Every enterprise wants to develop software better, but adopting a methodology which fails to take into account your organization’s context, culture, and regulatory or legacy obligations is usually too risky. Too radical a change too quickly, or the wrong change too forcefully, can drive a wedge between engineering and business. Complete or partial process failures compound themselves by demoralizing the team. There is a better way. All of the popular lean and agile methodologies offer valuable insights and are backed by real success stories, but no methodology can work if it’s carelessly or dogmatically applied. In the enterprise, it’s critical to identify and focus quickly on your unique leverage points. Starting up right allows you to create early wins and then build upon your teams’ success to achieve real gains faster than you could have imagined. This workshop exposes the practices and measures that drive continued improvement, and how they can be introduced gently to the organization. We show you how incremental, measurable improvements can be adopted with minimal risk. Think you have to rework your entire development process and radically change everything overnight to get agile success? Think again. Real improvements are easily accomplished without the need for radical changes, using the tools taught in this workshop. We explore ideas from lean, kanban, the Theory of Constraints, and of course, agile principles and Scrum, all with the perspective you need to identify and put in place the right practices for your organization.
