RSGI14-52d: Using Scrum to Scrum

YOU are a large organization……….

YOU want to start using Scrum across the organization…

YOU are unsure how to start and execute your plan for Enterprise Agile adoption…..


Nurturing Organizational Transformation into Scrum Practices

Presenter: Mr Kirti Vaidya

Focus on an iterative Organizational Transformation into Scrum Practices by establishing a program which implements a few specific practices at a time on select pilot projects within fixed duration time-frames. A practice is implemented as a reusable asset consisting of roles, workflows, work products, and guidance. The program runs Scrum sprints where teams are trained and coaches embed the practices within the pilot projects. Feedback matures the practice definitions which then get published across the organization.


Sounds an interesting approach for Agile Transformation??

To understand this interesting approach to Organizational Transformation into Scrum Practices and learn about the governance, management, techniques, and tools to use within such transformations and treat them as humane organizational change management. join our speaker Kirti Vaidya as he offers an insight into how to approach a large scale Organizational Transformation using Scrum and other Agile Practices

RSGI14-53d: The Power of Relationships

The Power of Relationships

Presenter: Niloofer Giri ji

Agile is all about people and their interactions and relationships. To succeed as a Scrum team, we need to form strong inter-team and intra-team relationships. But do we really understand the relationships???


Relating is an art, a skill, a talent….
Our whole lives are spent relating to objects, beings and circumstances.

There are various unseen laws and principles that govern our relationships.

Knowing these laws means that we don’t unknowingly injure ourselves or others while relating.
On the other hand, one could make use of one’s knowledge of the laws to build strength and power, dependability and trust, sustainability and independence in relationships.

Most relating is often impulsive, based on likes or dislikes, based on inner pressures, or family, peer and society pressures.
Based on ignorance, we find relating based on fear or anxiety, excitement or monotony.

A capacity given to us to help enrich life…needs to be understood well, if we wish to align ourselves with the power that is inherent in relationships.


To understand the delicate intricacies of relationship and how to nurture them for collective success, join our acknowledged keynote speaker Niloofer Giri Ji as she explains this rather intriguing part of our psyche in a most mesmerizing way.

The term “coach” has become an overloaded and almost meaningless term in much the same way that “agile” has. Many individuals are calling themselves coaches who have little or no practical experience with Agile in large enterprise organizations.

Organizations are confused about who they really need to bring success to their Agile transformation, and thus, are advertising for the wrong skills.

The Coaching Clinic @ RSGI2014

Regional Scrum Gathering India 2014, July 11-12, 2014, Hyderabad, India


Presenting the Coaches Clinic at biggest gathering of Scrum Enthusiasts and Agile Philosophers in South Asia: The Regional Scrum Gathering India 2014.  This free service, organized by the Certified Scrum Coach community, offers 15-minute coaching sessions during conference breaks. Participants are matched with volunteer coaches, many of who will be CSCs and CSTs, to discuss their issues.

 “I love to meet people who come to the Scrum Gatherings – curious, concerned, and cheerful people working to improve their organizations and their individual work lives. It is very rewarding to see them walk out of the clinic with new understanding, new ideas to consider, and smiles on their faces.”

– Roger Brown, Las Vegas Coaches Clinic facilitator

Daniel Gullo, CSC, CST would facilitate our Coaches Clinic at RSGI 2014, organizing everything from developing the schedule and sign-in board to securing coaches and warmly welcoming attendees who want the opportunity to be coached.

More than 15 coaches would be offering their services during the Gathering. Topics can range from breaking down development silos, changing the middle management mindset to coordinating multiple teams and educating upper management for enhanced agility. Key to the  clinic’s success is the approach: coaching versus consulting, with coaches helping participants discover their own solutions rather than prescribing one.
