Limitiert Scrum Patterns: Understanding Scrum In-Depth and Accelerating your Team
Scrum Patterns: Understanding Scrum In-Depth and Accelerating your Team

The Scrum Guide lays out the rules of the game called Scrum. Beyond it, there are known "secrets" necessary to making Scrum work—but most teams never get to them.

Scrum experts have been working for years to collect and write these nuggets down as patterns. The seminar is based on the book "A Scrum Book" — a de facto standard for Scrum, and a definitive exposition of the why behind everything Scrum. You'll learn about Scrum at a deeper level than you probably reached during your CSM, PSM, or CSPO training — focusing on your team's special needs.

Maximum number of participants: 30

Target Audience: Scrum team members (all Scrum roles); managers and other players in organizations using Scrum
Prerequisites: Basic Scrum familiarity (any Scrum certification, or membership on a practicing Scrum team)
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract
When you have a new child in your family, there are a lot of things you need to know that aren't in the owner's manual. What? You didn't get an owner's manual with your child? Even Scrum has an "owner's manual" called The Scrum Guide — but all it does is to provide a dry, formal description of the boundaries of Scrum. Yet there are known "secrets" to making Scrum work, but, unfortunately, some teams never get to them.

Scrum community experts have been collecting these secrets for years, and working together to write them down as patterns. The seminar is based on the book "A Scrum Book" — a de facto standard for what Scrum means, and a definitive exposition of the why behind everything Scrum. Even the inventor of Scrum, Jeff Sutherland, now uses them as a central part of his training and of describing Scrum. And now they’re freely available to you. Come and learn how to use them and what they mean to your organization, and how you can use them to chart a powerful new direction of kaizen for your Scrum team! You'll learn things about Scrum at a deeper level than you probably reached during your CSM, PSM, or CSPO training — and the seminar is focused on your team's special needs.

There will be exercises to develop pattern sequences from the pattern language, and to identify solutions to your own impediments using patterns. The session culminates with an exercise where you assess your own Scrum team and develop a concrete action plan to remedy the gaps between your current practice and those parts of Scrum that will move you forward. In the end, the goal is to move beyond Scrum — and this session lays the foundations for you eventually to do that.

We encourage you to attend as Scrum team, perhaps using this event as a retrospective!

Jim Coplien is an old programming language shark who now does world-wide consulting on Agile software development methods and architecture. He is one of the founders of the software pattern discipline, and his organizational patterns work is one of the foundations of both Scrum and XP. He has written several books on programming, software design, and organizational design. He currently works for Gertrud & Cope in Denmark. When he grows up he wants to be an anthropologist.

Limitiert Timing in Testing
Timing in Testing

Today we must deal with shorter time-to-market, increasing complexity and more agility while keeping quality and other key system properties high.

To address these challenges the right timing in testing is critical but often not explicitly tackled. Therefore, in this interactive tutorial we reflect on our current approach on timing in testing, investigate and discuss needed strategies, tactics, and practices in different areas, and share experiences and lessons learned to improve timing in testing – because it is time to act now!

Maximum number of participants: 50

Target Audience: Test Architects, Test Engineers, Product Owners, Quality Managers, Software Architects, Developers
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge about testing and quality engineering
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract
Today we must deal with shorter time-to-market, increasing complexity and more agility while keeping quality and other key system properties high. Our test systems increase in size, volume, flexibility, velocity, complexity, and unpredictability. Additionally, digitalization requires more than just a face lift in testing.

To address these challenges the right timing in testing (“when to do what kind of testing and how?”) is critical, but often not explicitly tackled. Therefore, in this interactive tutorial we reflect on our current approach on timing in testing, investigate and discuss needed strategies, tactics, and practices in different areas, and share experiences and lessons learned to improve timing in testing – because it is time to act now!

Some of the areas in testing that are covered in the tutorial are:

  • When to do what kind of testing in the lifecycle – agile, lean, DevOps, and beyond
  • Testing too early vs. too late – risks and opportunities
  • Test automation and the test pyramid – shift-left, shift-right
  • When to stop testing – test exit criteria
  • Repetition in testing – regression testing

Agile Requirements Engineering - Best Practices
Agile Requirements Engineering - Best Practices

This tutorial introduces to agile requirements engineering. The half day delivers practical guidance from our projects across different industries. While being based on the IREB agile RE primer curriculum, it has more practical focus and avoids agile basics and theory. Yet, participants are eligible to IREB certification. We give practical tips for designing agile requirements processes. Attendees will learn how to combine needs of systematic requirements engineering with agile principles. Special focus is given to connect RE with agile project management and with testing. A hands-on case study shows practical usage of agile RE.

Target Audience: Project Managers, Architects, Analysts, Requirements Engineers, Product Owners, Software Engineers
Prerequisites: None
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract
Agile projects need agile requirements engineering. Innovations in increasingly complex systems under cost pressure and in global competition demand for continuous alignment towards value and costs. The key to value delivery is requirements. They are no longer "collected" but must be developed in a targeted manner with suitable interest groups. Requirements are not frozen at an early stage but must be flexibly addressed throughout the project and product. However, agile requirements engineering is difficult to implement, especially in critical systems because of complex dependencies, growing quality requirements and diverse coordination processes.

Agile requirements engineering is not just a trivial priority setting. Leaving our some requirements when time and budget are scarce does not work in critical systems. Design thinking and team-based decision-making are nice for small applications, but hardly scale in larger industrial projects. Describing requirements vaguely and hoping that they become clear in the course of the project has already ruined many projects. Agile requirements engineering in critical and compliant context must combine the needs of classic requirements engineering with the flexibility of agile action.

This tutorial introduces to agile requirements engineering. It offers many practical examples from our industry projects when introducing agility. The training considers the IREB agile RE primer curriculum, however with more practical focus from many agile projects across industries. Participants are eligible to IREB certification. We give practical tips for designing agile requirements processes.

This begins with a value-oriented elaboration of the actual need. Then we look at techniques like Kano model, planning poker, design thinking, Kanban etc. In an industry case study, we present experiences and benefits of agile requirements engineering in a medical technology project with Siemens Healthineers. In particular, we use concrete examples and industry experience to show how agile requirements engineering is implemented in practice. This allowed us to reduce the costs for reworking by about 30%. The experience gained can be transferred to other projects and environments.

As a product manager or project manager, you will learn how to merge systematic requirements engineering with agile principles. As a successful requirements engineer or system analyst, you will learn how to use and scale agile techniques for requirements engineering.

Limitiert Security Games – Playfully Improve your Security
Security Games – Playfully Improve your Security

Security is an important topic, especially when developing software. But it is seen as complex and is holding everyone back, often put off until the end and delegated to an external person or group.

To be effective security needs to be a continuous part of the development process and to involve the whole team.

Security games can help to achieve this. They involve the whole team and facilitate the learning and application of security principles. They offer a way to integrate expert knowledge and make security less scary, maybe even fun.

Maximum number of participants: 50

Target Audience: Architects, Developers, Project Leaders, Testers, Security Experts
Prerequisites: General interest in security, basic development experience
Level: Basic

Claudius Link is working in IT since 1994 in roles from system and network administration, support, software development, development manager to information security officer.

Limitiert Can We Leverage The Agile Manifesto To Reduce Our Carbon Footprint?
Can We Leverage The Agile Manifesto To Reduce Our Carbon Footprint?

Do you know that some forecasts project that in 2030 IT will account for 21% of all energy consumption? So, if we do not change the way we implement software, we will contribute to the increase in the carbon footprint. This means it is about time to take another look at how agile development can help decrease energy consumption.

In this workshop, we'll explore how the agile principles can guide us to more sustainability, and we'll provide you with concrete ideas for increasing sustainability in your product development.

Maximum number of participants: 100

Target Audience: Developers, Managers, Scrum Master, Product Owners, Coaches, ...
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge in agile would be helpful
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract
The Agile Manifesto captures "better ways of developing software" yet, could this better way also take the environmental, economic, and social footprints of your software into account?

Software lifecycle creates direct and indirect carbon emissions: it has a footprint, worsening environmental problems. So, this session tries to provide the first answers to "how can the agile principles contribute to or guide sustainability?" In this workshop, we want to examine how the principles of the Agile Manifesto can provide guidance for implementing sustainability in IT.

In this workshop, we will explore the impact of the agile principles on sustainability, and how a greater awareness can change our current way of working for providing our contribution to addressing climate change.

Organizational Agility in a Post-Pandemic World
Organizational Agility in a Post-Pandemic World

How will organizations keep agility alive after their initial agile transformation? The question of what happens if agile becomes daily business is even more intriguing in this post-pandemic COVID era. Will AGILE survive these unparalleled insecure times? Participants in this workshop will explore what is needed to sustainably ‘safeguard’ an enterprise agile delivery culture after the initial ‘agile transformation’. The workshop hosts will share their observations of working in a big financial organization and will invite participants to share theirs so that collectively, we can gain insight and define potential countermeasures.

Target Audience: Anyone interested in transformational agility challenges, e.g. Change Lead, Coach, BusArchitect
Prerequisites: None
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract
Participants in this workshop will explore what is needed to move forward after the initial ‘agile transformation’, to sustainably ‘safeguard’ an enterprise agile delivery culture. The question of what happens if agile becomes daily business is even more intriguing in this post-pandemic COVID era. How will organizations keep agility alive after their initial agile transformation? When organizational systems come under too much pressure; how ‘VUCA’* resistant are our agile enterprise cultures?
Lieke Jansen and Eric Abelen are senior Agile Enterprise Coaches at ING in the Netherlands. They both contributed to ING's Spotify inspired, big-scale transformation towards an agile way of working, some seven years ago. As of then, they have successfully coached a wide variety of departments and organizations within ING to adopt and sustain an effective healthy agile delivery culture. Being key players of a massive enterprise agile transformation, they also observe some challenges related to upkeep of the resulting way of working. Because people come and go, and in our VUCA world business and process change is frequent. What options do we have in this reality of ongoing change to keep the ‘agile enterprise culture’ strong and resilient?
Also, in the Covid pandemic we learned that people and organizations can respond to change quickly, especially those organizations that adopted a culture of agility. But after a period of unparalleled social restrictions, how does this affect our agile corporate cultures? Has the trauma of the pandemic infected us with a renewed urge to feel ‘in control’ of the future and has this irrevocably injured our appetite for organic growth and agility?
In this workshop we will explore this interesting and urgent question together with you. We will share key observations from experience working with a wide variety of delivery and leadership teams and their related organizational structures. We hope that workshop participants are willing to add their observations and experiences to ours. In interactive dialogue sessions we hope to collectively engage in sense-making and to define basic anti-patterns and growth-paths.
( * VUCA = Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity)

Eric Abelen is Enterprise Agile Coach at ING Netherlands with agile transformation lead experience in ING's Support functions, HR, and (IT driven) delivery organizations. Eric's professional profile is that of Agile Coach, Lean Consultant, Business Manager, Process Manager, and Program/Change Manager. Before joining ING, he helped the Customer Care and Logistics organizations of Hewlett-Packard to adopt global ways of working.

From Practice to Patterns: How to Successfully Drive an Agile Transformation
From Practice to Patterns: How to Successfully Drive an Agile Transformation

What have we learnt from the transformations in large companies? And how can that help you improving your chances for success?

The DACH30 group is a workgroup of experienced transformation drivers and coaches from over 30 large companies across different industries. One sub-workgroup has been working on these two questions and we recently published our findings.

In this workshop we will share our transformation experiences and work out with you on patterns, that have proven to be helpful in driving agile transformations successfully.

Target Audience:
Leaders especially on executive level and organizational development coaches
Prerequisites: Experiences in driving an agile transformation in a large organization
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract

As internal Agile Transformation Coaches from large enterprises we have been supporting quite a number of transformations in various contexts. And as members of a workgroup for Business Agility we were asking ourselves „What can we learn from the different company transformations in the different markets and branches with different cultures? Is there anything they have in common?“ We were quite thrilled to identify some principles and helpful insights and learnings based on success and failures which we found applicable to most of the transformations.

To provide inspiration for others, executives and leaders especially, we summarized these principles and learnings in a Transformation Travel Guide for Growing Adaptive Organizations, including a Travel Map, Travel Tips and also some exemplary Travel Routes based on real-life case studies.

In this session we will provide an overview on the Travel Guide and some deeper insights into learnings from two Transformation Journeys. Study.

Our focus is not on scaling Agile working but rather on achieving Agility on an enterprise level. Hence we are not only looking towards Agile but rather at various methods, thinking models, and techniques in order to find the right approach for specific business problems to solve and for developing organizational towards more adaptivity and resilience.

We are a smaller group from the DACH30 Initiative working on ‚Growing Adaptive Organizations’. growing-adaptive-organizations.org

Agile Games – Creating Business Impact
Agile Games – Creating Business Impact

(Agile) Games are sounding throughout the land. Everyone plays games and anyone guides games. However, what makes playing games "interesting" from the business owner's perspective? 

We look into the criteria of effectiveness and efficiency of games and thus the capabilities of creating business impact for the company.

As such, it turns out a game - is just a game and remains a play if one does not align with underlying business needs. Sounds familiar? But you wonder how to do so?

In this talk, we will look in a 4-Step-Modelmaking the obvious tangible. And in the end, it becomes a structured approach how one might create business impact too.

Target Audience: Moderators, (young) Scrum Masters, Project Leaders, Managers, Decision-Makers, Facilitators
Prerequisites: General understanding of games and agility, and how to lead games successfully
Level: Basic

Improving Your Quality and Testing Skills with Gamification
Improving Your Quality and Testing Skills with Gamification

So many challenges, so little time. As testers or quality engineers, we need to sharpen the saw, but how? Gamification can be a way to look at how you're doing and find out where to improve. It's a great way to have everyone engaged and get the best out of people.

In this presentation, Ben Linders will show how playing games (onsite or online) with the Agile Testing Coaching Cards and Agile Quality Coaching Cards help to explore your current quality and testing practice and decide as a team on what to improve or experiment with.

Target Audience: Testers, Agile Teams, Tech Leads, Technical Coaches, Scrum Masters
Prerequisites: None
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract

The Agile Testing Coaching Cards and Agile Quality Coaching Cards are a deck of cards with statements that help people to share and reflect. Examples of cards are "Testers help developers design acceptance criteria for user stories", "Failing tests get proper attention even when no defect in the product has been detected", and "Refactoring is done to keep code maintainable and reduce technical debt".

Playing games with these coaching cards (onsite or online), you can learn from each other. Teams can use the coaching cards to discuss quality and testing values, principles, and practices, and share their experiences and learnings.

Different game formats can be used to share experiences on testing and quality principles and practices and explore how they can be applied effectively. The playing formats from the Agile Self-assessment Game (benlinders.com/game) can be used to play with these cards. This presentation provides an overview of playing formats and will inspire you to come up with your own formats.

Facilitation is key when playing with these coaching cards. Ben Linders will present how to prepare a game session and facilitate it, what can be done to keep people engaged, and how debriefing can help to pull out learnings and ideas for improvement.

Takeaways:

- Show how to use gamification to self-assess your current way of working.

- Present examples of playing games with the Agile Testing Coaching Cards and Agile Quality Coaching Cards.

- Explore how facilitating games can help to enhance quality and testing in agile teams.

Und jetzt das Ganze noch mal in Grün: Wie wir mit Agile die Welt retten könnten

Wollen wir unseren Enkeln eine lebenswerte Welt hinterlassen, müssen wir das grundlegende Paradigma unseres Wirtschaftssystems umbauen: Weg vom ausbeuterischen Wirtschaften, hin zu einem regenerativen, demokratischeren und inklusiven Wirtschaften.

Der Vortrag ist ein Plädoyer dafür, nicht auf Politiker, Konzernchefs oder ein Wunder zu warten, sondern selbstbewusst aktiv zu werden. Wir stellen erste Ansätze vor, wie Agilität konkret genutzt werden kann, um den Umbau der Wirtschaft in Angriff zu nehmen.

Zielpublikum: Manager:innen, Entscheider:innen, Projektleiter, Teamleiter, ...
Voraussetzungen: Fachkenntnisse agiler Methoden,
Schwierigkeitsgrad: Fortgeschritten

Extended Abstract

Vor über 20 Jahren entstand das agile Manifest, das eine radikal neue Arbeitsweise für die Software-Entwicklung proklamierte. Was damals von vielen belächelt wurde, ist heute auch außerhalb der Software-Entwicklung gang und gäbe. Wir haben gesehen, dass agiles Arbeiten Teams effektiver machen und damit das Leben von Menschen positiv beeinflussen kann. Doch auch wenn sich das „Wie“ des Arbeitens verändert hat: Neue Geschäftsmodelle sind dadurch kaum entstanden.

Heute stehen wir jedoch vor einer neuen, ungleich größeren Herausforderung. Wenn wir unseren Kindern und Enkeln eine lebenswerte Welt hinterlassen wollen, müssen wir das grundlegende Paradigma unseres Wirtschaftssystems umbauen: Weg vom ausbeuterischen Wirtschaften, das Finanzmittel konzentriert und massive Ungleichheit erzeugt, hin zu einem regenerativen, demokratischeren und inklusiven Wirtschaften.

Die Sache ist: Einerseits weiß kaum jemand genau, wie nachhaltige Geschäftsmodelle tatsächlich aussehen müssen, welche Technologien noch entstehen und sich durchsetzen werden. Andererseits läuft uns die Zeit davon. Es herrscht Unsicherheit, gepaart mit Zeitdruck.

Genau das ist doch das ursprüngliche Spielfeld agiler Denk- und Arbeitsweisen! Gerade die Community hält alle Tools in den Händen, mit denen Unternehmen regenerative Geschäftsmodelle entwickeln können, die sogar wirtschaftlicher sind als die existierenden. Lasst uns doch die Zukunft gemeinsam gestalten, so wie wir es vor 20 Jahren schon mal gemacht haben. Arbeiten wir mit Unternehmen und Menschen, die diesen Planeten durch enkelfähiges Business erhalten wollen!

Der Vortrag ist ein Plädoyer dafür, nicht auf Politiker, Konzernchefs oder ein Wunder zu warten, sondern selbstbewusst aktiv zu werden. Wir stellen erste Ansätze vor, wie Agilität konkret genutzt werden kann, um den Umbau der Wirtschaft in Angriff zu nehmen.

Quality Engineering Instead of Testing… Why? How?
Quality Engineering Instead of Testing… Why? How?

To continuously deliver IT systems at speed with a focus on business value, high-performance IT delivery teams integrate quality engineering in their way of working.

Quality engineering is the new concept in achieving the right quality of IT systems. Testing only after an IT product was developed is an outdated approach. Built-in quality from the start is needed to guarantee business value in today’s IT delivery models. Quality engineering is about changes in skills, organization, automation and quality measures.

Target Audience: All people involved in high-performance IT delivery teams
Prerequisites: General knowledge of IT delivery
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract

To continuously deliver IT systems at speed with a focus on business value, high-performance cross-functional IT delivery teams integrate quality engineering in their way of working.

Quality engineering is the new concept in achieving the right quality of IT systems. Testing an application only after the digital product has been fully developed has long been a thing of the past. More is needed to guarantee the quality of applications that are delivered faster and more frequently in today’s high-performance IT delivery models. It is about achieving built-in quality. The road to quality engineering means changes in terms of starting points, skills, organization, automation and quality measures.

Our new VOICE model guides teams to align their activities with the business value that is pursued, and by measuring indicators, teams give the right information to stakeholders to establish their confidence that the IT delivery will actually result in business value for the customers.

Teams benefit from the clear definition of QA&Testing topics that are a useful grouping of all activities relevant to quality engineering. Organizing topics are relevant to align activities between teams and performing topics have a focus on the operational activities within a team.

Also, to be able to deliver quality at speed, for today’s teams it is crucial to benefit from automating activities, for example in a CI/CD pipeline, whereby people must remember that automation is not the goal but just a way to increase quality and speed.

In this presentation the audience will learn why a broad view on quality engineering is important and how quality engineering can be implemented to achieve the right quality of IT products, the IT delivery process and the people involved.

This presentation is based on our new book "Quality for DevOps teams" (ISBN 978-90-75414-89-9) which supports high-performance cross-functional teams in implementing quality in their DevOps culture, with practical examples, useful knowledge and some theoretical background.

Rik Marselis is principal quality consultant at Sogeti in the Netherlands. He is a well-appreciated presenter, trainer, author, consultant, and coach in the world of quality engineering. His presentations are always appreciated for their liveliness, his ability to keep the talks serious but light, and his use of practical examples with humorous comparisons.

Impact Assessment 101 to 301: From Beginner to Journeyman

In large software projects the assessment of the impact of a code change can be a cumbersome task. If the software has grown and shows an evolutionary design there are always unwanted side effects.

Change control boards are established. But on what data do they judge what can happen with the changes? Very often there is the HIPPO syndrome which means it is the highest paid person's opinion.

In this talk we will show you ways to come to a deterministic prediction of the impact, what data you need and what you can do with it.

Target Audience:
Architects, Test Managers, Developers, Testers
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of collected data in software projects
Level: Advanced

The CTO Guide on How to Build a Successful Product Development Organization
The CTO Guide on How to Build a Successful Product Development Organization

This talk describes how to build and run a successful product development organization that delivers business value, not just features. I will cover what makes effective product development teams, how to structure, loosely couple, align and choreograph them, especially in larger organisations with up to 100 teams. Methods I will talk about include OKRs and Kanban Flight Levels. In this context I will also show when and how decentralised product teams can benefit from centralised platforms.

Target Audience: CTO, Manager, Decision Makers
Prerequisites: Experience with software development at scale
Level: Advanced

CANCELATION: Embrace Uncertainty, And Reality Will Hug You Back
CANCELATION: Embrace Uncertainty, And Reality Will Hug You Back

Unfortunately, the session is cancelled without replacement.

We live in an uncertain world that seems to shift and transform by the second. How can our software teams ever be effective when the ground is shifting below their feet?

While the discomfort of uncertainty and chaos may well make us feel uncomfortable, even fearful. It's precisely where the value in most of our projects lies.

In this session we'll explore how to embrace uncertainty and deliver the right things at the right time. Even when it seems hard to pin down what the right thing is and when it's needed!

Target Audience: Agile Coaches, Product Managers, Product Owners, Project Managers
Prerequisites: Some experience with the application of agility to a team or organisation.
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract
We liv in an uncertain world that seems to shift and transform by the second. How can our software teams ever be effective when the ground is shifting below their feet?

While the discomfort of uncertainty and chaos may well make us feel uncomfortable, even fearful. It's precisely where the value in most of our projects lies.

In this session we'll explore how to embrace uncertainty and deliver the right things at the right time. Even when it seems hard to pin down what the right thing is and when it's needed!

  • How to make your work board (virtual or real) a tool to support group problem solving and collaboration.
  • How to use story mapping to plan work and understand the level of uncertainty.
  • How to use projections to help with prioritisation and planning.
  • Why having a language to discuss uncertainty is so important.
  • This tutorial is for anyone wanting to better prioritise their teams' work, respond effectively to an ever changing environment and deliver value.
John Le Drew has spent most of the last 2 decades working in the software industry, with a focus on web echnologies. After 10 years as a software engineer John moved into consultancy where he quickly learned the value of team dynamics and how most technical challenges are projecting underlying issues with collaboration. So his focus shifted, while still being very involved technically, his first focus is on facilitating a safe, creative, collaborative environment.
