Integrating Systems Thinking into Enterprise Agile With the Lessons of Lean

Alan Shalloway is presenting at an Agile Denver event: Lean-Agile Transformation, to which some of the best thought leaders in the Lean-Agile world have been invited to donate their time and share their insights, knowledge and experiences about organizational transformations and the role each of us play to make a Lean-Agile transformation successful.

While Scrum and XP have become very popular in agile development shops, most companies adopting them run into problems beyond just a few teams. These challenges often fall into a common set of patterns, which points to a lack of systems thinking—the process of understanding how things influence one another within a larger whole.

Alan Shalloway shares his ideas on how the agile community can move beyond its team-centric approach to adopt a more holistic, systems-based approach. Systems thinking creates new opportunities to create substantially larger development teams—Alan calls them “pan-teams.” These teams work interdependently with a common vision and context. Pan-teams enhance the motivations for the teams and individuals to collaborate as a normal part of their daily work thus reducing the amount of forced collaboration. Although not a panacea, systems thinking provides a better platform to solve enterprise-wide challenges because your organization learns to approach problem-solving holistically and avoid the trap of unintended consequences
