Agile Leadership to Facilitate a Hyper-Productive Team
Date: March 8, 2023

Many leadership buzzwords are floating around, including “Servant Leadership,” “Participative Leadership,” “Command and Control Leadership,” and more.

Agile Architecture for a more Agile Scaled Agile Framework
Date: February 15, 2023

Agile development teams often focus on development at the expense of architecture.  Architecture that is “thrown over the wall” to developers is even seen as anti-agile.  These teams miss the value of architecture to help agile development be more effective – even more agile – by providing an outline that guides development decisions.  When integrated with development, architecture can itself be agile, evolving with the system being built.

During this webinar we’ll explore agile architecture and the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe).  We discuss SAFe because of its popularity as an enterprise-scale agile framework, but the agile architecture methods discussed can benefit any agile development practice.

Product Thinking: Moving from a Project Mindset to a Product Mindset
Date: June 23, 2022

Our Product Thinking program is a great enhancement to Product Owner and Scrum Master training, as well as a unique offering for Product Managers. Whereas most workshops focus on the team level, the Product Thinking training teaches us how to define value, and how to engage with customers before we reach the team level, thus moving from a project mindset to a product mindset. It addresses challenges such as building the right product at the right time, and helps these job roles to define a strategic roadmap to address which challenges are most pressing, and how to align these with the business objectives. Most scaling frameworks recommend a move to product thinking/design thinking in order to engage more efficiently with customers, to determine challenges and opportunities, and design appropriate solutions.

Please join us to learn about our unique approach to Product Thinking that merges Design Thinking, Agile UI\UX, and the Mobius Loop Product Delivery framework. 

Leveraging Architecture for more predictable – and more Agile – development
Date: January 21, 2022

Agile and Architecture may be seen as having conflicting objectives – the former is adaptable and open to change, the latter is rigid and constrains solutions. When Architecture and Agile are treated as separate independent phases, it’s often true, but leveraging both together changes the game. At the intersection of the two, having the right practices can drive more predictable and *more* agile development.

This webinar explores that intersection between Architecture and Agile. We identify those key aspects of Architecture and key aspects of Agile that are essential to success, and start to break down some of the myths that can stand between architects and agilists. By the end of the webinar, you’ll have an appreciation for the potential for Agile and Architecture to support and compliment each other rather than being in conflict.

What is Lean Coffee?

Design Thinking in an Agile World
Date: April 23, 2021

Design Thinking and Agile are two sides of the same coin. Design Thinking when implemented correctly, can help an organization to identify which products or new features add the most value to their customers. For example, in the world of banking, Design Thinking can be utilized to determine which new features should be added to an online banking platform to attract and retain customers. In the restaurant sector we might use Design Thinking to determine which new services will help retain customers that have families.

Design Thinking is for Product Owners, Stakeholders, and teams to help determine what to build or what feature to offer next. Agile is the process that is used to implement these ideas. Both Design Thinking and Agile uses an iterative approach to generate feedback loops. We can then use these feedback loops to validate that we’re building the correct product, and to reduce our Return on Investment.

In this course will be using a real-life project to walk thru the Design Thinking process to illustrate the steps, and demonstrate the results. We’ll then explore how to use these results within your current Agile teams.

Remote Team Building that reinforces Agile
Date: March 26, 2021

We are all getting creative on ways of building teams in a remote work place. In this webinar we’ll be covering three topics:
• 5 tips to keep your team engaged on a daily basis
• Review of two of our new 1/2 day remote team building workshops
• Open discussion on sharing your personal favorite tips and tricks for engaging with remote teams

Design Thinking related to Agile and Product Management
Date: August 27, 2020

Design Thinking and Agile are two sides of the same coin. Design Thinking when implemented correctly can help an organization to identify which products add the most value to their customers. For example, in the world of banking Design Thinking can be utilized to determine which new features should be added to an online banking platform to attract and retain customers. In the restaurant sector we might use Design Thinking to determine which new services will help retain customers that have families.

If Design Thinking is a way to determine what to build or offer next, then Agile is the process that we then use to implement these ideas. Agile uses an iterative approach to building the product and services in such a way that we can provide the customer with something incrementally to generate feedback loops. We can then use these feedback loops to validate that we’re building the correct product, and to reduce our ROI.

Agile Leadership in the Crisis
Date: July 22, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic crisis has affected businesses across the world. As leaders, we have worked hard over the past months to execute immediate actions like a pivot to Virtual Everything, and Working From Home (WFH). Even as things have stabilized, we all know that we’re a long way away from the next normal. How can we best use this unprecedented time to prepare our organizations for the future? Agile leaders are investing in three areas:

1. Lean Mindset. Developing a Lean mindset from executives to individual contributors helps drive consistency of purpose, and alignment of action end-to-end across the enterprise.
2. Agile and DevOps Engineering Excellence. Advanced agile engineering practices like Test Driven Development (TDD) help leverage investment in Agile teams, and perfectly complement DevOps CICD platforms. Together, they greatly enhance speed to market.
3. Lean Portfolio Management. Ensuring that we work on building the right things for our customers greatly reduces wasted effort and cost. Lean Portfolio Management also helps us build discipline around Work in Process (WIP) limits, and helps us focus on chunking and prioritizing the right product and services to dramatically improve flow and agility.

Join Sanjiv (CEO) and Roland (SVP, Business Agility) to learn how agile leaders are using the pandemic time to retool their organization for the hypercompetitive future, via the three elements above.

Future of Agile coaching
Date: March 27, 2019

Agile Coaching is a relatively new profession in the world of software. In the very beginning of agile, there was no concept of the “Agile Coach” as a role. There were two fan favorites on the scene in the beginning. There was Extreme Programming (XP), with the “Coach” role as the facilitator of the process, Scrum with the “Scrum Master as the facilitator.As people started seeing the benefits of agile, companies wanted to change. Shortly after the signing of the Agile Manifesto, Agile Coaches started to emerge. Companies needed help transitioning to Scrum and/or XP.

At first, Agile Coaches were mostly agile teachers, teaching people the “practices” of the frameworks primarily at the team level. Quickly, as organizations wanted to expand their adoption of agile, the profession grew to be much more than that of a teacher. Now, with scaling frameworks becoming ubiquitous, there is yet even more that is required of the agile coach.

During this Webinar, we will go review where Agile Coaching started, where it is now, and where it should go.

Challenge and Change, the Foundation of Agile
Date: May 16, 2018

Many companies are trying to make the transition to agile, and in particular Scrum. Transitioning to agile requires challenging the current status quo and strategically inspecting & adapting to find better ways of developing software.

In this webinar, we will explore:
• What agile is and what it is not.
• The importance of clearly defining the goals of the agile transition.
• How the current culture, processes and even the current architecture can greatly impact where you start.
• A set of anti-patterns to look for during your agile transition and what to do about them.
This webinar will provide some ideas that can give your agile transition a better chance for success.
