05 Eelco Rustenburg -Blinklane- Increase Agility

  1. 1. Agile in the SAP world Agile in the REAL world Agile in the BIG world
  2. 2. What are these strange new words to conquer the world? ?!?!? Scrum Minimum Viable Product Marketable Feature set Agile Grmbl!
  3. 3. “Startup: a human institution designed to create new products and services under conditions of extreme uncertainty.” Integrated Landscape
  4. 4. Two tough questions Agile Principle #7. Working software is the primary measure of progress. CHANGE What is the current progress in the program? The Lean Startup: Validated Learning is the Primary Measure of Progress: How many assumptions are validated?
  5. 5. Assumptions The Process Framework will predict the validity of SAP templates The SAP templates will be reusable The architecture principles will be adhered to We know what to build Best practices will have strong cross sector fit Product Owners will prioritize according to actual needs Business knows what they need Process harmonization will not hamper reusability Business Requirements will not change during build / deployment
  6. 6. Scrum: Agile applied
  7. 7. The Idea in Short The goal of a startup is to figure out the right thing to build – the thing customers (internal or external) want and will pay for – as quickly as possible. Lean Startup is a methodology that helps to move to the right direction quickly by systematic experiments.
  8. 8. Why? If you make something nobody wants, it does not matter whether you make it on time or on budget. The difficulty of a startup comes from its inherent uncertainty. We don’t know who all our user are and what value we should offer them. That is why we need an approach to empirically achieve validated learning
  9. 9. A great marriage Agile Agile’s highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. Efforts that do not contribute to working software is waste. Lean Startup In the Lean Startup model, every product, every feature, is understood to be an experiment designed to achieve validated learning. The effort that is not absolutely necessary for learning is waste. Waste should be eliminated
  10. 10. Create the “Minimum Viable Product” (MVP) A MVP has just those features that allow the product to be deployed and tested, and no more. It is a version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning with the least effort.

  12. 12. Side by side “Minimum Viable Product” (MVP) A MVP has just those features that allow the product to be deployed and tested, and no more. “Minimal Marketable Feature” set (MMF) A MMF is a set of features that can be deployed and generates actual demand. It can be iteratively improved over time towards the ideal solution The skeleton The Mona Lisa
  13. 13. “Minimum Viable Product” in SAP simplest version to: 1. Validate underlying assumptions 2. Mitigate risks by facing them early 3. Get feedback from end-users 4. Go through the entire cycle (including deployment) 5. Understand the components for the Minimum Marketable Feature set Einstein: “The simplest thing that works, but not any simpler”
  14. 14. How can we know ‘it will work’? Be a shame if someone were to test it
  15. 15. How? The core process in achieving the vision is Validated Learning. - Value hypothesis tests whether a product or service really delivers to end-users once they are using it. - Growth hypothesis tests how customers will discover a product or service to determine reusability future usage.
