Speaker pitch
As a software engineering team, we want to solve complex business problems in the most efficient way possible. We invest a lot in technology to improve our team flow and try to make our technology process sustainable. We’ve got quite compulsive about automation and autonomy in achieving this. However, we are still tribal creatures that require tribal safety. Which means that if we want to make our technology process sustainable, we must also invest in people. For that, we need to tackle social-technical complexity in the heart of our team.
In this session, Evelyn and Kenny will introduce you to the concept of social-technical systems. We will explain what social-technical complexity we are facing when building software to improve our team flow. How you can get a sense of the type of complexity you’re dealing with by using the Cynefin framework. Cynefin can aid your decision making process by helping you make less biased decisions on how to approach your software development flow with your team. Finally, we’ll show you how visual collaboration tools like EventStorming and many others that can help you visualise complexity. You will leave this session knowing how to start tackling social-technical complexity in your team. Making sure you create a sustainable technology process for your team flow!
Why did we choose it ?
We like Conway's law as we like social-technical complexity. It's about creating bridges between practices like organization and craftswomanship.
