  3. 3. 3 Scaling Agile Practices Innovation is increasingly being driven by software Source: Mobile banking: A catalyst for improving bank performance, Deloitte, 2010; and This Car Runs on Code, Robert Charette, IEEE Spectrum, 2009. Mobile banking will be the most widely used banking channel by 2020, if not sooner The average 2010 automobile contains more lines of software code than a fighter jet

  8. 8. 8 Scaling Agile Practices Agile Framework XP • Based on simplicity, communication, feedback, courage, and respect • Start simple and add complexity through refactoring Scrum SCRUM • Small teams of 6-9 people • “Backlog” defined requirements that will be addressed in each Sprint • Daily 15 minute Scrum meeting to discuss work for the day Crystal • Frequent delivery • Reflective improvement Lean • Based on 7 core principles (e.g.,, • Eliminating waste, • amplifying learning • Building Integrity in from start • Uses Kanban and Value stream mapping to improve team performance Feature Driven • Develop feature list • Plan, Design, Build by Feature Test-driven development Planning game Pair Programming Refactoring Agile Practices - The above methods involve a range of techniques including: Continuous integration Design improvement Small releases Simple design Static Analysis Coding standard Sustainable pace Whole team “Agile” is generally a overloaded term in the industry… Disciplined Agile • People-first, learning-oriented hybrid agile approach to IT solution delivery. • It has a risk-value lifecycle, is goal- driven, is scalable, and is enterprise aware.

  10. 10. 10 Scaling Agile Practices What is Scaled Agile? Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) Big Picture http://scaledagileframework.com/ Dean Leffingwell has elaborated this approach in: – Agile Software Requirements: Lean Requirements for Teams Programs and the Enterprise (2011) – Scaling Software Agility: Best Practices for Large Enterprises, (2007) – scalingsoftwareagilityblog.com. Backed up by SAFe Program Consultant (SPC) and SAFe Agilitist (SA) – Certification process: http://scaledagileacademy.com The Scaled Agile Framework® (pronounced SAFe™) is an interactive knowledge base for implementing agile practices at enterprise scale.
  11. 11. 11 Scaling Agile Practices Some Thoughts on Agile Methods Scrum – Works great. Less filling. Ubiquitous. Scrumptious. Let’s Sprint. Extreme Programming – Really great code from really great coders. We can scale great code. Extremely useful. Let’s Program with it. Kanban – Clear thinking on flow, demand management and limiting wip. Let’s flow, limit WIP and manage demand with it. 11 But if these innovative methods don’t have the native constructs to address the view beyond the team − the systems view − shouldn’t we do something about that? And, on behalf of millions of practitioners, working on really big systems in really big companies, and struggling badly with existing approaches, don’t we have an obligation to try?

  13. 13. 13 Scaling Agile Practices Distributed Planning May have to do planning in two chunks of time rather than one solid (4-hour) block Will need/want an electronic agile planning tool to pull stories into the Sprint plan Typically use electronic modeling, drawing tools and screen sharing. May do some diagrams offline and share electronically. Easy Planning Poker (Chat, everyone enters the number of story points) Teams will share files and links to facilitate discussions 13
