Processes Help, People Rock!

There is solid evidence that large-scale software development projects are inherently difficult. As project managers, as companies and as a society, we should look for ways to do better. Good processes, including agile processes, can help us. However, having excellent people on a project continuously is what really matters. As an effect, being able to recruit excellent people and keep them on board become essential. For this talk, I will discuss some aspects of processes and the people who create and use them, and in particular the interplay between processes and people. of the presentation is in the making.

Teaming with Features in the Future

As a Scrum Master, I have had the joy of being a part of a team that successfully developed and launched a social app with millions of downloads in less than six months.  That was only possible because we were backed up 100% by the organization and had all essentials near at hand.

But how do you keep up pace and minimize “time to market” after that first successful delivery when you get back to the daily grind and reality hits?

How do you keep teams challenged, motivated and engaged after the “high” of the launch?

We had a retrospective and decided to make the switch to feature teams. It is looking good, but it hasn’t been a walk in the park…
