Context - Scaled agile for practitioners
Speaker pitch
The Agile Community is infested with a Swarm of Less Safe Dads. Scaling practices developed by people who often haven’t done Agile beyond the classroom, and no thought beyond the certification process.

Come and hear stories about Scaled Agile from a Practitioner. Learn about the things you need to do beyond Scrum, Kanban, Cost of Delay and Lead Time. Learn about capacity planning at the portfolio level, of success and of failure so that you can avoid it. Hear tales about risk and governance… and hear about the most important thing of all… Context. Learn about contexts when Cost of Delay is Safe to use, and where it can cause failure in the prioritisation process.

Most of all, learn how attending conferences like FlowCon is an important risk management technique… but only if you speak to the practitioners and avoid the thought leaders.

Le mot de l’organisation
C’est Chris qui nous a proposé ce sujet et ça va sûrement décoiffer. C’est un orateur connu et reconnu sur la place anglaise, donc on lui fait toute confiance.

Continuous delivery at Scale
Speaker pitch
“Continuous Delivery is fairly easy to implement in a ‘two-pizza team’. But what about when you have to adopt the practice across 10s or 100s of teams with legacy infrastructure, governance and security concerns not to mention clashing cultural norms. Not so simple.
Continuous Delivery is not a tool or a single team practice. There are several factors to a successful implementation: organisational, process and architectural. Each one will require significant changes in your organisation. I’ll share with you the common pitfalls and anti-patterns in each of these areas, which will hinder your ability to deliver your features and products rapidly at scale.”

Portfolio management to enable growth
Speaker pitch
At bol.com, the largest online retailer in the Netherlands and Belgium, the IT organisation grew from 10 to over 70 teams in several years. These teams support over 600 micro-services, and ideas for innovations and improvements are plentiful. Due to this growth, the contribution of each individual team towards the bigger goals of bol.com became more and more obfuscated. Continuously shifting priorities, without the teams understanding why these priorities change, became more and more a roadblock towards the autonomy of the teams. In this environment we needed a portfolio management system which can support these teams but can also help management in determining the right projects to work on, launch the most promising experiments and provide insights and control to the teams on their contribution to bol.com. In this talk, we will explore if a portfolio management system can even be agile and if it can contribute to the autonomy and purpose of teams. We will review the previous portfolio management system and how it could no longer support our growth. Then we will dive into the new system, based on funnels, which we call ‘Beats’. We will look at this portfolio management from a team’s perspective and from a management perspective. What does it offer them? We conclude this talk with the challenges we are still facing.

Le mot de l’organisation
Ca parle de vision produit et d’organisation et comment elle se diffuse au sein de la structure. Pour employer des gros mots, c’est toute la question du bridge entre la stratégie et l’execution. Nous ne connaissons pas Anton, donc ça sera une découverte sachant que nous avons lu ses articles et que nous prenons le risque d’apprendre.
