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.

How to Enable all Voices of Your Organization – Triggering Collaborative Insight & Action
How to Enable all Voices of Your Organization – Triggering Collaborative Insight & Action

Diversity in organizations can be a challenge or a wealth of potential. You choose - but how? In this session we'll offer you solid perspectives, concrete tools and examples, so you will be better enabled, how to foster deep, also challenging, but definitely fruitful collaboration across your organization.

Target Audience: Managers, HR Leads, Change Agents, Coaches
Prerequisites: Interest in Leadership, Collaboration, Organizational Change
Level: Basic

Extended Abstract
Exponential change, globalization, an increase in interdependence, complexity has put societies, but also organizations at the edge of known territory. Diversity has become a challenge and requirement at the same time. Leading under such conditions requires a different set of perspectives. Organizations need new skills and tools to overcome these obstacles.
In order to enable the growth of diversity in any organization, it very much helps gain an understanding what makes the system(s) of this organization tick. For meaningful action to happen, whatever your position (formal leader or inspired change agent), you will create a space, where voices (especially marginalized ones) can be heard, get into conversation, so to gain deeper insights and more awareness. This is the soil for new ideas and more effective solutions to overcome the pressing challenges, every organization is confronted with.
This session will provide a solid combination of sound concepts, tools and examples, how to overcome the challenges of a siloed organization, how to overcome domination of single voices, how to overcome unskillful conflict behavior. We will offer the audience concrete and immediately actionable practices, they can use for fostering dialog between small and larger groups in their organizations. Last but not least, they will walk away with a self assessment questionnaire, providing first insight on their own views and behaviors.

Jenseits Micro-Frontends: Der Frontend-Modulith

Micro-Frontends eigenen sich nicht in allen Szenarien! Diese Session stellt einen alternativen Ansatz vor: Frontend-Modulithen. Wir besprechen das Abbilden fachlicher Domänen, die Kategorisierung von Bibliotheken sowie Zugriffseinschränkungen zum Erzwingen entkoppelter Teilsysteme. Außerdem nutzen wir inkrementelle Builds und einen Build Cache zur drastischen Beschleunigung des CI-Prozesses. Am Ende wissen Sie, ob Frontend-Modulithen für Sie der richtige Ansatz sind und wie Sie Ihre Anwendungen damit aufbauen.

Applications Instead of Libraries: Micro Frontends Implemented Through Module Federation

Imagine you have an enterprise frontend monolith. Due to explosive growth, around 30 teams work on it, with about 100 different use cases. How do you keep this system scalable and consistent?
That's the question we faced inside Partner Home at Wayfair. I'm going to share our experience implementing a micro frontend architecture based on React to distribute shared concerns as long-lived applications. We used module federation, a new feature in Webpack 5.
I'll talk about the general architecture, plus an overview of our technical solution.

Orchestrating Collaboration at Different Levels of Scale
Orchestrating Collaboration at Different Levels of Scale

Orchestrating the work of hundreds or thousands of people working at different locations around the world presents a set of challenges specific to that kind of context. It is not simply a matter of “scaling up", we need to understand underlying principles and patterns and make them work. With this session we invite you into a conversation about how to improve the way leaders and teams collaborate in our organizations. You will experience a workshop that you can reproduce for your organisation to create supporting structures that scale

Target Audience: Thinkers, Decision Makers, Architects, Managers, Coaches, Scrum Masters, Product Owners
Prerequisites: Curiosity and some experience in working in large organisations
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract
Orchestrating the work of hundreds or thousands of people working at different locations around the world presents a set of challenges specific to that kind of context. It is not simply a matter of “scaling up” what works for orchestrating the work of a small number of co-located people, or even a small number of distributed teams. The specific practices necessary for success will vary and evolve. Variety of practice is essential to creating successful outcomes.
There is a useful set of underlying principles and patterns that we bring to our work. They enable us to create a wide variety of context-aware practices that serve the needs of the people in our organizations, and support them in collaborating to create value for our customers.
With this session we invite you into a conversation about how to improve the way leaders and teams collaborate in our organizations. We will look at teams’ needs regarding autonomy, leadership, and support, and at leaders’ needs regarding strategy, challenges, and responsibility. One specific theme we explore in this session is that of the relationships between leaders and teams, and how we leverage those relationships to orchestrate work and outcomes.
Through this session you will experience a workshop that you can reproduce for your organisation. We will share our setup guides, tools, and materials with you so that you can create supporting structures to more effectively orchestrate collaboration at different scales in your organization.

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.

Collaborative Modelling Domain Boundaries
Collaborative Modelling Domain Boundaries

Within DDD we have the perspective of strategic design where we can split a large-system into multiple sub-domains, each having its purpose and responsibilities, where teams can work in autonomous, clean bounded contexts. One of the most effective ways to define these boundaries is by collaborative modelling with all the stakeholders involved in these domains. Join us were we share war stories about our experience doing collaborative modelling in several companies with 30+ people.

Target Audience: Architects, Manager, Decision Makers, Tech Leads
Prerequisites: None
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract
As a business, we want to make sure our software can handle changes when the business changes. We want to define boundaries that support the flow of the business value. Within Domain-Driven Design we have the perspective of strategic design. A perspective where we can split a large-system into multiple sub-domains, each having its purpose and responsibilities. Within these sub-domains, teams can work in autonomous, clean bounded contexts. One of the most effective ways to define these boundaries is by collaborative modelling with all the stakeholders involved in these domains. But that poses real challenges: What exactly is the definition of a (sub)domain? What is problem space? How can we form a common language of these boundaries? How does a customer journey fit in? And how do you decide and come to a single model in a large group, where everyone shares that same model on a high level?
Join us in this talk where we will show and tell war stories about our experience of having done collaborative modelling in several companies. We will tell our successes, but more importantly our failures and what we learned from them. What are the key heuristics we think that makes a collaborative modelling session with 30+ people, without any DDD knowledge, succeed? What are the skills we need to learn to facilitate it, and how can we make a company not dependent on us as consultants to continue their journey? You will leave with the knowledge of how to start your own collaborative modelling of your domain boundaries. We tell you our definition of (sub)domains, problems and solution space, and how we explained it to the companies we consulted. Providing you with new perspectives on how to embed this as a ritual in your company.

Facilitating Collaborative Design Decisions

If we want to make sustainable design decisions for our architecture that are embraced by everyone, the most effective way is to do this collaboratively. It is hard to do because we need to deal with all sorts of group dynamics that cause people to stop sharing what they want, ending up in resistance behaviour from sarcastic jokes, to stopped communication. So how can we make collaborative design decisions better? Join us in this hands-on workshop where we explore different models of decision making.

Maximum number of participants: 24

Target Audience: Architects, Managers, Decision Makers
Prerequisites: None
Level: Expert

Extended Abstract
If we want to make sustainable design decisions for our architecture that are embraced by everyone, the most effective way is to do this collaboratively. Everyone can feel a part of the decision, and can potentially give the input they have. The group is aligned and knows what is to be expected onward. On paper this sounds great, but in reality we know it is hard to do because we need to deal with all sorts of group dynamics. Dynamics like cultural differences, conflicts of opinions, cognitive biases, and polarities that the group are part of. These dynamics cause people to stop sharing what they want, which ends up in resistance behaviour from sarcastic jokes, to stopped communication or leaving the session. No wonder a lot of people resort to a more autocratic form of decision making, where the architect analyzes and makes the decision. So how can we make collaborative design decisions better?

Join Gien, Evelyn and Kenny in this hands-on workshop where we explore different models of decision making that can help facilitate collaborative design decisions. We will dive into a variety of facilitation techniques such as:

  • Working with climate reports to trigger hidden group conflicts
  • Visualising trade-offs of different models with the pro-con-fix list
  • Taking group decisions with full buy in with Deep Democracy
Leveraging Deep Democracy, Domain-Driven Design, Continuous Delivery and visual collaborate tools, Kenny Baas-Schwegler empowers organisations, teams and people in building valuable software products.
