In this workshop, participants will roleplay fictive situations in groups of +/- 7 people.
- divided in groups
- everyone gets a random set of reaction cards (same as number of people in the group
- one person (disturber of the peace) selects a situation card
- the disturber acts out the situation
- everyone in the group selects a way to react and plays that.
- everyone gives their reaction card back
- disturber gives feedback about what the reactions do to them
- repeat until everyone has played a disturbing situation
- Debrief at the end
The game was invited by Yattom
It exists in Japanese, Korean, English, Dutch, French. (if people want to help we can create a German version for the conference)
Target Audience: Team Members
Yves Hanoulle (he/him) discovered extreme programming in 1999. Over the years, he realised that creating working software takes collaborating over writing code. Just like coaching is asking questions over sharing ideas.
As an independent consultant since 1998, Yves works with people around the globe.
Yves calls himself a FireStarter, an agile Instigator, or a Creative Collaboration Agent. Agile friends joke about the Six degrees of agile with Yves at the centre.
Henning (OO to the core) and Mike (ferociously FP) agree on all the fundamentals of software architecture, but when it comes to designing models, they can't seem to find common ground.
OO and FP folks like to congratulate themselves on how well they go together - and how OO languages are accreting one feature after another from the FP world.
Henning and Mike will highlight how OO and FP approaches to design differ, and offer possible approaches to unifying both for mutual gain and insight.
Target Audience: Architects, Developers
Prerequisites: Experience in OO or FP
Much work remains to unify these two worlds:
- OO folks are weary of premature abstractions, whereas FP folks tend to abstract early.
- While both camps prefer operation-rich models, the approaches to designing these operations are incompatible. Specifically, the BDD and TDD approaches favored by the OO folks are incompatible with the design recipes approach preferred by the functional camp.
- Paradoxically, OO - which is supposed to be about objects - espouses BDD which is about functions, whereas FP has a rich tradition in data design, i.e. objects.
- In OO, objects populate the domain, and they are encapsulated and thus isolated, whereas in FP this encapsulation is an emergent (or not emergent) phenomenon.
- OO is inherently stateful, and FP is inherently stateless. This naturally leads to very different approaches to interface design, and more importantly, to the use of types.

Expanding horizons has many facets. It means taking advantage of new opportunities that arise from technical progress, such as Large Language Models, or societal challenges like Sustainability. Expanding horizons also means taking responsibility. AI and data analytics have a direct impact on our future life, good and bad. Expanding horizons also means reflection on existing practice. We have perhaps forgotten the benefits of structured monoliths, or have sometimes overdone it with agility, which suggests a critical and learning retrospective.
Moderation: Frank Buschmann
Panelists: Isabel Bär, Sarah Hsu, Carola Lilienthal, Larysa Visengeriyeva
Target Audience: Software Practitioners
The motto of OOP 2024 has many facets. Expanding horizons means understanding and taking advantage of new opportunities that arise from technological progress or societal challenges. For example, on Large Language Models, Sustainability, and the Metaverse. Expanding horizons also means taking responsibility and not blindly applying new technologies. For example, AI and data analytics have a direct impact on our future life and social interaction. With all the consequences, good and bad. But broadening horizons also means reflecting on existing technologies and practices. In the course of the euphoria about microservices, for example, we have perhaps forgotten the advantages of the structured monolith too much, or have sometimes overdone it with agility. A critical and learning retrospective seems appropriate.
In this panel, we will examine the various aspects of the motto of OOP 2024 to give us all meaningful guiding thoughts for the exciting journey to expanding our horizons.

- How to change current PdM practices to work with digital technologies and digital offerings?
- What is the future of PdM practices and what are the key characteristics of digital product management?
Target Audience: Product Managers, Software-Architects, Software Engineers, R&D Management
Prerequisites: No specific technology expertise required.

Sustainable success for agile in the large needs leaders to shift their focus from managing people to managing the system so that people can thrive.
This session builds on our successful OOP 2023 session ("Pragmatic Scaling to Business Agility: Crafting Organisations for Innovation where People can Thrive") by:
- Focussing on how leadership should be different in an agile organisation.
- Sharing experiences of applying the model with real clients.
Participants will assess their own leadership and identify "nudges" for developing further.
Target Audience: Leaders, Agile Coaches, Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Managers
Prerequisites: Practical experience with one or more agile frameworks
This interactive workshop presents a pragmatic approach for scaling agile. The approach is based on five shifts needed in typical organisations to get agile to work well at scale. It guides how to find the right balance for each shift, using the current context of the organisation. In this way it not only presents the end state, but also the possible steps to implement each shift.
At OOP 2023, we facilitated a successful interactive 90-minute session entitled "Pragmatic Scaling to Business Agility: Crafting Organisations for Innovation where People can Thrive".
This introduced 5-shifts that organisations can make to help agile to thrive. Participants assessed their organisations against the shifts and identified "nudges" to develop their agile approach.
This proposal builds on that session by:
- Zooming in on how leadership should be different in an agile organisation.
- Sharing experiences and stories of applying the model with real clients.
The workshop will provide participants with insights into the future of leadership and leadership in a scaled agile environment.
They will also apply the model to their own context or a context they are familiar with and identify options for their future growth as agile leaders.
