Outcome based roadmaps
co-author of Sense and Respond, Lean UX and Lean vs Agile vs Design Thinking
Roadmapping is a flawed concept in the age of Agile. Maps, by their definition, are linear and we don’t build linear products and services any more. We build continuous systems. Nevertheless, we have to be able to create and provide some plans for our teams, leaders and customers to set expectations about the ongoing improvements and future of the services we build. In this talk, Jeff Gothelf will discuss the concept of outcome-based product planning. Using specific examples and detailed tools, Jeff will show how taking a customer-centric look at product strategy and creating continuously improving plans ensures the teams maintain their agility, customer-focus and ultimately, the success of their product.

co-author of the book “Team Topologies: organizing business and technology teams for fast flow”. Recognized by TechBeacon as a DevOps thought leader
In this talk, we’ll explore how the patterns and principles from Team Topologies promote true business and technical agility through a rapid flow of software change, fast feedback from running systems, a strong drive for loose coupling, and awareness of sociotechnical mirroring. Combined with a product mindset and techniques from Domain-driven Design, the Team Topologies approach is helping organizations around the world to adapt to the “new normal” and achieve true business and technical agility.

Leveling up by giving your teams extreme freedom without reducing ownership
Ami Ganot, VP R&D, OM2 Technologies
Keren Chen, VP HR, OM2 Technologies
This talk describes our journey from a rather mechanical Agile transformation, to a deeper, more meaningful transformation which relies on profound self organization and a flat organization.
Having gone through this mindset shift, we now have high performing teams, and feel our transformation to Agile is providing huge benefits.
We will make the case for going through such a radical transformation, and detail the mechanisms we put in place to make it happen”

We will discuss how combining EOS and Agile provides a complete set of principles and practices that organizations can use to achieve their business goals, connecting long-term vision to yearly and quarterly plans, all the way to Agile backlogs, planning and tracking.
Optimizing continuous delivery
co-author of the Jolt-award winning book ‘Continuous Delivery’, Founder and director of Continuous Delivery Ltd
As teams mature in their adoption of Continuous Delivery though, the pipeline often begins to slow. We have more tests, we are testing more complex things, our software becomes more complex and more difficult to deploy. How do we address these growing pains? What are the next steps, beyond the CD beginner’s basic automation? How do we optimise our pipelines to meet our needs as these needs grow? This talk will address the growing pains in Continuous Delivery and describe some strategies to cope with them.”
Building systems that do not rot
Engineering manager, Software Gardener
Advocates of TDD often refer to Emergent Design as the holy grail – allowing design to emerge via small cycles of test-code-refactor is an excellent way to yield a lean, simple system that is adaptive to changes – thus being maintainable over time. But what do we do when reality forces us to adhere to some (Big Bad) Upfront Design? For years, I thought the two are incompatible, but when forced with hard requirements I had to adapt, and accidentally stumbled upon an excellent way to combine the two, allowing us to quickly grow a team and parallelize work early and efficiently. This talk is a case study of how we did that.
