When you look at how work flows through an organization, what you see is often the time when people in teams are actively working on it. Mostly neglected are the wait states. They naturally appear in all organizations around the world when more than one team is working on the same task, or if external dependencies like vendors or agencies are involved. How can you identify them, and how can teams learn to reduce the wait time to deliver quicker and more reliably to their customers, co-operate better and hence improve their team and organizational culture?
This simulation allows an experience of flow and collaboration across multiple teams that need to work together to deliver value. Individual teams can be competence, component or technology teams each with their own area of specialization. They could even be feature teams (full-stack teams) to the extent that each feature team focusses on its own feature set (e.g. check-out, …). The simulation demonstrates multi-tiered flow and collaboration across 2 different levels:
1) the request level and
2) work item level
One of the elements of this simulation is to experience bottlenecks in a multi-team context and the effects of this on delivering value. This simulation is relevant in combination with methods that address scaling.
4 hours simulation, including group discussion, real life simulation and debrief. (virutal version; in person if Silke Noll is in Germany)
The course will be run out of New Zealand.
4-5 hours, 8-12am CEST, 6-10pm NZST.
We will collect expressions of interest and then decide about dates that work for everybody. The class can also be run in-house.
