Real-life Agile Scaling – slides from keynote @ Agile Tour Bangkok

Here are the slides from my keynote “Real-life agile scaling” at Agile Tour Bangkok. Enjoyed hanging out with everyone!

Key points:

  • Scaling hurts. Keep things as small as possible.
  • Agile is a means, not a goal. Don’t go Agile Jihad. Don’t dump old practices that work.
  • There is no “right” or “wrong” way. Just tradeoffs.
  • There is no one-size-fits-all. But plenty of good practices.
  • Build feedback loops at all levels. Gives you better products and a self-improving organization.

Here is an InfoQ article with a nice summary of the keynote.

Sample slides:

  1. I really like where this is going, and more importantly, where you have been leading us all towards for more than a decade Henrik! Thank you for openly sharing information that is spot on and simple to grasp. Awesome to get info from you that applies to any Agile scaling framework – and thanks for keeping everyone focused on outcomes, values, culture and developing solutions based on specific situations – rather than one size fits all tools, structures and procedures!
