Facilitating Agility:
Obligations of
Organizational
Leaders
Twin Cities Agile Days
St. Paul, Minnesota November 2019
Michael Levine
• We value people and interactions over
processes and tools.
• Business people and developers must work
together daily throughout the project.
• Build projects around motivated individuals.
Give them the environment and support they
need, and trust them to get the job done.
• Working software is the primary measure of
progress.
• The best architectures, requirements, and
designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
Is our
obligation to
provide space
and money
and then
stand back
and see what
happens?
Kick-off Principle: Light Governance
• Empowered teams.
• Streamlined and fast decision-making.
Team makes decisions unless they
decide to escalate.
• No status reports. If management
want to know what’s up, come to
demo.
• No management grilling of their
assigned team members. Team
members ask when they need
something.
Retrospective: Journey Owner
• “Most valuable element was my
meeting every morning at 7:30 with
the president of the business unit.”
• “In past we didn’t have such close
participation of senior executives in
our projects.”
• “This enabled us to get fast decisions
made, helped us get other groups to
pay attention and act, and got us the
resources we needed quickly.”
Not Just Management: Leadership for Agility
A new kind of endeavor………Requires a new kind of leadership
Building something complicated
Leadership for Agility
• Participating in & leading large
teams of talented and diverse
people to deliver highly
abstract, intellectually
challenging, complex and
valuable solutions, and
• Enabling many such teams
within larger organizations to
succeed.
Coordinating large number
of people to common goal
Now add: Integrating thousands of
ideas in new ways using new tools
that work invisibly for thousands of
people– over and over!
Leadership for Agility
Rigor
Ensuring
Good
Decisions
Hire & develop right talent,
experience, skills, and roles
Ensure teams have the right
composition
Expect & inspect rigorous decision-
making
Alignment
Everyone’s
Head in
Game,
Moving
Together
Get right involvement from each partner
Ensure communication flow to & from teams
Value consensus
When needed, make a decision
Efficiency
Respect
for people:
don’t
waste
their
valuable
time
Balance Agile & Planful Management
Establish a Few Common Frameworks
Make Meetings Work
Provide Tools
The A3
Originated at Toyota, part
of lean problem solving
Can be used to frame an
effort / project, solve a
problem, etc.
One page, diagrams and
charts
Nemawashi

Facilitating Agility: Obligations of Organizations Leaders

  • 1. Facilitating Agility: Obligations of Organizational Leaders Twin Cities Agile Days St. Paul, Minnesota November 2019 Michael Levine
  • 2. • We value people and interactions over processes and tools. • Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project. • Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done. • Working software is the primary measure of progress. • The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams. Is our obligation to provide space and money and then stand back and see what happens?
  • 3. Kick-off Principle: Light Governance • Empowered teams. • Streamlined and fast decision-making. Team makes decisions unless they decide to escalate. • No status reports. If management want to know what’s up, come to demo. • No management grilling of their assigned team members. Team members ask when they need something. Retrospective: Journey Owner • “Most valuable element was my meeting every morning at 7:30 with the president of the business unit.” • “In past we didn’t have such close participation of senior executives in our projects.” • “This enabled us to get fast decisions made, helped us get other groups to pay attention and act, and got us the resources we needed quickly.”
  • 4. Not Just Management: Leadership for Agility A new kind of endeavor………Requires a new kind of leadership Building something complicated Leadership for Agility • Participating in & leading large teams of talented and diverse people to deliver highly abstract, intellectually challenging, complex and valuable solutions, and • Enabling many such teams within larger organizations to succeed. Coordinating large number of people to common goal Now add: Integrating thousands of ideas in new ways using new tools that work invisibly for thousands of people– over and over!
  • 6. Rigor Ensuring Good Decisions Hire & develop right talent, experience, skills, and roles Ensure teams have the right composition Expect & inspect rigorous decision- making
  • 7. Alignment Everyone’s Head in Game, Moving Together Get right involvement from each partner Ensure communication flow to & from teams Value consensus When needed, make a decision
  • 8. Efficiency Respect for people: don’t waste their valuable time Balance Agile & Planful Management Establish a Few Common Frameworks Make Meetings Work Provide Tools
  • 9. The A3 Originated at Toyota, part of lean problem solving Can be used to frame an effort / project, solve a problem, etc. One page, diagrams and charts Nemawashi Rigor, Alignment, & Efficiency!
  • 10. The Architecture Simulation • Prepare business scenarios starting with customer • Lay out systems architecture • Run scenarios Audience participation Make it physical Make it human Have fun! Rigor, Alignment, Efficiency
