  6. 6. © 2018 Our Research on Agile Transformation Reasons for Fail or Hassle ● Management pushes Agile yet is not willing to adapt processes including planning and reporting. ● Team adopts Agile with little Business Transformation Change Management effort to persuade others… ● Treating an Agile Transformation as a Sprint rather than a project... 2 Flavors of Success 1. Grassroots - Team adopts Agile. Customers support. Org leaves them alone… 2. Top Down - Management pushes Agile. Teams are given support and time to normalize. Org processes adapt including planning and reporting. page 6

  10. 10. © 2018 Our Research on Agile ‘Starting’ Important during Start ● Systems Thinking: Who are all the stakeholders including those who authorize projects through implementation and Ops? ● Goals: What is reasonable to expect in terms of product and process? ● Engage: Involve Everyone with small tasks and communication. This will really set new process expectations and roles and responsibilities. page 10

  14. 14. © 2018 Our Research on Agile Retrospective Team Engagement What does NOT work ● Meeting after every Sprint to ‘discuss’ good and bad. ● Creating a Retrospective document or meeting minutes will all things good and bad. (Hint: do the math for 2 week Sprints, 25 teams, over a year, could yield 600 docs a year…) What works ● Document Your Processes and Templates - Every process should have a document or section… ● Edit Your Processes, Templates and Product Backlog - In your Retrospective meetings! Update what you control and add Backlog items for the ones taking extra effort. page 14
