In this lecture you will learn the foundation you need to have built in before you start the change in the organization, following with Shu-Ha-Ri which is a way of thinking about how you learn a technique. We will learn how Shu-Ha-Ri is applied to agile transformation.

  • Shu: In this beginning stage the student follows the teachings of one master precisely. He concentrates on how to do the task, without worrying too much about the underlying theory. If there are multiple variations on how to do the task, he concentrates on just the one way his master teaches him.
  • Ha: At this point the student begins to branch out. With the basic practices working he now starts to learn the underlying principles and theory behind the technique. He also starts learning from other masters and integrates that learning into his practice.
  • Ri: Now the student isn't learning from other people, but from his own practice. He creates his own approaches and adapts what he's learned to his own particular circumstances.

    • Shu-ha-ri and Before you start

      Tipping Point

      After you are ready with all your preparation now you are ready to build your first agile team. This is a critical step as its success will define the future of the change you are putting in.

      Microsoft’s Developer Division, responsible for building massive software projects such as Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server, has been on a multi-year journey to transform itself from a waterfallian box product into an agile online service and regular client updates. In this session, we review the process and practices used by this division to deliver faster, react to feedback, plan and learn, stay connected to customers, continually improve quality, and measure success. We discuss the organizational issues experienced during the transformation and give examples of key practices and metrics used to improve the organization sprint over sprint. Hear about lessons learned in moving from a traditional software delivery team to a modern DevOps team.
