  1. How We Use Blocker Clustering to Improve

    As Klaus Leopold and Troy Magennis showed at Lean Kanban Central Europe last year, blockers can be treasures of improvement. This session is an experience report about how teams at Asynchrony — from software delivery to operations — used Leopold’s technique to quantify and identify opportunities for improvement, mitigate risk and improve planning. The session reviews the steps we took, outcomes that we realized and lessons we learned in the process.

    Learning outcomes
    - How to introduce blocker clustering to teams who have no idea what it is
    - How to provide lightweight coaching to teams looking to use blocker…

    • Scaling Scrum - What Big Players can Learn from Startups

      When big players start introducing agile & lean, this is often seen as an software development issue. The huge potential to adapt an organisation to gain speed, efficiency, flexibility and fun is left unused for all sorts of reasons. Time to consider a different approach to scale Scrum – decouple your organisation instead of introducing complexity.

      • @Hotels.com: Is Going Fast Enough? Balancing Technology, Process, and People

        Getting new product features released to users is often a painful, risky, and time-consuming process.

        This talk walks through the evolution of processes and technical practices at Hotels.com that achieved rapid, incremental delivery of high quality, valuable new functionality to users. Automation of build, deployment and testing process, fundamentally improved collaboration between product management, developers, test engineers, tech operations enabled a world where software can be released to users in a matter of hours; sometimes even minutes.

        The first half of the talk will focus on analysing the technology and process changes that led to Hotels.com being able to go…

        • Marketingscrum; bring the entrepreneur back in the enterprise

          As we know, Scrum is a good framework for IT / software development projects to learn, adapt to change and deliver great software of value, faster. We have even seen it being used in a manufacturing context (wikispeed).
          In this paper you will read about scrum being used in another department in the enterprise; marketing. You will see similar principles can be just as applicable if the product is not software. There are differences but there are also a lot of similarities. We (Xebia) have successfully implemented Scrum in the marketing departments of two large companies: The Dutch AAA and…

          • The Kanban Iceberg: How to go below the surface of a shallow implementation

            For many teams, kanban is an iceberg: They see only the single practice of visualization, but the mass of the system is below the surface in the form of the other practices, principles and values. This experience report details the journey that one company took to break the barrier of a wide but shallow kanban implementation at scale to realize benefits like improved delivery outcomes and greater employee satisfaction. Beginning with depth-of-kanban assessments and through a series of experiments, like the emergence of a new role — the flow manager — and standard work, teams deepened their understanding of the…
