BizDevOps – Necessity or Just Nice?

We all agree that BizDevOps (or Agile Technical) practices is something we would love to follow in the products we build. The questions we are addressing in this talk are, are BizDevOps practices just good to have or is it a must? If it’s a “must “, do our teams understand the urgency to change their thought process? As leaders are we motivating them enough and enabling the right environment to help embrace it?

This talk is for the leadership to help them understand the need to embrace Agile technical practices and not just follow it.

Agile – A Virtue or Vice?

We generally embark on already taken road with the belief that it would yield benefits, it would be quicker and would present very little unknowns. But does that really hold true for everything? I would like to share my thoughts around whether Agile implementation is really a Virtue or Vice? I believe that beauty lies in the manner/quality of execution of any said process or engineering practice versus blind adoption of the same. I would like to share the challenges and roadblocks that can potentially turn a Virtue into Vice!

Its Organizational, Not Individual Intelligence that Matters!

Organizations can create structures to organize and manage better. But soon these structures become smaller organizations within themselves and compete. This doesn’t stop at sub-organization (like Business units) level but becomes culture and each layer behaves the same. Each layer works for it’s existence and survival. Imagine what happens to organization where every entity is locally focused and forms its own culture code! So the question is how to get out of this power centered culture? How to create true Business Agility enabling culture in organizations? Deepti Jain tells us how in this is session.

Less is More!

Faster time-to-market, better quality and higher efficiency – Organizations have been moving towards Agile predominantly because they realized that delivering features of the highest value can lead to bigger and better successes. But then the ground reality said something else. The success rates were not as high as one would have desired! What could be the reason?

This session by Arun Jayaraman will shed light upon some practices that ensure that you improve your product success rates significantly without impacting your existing capacity and bandwidth.
