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.

PANEL DISCUSSION

Panel: The True Bottleneck in Software Engineering - Cognitive Load

In software development, our job is not typing. Our job is making decisions. It is what we type that matters, and what we can glean from the computer's response. The core limitation of our work is how much we can know: how much we can hold in our heads, and how quickly we can learn. This panel will tackle this tough topic from three perspectives:

  • Jean Yang is the CEO of Akita Software, which produced insight into the complexity of our systems, instead of abstracting over it.
  • Manuel Pais is an author of Team Topologies, the bestselling book on how to organize our teams for maximum collaboration effectiveness (NOT maximum collaboration).
  • Artemis Starr wrote the book Idea Flow; she studies the intellectual workload we experience while coding.  

Come for validation of how this work is. Leave with ideas on how to work more effectively.
