Scrum Day UA 2019 - The Future of Agile

  1. 1. “Beginning to think is beginning to be undermined.” Albert Camus - The myth of Sisyphus
  2. 2. 2© 2003-2019 Gunther Verheyen – Ullizee-Inc, - @Ullizee My personal compass Throughout the years I have discovered I prefer ideas and ideals over positions and titles. It made me realize I value independence and freedom of thought over corporate and commercial structures. Rather than regretting or mourning them, I aspire embracing all consequences. I don’t expect this to change in the foreseeable future.
  3. 3. Gunther Verheyen, Ullizee-Inc Scrum. Connector, writer, speaker, humaniser. The future of Agile Musings of an independent Scrum Caretaker Gunther Verheyen Scrum Day UA Kyiv, 16 March 2019
  4. 4. 4© 2003-2019 Gunther Verheyen – Ullizee-Inc, - @Ullizee The reality of many organizations (disconnectedness)
  5. 5. 5© 2003-2019 Gunther Verheyen – Ullizee-Inc, - @Ullizee What now? “We need an Agile transformation !” We were (are) not organized for complexity
  6. 6. 6© 2003-2019 Gunther Verheyen – Ullizee-Inc, - @Ullizee Combined with: • Lack of team spaces • Team instability • Meeting pressure (culture) • Delivery / deadline pressure • Endless waves of lay-offs Enter the new complexity domain “Catastrophy”. The reality of many Agile transformations (an illusion)
  7. 7. 7© 2003-2019 Gunther Verheyen – Ullizee-Inc, - @Ullizee More Agile teams does not make a more Agile organization
  8. 8. 8© 2003-2019 Gunther Verheyen – Ullizee-Inc, - @Ullizee It is not a transformation if it doesn’t change how you work. It is not an Agile transformation if it doesn’t simplify how you work. It is not an Agile transformation with Scrum if it doesn’t motivate people to collaborate. (fyi. All of the above is in vain without attention to technical excellence) Three indicators to detect the illusion of agility
  9. 9. “All models are wrong, even the ones that are right. Some are just more wrong than others.” Gunther Verheyen
  10. 10. 10© 2003-2019 Gunther Verheyen – Ullizee-Inc, - @Ullizee What the Agile Manifesto says. It starts and ends with… people “Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.”
  11. 11. 11© 2003-2019 Gunther Verheyen – Ullizee-Inc, - @Ullizee Premises to an Agile transformation People are naturally Agile (adaptive). Process follows people. Structure follows process.
  12. 12. 12© 2003-2019 Gunther Verheyen – Ullizee-Inc, - @Ullizee Re-imagine your Scrum to anchor your agility • Select a (1) meaningful initiative (project/product/service) – Slice if too BIG • Re-imagine your Scrum for the selected initiative/slice: – Use Product Backlog as the single plan – Reset your accountabilities: • Product Owner • Scrum Master • Development Team(s) – Facilitate with tools, infrastructure and a (Scrum) team zone • Create sashimi releases – Through a controlled and automated deployment pipeline Repeat
  13. 13. 13© 2003-2019 Gunther Verheyen – Ullizee-Inc, - @Ullizee • Self-organization is more constrained by an organization than by people’s intrinsic abilities • Scrum provides boundaries for self- organization to be more effective – Accountabilities and minimal rules – Time-boxing – Releasable Increments • Self-organization works better against goals – Organizational purpose and mission – Product Vision – Sprint Goal Along the road: consider ‘self-organization’
  14. 14. 15© 2003-2019 Gunther Verheyen – Ullizee-Inc, - @Ullizee The future of Agile, actually, is in the small
