The A3 Agile Business - An Agile Alignment Approach

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As scale and distribution set in at organisations that have strong growth, spreading the lean and agile culture becomes even more important to keep teams aligned and motivated. At Rally, we have fallen in love with A3 Thinking and templates to address this challenge. We do new hire bootcamps, employee trainings and walk the talk, but A3’s seem to be the most effective tool for helping us spread lean thinking and empower teams to share their problems and strategies.   This talk will tell our story, challenge the audience and provide some education on these powerful tools for enabling teams to collaborate, steer and take action.

The talk will include a variety of A3’s with our templates and cheat sheets, covering.

  • How to keep many teams aligned on a common strategy. X-Matrix A3 and Strategy A3’s used to engage everyone in collaboratively planning strategy

  • How to ensure problem-solving efforts actually deliver results. Problem A3’s used to gain visibility of improvements and associated metrics

  • How to decide which innovative ideas are worth pursuing. Experiment A3’s used as part of an innovation funnel and horizon planning

  • How to make agreements on the work clear. Initiative A3’s used to manage significant business and technical work

  • How to help workgroups become real teams. Team Formation A3’s used to bring people together for a common goal

  • How to make it all work. Challenges and real world learnings
