Business and Technical Agility with Team Topologies

Organizations that do not adapt rapidly to the modern, highly-changeable business and technical environment are failing, and failing in large numbers. Increased regulation,
pressures from climate change, shifting of energy sources, digitalization, cloud-native, and (recently) the COVID-19 pandemic are all driving a need for business and technical agility in organizations of all sizes.

In this talk, we’ll explore how the patterns and principles from Team Topologies promote true business and technical agility through a rapid flow of software change, fast feedback from running systems, a strong drive for loose coupling, and awareness of sociotechnical mirroring. Combined with a product mindset and techniques from Domain-driven Design, the Team Topologies approach is helping organizations around the world to adapt to the “new normal” and achieve true business and technical agility.
