Fifty years since the first agile project, Enterprise Agility remains a hot topic and for some, it is a new delivery approach. Started in the late 1970s as an alternative to Lean Six Sigma, Agile became popular in the second decade of the 21st century when the frameworks used by successful small software development team found their way into projects. Possibly because it was successful on a small scale, or due to business involvement in the development of new software solutions, or just because agile has become something that any organization has to have over the last decade, agile “escaped” software development and is now more and more considered as an option for other Business Teams. "Scaling" Agile beyond software development is a challenge because most popular agile frameworks are conceived by software developers for software developers. In many cases, "scaling" is done by returning to Lean Six Sigma practices - the very approach that Agile tried to improve or even replace. Kaizen is a Lean Six Sigma practice used with great success in manufacturing. In this webinar, the author will share his practical experience with Kaizen in manufacturing as well as software development projects.

An Agile Roadmap to Reduce Resistance and Accelerate Your Team’s Acceptance of Agile Transformation

Have you ever wondered why innovative organizational leaders and high-performing developers, product designers, UX specialists, etc. - who are otherwise excellent at what they do - are slow and hesitant to adopt Agile methodologies? Agile transformation is a hot topic right now, but many organizations rush the implementation process without pausing to assess and address foundational issues. The truth is, new hires or new Agile teams aren’t entirely convinced that Agile methodologies can support their expertise and simplify their day-to-day tasks. They perceive Agile transformation as “just another thing” their company is trying and are reluctant to commit. In this workshop, I’ll present a road map that will help agile practitioners and executives interested in agile transformation identify the root cause of resistance of new Agile teams and new hires. We’ll also look at the challenges Agile evangelists such as Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches, and POs face in implementing these methodologies. The goal is to get all Agile stakeholders aligned with a company’s or a product’s vision and reframe how Agile is seen and used by everyone involved. After this interactive presentation, Agile specialists, executives, and product owners will know exactly how to facilitate Agile transformations with a culture-first approach, supported by coaching, mentorship, and the right kind of accountability (avoiding micromanagement). The result? Teams who truly believe in the potential of Agile methodologies and continue to incrementally incorporate them in their work without resistance, thus accelerating their learning curve.

The Agile Enterprise: Enterprise Agile Metrics Part 5: Benchmarking Projects

As agile delivery reaches its peak, Agile Metrics is still an emergent topic. Most Agile teams with 4-5 years of practice who are ready to progress to a more mature delivery approach and/or attempt larger and more complex products and projects find that the metrics used by the team in their journey to agility are often challenged at the project level and beyond. Similar challenges are faced by the Project Management Office as well as Program, Portfolio, and even Project Managers when they need to choose a delivery approach. Most "traditional" agile metrics are relative metrics - very useful for a small team but challenged when planning and measuring the success of a program or even a project. The main challenge is the validity limited to the team level and the lack of consideration for cost and business process integration. This webinar is based on the author's experience using the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC framework for Process Improvement for software development projects, with a focus on M (Measure); it will address benchmarking projects.

The Agile Enterprise: Enterprise Agile Metrics Part 4: Project Estimation and Planning

As agile delivery reaches its peak, Agile Metrics is still an emergent topic. Most Agile teams with 4-5 years of practice who are ready to progress to a more mature delivery approach and/or attempt larger and more complex products and projects find that the metrics used by the team in their journey to agility are often challenged at the project level and beyond. Some frameworks introduced the concept of releases and release planning but, in most cases, the planning is product-oriented rather than an integral part of a project/portfolio/program plan. One challenge in aligning product-based planning with project-oriented planning is the estimation process and the metrics used. Most "traditional" agile metrics are relative metrics - very useful for a small team but almost useless in planning a project. The main challenge is the validity limited to the team level and the lack of consideration for cost and business process integration. This webinar is based on the author's experience using the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC framework for Process Improvement for software development projects with a focus on M (Measure); it will address project estimation and planning.

This talk will start with a discussion of the two most popular frameworks in Agile today – Scrum and SAFe. These are focused on teams and entire organizations, respectively. However, each misses something very important. After seeing the good Scrum and SAFe provide and summarizing what’s missing, the talk will discuss what Disciplined Agile can offer in general—and what the DA Sr Scrum Master and Value Stream Consultant certifications offer in particular.

The Agile Enterprise: Enterprise Agile Metrics Part 2: Bad Metrics, Good Metrics

Agile Metrics are an emergent topic, especially for Agile teams that are ready to progress to a more mature delivery approach or to attempt larger and more complex products and projects. Recently the Project Management Institute (PMI) launched the Agile Metrics Micro-Credential. And the two most popular 'scaled' Agile frameworks, Disciplined Agile and SAFe, started as Lean delivery approaches, splitting Lean from the Lean Six Sigma science that has been very successful in manufacturing. Most Agile ‘metrics’ are relative metrics - very useful for a small team but challenged at the Enterprise and even at the project level. This webinar is based on the presenter’s experience using the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, & Control) framework for Process Improvement for software development projects, with a focus on M (Measure).
