Tracks of
Topconf Linz 2017:

roles, craftmanship, management, direct communication, stakeholders, developers, customers

We want self organizing teams. We want direct communication channels between all stakeholders - developers, ops, customers, users. We want no hurdles or gates so our developers can optimize flow. How does management fit into this picture? The role of managers is shifting. Instead of managing the day-to-day work, we have to lead by setting goals. We have to encourage teams to use good development practices - without coercing them. We have to enable craftsmanship and pride in our work. Management does fit into this picture - But its role is changing. More

In this track, you will learn how agile teams learn, improve and produce in their day-to-day work. More
