Agile in the Bathtub

 

How does a company produce bathtubs in an agile way?

Lessons learned from my experience as a coach — with a software background — in a non software context.
A report on how a traditional top-down organization transitioned to Agile/Lean for its product development and how this (inevitably) propagated to other departments.

While Lean has been previously (mis)applied in various contexts the talk will show the power of combining Agile — and — Lean values and principles to build a non software product. From Self-organization to Premortem Retrospectives to Kanban for Portfolio Management we will see how we exploited transparency and continuous adaptation to address main dysfunctions and to transform half-heartened people to proactive and motivated team players.

Describing the technical details of the transition I will try to explain (a) key success factors, (b) main issues and obstacles encountered,  (c) insights that we can take back to the software domain and (d) how different is coaching Product Engineers from coaching Software Developers.

Key insight from this experience: Agile may work also in non software contexts, and it's not just a matter of practices
