  3. 3. #taas14 @jasonlittle GOOGLE: “WHY AGILE FAILS” RESULTS: 4,230,000
  4. 4. #taas14 @jasonlittle METHODOLOGISTS SAY: “YOU DIDN’T USE THE TOOL RIGHT!”
  5. 5. #taas14 @jasonlittle CULTURE PEOPLE SAY: “YOU DIDN’T CHANGE YOUR CULTURE!”
  6. 6. #taas14 @jasonlittle MINDSET PEOPLE SAY: “YOU DIDN’T CHANGE YOUR MINDSET”
  7. 7. #taas14 @jasonlittle MANAGEMENT GURUS SAY: “LACK OF MANAGEMENT SUPPORT”
  8. 8. #taas14 AGILE ZEALOTS SAY: “YOU TRIED TO DO AGILE INSTEAD OF BE AGILE!” @jasonlittle
  9. 9. #taas14 @jasonlittle THE CONSULTANT YOU DIDN’T HIRE WILL SAY: “THAT OTHER CONSULTANT SHOULD HAVE…”
  10. 10. #taas14 @jasonlittle SYSTEM THINKERS SAY: “ONLY IN RETROSPECT CAN YOU UNDERSTAND… COMPLEX ADAPTIVE SYSTEMS THEORY SAYS….”
  11. 11. #taas14 @jasonlittle THE TRUTH IS…
  12. 12. #taas14 @jasonlittle THEY’RE ALL RIGHT… …AND THEY’RE ALL WRONG!
  13. 13. #tas14 @jasonlittle HINDSIGHT IS ALWAYS 20/20 but looking back, it’s still a bit fuzzy
  14. 14. #tas14 @jasonlittle NOBODY GIVES A SH*T ABOUT YOUR MODELS! Well, us consultants do, but normal people don’t!
  15. 15. #taas14 @jasonlittle SO WHAT CAN YOU DO?
  16. 16. #taas14 @jasonlittle CHANGE != TRANSFORMATION
  17. 17. #tas14 @jasonlittle CHANGE IS PAST-THINKING compare future state to current state, root-cause, 5 why’s, problem exploration
  18. 18. #tas14 @jasonlittle TRANSFORMATION IS FUTURE-THINKING leaves the past behind, focuses on what ‘could be’, today’s actions influence tomorrow’s results
  19. 19. #tas14 BUT LET’S IGNORE THE DIFFERENCES …for now… @jasonlittle
  20. 20. #tas14 “RESISTANCE” the objective BELIEFS @jasonlittle DIVERGENCE IN UNDERSTANDING INNOVATORS AND EARLY ADOPTERS EARLY/LATE MAJORITY “LAGGARDS AND RESISTERS”
  21. 21. #taas14 @jasonlittle HOW CAN WE CREATE ALIGNMENT? 1) CO-CREATE CHANGE 2) FREQUENTLY INSPECT AND ADAPT 3) THINK OF CHANGES AS TIME-BOUND “EXPERIMENTS”
  22. 22. #tas14 CREATE A STRATEGIC CHANGE CANVAS VALIDATE WITH THE PEOPLE AFFECTED J L FEED TEAM FEEDBACK INTO YOUR STRATEGIC CHANGE CANVAS @jasonlittle CREATE A TACTIAL CHANGE CANVAS THE TEAMS OWN
  23. 23. #tas14 STRATEGIC CHANGE CANVAS @jasonlittle
  24. 24. #tas14 TEAM VISION @jasonlittle WHAT IS WORKING WHAT IS SUPPORTING THE CHANGE? AGAINST THE CHANGE? STRONG SUPPORT SEVERE BLOCK WHAT HELP DO WE NEED? OPTIONS PREPARE INTRODUCE REVIEW COST VALUE Where does the team want to be in 6 months? A year? what help does the team need to contribute to this vision? WHAT’S OUR PLAN? Experiments we can do to contribute to the overall change strategy Experiments being planned Experiments in progress Experiments being reviewed against expected outcomes TEAM/DEPARTMENT TACTICAL EXECUTION CANVAS
  25. 25. #tas14 @_apriljefferson AND NOW… a story from April!

  31. 31. #tas14 REVIEW @_apriljefferson
  32. 32. #tas14 NOT CONVINCED? Here’s another story from Carlos!
  33. 33. Who we are… A Very Large Enterprise Company Looking to Adopt Agile Methods # of employees 40,000 % of Projects running Agile very few Large portion of the employee base works remotely
  34. 34. When do we change? When is it a good time to evolve? Good Time to Evolve Growth Phase This is going to be more challenging Time Growth
  35. 35. What does Agile change look like?
  36. 36. It can appear like a Big Scary Monster! It can appear a scary monster… Objects in the mirror appear larger than they really are… http://www.goldflakepaint.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/bsm.jpg
  37. 37. ItT hdeo Oerigsinnal ’Ct hnanegee Cda ntvoas be scary! Have a Conversation: “Why…?”
  38. 38. What is the riskiest assumption?
  39. 39. Does Riskiest the assumption business even care? http://gamemoir.files.wordpress.com/2013/12/spongebob.jpeg
  40. 40. TThiepr: eId iesn ati fgy oyoodur c ehaarlny caed oypotue’rlls find folks that care… Someone out there in your organization is tired of the “old” traditional way and is looking to try something new!
  41. 41. How do we set them up for success?
  42. 42. Using a canvas… Business Product ? Team
  43. 43. Customizing team change canvas… What is supporting this vision? What is working against this vision? strong leadership What’s on our plan? Experiments we can do to contribute to the overall change strategy? Prepare Experiments being planned Introduce Experiments in progress Review Experiments being reviewed against expected outcomes Our team vision as it relates to the strategic outcomes… value cost high engagement structure stable teams adopt scrum more appropriate solutions TDD daily standups kanban board
  44. 44. What we started to notice… Agile Adoption Increased 900% % of team members that would recommend Agile methods to other teams 96%
  45. 45. What do we do with major impediments?
  46. 46. Vision Where are we going as an organization, and why are we doing this? What are we trying to achieve? Outcomes What is the top outcome we’re looking to achieve? Barrier to Success What are the top 3 problems we face in reaching our outcome? Importance Why is this important to overcome as an organization, what is the cost of delay? Who & What? Who and what is impacted the most by these problems? Assumptions Customizing the change strategy canvas… Key Assumption Options? How we measure? Key Learnings? 1 2 3 faster delivery better quality customer satisfaction employee satisfaction Who? faster cycle time long testing cycles competitive advantage dev & support teams policies structure reward systems
  47. 47. What we learned Partnerships are key No sacred cows (executive support) Keep it visible Be clear on what you’re learning and measuring Keep it iterative
  48. 48. Keep It Big and Visible!
  49. 49. Keep experimenting & learning! Thank you!
  50. 50. #tas14 THREE FINAL THOUGHTS The “canvas” doesn’t matter Face-to-face communication Tactical execution tips @jasonlittle
  51. 51. #tas14 @jasonlittle THE “CANVAS” DOESN’T MATTER BUT THE CONVERSATIONS DO!
  52. 52. #tas14 @jasonlittle CHANGE MANAGEMENT SAFARI! Make your canvases visible, stop using status reports and GO TALK TO PEOPLE!
  53. 53. #tas14 BUT HOW?!?!? • Refresh canvases quarterly via existing team meetings • Weekly lean coffee sessions sponsored by executives • monthly all-team retrospectives • Management 3.0 Work Expo @jasonlittle More tools at: leanchange.org/resources
  54. 54. IF PEOPLE IN A 50,000+, FORTUNE 100 COMPANY THINKS IT’LL WORK, “I LOVE THE CANVAS, IT’S MORE OF A CONVERSATION TOOL, LESS ABOUT CREATING HEAVY DUTY CHANGE PLANS, AND IT STILL DOCUMENTS THINGS AND KEEPS PEOPLE ALIGNED. “ BARB HELLER, ORGANIZATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS CONSULTANT IT CAN WORK FOR YOU TOO.
