DevOpsCon Munich 2019
December 2, 2019 - December 4, 2019
I’m returning to DevOpsCon to talk about Organizational Agility: Taking Retrospectives to the Next Level and do a mini-workshop on Impediments. Join me in Munich on December 3-4, 2019.
Organizational Agility: Taking Retrospectives to the Next Level
Nowadays many agile teams are doing retrospectives regularly. They are investing time to reflect, learn, and take action to improve their way of working and deal with problems that they are facing in a structural way.
Organizations are seeing the benefits from this: teams that are becoming empowered, being able to deliver more value, happy employees, and fewer people leaving the organization.
It’s time to take retrospectives to a higher level, and use them to reveal and solve systematic organizational problems. Problems that exist at a project or product level, are related to the collaboration between teams and their stakeholders. Agile Retrospectives can be used to do that, but you need a different approach.
In this session, Ben Linders will show how we can use retrospectives to improve the agility of organizations.
He will explore:
- How we can actively involve external stakeholders into the team retrospectives
- What can be done to focus retrospectives on end-to-end goals and organizational-wide collaboration
- How to do multi-team retrospectives at the project, product, or system level
- How to create transparency on the targets and show how teams contribute to them in retrospectives
- How to assist teams in self-assessing their agility
The Impediment Board Game
Problem? What Problem? Learn how to deal effectively with Impediments
If your organization wants to become agile and lean, teams need to be able to handle impediments quickly and effectively. Playing the Impediment Board Game, you will practice how to recognize and analyze impediments, understand how they hinder teams, and decide what to do by deploying agile and lean principles and good practices. You’ll learn to become more effective by recognizing impediments early and get rid of them before they become a major issue.
The impediment game teaches you the five steps for handling impediments effectively:
- recognize and analyze impediments
- find out how they hinder the team
- find effective solutions to deal with them
- decide what to do and who can do it
- learn how to become more effective in dealing with impediments
Agile coaches use the Impediment Board Game in agile transformations to coach teams and help them to become self-organized and empowered to solve any impediments that they might face on their agile journey. Come play the Impediment Board Game!
