BACKGROUND OF ERICSSON TRANSFORMATION
In 2009 Ericsson started a long journey to agility
Over 1000 people adopting an agile mindset
Before there was fear and uncertainty
Today there is a culture that supports creativity
EXPERIENCING THE PENDULUM OF CHANGE
The key is to continually review and refine changes, as new information surfaces
Overreaction is a natural outcome of defining new ways
High levels of enthusiasm for process change led people to use their experience
WORKING to FIXED DEADLINES
Before true state of a project was never truly clear, and delivery was unpredictable.
Iterative development regularly stops to review increments of a working product
SHIFT ENTRENCHED BEHAVIORS
To overcome the entrenched habits, Ericsson Mobile Core made 2 key decisions
Bringing the transition team & several pilot teams to one place
Using a strong team of external coaches to provide mentoring & coaching support
TRAIN the TRAINERS, COACH the COACHES
Identification of need to build internal agile coaching and training skills.
Story of Original 23 within Ericsson
INVEST TIME IN LEADERSHIP BUY-IN
Coaching upper management required time
They were encouraged to visit offices where the teams were working.
