The world is changing fast. More precisely, the world is changing at increasing speed. This means things that were not possible five years ago come into reach. Incumbent organizations need to adapt fast to keep up with new competitors that use new technologies easier, faster and better than they do. As a result, every aspect of software changes towards smaller. Even smaller teams or even micro-teams, less management, flatter organizations, even shorter cycles, and smaller components.

During this energizing and high-paced talk Sander discusses the Cynefin model, shows why software development goes so terribly wrong, how to move beyond Scrum and enterprise agile, why self-organization is not as easy as it looks like, why continuous delivery leads to not doing projects or estimates anymore and why microservices are hard but essential as underlying foundation.

What will the audience learn from this talk?
Attendees will see that many organization have trouble surviving disruptive markets requires them to move beyond traditional agile principles and values. During this talk, we will investigate new issues in modern organizations, such as distributed teams, difficult commutes, the increasing complexity of our industry, and how to organize beyond agile in collectives and microteams.
