Target Audience

  Team Leads / Agile Coaches / Facilitators / “Scrum Masters”
  Quality / Compliance / Governance Processionals
  IT Managers / Sponsors / Leaders
  Lean-Agile Program/Project Managers (Release/Solution Train / Value Stream Engineers)
  Process Improvement Change Agents / Process Groups / Process Engineers



Lean and Agile comes in many flavours and is applied with varying degrees of rigor and formality at many different levels (team, project, program, value-stream, portfolio, enterprise).

A key challenge is how to maintain good governance, with appropriate oversight and risk coverage, to ensure that investments are well-directed and protected, but without impeding responsiveness or delaying customer value, thereby diminishing their overall value and effectiveness.

This hands-on workshop introduces and applies a number of simple but powerful tools to enable non-invasive governance in a heterogeneous and empowered lean-agile delivery organisation.

Benefits & Take-Aways

  Deploy clear and objective indicators of the status and health of any endeavour
  Ensure transparency of status irrespective of chosen methodology (waterfall, lean, agile, …)
  Define method-neutral quality gates for effective but non-intrusive lifecycle governance
  Enable local-empowerment and flexibility of lean-agile practices without losing transparency
  Objectively assess the coverage and adequacy of locally-tailored lean-agile ways-of-working
  Use self-assessments to enable teams to inspect and adapt lean-agile working practices
  Take-away ready-to-use enterprise and team health and status indicators and tools.

Workshop Content

  You will learn how you can apply an industry-standard framework (Essence) to:
     Establish the status of any Lean-Agile endeavour (Program/Project/Team)
     Deploy simple but comprehensive method-neutral quality checks and gates
     Rapidly assess any endeavour’s state of health (actual versus desired status)

  You will use essential practices to learn how you can:
     Empower teams to define their own locally-tailored lean-agile ways-of-working
     Enable full transparency of approach (all teams are “saying what they do”)

  You will apply lean-agile practice assessments to:
     Assess quality of practices (are teams “doing what they say”)
     Drive inspect-and-adapt improvement cycles at the team, cross-team and organisation level.
