Agile - The Next Level 'Value Engineering'

Canada Water Library

Hello Evangelists, I am proud to announce the next MeetUp with a very special guest: Tom Gilb! Event Description: Specific Technologies to really deliver an agile measurable value stream to your stakeholders. 1. Quantifying all critical stakeholder values, incl. all qualities. A Scale of measure for all critical variables. 2. Estimation and measurement of all architectures and strategies. The Value Table. 3. Decomposition of architecture and strategies into sprint-sized value deliveries. Principles and Methods. 4. Advanced sprint prioritization strategies: based on values, costs and risks: computed. 5. Dynamic Design to Cost: the agility to adjust architecture in order to deliver all values on time, under budget every time. Zero Failures. 6. Specification QC: how to measure conformance to best practices for requirements, contracts and architectures. These techniques are scale-free methods for dealing with large-scale and complex systems development. They apply to any type of systems. They are not a way to manage the ‘coding process’. They are a way to manage the delivery of real organizational value to real organisations such as government, industry, innovation, and finance. You will not become a Master in 2 days, but you will succeed in your projects when others fail. Right now our IT and agile failure rate is an international shame. Tom Gilb, the presenter is a pioneer of agile methods, in his books from 1976 (Software Metrics) and 1988 (Principles of Software Engineering Management). He has always been clear about the need to deliver value (not ‘working software’) . The current agile culture managed to grasp the concepts of small sprints, but has never understood value and systems. That is why ‘agile' is failing and losing credibility. Top management has begun to ask for value, not agile. Tom has 6 new (2018) books about ‘agile as it should be’. More details about Tom at www.gilb.com, @ImTomGilb 📅 Agenda of the event 6:30 Reception and networking 7:00 Talk 8:00 Networking 8:30 End ✅ SPECIAL RAFFLE AT THE END! - Free book worth £40!!! Tom Gilb: Competitive Engineering: A Handbook For Systems Engineering, Requirements Engineering, and Software Engineering Using Planguage ✅ As a Scrum Alliance endorsed User group you will earn 2 SEU's.

How can we get new products to become fast-growing scaleups? How do we reorganize ourselves for optimal execution and innovation? Most companies are expected to screw up and die within the next two decades. They will be replaced by a new generation of disruptive startups and scaleups except for the organizations that learn how to disrupt themselves. Starting new teams and scaling up innovation is more critical than ever. The key to success is applying different practices in different stages of the innovation lifecycle. What works for a new business does not work for a mature one, and vice versa. In this workshop, you will nosedive into the major good practices for business leaders and product teams, from the moment they have an innovative idea to the day they will scale it up (or screw it up). Everything depends on the lifecycle stage of the product or service. ✅ The Shiftup Business Agility & Innovation Leader is a two-day workshop that teaches the principles and common practices of Lean-Agile business innovation. It is a combination of facilitator-led instruction, peer discussion, and team exercises. The workshop helps attendees understand how innovation works across the lifecycle of a business, and it makes them aware of their role in the creation and delivery of innovative products and services in continuously changing environments. What You Will Learn In two days, you will see that the basic unit for innovation is the strategic business model. You will understand how each business model evolves from exploration and effectiveness to exploitation and efficiency. And you will learn how managers, leaders, designers, and developers need to organise their work differently to create an organization that can reinvent itself continuously and that can scale tremendously. ✅ The Shiftup Business Agility & Innovation Leader workshop teaches participants to apply Lean-Agile thinking to all aspects of business innovation. That’s why attendees automatically qualify to become an ICAgile Certified Professional in Business Agility Foundations (ICP-BAF, under consideration). Audience Coaches, consultants, team managers, business leaders, product designers, product developers, product managers, project managers, human resource managers This is a foundational workshop, meaning that no knowledge or certifications of lean thinking, business agility or innovation are required. This is not an expert-level course. However, having some experience with new product development and business management (in any role) will make attendance easier. All the best, your organiser Michelangelo
