Innovation and Collaboration in High Performing Agile Teams


Waterloo (London) rocked with innovative agility earlier this week (on Mar 28, 2013) with the Agile Evangelists. Thank you very much to the audience for collaborating in the ideas and engaging in the innovative thoughts.
My personal favourite idea of the night about using a real burnt chart instead of a burn-chart (burn-up or burn-down) was very well received and tweeted. The intention of this activity to highlight and improve communication between business and software delivery teams with real information radiation.

We will be scheduling a follow-up webinar within April for the wider global audience. Stay tuned at the meetup site http://www.meetup.com/Agile-Evangelists/

Executive Summary:
The survival tactic in these challenging times demands a culturally diverse and regular intersection of teams at various levels. One of the symptoms of continuous lamenting by the delivery team is rooted in its inability to impact the programme, portfolio and longer term vision within the organization. A critical root cause is the lack of ability to collaboratively manage changing priorities. Business and solutions delivery organizations are always busy in fire fighting the much required accelerated time to market and don’t get the opportunity to synch up.

During the talk, we explored some initiatives for getting the team together at multiple levels iteratively, incrementally and best of all – collaboratively. It is a culture change for better flow - a paradigm shift from traditional practices to the new continuous innovation and disciplined execution mind-set.
Slides are available at:

We explored cutting edge methods for high performing teams with case studies from recent agile and lean transformation engagements with fortune 100 organizations and startups. Some of the benefits of this technique are enhanced ability to manage changing priorities, collaborative portfolio and programme definition and reduced risk.
