Kevin, we worked together an awfully long time, back from the early days of Agile, at Nationwide. I remember, actually I Tweeted, because it was in the talk with a couple of gentlemen that were from Nationwide. They were talking about the DevOps roll out that they're doing and they had this sort of Sherpa chart. It's always great to see how far you guys have come from the early days. I was impressed by their talk. Unfortunately, I didn't get to your talk, but I hear you had some pretty interesting things in your talk around metrics, and measuring flow, and that sort of thing. Maybe we can chat about that? Kevin Fisher:  That's right, Bob. Bob

I know you've been working with BMW, so it's a pretty close call. This idea of looking at data visualization, flow metrics versus compartmentalized, "We've gotten 20 tickets done, but what sort of value have you captured?" I love the fact that you were mixing four different types of work so that you can visualize ‑‑ How are your investment strategies paying off? Are you investin

I was pulled out of medical school in 1983. For 15 years I was a research scientist, working with tools for Bell Labs. Learned how to write software for super‑computing, modeling the human cell. Really, all the basics of Scrum were formulated in that environment. When I was pulled out of the medical school by a big banking company they said, "Over

    BUSINESS AGILITY: Evan Leybourn, founder of the Business Agility Institute and Conference, has been screaming into the void about Business Agility, and the void is finally screaming back.  Evan is building a strong community around business agility across diverse industries, and plans to reclaim business agility from the consultants and marketing folks that keep using the buzzword. Evan sat down with Bob Payne of the Agile Toolkit podcast to discuss. How do you define Business Agility?  How do we de-buzzword it? Hearing so many stories, I came to the position that we don't want a definition.  In this formative stage of Business Agility around the world, whatever definition we put on it is going to limit its ability to be more things to more people, and right now I think that's more important. What we did is we actually put together a Model of Business Agility, about 60 of us working with the community on all the different domains and dimensions that make up Business Agility.  I think that is a better way of v

    Duración: 12min | 27/03/2018

    I sat down with Manjit Singh and Antonio Medina to talk about details of their new book The Lean Playbook. See more below and subscribe now.    Fresh off the release of their The Lean Playbook book. Most books were very theoretical and didn't show how to practically implement these techniques and tools, so what we did was collect a set of experiences from many teams in which we achieved some specific business outcomes. It's actionable. You can jump to a tool or challenge you're trying to address and that's what makes it a good reference book.  We aren't just focusing on IT - also Lean for Services (Pharma, government, finance, sales, and more). When people think about Lean, they think about IT and manufacturing, but the techniques can be applied in every industry.  Even though people want to apply Lean, the ask isn't always clearly defined. In the book, we look at it holistically and look at the delivery of value and how it flows through the systems. There are a lot of opportunities to reduce waste: Empower

    Duración: 10min | 27/03/2018

    I spoke with Business Agility Conference organizer Evan Leybourn on some of the inner workings and the future of the conference.    The people are the best part of the conference. 40% of attendees were from over seas and 95% of all attendees flew in just for this event - which is incredible! Truly a global audience.  We really approached our topics differently this year. It was designed specifically to have "ah-ha!" moments constantly where everyone tells us a story. We weren't looking for theory, we wanted them to tell us their "why," - to leave us inspired.  In the coming years, we really don't want to grow too big - 350-400 might be the max. Primarily because the intimacy of the conversations is important, but we want to go broader. We want small, focused events all of the world to give people opportunities and the chance to join the conversation.  4 Pillars in the Business Agility Institute: Community Outreach Guidance Leadership And LitheSpeed, as one of our first Institute Partners, has been doing and

    Facilitation For Decision Making
    Duración: 22min | 27/03/2018

    I sat down with Ellen Grove and Sue John to talk all things facilitation. See more below and subscribe now.      Facilitation essentially is holding people safely in a space to express themselves is critical. It isn't just about the fun thing - it isn't just about playing with Lego's. It's about the debrief and helping the participants reflect and think about "what did we just learn here." And that helps them to get better at reflecting. It let's them ask "how are we going to do this thing," and "how are we going to be better at doing that thing."  Lego Serious Play, and other similar techniques, allows everyone to get their ideas on the table and that's how you get people talking, collaborating, and making decisions as a team. It's easier to talk about this Lego on the table than that department is run poorly or I don't work well with that person.  Facilitation for Decision Making Exercise: Set up a meeting for the entire morning - We'll be exploring until maybe lunchtime THEN we see the impact Make a decis

    3 Tips to Succeed in Agile
    Duración: 23min | 27/02/2018

    People make agile seem pretty complicated when they first hear about it. There are clear successes when you implement agile if you are able to incorporate a few things. If you don't understand the underlying philosophies of scrum, you may have a harder time being successful. Listen with Bob and George Dinwiddie as they give advice and tips on how to organize your work, do it, and work as a team.    1. Organizing the work Goes hand in hand with the body of scrum.Have a clear goal, work in iterations, don't plan too far in advance. For some, that's enough, but it might not be enough by itself to deliver regularly and reliably. Here are some tips on organizing your work: Break the work down into chunks to complete in short iterations.   Measure progress by the end result's value, rather than the time spent on the work 2. Doing the work Teams already know the work that they're doing to some degree. Sometimes they aren't doing it well, sometimes they are.  Having deadlines might shine a light on some fundamenta

    I speak with Michael about the M word.  Yes Metrics and Agile teams have seemed to be at odds for a long time.  If you look at a large enough population of teams using many differing methods you can however glean information that is useful.  It turns out that on average Agile teams deliver on our goal of delivering higher quality software, predictably and without increasing costs.  There is a lot the data does not say about individual teams but this information is gold when approached by one of the remaining skeptics.

    I spoke with Emily and Geoff at the end of the conference and we were all a bit tired.  Emily performed in the Coding With The Stars stage at Agile 2008 and gave a great run for the gold.  One especially interesting segment was the customer story testing segment.  For this segment Geoff played the customer and wrote a story test in TextTest and then Emily and  Michael Feathers made it pass.  This appearance of the customer was well received by the audience and judges. Finally I get Geoff on a podcast.  I recorded him last year but he will jump the queue with this one.  Geoff works on a heuristic scheduling problem that is somewhat tricky to write acceptance and regression tests around.  To solve this problem he did wrote his own test framework, TextTest.I hope you enjoy this power duo and I suspect we will see more of them in the agile space.-bob

    Agile 2007 - David Chelimsky - Behavior Driven Development with RSpec
    Duración: 44min | 10/12/2007

    David Celimsky is one of the development powerhouses behind RSpec, one of the first frameworks for Ruby to implement the Behavior Driven Development process.

I can now put another face (not Dave Astels as I usually do) to RSpec David. David is great to talk to and I recommend accosting him at conferences to start up a conversation. Enjoy Bob Payne

    I recently attended the Gartner Mid-Size conference with Cyber Korp.  Cyber Korp provides Agile Development, Delivery and Transformations to organizations.  I helped them deliver a software project over two days of the conference using requirements that had been gathered from one of the IT executives at the conference.  In this episode I speak with several folks from Cyber Korp and Paul Smith of ATA Airlines about his experience participating in a Micro Agile Project.  Like so many of the Executives at the conference, Paul had not been exposed to Agile Development before the conference.  He was a great customer and dove right into the 3x5 cards over breakfast on the first day and was gracious enough to show up for two mini UAT sessions where he got to give feedback and create new stories for the backlog. Cyber had set up a Live Feed to their Agile Development Center in Chicago so that we could monitor progress and communicate with the development team there.  Please enjoy the podcast.  I had a great time chat

    Gary Pollice is a Professor of Practice, Computer Science at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He discusses his use of project simulation to bring "Real World Challenges" into an academic setting.
