Patterns in Organizational Agility


Companies engaging in an Agile transformation rarely start at the right place. They focus primarily on creating Scrum teams from existing teams within their traditional organization top-down structure with training, certifications and coaching, while ignoring key elements like team size, prioritization and the ability to deliver rapidly.

Real transformation starts with Leadership, and the first task of Leadership is to address the Eco-system that surrounds the Scrum teams, so they can thrive and accelerate as Scrum intends them to.

In this first of a series of talks, we will focus on patterns that help organizations create small and stable teams aligned to a common purpose, prioritize initiatives, deliver value frequently and refactor when needed.

Those attending this talk will learn specifically about:

1. The Interrupt Pattern
2. Yesterday's Weather Pattern
3. Teams that Finish Early Accelerate Faster Pattern
4. When to Pair & When to Swarm
5. Team Metrics - including how to calculate with Jira!
6. Team Self-Selection Pattern
