I’m specifically involved with transforming Tech Services within DLG to be a more agile function. To increase awareness and engagement on this topic and to encourage cross functional communication and collaboration between our teams we do a number of things including running regular Agile meet ups, lunch & learn sessions and Communities of Practice in our Bromley site and for wider cross site communications we use our Yammer service, we publish a monthly news bulletin to share progress and stories from our teams and we attend team huddles to communicate what’s happening and how people can get more involved. We encourage regular and timely feedback specifically via our fortnightly retrospective sessions where we work as one team to explore what we are doing well and what we can improve upon. Other teams & initiatives make use of these same communications channels to maintain engagement.
Thanks Jen for the useful insights. It's really positive to see a strong network has been created for support and knowledge share on agile practices.
