Transformation Hacks – Setting up an agile culture in a non-agile environment
Nicole Röttger & Tal Uscher, Apiarista GmbH
Agile culture is part of most tech companies and IT departments. But if you leave the tech world it looks different: C-Levels talking about agility but working top-down, departments that do not even understand basic agile terms and how to use simple agile practices, or organizations that still haven’t started their agile journey. How do we initiate an agile culture in such an environment? How do we deal with such organizations as an agile team? With examples of our projects in the German public administration and former non-agile organizations, we’ll show you different transformation hacks, and how you can set up an agile culture in a non-agile environment.
Building a new software product and deploying it in Cloud is a highly innovative and creative process. Things simply don’t go to plan all the time, setbacks and failures are inevitable along the way. What makes a difference is how a team deals with them.
Each failure is an opportunity to reassess, make a change and try a different approach. In order to succeed, DevOps + security Assurance teams must become resilient to failure and focus on the learning outcomes that they present. As a DevSecOps lead, you need to encourage initiatives and via the right questions assist the team in taking the best possible decision based on what they know. Let them be the first to experience the initiative journey so that they learn from any possible failures that might be on that path. If you know the way do not push it to the team.
Companies might proudly display their core values, but do they model them when chaos strikes? Hear how a company with a mission to center people in product development thrived during a global pandemic. Building policies and practices that reinforce a company’s core values facilitates project and client success, while maintaining team morale and engagement. Learn tips for communication, collaboration, ethics, inclusivity, accessibility, and humanity that will help your team thrive.
Organization as Discovery – How Practice Theory Opens New Ways of Organizing
Marc Burgauer, Contextualise Ltd
Bruno Latour, a leading thinker in practice-based approaches, recently stated that COVID and the challenges with Climate Change require us to change how we describe the world. Whereas science traditionally aimed to find universal truths by removing context, which lead to classical empiricism based on the reductionistic approach, Latour postulates that our problems are the result of such reductionistic understanding of the world and that the insights we must now gain require an interconnected view which is based in and in respect of context. I.e. context-free approaches are no longer suitable to understand and sustainably change how we act. Or as Alicia Juarrero says: context changes everything.
For those of us who have been working within organizations by following Agile, Lean, and related approaches, the importance of context is not new. We have learned that there are no “one-size-fits-all” approaches. Methods themselves routinely prove too rigid and successful transformations appear often to come down to the ability of those leading the transformation to contextualize such methods. However, discovering how a particular organization is different, even unique, can be a time-consuming process.
While Wardley Mapping established a compelling way to get situational awareness at the strategic level, even the best strategies fail when organizations do not recognize and develop the capabilities required to meet their strategy. A capability is the ability of a team or collection of teams to deliver an outcome repeatedly. Capabilities are composed of the actual day-to-day practices that people and teams do to deliver the outcome. Therefore, to improve a capability, one needs to improve the underlying practices.
Practice Theory provides a socio-technical lens to describe and think about organization (both in the form of social organizations, as well as the action of organizing) that differs substantially from other approaches. Whereas other approaches focus on structural elements (teams, value streams, departments, etc., but also ceremonies and artifacts) and the behavior of individuals, i.e. the being of social entities, practice theory focuses on their doings. Interactions and the interconnectedness come to the foreground when we choose practice as the primary unit of analysis, allowing us to share our context more deeply when we want to understand how work happens, especially across boundaries, and therefore enables a more participative and hence faster way to sustainable change.
DevOps transformation – the good, the bad and the ugly
Todor Todorov, DELL Technologies
DevOps has become the de facto standard of our industry. But what does it mean to do it? What does it mean for you as a developer, as a team leader, as a product owner? In the past 4 years, I have been leading the DevOps transformation across many teams. I have modeled processes, built tools, led discussions, sessions, and workshops. I have pushed and been pushed in different directions. I have seen it all. I want to share that experience with you. I want to share the biggest challenges we’ve faced, what personas I encountered in the process, and how I dealt with them. I want to show you that it’s not all sweets and roses, but it’s also definitely not suicide or a dead end. I will try to summarize my list of things you need to keep in mind in order to be successful in that journey. I will share what we did wrong and what we did right, where it hurts and where it shines. DevOps is cool and cruel at the same time. This is what makes it so fun and also, what makes it work.
