    Too Much WIP? Destroy Your Backlog

    Too Much WIP? Destroy Your Backlog

    The struggle to limit work in progress is not a new one. It’s a constant balance between our desire to get more done and avoiding employee burnout. It happens at all levels of the organization. Often strategic initiatives stem from a good place - leadership wants to do the right thing – but, as our guest Eric Willeke puts it, “A single piece of strategic WIP equals hundreds to thousands of pieces of individual WIP.”
    As the Founder and a Principal at Elevate.to, he knows how hard it is to be an effective leader who limits his WIP. As a consultant and someone who cares about humanity, he wants to relieve the strain and stress that people suffer from as a result of their work.
    Willeke offers three strategies for reducing WIP across an organization and three tactics for getting started. You’ll love the first tactic: “Destroy your backlog.”

    Defining the Product-Focused Model

    Defining the Product-Focused Model

    Ross Clanton has built his career reshaping architecture and technology strategies for Fortune 50 companies, driving leadership and culture changes necessary to empower transformation. 
    Clanton discusses his recently published report, The Project to Product Transformation, and some of the lessons he’s learned from enterprise transformations. He goes into detail on the three stages of enterprises (incubate, scale, and optimize), the 4 leadership constraints many organizations commonly deal with, as well as the concept of Dojos that he helped start in his time at Target.

    Modernization Case Study at CSG

    Modernization Case Study at CSG

    Scott Prugh is Chief Architect & SVP of Software Development at CSG. He recounts the story of the technical evolution at his organization and the multi-year strides to modernize their application stack as well as mainframe technology.  
    “One of the things we found was that when you start taking these crazy, really heavy platforms and you start to modernize them, it starts to free up capacity.”

    The US Government is not a Unicorn

    The US Government is not a Unicorn

    The US government is notorious for being a slow-moving bureaucracy that is crazy about controlling every minor detail. Internally, there are often musings that agile will never work within the public sector because the government is a unicorn incompatible with agile principles and values.
    But if you get down to it, the government struggles with many of the same issues that private corporations do. This includes things like obtaining leadership buy-in, acquiring funding in a big batch project mindset, maintaining low WIP. Sound familiar?
    Ron MacKenzie, an agile coach for the USDA, talks to us about his own journey to agile, how he’s brought his own personal learnings to his teams and leadership and how, ultimately, the government is not that different after all.

    Testing Business Ideas with David Bland

    Testing Business Ideas with David Bland

    David J. Bland is a co-author of the newly published “Testing Business Ideas,” and founder of Precoil where he helps companies find product-market fit using lean startup, design thinking and business model innovation practices.  
    Bland walks us through the book which is a field guide for rapid experimentation in order to reduce risk and increase the likelihood of success for any new venture or business project. In addition to experimentation, the publication also tackles team design from three different angles: 
    Configuration of cross-functional teams 
    Team behaviors such as questioning assumptions and entrepreneurial spirit 
    Environment the leaders need to provide for teams to live within 
    Bland also makes his prediction for where the separate disciplines of Agile, Lean Startup, Design Thinking, Business Model, Lean UX and others: “This is all part of a system and we need to figure out how it all relates instead of adopting it all in isolation within an org. I still think systems thinking is eventually going to come back in a more consumable way.”

    Why Do Efforts to Change Organizations Often Fail?

    Why Do Efforts to Change Organizations Often Fail?

    Mik Kersten, author of “Projects to Products” and CEO of Tasktop, has seen a reoccurring theme. We go to conferences; we hear about all these fantastic things that can happen when we incorporate lean practices, continuous flow, and feedback. We come back pumped to start changing the way we work because we know it will improve our lives for the better. Then suddenly, the motivation gets drained out of us by all the internal systems in place that effectively prohibit change.
    Mik has boiled the reasons we face in these situations down to three things:
    Language differences between business and technology groups
    Change metrics are non-existent, broken or not relevant between groups
    Projects are considered cost centers
    Mik also takes a closer look at the concepts behind his book, including the value of product value streams, persistent teams, and organizing with the intention of reducing the number of dependencies.
