Priyank Pathak as a Speaker at Next Generation Leadership Summit 2018

We are glad to announce Priyank Pathak as the Speaker, who is going to present at the Next Generation Leadership Summit 2018, held on August 30th, 2018 at Bengaluru. Priyank Pathak is currently, a Curator at INNOVATION ROOTS with 15+ years of experience as Enterprise Agile Transformation Coach and Continuous Delivery Consultant in Agile industry.

At the conference, he is going to give a 45 min session on ‘Feedback Early and Often’.  The Next Generation Leadership Summit 2018 is aimed to develop and motivate next generation of leaders. In the session, Priyank will speak about why Feedback is a critical factor of project success, and why most of the organisations implement feedback as a last step in the process and how it impacts. This one hour session explains about the issues that rises when Feedback becomes a last priority, which includes  a high increase in rework efforts, missing on customer expectations, and delivery not meeting the required standards.

This session is about examining and assessing the correct feedback process through a quick game on Feedback. As part of the session, participants would experience both scenarios – ‘late feedback with assumptions that everything will go fine at the end’ as well as ‘early feedback for evolving quality as an incremental process’.

System Demo | Glossary


The System Demo provides an integrated view of the newest features regarding the latest iteration that is delivered by every team in the Agile Release Train (ART). Each Demonstration gives an objective measurement of progress in between a Program Increment (PI)  to the stakeholders.

It’s a critical event that is an effective method for gathering immediate, ART level feedback from everyone that is involved in the task, as well as sponsors, stakeholders and customers. It’s the one real measure of value, progress and velocity of the fully integrated work from all the teams during the previous iteration. It’s a process that requires a lot of planning and preparation, but provides a fast feedback towards building the ideal solution.
