  3. 3. Presented at QCon San Francisco www.qconsf.comPurpose of QCon- to empower software development by facilitating the spread ofknowledge and innovationStrategy - practitioner-driven conference designed for YOU: influencers ofchange and innovation in your teams- speakers and topics driving the evolution and innovation- connecting and catalyzing the influencers and innovatorsHighlights- attended by more than 12,000 delegates since 2007- held in 9 cities worldwide
  4. 4. Presented by Joanna  Zweig,  Ph.D.   César  Idrovo  Integral  Systems  Response  
  5. 5. Recovery Time When  we  ask  teams  how  long  it  would  take  to  redo  their  work,  we  hear  “less  than  30%” How$long$to$recover$that$code?$ <10%% 10%% 20%% 30%% 40%% 50%% 60%% 70%% 80%% 90%% 100%% Coaching  Technique,  Ashley  Johnson  and  Amr  Elssamadisy,  Gemba  Systems  –  illustraNve  data  only  Integral  Systems  Response  
  6. 6. The Real Activity SoOware  Development  is  mostly…    _not_  about  soOware  development   Actually,  what  you  mainly   pay  your  developers  for  is   their  capacity  to  LEARN   As  parNcipants  in  a  GROUP.  Integral  Systems  Response  
  7. 7. Nature of Group Learning Group  learning  is  not  the  sum  of   individual  learning.  At  the   group  level,  learning   is  oOen  emergent   While  group  learning  includes   all  of  the  perspecNves  of  the  parNcipants,   it  also  involves  ingredients  that  the  individuals   may  be  unaware  of.  Thus  emergent  learning  may  be   both  unpredictable  AND  holisNcally  appropriate  to  what   the  group  is  trying  to  accomplish.  Integral  Systems  Response  
  8. 8. Emergence If  our  only  knowledge  of  H  was  as  the  fuel  of  a  star,  and   O  as  the  gas  we  breathe,  we  probably  would  not  expect   the  emergence  of  water  when  these  gasses  combine.       +   =       Hydrogen   Oxygen   Water  !       Emergence  is  unexpected,  unplanned  and  someNmes   unimaginable  Integral  Systems  Response  
  9. 9. The 70% Effort   Agile  helps  us  to  opNmize  the  70%     It  can  acNvate  learning  capabiliNes  in  the     WriNng   SoOware   organizaNon.  The  group  learns  how  to   Learning   tackle  new  problems  as  a  group.   ResulNng  interacNons  can  create   Effort   emergent  outcomes  for  each  group.     WriNng   The  value  of  the  new  learning  capabiliNes   SoOware   Learning   is  to  shrink  the  70%.     Improving  the  effecNveness  and  efficiency  of  group  learning   speeds  up  delivery  (total  area  of  the  circle  is  reduced)  Integral  Systems  Response  
  10. 10. Discovery Curves - Waterfall TheoreNcal  example  of  an  expected  learning  curve  in  soOware  development. Integral  Systems  Response  
  11. 11. Discovery Curves - Agile We  need  teams  that  can  learn  like  this.  Ongoing  planning,  learn  by  delivering. Integral  Systems  Response  
  12. 12. Discovery Curves - Yours Select  a  project  from  someone  in  your  group  and  draw  a  discovery  curve  of  that  project.  Examples:          5min  Nmebox,  then  we  share  highlights  with  the  whole  group.  Integral  Systems  Response  
  13. 13. Group Learning and Coherence Joanna’s  research  has  idenNfied  a  phenomenon,  Group  Coherence  (GC),  that  indicates  the  emergence  of  group  learning.  We  will  look  at  the  value  of  GC  and  idenNfy  ways  to  opNmize  group’s  ability  to  access  this  learning.  Integral  Systems  Response  
  14. 14. What is Group Coherence? The  shared  state  reached  by  a  group  of  people  that  allows  them  to  perform  one  or  more  tasks  in  perfect  rhythm  and   harmony  with  great  energy  to  overcome  obstacles  Integral  Systems  Response

  17. 17. Your Best Group Experience 1.  Remember  a  Nme   when  your  group   experience  was  the  best   one  you’ve  ever  had.     This  may  have  been  an   experience  of  Group   Coherence.  Integral  Systems  Response  
  18. 18. Create One Ingredient Profile 2.  Select  an  ingredient   you  associate  with  your   opNmal  group   experience.     Write  your  ingredient   and  chart  it  on  paper.    Integral  Systems  Response  
  19. 19. Past Ingredients / Current Group 3.  Share  ingredients  and   their  profiles  with  a  triad.   Address  the  influence  of   each  ingredient  on  the   group’s  ability.   How  could  it  help  my   current  group  to  learn   achieve  its  goals  Integral  Systems  Response   ©    Integral  Systems  Response  2009-­‐20  
  20. 20. On Monday… Chart  your  discovery  curve   IdenNfy  apparent  ingredients  and   ingredients  that  are  missing   Determine  how  changing  emphasis  on  an   ingredient  might  assist  your  group  in   achieving  its  goals.  Integral  Systems  Response
