Waiting for Godot: Concrete approaches to busting delays & why your enterprise should care (Adam Yuret) POPULAR

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Nobody likes waiting the glacially slow two-minutes it takes to microwave their lunch. Imagine how our customers feel waiting years for products only to discover the product doesn't actually solve their problem anymore. Or, worse yet, it solves a problem they needed solved years ago.
According to David J Anderson or Troy Magennis, queues, handoffs and wait times represent at least 85% of delays in getting our product to markets. In this talk I'll share concrete approaches to busing those delays. We'll discuss common sources of delay and approaches to reducing or eliminating them using data-driven approaches such as Theory of Constraints and Systems Thinking.
Agile is about shortening learning cycles by reducing the time we waste on non-essential activities such as doing work that doesn't create meaningful product, wasting energy on overly elaborate requirements documents that are outdated the minute they're created and working as individuals instead of high-performing teams.
Come learn how to use Eli Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints to significantly reduce or eliminate huge delays in your value streams. We want to deliver value to our customers quickly in order to get critical feedback from them on how to evolve the next iteration of our products.
While the customer waits, we're not learning from them. Let’s solve that problem together using Theory of Constraints and systems thinking.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Attendees will learn:
  • What delays value from flowing through our systems (with some data and some anecdotal evidence)
  • Why delays are the single greatest impediment to our ability to deliver value to our customers.
  • How to identify and address bottlenecks within a system.
  • The basics of Goldratt's Theory of Constraints (TOC) and why those principles and approaches are powerful.
  • How TOC relates to complexity thinking (Cynefin) and using both amplifies their effectiveness at solving problems with managing your portfolio and programs.
  • Introduction to Systems Thinking and how to manage the interconnected relationships within out organization effectively.
