Last week I gave the closing keynote in the Agile Dev Practices Conference that took place in Potsdam, Germany.
SAP has been on the way to implement LEAN/Agile for a few years now and it has been a deep change in the organization, affecting e.g. the setup of teams (small cross-functional teams) , the way they work (scrum) and the roles and responsibilities.
In this keynote I have:
Explained why SAP introduced Agile, what does Agile mean for us and then.
How we implemented it:
* Organizational changes (scrum teams with new roles – PO; no more Q-Teams)
* Introducing engineering practices by providing advanced trainings, e.g. for quality engineers, for developers, for teams, and show some key elements of those trainings and workshops.
** Customer focus – Design Thinking
** At the end I showed first where we are today and presented some results and learnings.
