the agile influencer’s mantra
a unique opportunity for business in jacksonville!
today

✤   today’s goal = mantra =
    influence your appreciation of
    the philosophy, forces and
    dynamics around Agile.

✤   philosophy of Agile adoption.

✤   forces influencing Agile
    adoption.

✤   dynamics influencing the
    success of the Agile
    Influencers.
mantra

✤   what is the “mantra” for the
    Agile Influencing team?

✤   mantra = man + tra = “mind” +
    “liberation“ and “this moment
    here and now”.

✤   the process improvement team
    wants to be there a moment
    before the entire organization.

✤   in fact, every moment is an
    opportunity to succeed or fail
introduction
SIRAJ - process improvement influencer, observer and student
siraj

✤   18 years experience with
    process improvement
    consulting and coaching.

✤   excellent track record of
    coaching leaders and teams on
    process improvement (using
    Lean, Kanban, Agile, Scrum,
    CMMI, Six Sigma, SOX)

✤   deep and varied domain
    experience.
philosophy
the philosophy of agile adoption
agile
recap and history of the agile manifesto
respect

✤   all process improvement styles
    and techniques are about
    respect for humanity.

✤   and

✤   respect for the forces.

✤   and

✤   respect for team dynamics.
forces
forces to respect before, during and after agile process adoption
uniqueness

✤   every leader and team and
    their process improvement
    opportunity is unique.

✤   the challenge is to recognize
    this uniqueness

✤   enjoy the moment before
    starting process improvement

✤   you will never be the same
    again
leverage

✤   The leverage exists within this
    uniqueness.

✤   finding this leverage is the
    challenge.

✤   the agile influencer’s mantra
    provides deep insight.

✤   but you still have to find it in
    your unique context.
context

✤   knowing the context helps

✤   economy, industry,
    competitors, divisions,
    finances, strategy,

✤   culture is context.

✤   the team is a subset of the
    context.

✤   context, context, context.
contradictions

✤   process improvement
    initiatives explore the
    contradictions that make the
    organization a living organism.

✤   contradictions are neither good
    nor bad.

✤   they are just present.

✤   contradictions provide
    “leverage” for process
    improvement initiatives.
delay


✤   delay exists naturally in every
    context.

✤   actions / events of today have
    long term consequences.

✤   sustainability requires attention
    to delay.
balance

✤   the context seeks natural
    balance and a shared vision.

✤   always!

✤   equilibrium triumphs over all
    change initiatives.

✤   “agile” is a disruption of this
    natural equilibrium unless
    agile also seeks true balance.
safety

✤   safety provides the net for
    leaders, followers and teams to
    explore process improvement.

✤   the level of safety in an
    organization is the ceiling level
    of process improvement.

✤   especially for the agile
    influencer
heartbeat


✤   the living organism that is your
    organization, has a natural
    heartbeat and a natural pulse.

✤   recognizing this cadence is
    essential for the agile
    influencer.
dynamics
team dynamics that enable the success of the agile influencer
continuous

✤   nature’s own continuous
    improvement is our guide.

✤   it is almost as if continuously
    improving processes is the only
    aim of process improvement.

✤   every day is a new day for
    process improvement.

✤   it is the journey and the
    destination.
clean slate


✤   the no-baggage policy of the
    agile influencer

✤   clean slate adds to the
    commitment to each team
    member and creates the
    emotional heartbeat of the
    team.
flexibility

✤   rigidity is the enemy!!

✤   create a team that can have
    learning conversations, share
    differences, withstand stress

✤   and yet unite and move
    forward

✤   authentically!!
courage

✤   courage (plus grace)

✤   allows the influencers to face
    facts, realize concerns, develop
    solutions.

✤   influencers need courage in
    their heart, mind and soul

✤   to be courageous and yet
    caring.
visibility


✤   the processes that become
    visible provide best candidates
    for process improvement.

✤   agile influencers strive to
    provide visibility of their own
    processes to set the tone for
    visibility for the organization.
trust ...but
verify



✤   In GOD we trust, every one
    else bring data!
supplication



✤   the agile influencer reaches out
    to a greater source of energy

✤   plugs in to the larger self

✤   offers supplication
anomalies

✤   anomalies test the boundaries
    of comfort for the organization.

✤   they stretch the organization’s
    limits for process improvement
    one day, one team, one
    individual at a time.

✤   they are also pioneers

✤   and

✤   nomads!
