At the beginning of a project, teams will usually spend a lot of time on infrastructure, making it hard to demo anything to the business. There is a constant battle between engineers and product owners on what needs to be built first.

But you do not need to compromise. Infrastructure can be generated, using an application generator called JHipster that allows scrum teams to focus primarily on delivering business value right at the start of a project.

In a live demo, we will show you how to first generate a new Angular/Spring Boot application with just a few keystrokes. Then we can quickly deploy that application to the cloud. Lastly, we will create a Jenkins pipeline for automated CI/CD and deploy some changes quickly. The audience members will be also able to interact with the application using their mobile device.

    Despite thinking that organizations are slow to innovate, innovation actually abounds at many companies. Kodak, DEC, and Xerox did not fail due to lack of new, cutting-edge innovation; they failed because their organizations were tuned to their traditional markets, and a failure to change their business models and organizations led to their eventual disruption.

    The key to achieving business agility lies in leadership that transforms organizations. Transformational leaders succeed by changing the system, leading with purpose, and steering from the edges. They own their responsibility and boldly lead their organizations into the future. As leaders, we can accelerate this evolution by enabling true self-management and team-based governance.

    Join Bob and Sanjiv to learn how leaders can transform organizations with a flatter organization structure, work anywhere flexibility, participatory profit sharing, and delegated hiring and firing. Explore the agile leadership journey needed for true business agility.

    Sanjiv Augustine / Audrey Scheere - 7 Transformational Sparks for Business Agility

    45 Mins

    Agile transformations typically fail to deliver true business agility because organizational power structures, norms, and culture remain locked into legacy models that oppose Agile. Similarly, companies fail because their organizations remain tuned to their traditional markets, even as disruption creates new dangers and innovation new opportunities. The failure to change hidebound bureaucracy and rigid organization structures leads to eventual disruption, and often dissolution.

    Agile methods can serve as a foundation for organizational “sparks” that are adaptable and resilient in the face of disruption and relentless change. Those looking to leverage investment in Agile as a business differentiator must heed Conway’s Rule, and adapt organizational elements to support and enable true business agility. Join Sanjiv and Audrey to explore essential organizational sparks for business agility, including Lean Discovery, Agile PMO, Agile Budgeting, Dynamic Strategy, and Portfolio Kanban.
