing bit is almost never a tool or a method. This is going to be sort of myth busting. We need that to change our focus to the important bits: right mindset and understanding the context.

Behaviour-Driven Development: A Bit of An Experiment

BDD is a practice in which we talk through examples and scenarios, and the outcomes that we want to achieve from each.

Whenever we do something new, though, we often discover that the outcomes we thought we wanted aren’t what actually works, or that contexts exist that we couldn’t possibly have predicted. When faced with uncertainty, how can we still have discipline in defining our scenarios and their outcomes, while leaving enough room to change direction when we make discoveries? How can any kind of analysis help us when every question leads to another question, and it’s impossible to know everything up front?

In this talk, we look at why uncertainty is inevitable, why testing pre-determined outcomes might be an anti-pattern in uncertain situations, and how to use scenarios and examples to create rigorous safe-to-fail experiments instead.

CLOSING KEYNOTE: The Agile and Lean mindset

In the agile community we focus a lot on techniques and methodologies that help us to do agile. You just spend two days learning a lot of them.
Yet we all know people who do Agile by the book and who are not Agile.

Yes, people can do Agile and still not be agile.
A lot of people struggle with what does it mean to truly BE agile?

In this closing keynote, Yves hopes to inspire you with his ideas for an agile and lean mindset. As the future of agile is to the youth, Yves brings his 12 year old son, who will jump to the stage when he thinks, his father needs to be pushed some more…

Scrum в госсекторе: обмани меня, если сможешь
Location #2

Обычно, тема внедрения гибких методов разработки в ИТ-проектах украинского государственного сектора вызывает у новичков желание преодолеть неизведанное, а у тех, кто имеет опыт работы с госсектором — удивление, граничащее с иронией.

Действительно, бюрократический механизм работы достаточно трудно совместить с гибкими методами разработки программного обеспечения. Разве что «натянуть» :). Однако, опыт показывает, что идеологию гибкой разработки можно успешно использовать в борьбе с бюрократической машиной. Более того, именно благодаря особенностям процессов в государственной организации внедрения scrum может происходить быстрее и легче, чем в других секторах. Верится с трудом? Тогда приходите на доклад и я буду вас переубеждать!

RAPID GROWTH HACK: How Agile Principles, Practices, and Mindset help Ukrainian NGOs Develop
Location #2

Когда год-два назад нам задавали вопросы: знаете ли вы примеры использования Agile/Scrum вне сферы IT, мы приводили в пример истории строительных бригад и PR-агенства..
2014-й год изменил нашу страну до неузнаваемости, изменил каждого из нас. Но если вы по-настоящему Agile, то следуете ценностям и принципам в любой ситуации, даже в ситуации войны.

В процессе интеграции, казалось бы, несовместимых вещей, я открыла, что у нас в арсенале есть мощный набор инструментов для разворачивания деятельности организации нового типа — буквально в считанные дни.

Так родилась одна из крупнейших украинских NGO времени войны — Восток-SOS, в создании которой с мая по сентябрь я принимала непосредственное участие.

За следующие полгода интеграции “мирного” и “военного” опыта, были:

  • обучены волонтеры других инициатив практикам Agile и Lean

  • проведены стратегические сессии организационного развития

  • выполнен коучинг команд общественных организаций

Рефлексия преследовала меня на протяжении всех 8 месяцев: “Какова моя роль?” и “Что лучшего я могу делать для страны”?. В начале 2015-го, наконец, начала понимать свой внутренний ответ.
В феврале 2015 этот ответ стал кристаллизироваться в праобраз программы организационного развития для NGO “Rapid Growth Hack”. Она должна состоит из двух частей:

  • NGO 2:0 — масштабирование ресурсов и возможностей

  • NGO 3:0 — рост продуктивности процессов и команд

Программа нова и сыра, требует осмысления и развития. Но в ситуации динамической комплексности проблем в моей стане, я не могу представить — какой фундамент подходил бы здесь лучше, чем принципы Agile, Lean и .. предпринимательское мышление.

У нас уже есть первые результаты, опыт для ретроспективы и “вакансии” для нового витка.

На докладе я поделюсь тем, как принципы Agile и Lean StartUp помогают развиваться общественной сфере в Украине, а так же какое развитие принесла война в стране мне, как Agile-коучу.

System Thinking – The Beer Game (3 hours workshop)
Location #3

Have you ever dreamed about working in the beer industry? About delighting your customers with every single bottle you deliver? If so, this workshop is meant for you. Join us to try yours skills in managing a beer delivery system of your favorite brand. Up to five teams will compete against each other to meet customers’ demands and maximize company profits. This fun and engaging role-play supply chain simulation was originally invented in the 1960s by Jay Forrester at MIT, and made popular by Peter Senge in “The Fifth Discipline” book.

After the game we will talk about what beer has to do with software (and it has a lot). We will see how the system design impact behavior of people inside that system. This will allow us to discuss challenges of managing complex system (just like beer delivery or software development), and how to address them. Finally, we will learn, how we can analyze our systems using System Thinking, and gain new perspective on solving problems we encounter.

Target audience: This workshop is intended for people responsible or interested in understanding and managing complex system, such as software development, especially executives, directors, leaders, managers, ScrumMasters, Product Owners, quality engineers and project managers.

Creating children book in 45 minutes thanks to Scrum
Location #3

Creating a book is not a simple project however applying Agile principles to the process might make it much more easier to manage and give you better results. During the workshop we will create a children’s book in teams by using Scrum techniques. You will stay awake as workshop requires your active participation, gives ability to have fun and engage your creativity.
I have done interactive workshops on conferences, Agile events, at company offices and business schools and these are always perceived very well, as there are always some people who prefer «learning by doing».
