December User Group Meeting - Agile Impediments


Impediments to Agile Adoption - Open Space Session.


Hi All,

December's session as voted for by you, is all about impediments to agile adoption. We'll be running an Open Space session which allows for multiple subjects to be discussed.

This is an opportunity for everyone to bring their current agile adoption problems to the forum to discuss how others have overcome those obstacles and help create actionable activities to resolve/remove those impediments.

Look forward to seeing you next month.

    Nice to see everyone and talk Agile. Not sure the format really worked that well.

    Good group of people, although we could have probably made better use of them ;) Hopefully gave something back to somebody as well.

    I'm really sorry Steve but I am going to be stuck in London until 5pm which will make it impossible for me to get my car and get to you.

    TFS 2013 has the concept of portfolio management above User Stories with Features or MMFs and Streams so that you can collect the User Stories for better reporting. Ripple Rock have a tool to roll up the Story Points and deliver ROI to Management - Steve might know more on this.

    This sounds like a very good idea for a session. I'll chip in a few likely ones:

    * Fitting agile into other business processes that are geared to the longer life-cycle of a waterfall model. i.e. Marketing, Project Management, Sales, Operations. If the push for agile is coming from Development then how to handle the effect on these other teams?

    * Identifying and empowering the Product Owner. If this role is key to success how to select this person and define their responsibilities, likely removing some control from some stakeholders?

    Hi All,
    The session on Agile Impediments will be an 'Open Session' i.e. the content of the session is provided by everyone attending. So, get thinking about what you'd like to discuss in the session. What impediments to implementing agile are you are facing and would like to discuss. If you post your impediments here, others can prepare thoughts from their experience on how to resolve them. This session will be all about sharing knowledge and experience and you'll be voting with your feet on what you'd like to talk about. Look forward to catching up in a couple of weeks,
