In his session at Agile Coffee Talk, Sanjay Gupta will share insights on how Agile Portfolio Planning can help businesses in scaling Agiile across their organization. He will share how businesses can set strategic guidance and create organization alignment from strategy to product to delivery.
He will talk about capacity based portfolio planning and the way to implement the same. Based on the approach of Active Planning for Maximising Value, in Agile Portfolio Planning we frame the demand and supply question differently – rather than Desire Vs Capacity – We ask Desire Based on Capacity and hence maximizing value based on capacity. Desire comes from – Market, Executive, Product Managers based on vision and strategy of the organization prioritized in portfolio of items – capacity comes from teams (fixed) and programs (teams @ scale for governance) And Alignment between What We Want and What We can do is by answering that key question “Design Based on Capacity” and answering that question not one time but @ regular cadence.
Agile development methodologies are in the main stream. It is no longer for smaller and collocated project team. Large scale developments are also adopting this methodology more and more.
• Are we adding enough business value?
• Are our cycles optimized?
• Is ROI justified?
• Are we humanizing our product or services?
• Are we meeting the end user’s needs?
Are we just adopting a methodology that is perceived to be capable of solving these problems?
Most of us know that Agile is not a silver bullet. Various industry reports suggest that there are lot many challenged than successful projects. Even all successful projects do not provide enough business value and meet the end user’s needs. A value stream mapping clearly suggests that cycles are not optimized. Retrospective finds lot more “Things to improve” than “Cool things to continue”.
This talk is based on Biplab’s experience on analyzing Agile development methodology & it’s implementation in these dimensions for large-scale Agile projects. He will share what steps can be taken to bridge these gaps and fuel business with more values. He also will talk about how Design Thinking (DT) can humanize our product & services and enable us to meet the end user’s needs – thus ensuring ultimate value of product or services.
This workshop is about learning the timeline concept and also understanding how it can be used in Enterprise Agile transformations.It enables an individual to visualize all that he needs to reach his goal.
1. Timeline technique helps the stakeholders and teams to define realistic goals about their transformation.
2. This will also enable them to pre-write the future of the transformation.
