  • - describe what we’ll talk about and how we’ll talk about it - had to leave stuff out, but there’s a website you can go to - I’ll set the stage, Ardi will dive deeper into projects and I’ll close with spreading outside of IT.
  • - lots of inertia, seen agile come and go already - layoffs, kanban and business transformation at the same time
  • - similar to dept of labour in the US - perceived as a government org but not really a gov org
  • - joke was that IT couldn’t deliver anything for less than half-a-million and it was crap anyway
  • - john’s idea to implement kanban, agile etc and do the same thing they did at the previous org by outsourcing the ‘transformation program’.
  • - mention the broad skill, communication + professional coaching, scrum masters, agile coaches, six sigma
  • - how we invented our own change method - refer people to Alexis’ session
  • - first revision, failed measuring throughput 3 times - evolved into a simpler version
  • - kanban walks - connecting functional boards together - primarily ran risks, issues, blockers at the standup
  • Transition: by now we started seeing some results from projects, started getting some lagging metrics that were showing progress and Ardi will talk about that...
  • handoff to the socialization
  • - decided to only visualize work, co-locate team and involve stakeholder in stand-ups - cots project (explain ‘commerical off the shelf’ just in case!) - didn’t make sense to reverse engineer the whole product
  • CFD provided early warning that the project didn’t take advantage of. Rod asked if they needed more time, the PM’s said no but they ended up being late anyway. - coach got in trouble for ‘raising the flag’ even tho we were supposed to
  • removed a huge chunk of scope, didn’t meet any delivery date, went over-budget but team won perseverance award.
  • - mention the major artifacts posted here
  • while these projects were going on, we started branching outside of IT to remove obstacles teams were having. Jason will talk about some of those things.
  • - show the initiatives that died, which ones we’ll talk about and which ones we won’t
  • - show the initiatives that died, which ones we’ll talk about and which ones we won’t
  • - another re-org, more outsourcing, half the coaching team left,
