Re.vers.ify Organizations with Scrum – interview with Gunther Verheyen

Strefa PMI nr 17, czerwiec 2017

An interview with Gunther Verheyen by Paulina Szczepaniak You are a renowned international agile expert, with particular expertise in Scrum. Why do you think this framework became so popular? Probably because of the growing need of what I like to call “agility”, meaning flexibil¬ity, responsiveness, and not just from an IT perspective. IT is where agile sort of emerged from, but companies have to survive and thrive in very turbulent markets, a lot of business changes, market competition, but also internal changes, stakeholders and so on. And the way that organizations are struc¬tured and therefore how they organize their IT work and their software development, because that follows from the way they are structured, is just not fit for the agility re¬quired today to thrive and prosper. Structures are very rigid, very fixed, and need to become more dynamic.

Pirate of Innovation – interview with Tendayi Viki

Kornelia Trzęsowska

12-08-2021

Strefa PMI nr 33, Czerwiec 2021

An interview with Tendayi Viki by Kornelia Trzęsowska Do you agree with Steve Jobs that it’s more fun to be a pirate than to join a navy? You refer to his words in the title of your newest book. I don’t think it’s more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy. Pirates are often in danger of dying. Steve Jobs was talking about how startups are faster than already set up companies – they move quicker than any large company. But what we’re learning these days is that large companies often become innovative, maybe surprisingly. The cool thing about large companies is that they have something that startups don’t have – they already have a brand, access to markets, customers, vast resources and other assets. Sometimes startups are really small and they need to find all these things by themselves. As long as large companies create the right environment for innovation, I really believe that it’s better to be a pirate in the navy than to be a pirate outside the navy, because you have a greater chance of success.

Mental Agility – the Foundation for Every Change in the Organization – interview with Erich R. Bühler

Renata Puszkiel

17-03-2021

Strefa PMI nr 32, Marzec 2021

Interview with Erich R. Bühler conducted by Renata Puszkiel You have been accompanying various organizations across the globe during the transformations towards business agility. What do you find so exciting about the change that you decided to choose such a career? Let me go back in time… my first job was in a software company back in Uruguay in 1994. During the first years of my career, I started realizing that change was hard. The more you invest in trying to change an organization and the ways that people work, the more you need to consider new paradigms and foundations. And helping people and creating new foundations have been my main motivators. When individuals learn something new in the company, they are not just happy to apply those ideas there but they also take them back home and use them in their private lives. That is why we have to be responsible. Responsibility is not just about knowing that something is going to work or not in the organization, but about trying to understand how it will influence a person and might positively change their life.

Scrum is wonderful, it is just not enough – interview with Mark Lines

Dominika Kantorowicz

11-01-2021

Strefa PMI nr 31, Listopad 2020

Interview with Mark Lines, Vice-President of PMI and co-creator of Disciplined Agile, conducted by Dominika Kantorowicz Disciplined Agile began in around 2009 when the co-creator – Scott Ambler – was the Chief methodologist of Agile and Lean for IBM worldwide. He recognized that we needed something more robust than just Scrum to deliver complex, enterprise initiatives using agile. Scrum is described by a 19-page guide. While Scrum is wonderful, it is just not enough. So Scott asked me for help and together we decided to pull together supplemental practices from all the different methods and frameworks and bring them together into one cohesive library of practices and strategies, as well as fit-for-context advice for which ones make sense in different situations. We need to recognize that there is not just one agile process that suits all situations. If you’re building a simple website, you don’t need to do much in the way of requirements.

We know the “how”, we know the “what”, but we forget to ask “why” – interview with Michel Thiry

Andrzej Kacperski

06-01-2021

Strefa PMI nr 26, wrzesień 2019

An interview with Michel Thiry conducted by Andrzej Kacperski. When Agile became popular many companies started to use it just because they wanted to be Agile like everyone else at the market. The use of Agile is not as easy as it seems, for example Scrum is “simple to understand but difficult to master”. Fortunately, a lot of companies managed to implement it successfully. I believe that mastering of the hybrid approach may be much more complicated. Aren’t you afraid that initially this approach will be harmless for the organizations as they will not be able to implement it properly?
