In conversations about agility, we all have our biases. Some folks may tend to focus more on organisational and team structures, with discussions about autonomous teams with co-located, cross functional team-members. Others might focus more on practices ranging from User Stories to Test Driven Development. Several will focus on frameworks like Scrum or Kanban. All of these facilitate agility, each more focused on either people, product or process.
In this talk, Antony shares with you what agility means in his eyes in terms of people, product & process. See how these perspectives can help you understand the 'why' behind many of the things you do. Antony also examines how these three lenses can help you see limitations – and opportunities – that you might otherwise miss unless you explore:
• People agility: Are people in fixed, functional roles? Or, can you adapt quickly to take on the role most valuable to the team at that time?
• Product agility: Does it take weeks to release new capabilities in your products? Or, can you have an idea in the morning and have it in production by the afternoon?
• Process agility: Do your teams have mandated and rigid ways of doing things, needing approval to change the process? Or, can you choose what works from one moment to the next?
