Without any doubt Scrum has a huge track record of success - but there is more! This website will provide you access to some information packages to improve your Scrum setup to be even more successful!
You must deliver releases to a specific point in time (due date) and you want to keep your agility? Then Buffer Management could be a good idea - Reliable-Scrum
You must improve your process to further reduce work-in-process and lead times? Then the TameFlow-Boards could be an interesting way to focus your team - Ultimate-Scrum
You have to deal with many stakeholders, and they need better information (e.g. delivery dates) to optimally adjust the backlog? Then the simplified-Drum-Buffer-Rope steering mechanism could be a solution - simplified Drum-Buffer-Rope
... are the engine of the progress - regardless managed agile or classical or hybrid!
Product development of measuring instruments for fault detection in supply networks - 200 employees, 60 developers, 2 locations.
Task delivery rate quadrupled in 20 weeks - project lead time reduced to 50%!
One of the largest telcos - responsible for 100,000,000 customers and 6,500 employees.
Project throughput doubled in one year! Reliability went up from 30% to over 80%!
... the cofounder of skype.
Story delivery rate of the app-development team increased by 50% within two weeks.
The team was able to realease earlier than expected!
We prepared a whole bunch of material and tools so you can start immediately applying these ideas on your team, project, or company.
And the best is - it's all for free!
Don't talk - just do - now!
Writing is important for understanding - and reading is important for personal development ...
... here just an offer of books that were written to understand the physics of flow and change!
2013 "The TameFlow Approach and Its Application to Scrum and Kanban (The Tameflow Hyper-productivity)"
This book written by Steve Tendon and me really digs deep into how to build an organization that is able to reach hyper-productivity! I like most the ideas of "community of trust" and "community of purpose"
2013 "Applying the Best of Critical Chain, Agile, and Lean"
This book written together with Mike Hannan brings the ideas of Lean, Agile and CCPM (TOC) together and shows how big organizations can become agile and high performant
It's written for CxO's - so easy and fast to read and very powerful ideas
p.s. more than 10k copies are out in two languages :-)
2017-2019 "Release 3" - yes, this book is written in an agile mode - with 10 authors a huge backlog and many hours of hard work
This book is for me the best compilation of articles on the physics of agile. It's about complexity, self-organization, mind-sets, Viable System Model, TOC and CCPM and Scale
p.s.: available in Spanish soon
We are currently something around 20 long term experienced consultants and manager who are not willing anymore to do stupid things! We all learned to operationalize changes to improve the performance of teams and organizations - agile and classic environments - in the end it does not matter. In the end it's all about Flow!
Mental Flow - this state of where mankind is really creative and productive
Work Flow - this state when resources are waiting for work and the work flows as fast as possible through the organization
Monetary Flow - if the work flows optimally then also the money flows
Change Flow - or fluid organizations that are self-(re-)organized to adjust in optimal speed to the environment
We don't want to consult or teach or advise - we just want to provide input, ideas, support so you can improve yourself. This is the main idea behind the BlueDolphin and that is what drives us every day!
agile occurred and we did a lot mistakes ...
the project got bigger and bigger and grew into portfolios and companies
self-organized changes became reality
