Managing dependencies effectively is often the key to unlocking enterprise scale agility. However, existing Agile doctrine doesn’t provide a good solution, often resorting to “big planning up-front”, large, expensive meetings, the use of copious balls of string, only to find later that many dependencies remained hidden and emerged later only to disrupt plans and delay deliverables.

Enterprise Services Planning has an elegant solution to managing dependencies in large-scale businesses, and it is a solution tried and tested in many other environments where uncertainty and risk are prevalent: the use of dynamic reservation systems, capacity allocation, and classes of reservation. If you’ve ever held a “stand-by” ticket, or a “shuttle service” ticket, or ever paid extra for a fully refundable, changeable ticket, or ever pre-paid a hotel reservation to save money but the conditions stated that your booking wasn’t changeable or refundable, then you’ve already experienced the use of a dynamic reservation system, to manage risk and uncertainty. Such systems can be used to elegantly manage dependencies in enterprise services work, and product development. This compact 1-day class will teach you how!

Learn how to manage dependencies better using probabilistic approaches to risk and reduce or completely eliminate your existing, expensive, time-consuming and unreliable, deterministic approach. Using techniques, pioneered, tested and evolved at the large online travel business, eDreams Odigeo, you’ll learn a better way to enable enterprise agility and Agile at scale. Learn to manage dependencies with classes or reservation based on risk assessment, dynamic reservation systems and capacity allocation linked to patterns of demand.

The Agile Pain Point Solutions (APPS) Series is a collection of 1-day classes that cut straight to the challenges people have been reporting to us for over a decade. Offering simple, yet powerful answers, each class gives you new skills and insights with which to address an aspect of Agile adoption that is poorly addressed in conventional literature.

  • “As a business, we measure the wrong things and our culture isn’t suitable for Agile adoption, how can we fix it?”
  • “We struggle to write small, fine-grained requirements, can you help us get better at it?”
  • “Prioritization is painful, time-consuming and stressful. We have a huge backlog. Can you help us get better at prioritizing?”
  • “We struggle to scale Agile because of dependencies. How can we identify them earlier and manage our capacity better? Dependency management feels like ‘Big Planning Up-front’”
  • “We aren’t good at estimating; can you help us get better at it?”

Are these familiar problems to you? Do you find your Agile advisors lay the blame with you? If only you followed established guidance better, harder, with greater diligence and intensity, then all would be well? The answers to these challenges always seem to be more elaborate, detailed, intense, and frustrating – big expensive meetings, more and more collaborators to coordinate, more detail, more complicated equations, more-and-more time: it all feels like you are going backwards, further and further from true agility.

For years, Kanban University has had truly elegant solutions to these problems, but they haven’t been easily accessible – buried inside our Enterprise Services Planning (ESP) 5-day training. Now, we are making these Agile Pain Point Solutions (APPS) available in easy to consume 1-day classes, specifically to address the problems and challenges our customers have been reporting to us for a decade.

If you are a product owner, or involved in Agile planning for your organization, then the Kanban APPS series will give you the skills to be successful and to deliver true organizational agility.
