    Diana Kirkova - Communication sometimes is not what you first hear - a guide to agile communication

    90 Mins
    Hands on Session

    It is really hard to communicate in a good way, but we all think “we” do it, it’s just the other people who struggle. Effective communication is a fundamental requirement for agile modeling. There are various modes of communication that people may choose to apply when working together. What are the Communication Technologies? When is communication most effective? How to set up good, solid communication mechanisms that will allow teams to grow their communication, and ultimately their collaboration skills. We will have some insights on all those questions and a taste of games with a focus on experiential learning.

    vinaya muralidharan / Carol Mathrani - Transformations, Heliotropism, Ubuntu and such

    20 Mins

    Change is tough! Big changes are tougher!

    As people initiating change as well as people experiencing change, there are some attitudes and stances that will help us ride the wave of change rather than falter and drown.

    Some of these, amongst others, that have helped us immensely in our experiences are The Principle of Heliotropism and Ubuntu!

    We would love to share our experiences so other can learn from our failures, successes and more.

    Expect a lot of anecdotes!

    In Agile ways of delivering software products we often hear people talking about adopting 'Best' practices to improve their delivery.

    If you try looking for BEST practices definition in Wiki you get -

    A best practice is a method or technique that has been generally accepted as superior to any alternatives because it produces results that are superior to those achieved by other means or because it has become a standard way of doing things, e.g., a standard way of complying with legal or ethical requirements.

    In my view, Best Practice must surely be able to demonstrate a superior outcome achieved because of the way the thing has been done.

    Do we have BEST practices in Agile ?

    As per Cynefin framework - Agile practices fall under 'Complex' domain category.

    In the complex domain, we find the relationship between cause and effect can only be perceived in retrospect and the results are unpredictable. Here, we need to create safe to fail experiments and not attempt to create fail safe design. We cannot solve complex problems with best or good practices alone.

    In this domain we get emergent order and practice that is often unique.

    Emergent practice, behavior or order results and the approach is to:-


    Probe - Experimental input

    Sense - Failures or successes

    Respond - Decide what to do

    When BEST practices can be applied for Simple problems why should we do the same for problems where there is a demand of exploration/innovation ideas to arrive at a solution - that is where majority of our Projects/Product implementations fall under :)

    Just because “Company A” had success with a particular initiative doesn’t mean that “Company B” can plug-and-play the same process and predict the same result.

    • BEST practices forces one to stay in 'Fixed' mindset
    • BEST practices forces to minimize experimentation
    • BEST practices are always Static as they are applicable for specific issue/cause

    Working in Agile ways is always about exploration (experimenting) and making course correction (inspect & adapt). Agile is not silver bullet, approach that works for one organization/team may not work for other and at the same time Agile is not a recipe of success either !!

    By nature Agile is about working towards flexibility, improvisation and continuous learning & exploration culture. None of the teams/organizations can stay in successful path when they run behind 'BEST' practices. The moment they stick to Best/Good practices teams lose the focus of staying in Continuous learning/improvement journey.

    Agile Practices/processes that work for one team/organization/program may not work well for another. So Scrum Masters/Agile Coaches/Management/teams should always look to learn from their mistakes and assess before taking next steps.

    From our experience, we have picked few dysfunctions and behaviors that are enough to kill soul of any organisation, slowly but surely. We will be using few games and polls to make people learn these dysfunctions. During this, we will also speak about Agile Spine Model (By Danie Roux, Kevin Trethewey, Joanne Perold) and Personal Behavioral Model, which can help people in making constructive decisions in various situations.
