Product Development Flow – How To Scale Beyond 20 Developers

Time: 14:30 - 15:30
Talk: Mi 4.3


Product development is pretty much jammed up in most organisations beyond 20 and adding more developers or teams to the company often results in slow down and chaos. Like a car that chokes when hitting the accelerator. But there are rare examples, where teams collaborate and produce a regular and scalable output of new features. This can only be achieved by radically re-organising, ensuring management collaboration and distributing responsibilities to experts. And by forgetting most of the old and dysfunctional management paradigms.

Target Audience: Management in Product Development and IT and also future Management. And everryone...
