  • A G E N D A

    • Key elements of a collaborative culture

    • Building project

    • Review, debrief, observations

  • Key elements of a collaborative culture

    1 A unifying vision 2 Shared goals 3 Role & expectation clarity 4 Mutual respect 5 Promoting requisite skills 6 Qualified and capable leaders 7 Rewarding teamwork over heroics

    These create a sense of

    ‘community’…

    and supportive communities build TRUST

  • Benefits of Collaboration

    Efficiency

    Transparency

    Multi-focus

    Higher quality

    Greater innovation

    Increased trust

    …and Synergy

  • Bridge Building Project

    Objective:

    Construct a working drawbridge according to customer specifications within set time limits

    An opportunity to collaborate to achieve a goal

  • Bridge Building Project Objective: Construct a working drawbridge according to customer specifications within set time limits

    Teams will consist of the following: Release Manager – Project leader

    Development Team - Plan and design the solution based on requirements given the information, materials, and time provided

    Implementation Team – Test the solution to ensure it meets all requirements (QA) and put the solution into production (Operations)

  • Bridge Building Project The Development team will plan and build a solution to meet business requirements and deliver the solution with appropriate documentation to the Implementation team.

    Phase Who Time limit Output I. Planning Development Team (8 minutes) Design plan II. Construction Development Team (25 minutes) Build solution & document III. Testing Implementation Team (5 minutes) Test results IV. Production Implementation Team (2 minutes) Proof of solution

    Notes: The Implementation team will not participate in Phase I. Phases II and III may be iterative and overlap at the discretion of the Release Manager. The Implementation team cannot participate in construction but can provide feedback. After 38 minutes Phase IV will begin and solutions will be observed with a Pass or Fail outcome.

    Materials and instructions will be provided to each project team. As in a typical project, time limits will be strictly enforced.

  • Bridge Building Project Bridge specifications:

    1) The span of the drawbridge section must exceed the width of the ‘moat’

    2) The ramp leading to the drawbridge must be at least 7 inches long and the angle of the ramp (incline) must be no greater than 45 degrees (ratio of 1 to 1, height to length)

    3) The width of the ramp leading to the drawbridge must be at least 2.75 inches

    4) The drawbridge must be capable of being raised and lowered smoothly within 15 seconds (The Development team is to provide written instructions to the Implementation team in Phase II)

    5) The span of the drawbridge must be capable of supporting the weight of 2 cell phones Note: Only the materials provided can be used in bridge construction

    There are 3 structures to be engineered and built: 1) castle wall 2) drawbridge 3) ramp to the drawbridge

    Special recognition can be earned by meeting specifications with an artistic and/or elegant design or by building a ramp that can support the weight of at least one cell phone.

    Timing for phases will be kept centrally, but teams should maintain awareness of how much time is left in each phase internally (by the Release Manager).

  • Bridge Building Project

    We are now in Phase I The design of the 3 structures must occur during this phase.

    Phase Who Time limit Output

    I. Planning Development Team (8 minutes) Design plan

    II. Construction Development Team (25 minutes) Build solution & document

    III. Testing Implementation Team (5 minutes) Test results

    IV. Production Implementation Team (2 minutes) Proof of solution

    The Implementation team will not participate in this phase in any way.

  • Bridge Building Project

    We are now in Phase II (& III if deemed appropriate by Release Manager) Construction of the 3 structures must occur during this phase (testing optional)

    Phase Who Time limit Output

    I. Planning Development Team (8 minutes) Design plan

    II. Construction Development Team (25 minutes) Build solution & document

    III. Testing Implementation Team (5 minutes) Test results

    IV. Production Implementation Team (2 minutes) Proof of solution

    Note: At the discretion of the Release Manager Phases II & III can be iterative.

  • Bridge Building Project

    We are now in Phase IV Production implementation & proof of solution occurs in this phase

    Phase Who Time limit Output

    I. Planning Development Team (8 minutes) Design plan

    II. Construction Development Team (25 minutes) Build solution & document

    III. Testing Implementation Team (5 minutes) Test results

    IV. Production Implementation Team (2 minutes) Proof of solution

    The Development team will not participate in this phase in any way.
