Visualizing Lecture

Visualising System Archetypes – visualization and systems thinking

Many organizational challenges are a result of systemic issues, where cause and effect are not directly connected, but are separated by time and involve feedback loops and delays. Given that Kanban is a method for designing a software and systems development system, and systems thinking includes the idea of system archetypes that describe common patterns of behavior, we can use system archetypes to guide our visualizations and help us identify opportunities for improvement. This session will introduce how to understand system archetypes, describe a number of common and relevant archetypes, and discuss patterns that can visualize and thus help break those archetypes

ITG Case Study

Session Abstract:

Investment Technology Group (ITG) is the advanced stages of implementing an enterprise-wide Agile migration program, and wants to be able to monitor our implementation, both for the teams’ own benefit and for enterprise-wide governance of the migration.

As early as 2002, ITG has piloted the use of Agile for software projects. About two years ago, ITG decided to migrate all of its software development operation to a standard Agile process baseline, based on a mix of XP, Scrum and Lean practices. As part this migration, teams are starting to use Rally’s Agile Lifecycle Management platform. Having a critical mass of projects in Rally. We have started collecting from Rally a set of metrics which provides executives a quantitative insight into the progression of our agile implementation, and can be used by teams to continuously improve as part of their retrospection process. ITG has implemented a fairly comprehensive set of metrics, and plans to implement more based on teams input. These metrics are fairly generic in nature and can probably be useful to others as well.

Lecturer’s short Bio:

Sagi Smolarski is a Director, Software Development at Investment Technology group, leads the global initiative to implement agile and is part of the team creates ITG’s next generation enterprise infrastructure.

Sagi has been leading projects and development teams, and has previously headed the development of ITG’s flagship Execution Management system – Triton, developed by ITG’s first team to implement an Agile process (XP).

Informatica B2B Case Study Lecture in Agile Israel

How we do Agile without saying the word ‘Scrum’

During the last 9 months, Informatica’s B2B business unit transitioned to an agile product definition and development mode. Specifically, we selected Kanban as an agile development methodology. In this talk, I will cover our lessons from using Kanban for enterprise software product development, including:

The impact of a cross-geography organization.
Kanban board structure and changes to the board as a learning process.
The use of data that is collected from the board.
Why we decided to introduce the notion of iterations to our Kanban implementation.

Software Craftsmanship

Practicing Agile at the process level yields a great performance boost to development teams. In order to be able to persist a fast going pace, it is imperative to craft the code in a way that will support Agile. Embracing change in the process level without supporting it in the code level could bring a project to a total disaster.
