    Our Systems Are Failing! Resilience for the Rest of Us

    Our Systems Are Failing! Resilience for the Rest of Us

    Complex systems are in a state of continuous failure. Resilience is the ability of the system to maintain its performance characteristics when failures occur. Benefits of resilience include high availability, quality, scalability, and improved business KPIs. 
    But, high level of resilience is hard to achieve and requires a combination of technical, procedural, and organizational approaches. In this episode, Stas Zvinyatskovsky, a managing director at Accenture, covers what it takes to achieve resilience in software systems.

    The Best Virtual Teams Do These 3 Things | Business Agility Series

    The Best Virtual Teams Do These 3 Things | Business Agility Series

    The drive for virtual meetings that are efficient and goal-oriented can often cause us to lose sight of the fact that we are people, needing real connection. Without the visual and often unspoken cues that normally surround us, our virtual interactions can be an uninteresting and lonely place. Morgan Legge, a speaker at the 2020 Business Agility Conference, shares three ways to grow meaningful and connected virtual teams and meetings.   
    “Pandemic work is not virtual work. I encourage people to remember that someday, we won’t be working with our kids and family all around us.”

    Meaningful Metrics are Simpler than You Think

    Meaningful Metrics are Simpler than You Think

    How do you know that you’re achieving the goals of your change? How do you know that large dashboard of OKRs and metrics will show you what you need to see? It’s not easy. Many organizations tend to measure the results of a long process, rather than the levers that drive the results.
     
    John Carter, product development expert, inventor, and founder and principal of TCGen Inc. shares his predictive metrics expertise using the example of agile at scale. Whether you’re about to begin a big change initiative, or you have one in progress, John Carter will inspire you to take a fresh look at your metrics.

    SAFe in a Virtual World

    SAFe in a Virtual World

    How will agile at scale change in an increasingly virtual world? SAFe Fellow Scott Frost and SPCT Shawn Lowe – both business agility consultants at Accenture | SolutionsIQ - discuss the best approaches and mindset for success in a virtual setting.
    While the world has been working virtually for some time, 2020 has pushed us into a new frontier that can be uncomfortable for large-scale transformation and training work. While it’s not business as usual, you can still make sustainable change within your organization. As Frost puts it: “When things change radically, we can survive. We are more adaptable than we thought we were.”
