Stephanie Cully: Leading Teams Through Agile Adoption, and Mindset Transformation

Stephanie shares a story about helping a team to move from a waterfall to an agile framework. Despite initial resistance to abandoning familiar practices, she guided the team through the change by clarifying the goals of agile processes and introducing tools like the velocity chart in JIRA to help teams understand how some of the older concepts (tracking progress) could be achieved with the Agile approach.

Her approach focused on understanding the purpose behind practices, encouraging continuous conversation, and providing direct feedback. By repeatedly explaining the benefits and purposes of Scrum practices, Stephanie helped the team grasp the value of agile methods, leading to a more effective and adaptive development process.

Johannes Andersen: The Critical Role of the Leap of Faith in Organizational Change Programs

In this episode, Johannes discusses leading a small business unit through a change process to improve project flow and efficiency. Initially working in silos, the team aimed to reorganize around customer-focused products. Despite considering an outside-in model, they chose an inside-out approach for practicality. An off-site session helped visualize the workflow under the new structure, but progress in the change was slow due to overplanning. Johannes learned that successful change requires adaptability and a leap of faith, emphasizing the importance of navigating between complicated and complex models as reality shifts.

In this episode, we talk about the importance of being able to differentiate between complex and complicated types of work and change.

Viktor Didenchuk: Behind the Scenes, Helping A Company Pivot From Enterprise To SaaS, And How To Help Agile Teams Change

In this episode, Viktor discusses the transition of his company’s focus from an enterprise-centric product to a SaaS offering. The main challenge was establishing an incident management process for the new product. The team sought inspiration from industry giants like Google and Netflix, creating a rulebook and testing the process in real-time. They used OKRs for regular review, gradually involving more staff. Stress factors for users were identified and addressed, including establishing a dedicated Slack channel. A critical hurdle was motivating people to participate, recognizing that incentives vary across individuals. The solution included designing benefits for those managing incidents, acknowledging that the role isn’t suited for everyone.
