12 Questions Wildly Successful Agile Teams Answer Every Day

By attending the presentation of “12 Questions”, participants will understand how to embrace an effective strategy for achieving and sustaining behavioral change in their organization that leads to a culture of operational greatness. Drawing upon decades of experience as a world-class musician-turned-successful software engineering entrepreneur, presenter Jeff Dalton helps organizations understand what it takes to strengthen their agile approach so that it can scale companywide. Participants will take away tips for improving performance, predictability, collaboration and quality with agile values, methods and techniques, including how to:

  • Bring greater clarity and strength to Scrum ceremonies
  • Drive quality and performance improvement across the board
  • Strengthen the understanding, adoption, and continuous improvement of the agile values and behaviors in your organization
  • Reassure clients that you have a plan for scaling agile in a way that can help them get improved results.
  • Get more out of your investment in agile and other performance improvement frameworks

He is the former Chairman of the CMMI Institute’s Partner Advisory Board and President of the Great Lakes Software Process Improvement Network (GL-SPIN). Jeff was the Keynote Speaker for the PMI Great Lakes 2013 Symposium. In 2008, Jeff coined the term Process Debt to describe the crushing, over-bearing processes too many companies employ to achieve a CMMI rating. He is a recipient of the prestigious Software Engineering Institute’s SEI Member Award for Outstanding Representative for his work uniting the Agile and CMMI communities together through his popular blog “Ask the CMMI Appraiser”.
Jeff holds degrees in Music and Computer Science and builds experimental airplanes in his spare time.
