I have been trying to answer the below Questions for myself as Coach

1.        How can I make the rest of my organization more agile?

2.        How can I motivate the employees to develop themselves?

3.        How can I persuade customers to accept scrum?


With Management 3.0 I could have answer all Questions.

Management 3.0 is a movement of innovation, leadership and management. Management 3.0 is redefining the definition of leadership with management as a group responsibility. It is about working together to find the most efficient way for a business to achieve its goals while maintaining the happiness of workers as a priority.

Management 3.0 is a global management revolution that brings together thousands of project managers, mid-level managers, CEOs and entrepreneurs, developing solutions together, using games to encourage employee feedback and team collaboration.

In this talk, I will introduce you to Management 3.0 concepts.

“Inspect and adapt” is a core principle mastered by mature Agile teams. In context with respect to software architecture, this is a principle that most Agile teams have forgotten to put into practice. In this talk I will introduce “Reflective design” , a simple, but effective practice to overcome this problem and to enable software design agility. After all, if the architecture doesn’t adapt with the business needs, it becomes a bane than a boon.

In the recent past, there has been an increasing interest to understand more of self-organising concept in agile and lean software development teams. Multiple factors have contributed to this increased interest as, software has become ubiquitous pervading all walks of life. The problems that are getting solved through software are also increasing exponentially (problem complexity) and finally we still have not found the “silver bullet" to effectively build software. The much cited report of the Standish Group puts successfully completed project at an abysmal rate of 31 (in their 2015 edition)

Increased adoption of agile and lean development methodologies have also increased the  inquiry into the social aspect of software development, be it for delivering quality software, developer motivation, sustainable returns and more. Socio-economic realities of the 21st century are questioning some basic assumptions at the organisational level in terms of management and organisation theory. Falling birth-rates, increase in disposable income, new engagement model to deal with knowledge-workers are some of the management challenges of the 21st century.  All these factors question - ``whether we can build a lasting organisation? And can we sustain IT organisations of the magnitude of tens-of-thousand associates".

This talk address the following question –

•        How can we build upon the current body of software engineering knowledge, from agile and lean software development philosophy to develop a self-organising institution?

•        What roles do we need at enterprise level to be a self-organising institution?

•        What are the set of values a self-organising institution needs to inculcate?

•        What are the best-practices to be adopted to be a successful self-organising institution?

•        A agile maturity model is proposed for adoption agile philosophy at the enterprise model, which extends the theory proposed by some of the thought leaders, as Phil Crosby, Watts  Humphrey and Jerry Weinberg

Have you heard of agile practices and techniques like 5 levels of Agile Planning, Personas, User Story Map, Story splitting, Vertical slicing, BDD/ATDD/TDD, Agile Test Pyramid, etc..,? Most agile practitioners would have practiced these in isolation or in some combinations. But many struggle to put in them in use end-to-end, right from Product discovery to Product delivery with high quality.

In this hands-on mini workshop, participants get an opportunity to apply all these practices in a meaningful and effective manner on a real-world application example. Depending on their role in agile and interests, they can participate in different groups to practice interested techniques as well as integrate their work with techniques of other groups connecting them end-to-end.


Key takeaways for the audience:

Participants get clarity on various agile practices/techniques used in real-life, their purpose and a deeper understanding on how to use them together in a meaningful manner.

The session will focus on how to mature on the Agile Transformation Journey using the power of Software Engineering Practices. What are these often forgotten practices? How to consistently use them to deliver better products faster? We will also look at how to use them for agile@scale programs.
- Monica Gupta, DevOps Transformation Leader, Shell
Agile teams improve continuously as they work together sprint after sprint. Each agile team will follow its own agile journey into reaching the excellence. Many of you would have seen that some agile teams reach the stage of excellence pretty fast while the rest of the teams will charter a slower course.

As part of building organization agility, the role of agile leadership is to help scale the agile excellence across the organization. There is no definitive formula to scale the agile excellence to the entire organization. This talk will focus on proven methods Intuit has adopted successfully in scaling the excellence. These methods have made a difference in scaling agility at enterprise level and will offer key insights into the scaling excellence at enterprise level. 

Key Takeaways to participants:

  • Why some agile teams achieve excellence faster?
  • How to scale this pattern of achieving excellence across the enterprise?

- Rathinakumar Balasubramanian, Enterprise Agile Leader, Intuit

In a world of accelerating change and growing uncertainty, where the rates of return on assets and on invested capital has been on a continuous decline, Agile has emerged as the answer. Unfortunately today after more than a decade of doing Agile, 80% of the organizations are at or below the ‘still maturing’ level.

Thought Agility - The keystone for true-blue agility, is intended to explore Thought Agility and its key role when transforming to an Agile organization focused at delivering value at scale. This session is a combination of my experiences and my research to better understand the why behind – 80% of the organization are at or below the ‘still maturing’ level and more importantly why 63% (a number moving up at an alarming rate) of organizations cite company philosophy and culture as the impediment for adopting and scaling agility.
