Scrum and XP – Beyond the trenches

Posted on by

Here are the slides from my presentation "Scrum and XP – Beyond the trenches" at JFokus. Thanks for coming!

To those of you that weren’t at the presentation, the purpose of the presentation was:

  • Many of the solutions in ”Scrum and XP from the Trenches” turned out to be pretty much universally applicable
  • However, I’ve learned a lot since 2006 and there some things that I would have done differently if I could go back in time.
  • Purpose of this presentation is to share these insights with you.

I came up with 15 concrete recommendations that I believed would be very widely applicable. Based on the polls that we did during this presentation, the hypothesis seemed correct! Every single recommendation got 90-100% Green votes from the audience. Or maybe you were just trying to be nice… Well, anyway, thanks for your feedback!

What to do when Scrum doesn’t work

Posted on by

Here are the slides from my keynote at the Scrum Gathering in Cape Town.

Positive atmosphere and lots of laughs, really enjoyed the audience! The whole topic felt a bit like poking a stick at a hornet’s nest, but it looks like I got away with it, at least so far :o)

Kanban and Scrum – making the most of both

Posted on by

Here are the slides for my session Kanban and Scrum – making the most of both at Agile 2010, Orlando. Thanks for participating!

Translations:

For those who didn’t get a hold of the handouts, here is the Kanban Kick-Start Example and the Scrum Checklist.

I was a bit worried that the participants would be tired & unengaged since this was the last session of a week long conference. But I threw in some exercises and jokes to liven things up and was happy to see that everyone seemed highly engaged througout the whole session! The course feedback forms confirm this – the average rating of the session was 5.0 out of 5! Every one of the 85 feedback forms said 5. How to improve from here? :o)

Sorry for those of you who couldn’t get in (the room filled up quickly). These links may be of interest to you:

The Essence of Agile

Posted on by

Here are the slides from my keynote "The Essence of Agile" at Agile Spain 2010, Madrid. Basically a whole week’s course compressed into a one hour lecture, worked out even better than I had hoped :o)

Impressed by the turnup, 300 people is good for being the first agile conference in Spain!

What is all this stuff?

Agile – ett verktyg, inte ett mål

Posted on by

Here are the slides from my breakfast seminar "Agile – ett verktyg inte ett mål" (= "Agile – a tool, not a goal"), hosted by DSDM Consortium. The presentation was in Swedish but the slides are in English.

This is more or less the same presentation as my keynote at Integration Agile 2009 conference in Holland.

Kanban and Scrum – a practical guide

Posted on by

Here the the slides from my presentation "Kanban and Scrum – a practical guide" from QCon in San Francisco today. The presentation is mostly pictures. If you are curious about what I was saying, check out the free online book “Kanban and Scrum – making the most of both”.

Great feedback! 77 green notes, 7 yellow, 0 red. Someone even wrote "there should have been a greener one!" Always fun with an enthusiastic audience, thanks everyone :o)

Kanban board

Take-away points:

  • Know your goal
    • Hint: Agile/Lean/Kanban/Scrum isn’t it.
  • Never blame the tool
    • Tools don’t fail or succeed. People do.
    • There is no such thing as a good or bad tool. Only good or bad decisions about when, where, how, and why to use which tool.
  • Don’t limit yourself to one tool
    • Learn as many as possible.
    • Compare for understanding, not judgement.
  • Experiment & enjoy the ride
    • Don’t worry about getting it right from start; you won’t.
    • The only real failure is the failure to learn from failure.

Here is some of my other stuff that was referenced during the presentation:

What is Agile (Agile Tour keynote)

Here are the slides from my "What is Agile" keynote at Agile Tour 2009 in Grenoble.

Sample slide:

Don't be dogmatic

Take-away points:

  • Agile is a set of values & principles that help you succeed with software development
    • Agile is not binary
    • Agile is not about specific methods or practices
    • Agile is not a goal
    • Agile is not complete
    • Agile is not a silver bullet
  • Read the Agile Manifesto:

Scrum intro

Posted on by

Here are the slides for my 90 minute session "Introduction to Scrum" at Agile 2009 in Chicago in a couple of weeks.

The slide deck is mostly pictures and intended primarily for presentation use, not reading. So this stuff will probably make most sense if you attend the session.

The Thinking Tool called Agile

Here are the slides from my keynote at Integrating Agile 2009, Amsterdam.

First three slides are below, the rest are in the PDF document.

What is all this stuff?

How do they relate

The old tool was better

Take-away points:

  • Know your goal
  • Agile is a tool, not a goal
    • Tools don’t fail or succeed. People do.
    • There is no such thing as a good or bad tool. Only good or bad decisions about when, where, how, and why to use which tool.
  • Don’t limit yourself to one tool
    • Learn as many tools as possible.
    • Compare for understanding, not judgement.
    • Focus on Why, not How.
  • Experiment & enjoy the ride
    • Don’t worry about getting it right from start. You won’t.
    • The important thing is not where you are, but where you are going.
    • The only real failure is the failure to learn from failure.
      (but you can learn from that too…)

Kanban vs Scrum – slides

Posted on by

Here are the slides for my presentation Kanban vs Scrum.

I’m glad people enjoyed it! The participants were asked to rate how valuable the presentation was on a scale 1-3. The average rating was 3.0 at Deep Lean and 2.9 at Future of Agile :o)

Kanban

This presentation is based on my Kanban vs Scrum article, I basically took the whole article and translated into animated pictures.

Update (2009-11-07):
Here’s a Japanese version of the slides, thanks to Hiroki Kondo. Domo-arigatoo!

Trust me – promises and lies in agile projects

Posted on by

Yesterday I was at the "Agile i Sverige" conference in Stockholm and did a keynote called "Lita på mig – löften och lögner i agila project". In English that would be "Trust me – promises and lies in agile projects".

Here are the slides. The slides are in Swedish (although I ended up doing the talk in English).

I think this topic is interesting and important so I do plan to write some kind of article or summary in english – but no promises :o)

Here’s the abstract in English, just to spark your curiousity:

The agile manifesto says "Customer collaboration over contract negotiation" – but customer collaboration is based on trust. Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between promises, estimates, and lies. We will go through some frightening examples and discuss trust in agile projects.

Introduction to Lean Software Development

Posted on by

Here are the slides from my presentation "Vadå Lean Software Development" (Introduction to Lean Software Development) at HiQ on Oct 13.
Lean Agile Scrum XP
Note – the picture above (the last slide in my deck) can easily be misinterpreted when used out of context. It is not meant to imply that XP is a subset of Scrum, or that Agile is a subset of Lean. It just means that Lean addresses a very wide scope – principals like "limit work to capacity" and "continuous process improvement" are applicable in just about any context. While XP is more concrete and limited to the domain of software development. Scrum is somewhere in between – it is not limited to software development, but still mandates the use of timeboxed deliveries (sprints) and a product backlog. Agile is higher level – just a bunch of values and principles and no practices at all. Etc.

There are lots of ways of visualizing this. My picture is simplistic, if anyone can come up with a better one let me know.

What’s hard about being an agile developer?

Posted on by

"Simple" is a word often used in agile software development. Terms like YAGNI and "do the simplest thing that can possibly work". It is easy to forget, however, that Simple is often Hard! So what’s hard about becoming an agile software developer, where are the bumps in the ride?

In this talk I went through some aspects of agile software development that many developers find to be hard, or even unpleasant initially.

Here are the slides. The session took place Oct 1 at JAOO 2008 in Aarhus, Denmark.

I passed two microphones around and had the audience act out Ola the Optimist and Pete the Pessimist whenever their quotes popped up. It was like a live commentary of the presentation from two different perspectives. Great fun :o)

Here are the slides from my session "10 ways to screw up with Scrum and XP", from the JavaForum conference in Malmö.

I’ve done this session at other conferences, but updated the slides a little bit each time. Interesting that so many people like to hear about how to get it all wrong :o)
