This year’s Scaling Agile India (SCAIN) is going virtual!

As the Great Confucius said: “By three methods we may learn wisdom; by reflection which is noblest; by imitation which is easiest and by experience which is the bitterest.”  Building on the former philosophy,  the objective of our conference is to learn from each other by sharing the experience and knowledge. SCAIN 2020 will introduce two tracks; Business Agility and Emotion Agility.

This conference will be hosted by Gladwell Academy’s Agile Coach, SPCT and founder of SCAIN, Anand Murthy Raj. Expect an exciting event to catch-up and share best practices with your peers!

Leadership – Fulcrum above and beyond

What to expect

We all would be aware about Leadership but how a Leader has to be in current VUCA world is something which we will embark upon. Leadership is like Love – Mother n Son, Father n Daughter, Brother n sister and the love of leader with his team, which is an evolving journey. In the current world where knowledge is abandonedly available the Leader has to have idiosyncratic characteristic to drive the vision. Leadership that impacts is about knowing one’s strength, is about earning respect, loyality and commitment from the team, is about decisive decision making, vision, communication and above all lead with a spirit of humility. Leadership is not a easy task but those who have led in some form or other know how difficult is it to leave an engrave and reverberations that is positive and inspiring.

Bard of Rewards: Team driven rewards and recognitions

What to expect

Is it possible to recognize top performers and boost team performance at the same time?
Recognizing a single team member seems to have a positive and contagious effect on all the other members in the team.
In Agile world we talk about empowering team and navigate them to become self-organized. Then why stick to management driven awards which will dilute over a period of time.

Is it possible to recognize top performers and boost team performance at the same time?
Recognizing a single team member seems to have a positive and contagious effect on all the other members in the team.
In Agile world we talk about empowering team and navigate them to become self-organized. Then why stick to management driven awards which will dilute over a period of time.

To overcome this, every team needs to form some better practices for implementing recognition fairly and effectively. High performing organizations should follow a bottom-up approach to appreciate that the special individual contribution and award should be given by the team to the deserving team members. Organizations should become innovative, and innovation requires teamwork for the progress of fresh solutions. Team-based incentives create, as well as emphasize, the demand for collaboration across the team. Team-based reward system is more benefited where the organization has a more individualistic culture. The team-based reward will function better when the task interdependence is immense.

Takeaways:
Transparency: R & R program become more transparent Collaboration: Team feel privileged to collaborate
Trust: as the program is transparent Trust can be easily built. Innovation: Team can come up with ideas outside the technology.

Five perfect ways to fail SAFe

What to expect

During my career as an Agile Coach and SAFe Program Consultant I have seen my share of misinterpretations of the Scaled Agile Framework, failed implementations, misused practices and believe it or not made some stupid mistakes myself along the way. In this talk I want to share five of these failures as a learning opportunity for all of you. Don’t expect any fancy solutions or well- thought-out strategies just plain simple experiences that will make you laugh and that you’ll remember to avoid in your own scaling journey.

Innovation as a Culture – Democratizing Innovation

What to expect

The talk on innovation as a culture will be rooted in busting the myths around innovation labs, sacred spaces for innovation are not the way teams will be able to innovate. Democratizing innovation is a way that I have spoken to team about and also created the environment for it to grow naturally within the teams.

The talk on innovation as a culture will be rooted in busting the myths around innovation labs, sacred spaces for innovation are not the way teams will be able to innovate. Democratizing innovation is a way that I have spoken to team about and also created the environment for it to grow naturally within the teams.

Innovation for so long has been considered to be the privilege of few who get the access to the ‘Innovation Lab’. This construct breaks down the aspect of freedom to innovate at scale. I believe that people align on the need for innovation only if they align on the ‘why’ of the client needs. Allowing teams to shape up a vision of tomorrow directly with the clients – without any bureaucracy. I will share a real life example on how a team changed the actions first and then behaviors in this regard.

This kind of culture is like a tidal wave , where each of the doer’s have now become thinkers. They become one of the customers using the solution and experiment with emerging technologies. Desire to change and experiment is something that connects the teams together. My endeavor is to provide an environment (a liquid network) where such a culture is enhanced, slow hunches are connected and brilliant ideas spawn up. This is not a day in life event (Hackathon), but rather a journey each one traverses over time and form a part of the team culture.

Key takeaways from the talk
1. Actions will precede the behavior change – in democratizing innovation
2. Structure and/or scaffolding is needed to support the change in initial days
3. the network effects will soon take over and the innovation engine will be unstoppable 4. this will be the true differentiator for the organization (not cost, margins)

Transformations as storytelling

What to expect

“Agile transformations are stories we need to keep telling ourselves.”
The Agile transformation usually launches from a burning platform: a clear and present
danger to escape from. Time to market frustrates; competitors nip at the heels,
customers complain; workloads bring colleagues to despair.

“Agile transformations are stories we need to keep telling ourselves.”
The Agile transformation usually launches from a burning platform: a clear and present
danger to escape from. Time to market frustrates; competitors nip at the heels,
customers complain; workloads bring colleagues to despair.

Five years into the journey however, with the low-hanging fruit more or less harvested, people
tend to forget what it was that brought them to seek the change.
Losing sight of the why, new frustrations brought on imperfections in the new ways of
working may lead to change fatigue and even a desire to return to the bad old
ways. How do you ‘keep the nightmare fresh’ to keep the dream alive?

In this workshop by master storyteller Boris de Jong, you’ll become familiar with basic
principles of modern-day storytelling to keep the fires of change burning
bright.
