Agile at the Corporates
Do you work at a corporate organisation and think it is impossible to follow an agile method? Are you an agile vendor that needs to work with corporates and struggle to get your head around it? In the rest of the world for a number of years the challenge has been how to roll out Agile to enterprises. How are we doing here in the fairest Cape?
This talk focusses on the challenges and rewards of implementing agile in the corporate space. Find out what works, what doesn’t, what to consider when choosing a method and how to engage with your corporate clients as a vendor. And learn about the surprising similarity between contract agile and agile in the corporates.
“Our product owner never comments on anything till it goes into production!”
“We make our own decisions since we can never get hold of a business person!”
“Things on this project are simply not flowing!”
“We can’t get the business to sign things off!”
Sound familiar? Even more frustrating when as the BA you are doing all the right things from a technical point of view, you are communicating clearly and openly and you really want to make the project a success.
Maybe the answer is that as human beings we need to be engaged with 3 aspects of our being : our heads, our hands and our hearts as well. When we engage with one another we need to agree on more than scope and plans. We need to contract psychologically.
This talk explores how to contract as a whole human being, with a whole human being. We will explore the dimensions of a human or social contract, how to have the discussion, which questions to ask and what to do to make sure everyone sticks to their end of the bargain. Whether you are a consulting BA or a permanent employee, you will learn why conscious contracting is vital for the success of any engagement.
