I&A Series – “Outside team interference and noise; unnecessary outside team involvementā€

Posted on Updated on

I started a new series of posts where I will answer someĀ actualĀ problems/ideas presented in an I&A problem solving workshop as part of open space facilitation. This is the third of a few dozen that I plan on covering. If you have any comments, please, letā€™s learn together.

Problem/Idea #3:

A SAFe Answer

This problem is not unique to the SAFe or Lean-Agile space. It exists in every organization I’ve encountered.

It is, however, a big, common problem. How many times have you or your team been “redirected” to work on the latest fire fighting drill? Was this time accounted for in the waterfall/traditional silo planned WBS that you are working against? I’m certain your manager and project managers always go back to the integrated master schedule (IMS) to reflect lost productivity. IMS’s always account for production down, maintenance, operations? Sure they do. Especially when the team doing costing gets to review the proposal and “tweak” the final numbers. [insert massive sarcasm]

IMG_0335Great news network! We are building a new enterprise lean-agile team to support our clients in Oklahoma!

We are hiring Agile coaches (preferably SAFeĀ© SPC4 and RTE’s) and Agile Scrum masters at all career levels. I am the chief career experience servant leader for the team. Private message me for more information and an interview request. Not all requests will receive a reply, apologies. I will be screening your detailed LinkedIn profile (+ me so I can see it). Resumes / CVs are not desired.

If you are only looking for a job please do not apply. We are not a body shop. We are passionate servant leaders focused on value delivery and successful outcomes with great work-life balance. For all stakeholders.

Must be a US Citizen, self-motivated lifelong learner and be able to obtain a security clearance. This team will support our U.S. Federal government, State government, and commercial clients.

Big letter “A” Agile experience required. Be prepared to explain in detail your knowledge, understanding, philosophy of Agile mindset, values and principles. Excellent, well rounded communication skills are an absolute requirement. SAFe experience is encouraged, but other scaling frameworks are also acceptable. We do best practices, not framework wars.

No third party queries please. Many thanks to those that have already communicated. We are still in progress, not done done yet. WIP limits…
