  5. 5. Ground Rules• Electronics by exception•One conversation at a time•Participation & Respect•Timeliness• Anything else.. ? Not Agile
  6. 6. What’s not “Agile”
  7. 7. # AgileEverything is Agile • Resource location is agile • Resource reporting is agile • Requirement is agile by every day / every hour • Team composition is agileManager says • You are everything • You directly talk to the client and do what ever he asks you • d Large Projects
  8. 8. Agile is not meant for large projectsAgile doesn’t suite for large projects, because • Architecture can’t be build in small iterations • That is built on small iterations wouldn’t sustain for huge business application • It is always like chasing the moving target • Work assigning is a tedious task • Audit history for Change requests is uncontrollable • Product Owner is the paymaster and thus he dictates • what is to be done • when is to be done • d What’s Agile
  9. 9. 3 Steps3 Phases What’s Agile Bing has beyond ample list of web docs You can bing for Agile methodologies and it is easy to lost in the web hive with the tons of information that is available for you. Be careful, too much information is also fatal Local communities help you Now-a-days, Agile is being a buzz word within the industry as well as with venture capitalists, it is giving ample scope for the communities to come together. There are few local communities, please join them and get the different people’s understanding and implementation of Agility within their work space “quick and well-coordinated in movement” No definition @ either wikipedia (or) wikitionary They have definition for “Agility”, but not of agile. d Plan&Routes 9
  10. 10. Sometimes things don’t go as planned.Sometimes the original plan is the WRONG one!How do you know which is right?How do you know where you are? (answer: incremental development with feedback) route to planned goalWhat do you do at the moment of crisis? (1969 lunar landing) route to better goalgetting lost route to worse goal Step1:HowNextLevel
  11. 11. How to next level? Step 1The first Question is.. Are we professional? - Ken Schwaber is a difference between “Profession” and “Professional” One is a standard & the other is Behavior - David Starr Step2:What2BAgile
  12. 12. Step 2 – What has to be more Agile• Increasing the Customer Involvement [[Not to an extent of dictating who does what.. ]]• Improving the prioritization of Features [[Higher value features generate revenue.. ]]• Increasing the Team Buy-in & involvement [[Self organised teams doesn’t need work allocation ]]• Adapting to change During the Development [[Iterate methodology helps to reassess the features & Project Timeline ]] BusinessValue 12
  13. 13. System Evolution vs. Slices of BV• Mowing the lawn analogy – 4 “functions” to mow the law to get to “done, done, done” – Completing 1 “function” does not deliver “business value”• Deadline – Time Boxed• My kid is going to mow the lawn – will he do a good job? Front Back Sides Pick Up Trash Mow Trim & Edge Sweep Clippings BecomeWithin
  14. 14. Become Agile within Your Goal should not the be Next Level, but the Right level1. Assess your organization to determine where you should begin adding agility.2. Obtain executive support for the move to the Next level of Agile process.3. Get the development team involved in the migration process to ensure buy-in.4. Develop a clear understanding of your current processes by documenting them.5. Identify a coach or consultant to help you with your migration. That’s where I can help you.. 1. Review your current process, and look for areas that can be shifted to more Agile methods. Focus on areas with the most potential for improvement and the most value to the customer and your organization. The readiness assessment will also help with this task.2. Outline a custom process based on the findings from the previous step3. Try the new process on a pilot project.4. Review the findings after the pilot, make changes, and continue to scale out your new methodology.Source: Elders&Kids

  17. 17. The Proven Facts 1. There are two villages, Attari and Wazirgunj in Gaya, separated by a big hill. 2. Who does the layout for the Road between these villages? 3.
