My topics in Dallas are:
Communities of Practice for Enterprise Agility
Organizations that have various entities building a multitude of solutions across the enterprise may end up with a number of Agile implementations. Autonomy is important for each entity, however, optimizing as a whole is essential for growing Agile maturity throughout. Having a centralized, enterprise Agile Community of Practice where all Agile Leaders have a place to learn, discuss and evolve creates harmonious growth that is independent of product solutions and technologies used. Kimberly Davis, ASRC Federal’s Agile Solutions Architect, will discuss how their model for a light-weight Agile Community of Practice expedites Agile maturity throughout, including basic Scrum adoption to Scaled Agile with DevSecOps implementation across their enterprise.
Value Stream Mapping for Business Agility
Agile is a mindset based off a set of core values and principles which strive for delivering incremental value delivery to consumers. While it was first derived for modernizing software development practices, those values and principles can be applied throughout an organization and any type of organization – not just one that produces software. All businesses are producing something valuable to market, so the concepts of Agility are universal. Kimberly Davis, ASRC Federal’s Agile Solutions Architect, will discuss how using Value Stream Mapping will identify areas where application of Agile principles are needed to increase throughput of value to the market. The Value Stream Mapping process helps organizations understand all the steps needed to create deliverable value and where Agility can increase speed to market.
