How can you super-charge your Agile journey?

Continuous Agile Chartering is a "new" Agile Practice to enable and promote self-organisation. It will connect stakeholders with developers, and it will help you optimise your planning. In this hands-on workshop, I will introduce you to this "new" Agile Practice. And you'll try the practice out.

This workshop is for facilitators, team coaches and product owners. It's for curious enterprise leaders and development managers. I also invite the technical developers. I welcome your feedback. Let's make sure this works for you.

In this 3-hour, live, fully-interactive workshop you will:

  • Describe the three integrated focus areas for any Agile Chartering event—Purpose, Alignment, and Context (from Liftoff by Larsen and Nies).
  • Identify the scope of your planning horizons, and explain ways to improve self-organisation and agility at each horizon (including the daily standup).
  • Use the charter-mat to place new, continuous focus on Purpose, Alignment, and Context so you can plan Agile discovery and delivery as a team.
  • Create new continuous engagement with your sponsors so that you deliver better outcomes for everyone.
  • Discuss varied and appropriate facilitation activities for your planning events (both in the room and on Zoom).

What about the new normal distributed teams?

Although Charting and Continuous Agile Chartering are practices made for co-located teams working in the same room I've found that the practices moves online with ease. Continuous Agile Chartering offers natural templates for distributed teams and stakeholders working over Zoom (and other communications tools).

The pilot workshop is finished. We will announce new workshops and training courses soon. Join our mailing list for more information.

What is Continuous Agile Chartering?

You might think of Agile Chartering is a one time activity. Or at best, a big event that you do once in a blue moon. But wait. If chartering is good, what happens when you do more chartering?

In the spirit of eXtreme Programming, let's take this good practice and make sure it's agile by taking it to extremes. Let's make good chartering practices continuous. We've already done that with integratation and deployment after all.

Not only will Agile Chartering enhance your quarterly release planning—not to mention your big room SAFe PI planning, Agile Chartering is also a way to upgrade every sprint planning meeting.

You'll be surprised. Continuous Agile Chartering is even made for your daily standups.

It's hard to believe that one scalable practice can give you better outcomes at every planning horizon. But, Continuous Agile Chartering does exactly that.

Let's explore this practice.

“Love your work, Steve. The more I engage, the more I discover the value you have to offer to this world. So looking forward to the fun and learning.”
