About this webinar:

Engineering tomorrow’s products means staying ahead and relevant in a continually changing environment. In the all-new area of Covid 19, IT development work has been mostly executed remotely. It’s a big change because ‘collocated teams’ is one of the big beliefs in agile methods. Employees are required to work from a different location. For some organizations, this global event has significantly altered the preconception that Agile teams must be physically located in an office and it has already demonstrated that employees can be highly productive even in a remote setting. It might even be, that this kind of remote working will be the ‘new normal’.

In this small series of workshops, we would like to discuss with you, in an open space manner, the following topics.

  • What is different when working remotely instead of collocated?
  • How to ensure, that everybody is mostly ‘on the same page’ of understanding?
  • How do you deal with different working habits (late vs. early)?
  • Who do you socialize remotely (being in a bad mude or having troubles etc.)?
  • Which tools are you currently using?
  • What do we consider as essential in working remote?
  • How to create an effective working environment?
  • What are your current struggles in working with others when working from home?
  • How to maintain team collaboration?
  • How to handle the SAFe Zeremonies like PI Planning, System Demo, Inspect & Adapt?
  • How to deal with new practices, learnings and continious learning?
  • What could the future way of working look like?
  • How do you keep track of everything that’s going on, which you’d normally do by walking around the office?
  • How do you get a “feeling” of how things are going? (in Dutch: “Vinger aan de pols houden”)
  • Do’s and don’ts in working remotely?
  • What are some simple house rules, which need to be in place?

In this webinar, we:

  • discuss the importance of the questions raised and discuss it in an open space manner
  • introduce some concepts and practices of Applied SAFe with respect to remote working
  • showcase some practical examples as used by Theo and Jeffry (Miro, Mural etc.)
  • will talk about some lessons learned
  • … look forward to some discussions and your questions!
