AgileByExample

Krzysztof Niewiński

I have been working in the IT industry since 2005. I am a software engineer, trainer, consultant and promoter of the Agile and Lean approach. I have been following my path to “agility” for 15 years and I have been in many roles in the process of software development—from a programmer, through analyst, manager, to Scrum Master/Agile Coach.

For 7 years I have been professionally involved in creating adaptive, learning, customer-oriented organizations. I work with big Product groups. I am a promoter of the LeSS (Large Scale Scrum) approach in Poland, enabling large-scale product development. I gained my experience in Allegro Group (&PayU), in smaller companies, including VRenetic, Finevare, HRS as well as in large corporations like ERGO, Orange, UPC, or CircleK. I regularly appear at conferences, write articles, and organize the LeSS Warsaw community.

Workshop—LeSS Kick-off

In my DOJO you will practice the elements of transforming an organization using the LeSS framework. We will practice the preparation steps and starting the first multi-team Sprint.

We will discuss and simulate:
What to take care of before starting the first multi-team Sprint.
Creating a new org structure - "Self-designing Teams Workshop”
Preparation of the Product Backlog - "(Initial) Product Backlog Refinement" in a multi-team environment
Conducting multi-team Sprint Planning, Sprint Review etc.
Multi-team coordination - practices of day-to-day team collaboration

The workshop is intended mainly for Scrum Masters / Agile Coaches / Change Facilitators. It does not explain the "why" of LeSS, but focuses on specific facilitation techniques and elements that initiate work in multiple-team Scrum (LeSS).
