Custom-tailored Agility with the Agile Fluency™ Model

How do you know your agile frameworks and methods are working? What is the benefit to your organization? Agile and Business Agility are being sold as silver bullets. Leaders are complaining they are not getting the promised benefits. The Agile Fluency Model, a trademark of James Shore and Diana Larsen, helps you get the most out of your agile ideas. George Box famously said: "all models are wrong but some are useful." Agile Fluency Model happens to be useful. Through the Agile Fluency Model, you can identify zones that are fit for your purpose; understand which benefits to expect from your agile teams; which investments must be made to achieve those benefits; and where to look when your teams don’t deliver the benefits your business needs.

Custom-tailored Agility with the Agile Fluency™ Model

  1. 1. March 19, 2019 AHMED AVAIS Agile Leadership Network - Raleigh/Durham Area Chapter Agile Fluency™ is a trademark of Diana Larsen and James Shore Custom-tailored Agility with the Agile Fluency™ Model @ahmedavais @AGILEFLUENCY
  2. 2. Ahmed Avais – Agile Coach • Agile journey began through Lean Startups community in 2009 • Engineering/technical background • What’s my Agile DNA: – Scrum (CSP-SM, CSP-PO) – Human Systems Dynamics Professional – Harada Method Coach – Agile Fluency™ • Trainer for Agile Fluency Game • Agile Fluency Diagnostic Facilitator – Kanban – Agile Games – Pattern Languages of Programs @ahmedavais
  3. 3. Why Custom Tailor? • Does your company make software as its central business? – If Yes, any of the four fluency destinations may be appropriate for your company. – If No, it’s likely that a Focusing or Delivering zone is appropriate for your company. • Which Agile Fluency Zone do you aspire to? – Individual contributors work in collaborative teams. – Your technical teams consistently deliver business value on the market cadence. – Cross-functional teams contain all the skillsets and domain knowledge needed. – Your teams contribute to the greater good of the organization beyond team product focus. • How much time are you willing to invest in an agile transformation? – Four to eight months – Six months to two years – One to five years @ahmedavais
  4. 4. What is Fluency? Routine, smooth, skillful ease What you do automatically without thinking Praxis: noun Practical application of a theory Return from an investment in learning
  5. 5. What is your metaphor for fluency? • Learning to ride a bicycle (goal/needs determine practices) – Riding to commute? – Riding for leisure? – BMX / Extreme Sports? – Tour de France? • Writing a poem in another language • What else? @ahmedavais
  6. 6. Why do agile teams plateau? @ahmedavais Copyright 2015-2019, The Agile Fluency Project
  7. 7. Dangers of going on auto-pilot @ahmedavais 20 years of experience “acceptable performance” 5 years of experience According to Professor Anders’ research those who felt their skills were good enough were no better than those with significantly fewer years of experience. In fact, they’re likely worse!
  8. 8. Deliberate Practice • Develops skills for which effective training techniques exist • Builds on previously acquired skills • Depends on clear, immediate feedback • Involves well-defined targets and specific aspects of performance • Requires full concentration (and makes you tired) • Stretches the learner’s comfort zone (so not always fun) @ahmedavais
  10. 10. Pattern for Deliberate Practice @ahmedavais
  11. 11. EXPECTED BENEFITS Transparency Core Metric: At least once per month, the team shows what it’s working on and how it’s progressing from a business value perspective. Reduce Risk: Management knows when the team is building the wrong thing, or isn’t making progress, and has the ability to positively intervene. Achievement Increase Productivity: The team regularly reflects upon, tunes, and adjusts its work habits to provide more value. Increase ROI: The team focuses their work on the priority that they are told is most important to the business. Increase ROI: The team makes incremental progress on business priorities every month. Alignment Increase Productivity: Collaborative communication reduces misunderstandings and hand-off delays among team members. @ahmedavais
