CAS 50 Frameworks
   

Topic Summary

We've been exploring a variety of tools and techniques to help organizations with 10 or more Scrum Teams collaborate effectively. 
In this webinar, Master Facilitator Andi Roberts will explore a number of frameworks that he recommends to help organizations address a variety of challenges in strategy development, innovation, business model design, and collaborative teamwork.

Top 3 Questions Asked

  1. Seems like definition of framework encompasses process and tools used for product development/delivery.  Would further clarify the meaning of the term.

  2. When is a good idea to use canvas.

  3. I work in a bank digital factory and somehow fortunately we have roles from multiple areas, Techs, POs, SMs, UX and Digital Marketing... however I have not found a framework that describe the interaction between all those roles and perhaps the sequence of their deliverables. Do you have a recommendation?

Top 3 Questions Asked & Answered

Question 1: Seems like definition of framework encompasses process and tools used for product development/delivery.  Would further clarify the meaning of the term.

Answer 1: 

  • Andi:  A framework is a repeatable pattern, ideally visually, that allows us or guides us to a certain outcome. Frameworks can be used in more areas.

  • Laura: Frameworks can be a lot of things, complex and simple.  Lean Startup is a framework to increase the likelihood that a product will lead to revenue by delighting customers who are willing to pay.  Lean’s Build, Measure, Learn process can be supported by individual frameworks like Buy a Feature which make it easy for customers to prioritize features they like.



Question 2: When is a good idea to use canvas?

Answer 2: 

  • Andi: When you need to do 1) Deeper thinking with a range of stakeholders / collaborators 2) When you have a clearly defined goal and objective.

  • Laura: I would add, 3) when you want to increase engagement and level the playing field between introverts and extroverts 4) when you want to increase creativity 5) when the topic might be “charged” and adding a metaphorical framework can increase feelings of distance or safety, thus increasing participation.  Lastly I would say that using online frameworks increases your ability to create durable data that can be analyzed and reflected on and leveraged long after a meeting concludes.



Question 3: I work in a bank digital factory and somehow fortunately we have roles from multiple areas, Techs, POs, SMs, UX and Digital Marketing... however I have not found a framework that describe the interaction between all those roles and perhaps the sequence of their deliverables. Do you have a recommendation?

Answer 3: 

  • Andi:  I do not know if a framework that does this and not sure a framework would help. This seems to be more of a process / flow map situation.

  • Laura: We have used a framework called Remember the Future to help clarify roles and responsibilities but this works best when a group starts by clearly defining the desired end state.  Then swim lanes are created for each role and this cross functional team works backwards from the goal identifying steps, goals, metrics, accomplishments etc that will have led to the completion of the goal.  The end result is a sequence but building it backwards helps teams gain more insight into how they will succeed together. I agree with Andi, I would want this group to create an interaction diagram (perhaps leveraging Spider Web) if no specific goal was at stake.
