Change the way we think about Organizing Our People to Deliver Value – Agile by Design Inc.

Change the way we think about Organizing Our People to Deliver Value – Agile by Design Inc. | #Sogeti #Agile | Scoop.it
A key leadership responsibility in today’s enterprise is the understanding of how to create organizational structure that promotes agility. Most organizations think about their organizations as a hierarchy, with departments dedicated to specialist functions like marketing, finance, or IT. This hierarchy based model can make it very challenging  for knowledge workers to collaborate with each other in an environment of constant change. Multiple projects tend to pass through the organization, scattering responsibility for any particular initiative. The only way things get done is with a strong reliance on bureaucracy and management coordination. While this bureaucracy is able to (sometimes) enable the organization to deliver value, we often see individuals and teams suffer from permanent part timer syndrome, an overabundance of conflicting priorities, exceedingly long lead times, nonsensical process, and an inability to gather feedback and change direction quickly enough to keep up.

How feedback helps you develop better software: insights from the JIRA Mobile team - Atlassian Blogs | #Sogeti #Agile | Scoop.it
Collecting and responding to user feedback is what makes agile software development lean. This relationship creates a constant need to release early and develop with users in mind. As a result, user feedback is crucial to understanding how to add value to a product. Learn why feedback collection and early user involvement was such an important decision to the JIRA mobile team, how this set them up for success in a mobile world, and how feedback fits into the lifecycle of any software product.

Katrina the Tester: Benefits of cross-team pair testing in agile

Katrina the Tester: Benefits of cross-team pair testing in agile | #Sogeti #Agile | Scoop.it
This isolation was starting to seed imposter syndrome. The testers were beginning to doubt their own abilities and feel uncertain about whether they were doing things right.

Happily, one of the strongest themes in the feedback about cross-team pairing was that it increased visibility of what was happening in other teams. The opportunity to understand how another team operated was described as interesting, eye opening and awesome. Seeing other practices and processes gave a degree of comfort to each tester that their own approach was appropriate.

DevOps is greater than Automation - SogetiLabs

DevOps is greater than Automation - SogetiLabs | #Sogeti #Agile | Scoop.it
For me, DevOps is more than just automation or implementing certain tools.  Conceptually, DevOps is not just implementing Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Selenium, or writing unit tests in your language of choice.  DevOps is also not: agile specific, a prescriptive series of tasks and or tools to implement, a prescriptive methodology to be implemented.  DevOps is not having ‘deployments’ occurring every day.  DevOps is: a philosophy, a way of being, a way of operating, a goal that is never really achieved.  DevOps is ‘run-rinse-repeat’ methodology, or the standardization and repeatability of your processes.

DevOps Topologies

DevOps Topologies | #Sogeti #Agile | Scoop.it
The primary goal of any DevOps setup within an organisation is to improve the delivery of value for customers and the business, not in itself to reduce costs, increase automation, or drive everything from configuration management; this means that different organisations might need different team structures in order for effective Dev and Ops collaboration to take place.
