08/27/2014 MEETING OF AGILE BOSTON: FRANK SAUCIER ON: CHASING PREDICTABILITY
WEDNESDAY AUGUST 27 in BURLINGTON MA:
FRANK SAUCIER on: CHASING PREDICTABILITY
Chasing Predictability with Scrum, Kanban, and Lean
Predictability is a powerful force. It can trump ambiguity. It can wrestle with inefficiency. It can emerge large quantities of learning. How? By looking at things through a predictability lens, we can actually help ourselves start to see the complexity of the systems in which we do work. When we start to see the complexity, we become much more effective at being able to do work within the system and at tuning the system.
Join us as Agile Coach Frank Saucier from FreeStanding Agility will show us how to use the mindset of predictability to look at how we receive work, how we do work, and how we deliver work. He will highlight how practices like Scrum, Kanban, and Lean all have their own approaches to chasing predictability.
At this session you'll learn:
How Scrum, Kanban, and Lean chase predictability
Where teams struggle with predictability
How to use the belief-behavior cycle to chase predictability
Why seeking the system is more important than designing the system
How making work visible accelerates predictability
What can we do tomorrow to chase predictability
