Q&A

====

 

Is AFM top-down or bottom-up?

If you don't have the executive support, these things don't last.

executive sponsorship

people may 'rebel' and do these things, but even if they achieve beautiful things, they leave after a time

 

Does a team need to be proficient in all practices of a zone?

Are they receiving the benefits of a zone?

What other things could we try?

 

(there are practice maps for coaches and facilitators)

 

Is there any maturity model for agile fluency?

Within each zone, there is a level of maturity.

But look at the benefits

 

How can we start assessing our

We do it in a crowdsourced way.

We bring the team in the same room.

Charts with 21 questions

Put dots up

Compare responses

eg. "are 20% of your stories always estimated?"

discuss the splits in responses

Listen to the discussion, extract the words and what they say

(4 month facilitator training)

 

How can fluency be sustained? With churn...?

Stable teams are very important.

Reality is churn already happens

Look at fast agile or dynamic reteaming, and see why some of the old models (norming, forming, storming) don't work in the complex environment we work in.

It really is not an issue

 

If we achieve the purpose of zone, in order to proceed further, what needs to be done?

On day 1 you can start practicing multiple zones

 

If we're on the Agile Plateau, how can we shake it up?

Introduce Mob Programming, it's usually easier than pair programming.

You need to introduce an area where people can practice and learn. (code dojo)

 

How can we identify if a team is a plateau?

You don't get the benefit you expected

Repeating the same problems, not improving.
