Keynote : Product Management for Continuous Delivery
Speaker pitch
Continuous Delivery can be a hard sell to product managers, even in small, healthy organisations. The benefits sound implausible, the costs high, and it’s really hard to understand all that it enables. However, CD has been hugely beneficial at the leading edge of product management.
As deployment pipelines have taken root, there has also been a shift in how we see and measure user value. Take these trends together, and there’s been a giant leap forwards in how to prioritise work and judge its success.
When our teams at ORG stopped throwing features into a black hole, and instead closed the loop with feedback, it had surprising knock-on effects. Come to this session and find out more!

Why did we choose it ?
Because continuous delivery is not only about delivering fast with a good quality, that's also about deliverying the right thing. Welcome in the continuous delivery of value.

The Importance of Fun in the Workplace
Speaker pitch
An in-depth look at what makes software development a roller coaster where the highs of 0 compiler warnings are quickly cancelled out by the pain of long hours, bad requirements, endless configuration, clueless managers and a plethora of other issues which make death by a thousand cuts seem like a good idea….
They will answer questions such as: “Why is programming often called an art despite having its underpinnings in formal logic?” “How can I rediscover the delight I felt when I first started coding?” “What’s that rush I feel when my test passes? Am I addicted to TDD?”
Combining Psychology, Philosophy and Computer Science, Dr Holly Cummins will present a series of practical tips to help you rediscover the euphoria that you felt the very first time a metal box in front of you came to life and cried out “Hello World”.

Why did we choose it ?
To start the conference with a feel good attitude. To be honest, we didn't know at this time that this session will be at the beginning of the conference. We believe that mindset and culture are as important as frameworks when we talk about software development, and this talk fits with this belief. Enjoy and have fun.

Start Up, Scale Up, Screw Up
Speaker pitch
The problem with many agile transformations is that existing methods and frameworks treat
everyone the same. They make no distinction between startups and scaleups, between
disruptive innovative ideas versus existing successful products. But starting new teams and
scaling up innovation is more important than ever. The key to a successful agile transformation
is applying different practices in different stages of the business lifecycle. What works for a new
product does not work for a mature one, and vice versa. In this talk, we will nosedive into the
major good practices for business leaders and product teams, from the moment they have an
innovative idea to the day they will scale it up (or screw it up). Your agile transformation
depends on product lifecycles, the innovation vortex, and the innovation funnel.

The topics include the Business Lifecycle, Problem/Solution Fit, Product/Market Fit, Minimum
Viable Products, Business Model Canvas, Lean Canvas, Growth Hacking, Lean Experiments,
OKRs, North Star Metric, Innovation Vortex, Empathy Maps, Lean Personas, Jobs To Be Done,
Journey Mapping, Innovation Funnels, and more.

Why did we choose it ?

To be honest, we didn't choose it, but we did choose to welcome Jurgen at Flowcon. We like the way Jurgen talk about what happen or can happen in the real life. He doesn't talk about shinny things that you can't really do, but you will be able to apply a few options, may be not on December 13th, but clearly not in 2021.

OKR @ meilleurs agents
Speaker pitch
Vous travaillez déjà en agile avec des features teams mais vous vous demandez comment aller plus loin. Comment avoir des objectifs peu nombreux mais pertinents pour votre business ? Quand choisir le bon timing pour restructurer votre équipe ? Christopher Parola, Lead PM, et Nicolas Baron, CTO @MeilleursAgents vous expliquent comment ils ont mis en place la méthode OKR et restructuré leurs équipes Produit et Tech.

Pourquoi nous l'avons choisi ?
Parce que nous pensons que les OKR peuvent être un bon outil pour relier stratégie et exécution. C'est un outil qui en théorie parait simple, mais qu'il est très facile de détourner (intentionnellement ou pas) pour en faire autre chose et donc en perdre le gain.
Nous avons donc privilégié le format retour d'expérience.

Dynamique de groupes et structuration du temps
Dynamique de groupes et structuration du temps :
la théorie organisationnelle de Berne, une autre approche agile.

Speaker pitch
De l'individu seul aux interactions de groupes, tout est échange, tout est transaction.
La théorie organisationnelle de Berne reprend l'un des concepts fondateurs de l'analyse transactionnelle, la structuration du temps.
En tant que coach, facilitateur, manager, le décryptage de ces moments de vie appliqués à l'échelle d'un groupe ou d'une organisation, donnera des clefs de compréhension pour envisager les risques encourus par les membres réunis dans cette aventure commune.
Après avoir rapidement posé les bases structurantes de l'analyse transactionnelle, nécessaires à la compréhension de tous, cette conférence présentera comment l'individu structure son temps et pourquoi, pour ensuite transposer cette structuration aux étapes par lesquelles l'individu passe pour s'intégrer dans un groupe ou une organisation.
Enfin, il s'agira de donner des perspectives sur une ébauche de diagnostic, visant à résoudre les dysfonctionnements de groupe que la structuration du temps révèle.

Pourquoi nous les avons choisi ?
Parce qu'elles ont été élues dans les meilleurs talk de Devops et que nous espérons attirer des développeurs à la conférence grâce à ça. Elles ont bien reçu de très bons feedbacks, mais c'est surtout que nous aimons mettre en avant les interactions en bons systémiciens que nous sommes. Nous avons privilégié un format intimiste avec petit groupe pour améliorer la qualité des intéractions entre oratrices et particpants.

Balancing flows in Run & Change teams
Speaker pitch
Multidisciplinary teams. A nice concept. But what if the teams are responsible for Run as well as Change? Give support on existing products and work on new projects at the same time? Can Kanban support this way of working? Yes, it can! And I can show you how. It is all about STATIK and Metrics. About making things visible. Having conversations about what delivers value. And, of course, what not. Based on implementations at, among others, Royal Schiphol Group and the Dutch Archives.

Lots of multidisciplinary teams are responsible for maintaining a product as well as for developing that exact product at the same time. Incidents, minor changes and large projects hijack valuable time of team members. Resulting in a lack of overview of the work, lack of insight in what work should prevail over other work and a constant hassle with stakeholders of the team and users of the product.

Using STATIK to understand the work, using the Kanban method to gain insight and oversight and using metrics to balance the different classes of services among each other, you can offer a solution for your teams. Which can bring back some peace and quiet in the team. Manage expectations towards stakeholders and users. Bring back the flow of value in your organization. And, last but certainly not least, have a happy team!

Why did we choose it ?
At flowcon, we love to talk about Kanban mainly because this is a "Start with what we do" approach with no silver bullet. This session will help you understand how to use Kanban in your day to day activities. By day to day, We're not only talking about run, but how to deal with build and run. Welcome in the world of classes of services.

Flow : The new world of business agility
Speaker pitch 
Flow is taking the world of agile by storm with it’s simplified framework for business agility and as a powerful antidote for those organisations who are struggling with their scaled agile implementations. Fin Goulding, Founder and CIO of his own startup the Flow Academy will show how the framework goes beyond traditional technical agile methodologies (such as Scrum) and not only encompasses business functions but also extends to Customers as well. Focusing on Customers is key, even before you start thinking about Products, and Flow actively places them within your feedback loops in order to inform your work-design and overall business strategy. Fin will also show how Flow is obsessed with being pro-value, delivers work at pace (in two-day cycles or less), is supercharged by lean software development and Cloud but also provides tangible ways to practice continuous improvement. This true end-to-end 'Business' approach is underpinned by Customer innovation/segmentation, Executive portfolio planning and a dash of cultural transformation – which is at the heart of any good agile transformation.

Why did we choose it ?
Because we are flowcon and this is the perfect place for this session. We have read Fin's book about flow and it was clear for us that we should try to welcome him at flowcon.This is both a model and practices you can use in your daily activites. This talk will help you to get a good overview of what FLOW can be. Andif you want to see the flow with another point of view, you need too to go to Al Shalloway's talk. 2019 is the year of FLOW at flowcon.

La sobriété numérique
Speaker pitch
Le développement rapide du numérique génère une augmentation forte de son empreinte énergétique directe. Cette empreinte inclut l’énergie de fabrication et d’utilisation des équipements (serveurs, réseaux, terminaux). Elle est en progression rapide, de 9 % par an. La consommation d’énergie directe occasionnée par un euro investi dans le numérique a augmenté de 37 % depuis 2010. L’intensité énergétique de l’industrie numérique augmente de 4 % par an : une hausse à contre-courant de l’évolution de l’intensité énergétique du PIB mondial, laquelle décroît actuellement de 1,8 % chaque année. L’explosion des usages vidéo (Skype, streaming, etc.) et la multiplication des périphériques numériques fréquemment renouvelés sont les principaux facteurs de cette inflation énergétique.

Pourquoi nous l'avons choisi ?
Parce que nous aimons ouvrir nos chakras avec des sessions out of the box. Nous ne cherchons pas à vous dire ce que vous devez faire, mais à vous donner d'autres points de vue, pour vous aider à choisir les options que vous souhaitez. Pour cette session, nous nous attendons cependant à ce que certaines propositions soient assez activables tout de suite.

Scaling up a tech department @ Younited Credit
Speaker Pitch
La Tech de Younited sera passée en 5 ans de 10 à 100 membres, d'un monolithe à plus de 100 microservices, d'une organisation back/front au déploiement continu par des feature teams et d'un hébergement traditionnel au cloud public. Dans ce talk, nous partirons du chemin parcouru et à venir pour analyser ce qu'on a appris, ce qu'on a désappris et comment nous voyons notre vision de l'organisation d'une tech du point de vue business, architectural et organisationnel.

Pourquoi nous l'avons choisi ?
Parce que comme ils disent ils font deux, trois choses. De notre fenêtre, ils font plus que du simple artisanat logiciel sorti d'une société lambda. Directement ou indirectement, ça parlera loi de Conway et comment organisation humaine et logiciel sont liées. C'est une des rares organisations que nous connaissons où cette loi avec une touche de DDD a autant aidé à la définition d'une organisation humaine. Et ce n'est pas fini car ils se posent toujours des questions.

Tackling Socio-technical complexity in the heart of your team
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.

Whack-A-Mole: A wake-up call for product dreamers !
Speaker pitch
‘I have a dream (...)! ‘
How many startups, projects, changes within the organization started like that? What happens when the rush of adrenaline and dose of positive attitude is gone? What to do when you’ve stopped believing that ‘yes, you can do it’?Some people would watch a Ted Talk, some would subscribe to the ‘Monday Motivation’ newsletter, some would give up on their dream. What I did (luckily), I got a systematic approach to my problem. I used the Lean Startup approach and Design Thinking as my weapon.

Why did we choose it ?
Because this is a new nice session if you want to understand product developement with an example. This is not a advanced session regarding one product practice, it will more give you an overview of some product development practices and they can be used with a nice story. You don't need to be an expert in product to come.

Observable distributed systems
Speaker pitch
I will speak about the need of becoming more comfortable with failure, especially when working with the complexity that comes with distributed systems. In my experience, a critical part of building applications is acknowledging that we cannot possibly prepare for everything... but there are ways to be ready for it.
My talk will go through how we can build system with observability in mind (using metrics, high-cardinality logging, distributed tracing...) in order to have the right tools to understand how our applications really behave.

Why did we choose it ?
Because we have talk a lot about testing and pipelines during last flowcon conferences and we believe we have to go further by understanding how a system works in the real life aka LIVE. In this talk, you will mainly understand what observability is. If you want to understand what might be your first steps regarding observability, Abby's session is a good add on.

Vous appréciez un sandwich crudités ? Les huîtres ? Un tartare de boeuf au caviar ? Au restaurant, en randonnée, en famille ? Le 31 décembre, le 21 juin ?
Agile fluency c’est comme la gastronomie : en fonction de vos envies, enjeux, contextes…
Chaque met à son charme, son coût, sa pertinence.

Aucune connaissance en gastronomie, pardon en agilité, n’est nécessaire, juste l’envie de vivre l’expérience d’une équipe apprenante et consciente.

Cet atelier permettra de découvrir rapidement la théorie d’Agile Fluency pour l’expérimenter dans la foulée. L’entreprise Fastronomie est en plein questionnement : dans quel lieu sont les équipes ? Est-ce le bon lieu pour moi ? Quel est le lieu cible ? Quelles pratiques faut-il muscler pour y parvenir ? Bref, nous vous proposons un débroussaillage d’agile fluency.

L'UX pragmatique
Speaker Pitch
L’UX sans utilisateurs, ça n’est plus de l’UX… Il faut aller vite pour pivoter sans perdre de temps… Il faut prendre son temps pour la recherche… Les dogmes en UX sont nombreux et parfois contradictoires. Mon objectif est de trouver un équilibre pragmatique. Notamment grâce au Lean UX, à une communication active et un bon reporting, je tente de gagner la confiance du client et des parties prenantes afin de débloquer, entre autre, des temps d’ateliers et de recherche utilisateurs. Je vous propose de vous présenter les succès et challenges sur le chemin de la recherche de cet équilibre pragmatique.

Pourquoi nous l'avons choisi ?
Parce que nous aimons faire des ponts entre des disciplines et qu'Anne est une des premières UX Designers à être venu voir ce qu'il se passait côté flux avec par exemple le Lean UX. Nous avons donc demandé à Anne de nous faire une session pour nous expliquer comme elle voyait l'UX s'appliquer dans une approche en flux. Assez vite, nous en sommes arrivés à parler de courants de pensée très clivants en ce moment dans le monde de l'UX. Anne nous propose donc une session pragmatique, comprendre que vous pourrez appliquer en sortant de la salle.

Regénérer votre système Kanban
Speaker pitch
Le premier jalon d’un système Kanban est souvent de retrouver de la sérénité au sein de l’équipe, de trouver un équilibre perdu il y a longtemps. La transition est tellement forte qu’après les systèmes Kanban risquent de vivoter. Comment continuer à insuffler de l’énergie dans son système Kanban pour qu’il continue à être une source d’amélioration continue ? Il faut continuer à se poser des questions … oui mais lesquelles ?
Dans cette conférence, je vous partagerai un socle de questions qui pourront réinspirer, réorienter les systèmes Kanban pour les amener dans une nouvelle phase. Vous verrez que votre système vous soumet en permanence des questions qui vous amèneront à faire évoluer chacune des facettes de votre système : les demandes, l’objectif du flux, ses activités, ses règles, la collaboration, la stratégie produit, etc.
A la fin de la session, toutes les questions posées seront partagées sur mon blog.
Pour profiter de cette session, vous devez savoir ce qu’est la méthode Kanban et ses 6 principes.

Pourquoi nous l'avons choisi ?
Parce que Romain est pour nous un des meilleurs experts du Kanban en France et que nous cherchions quelqu'un pour nous expliquer comment aller plus loin. Une fois que vous vous êtes lancés dans le grand bain, quelles sont les questions que vous pouvez vous poser pour améliorer encore et encore votre fonctionnement. C'est le type de session où même en connaissant Kanban, nous avons envie d'aller. Cette session peut être un peu dur si vous ne savez pas du tout ce qu'est Kanban. C'est accessible si vous connaissez la théorie, mais hésitez à vous lancer.

Event Storming : improving your facilitation skills
Speaker Pitch
Event Storming is a great tool to explore complex domains and put things quickly in motion, from big picture to software design. The format is easy to understand, and provided you have the right number of stickies and markers, you can jump into an Event Storming session is a blitz.

However, during the first edition of the Event Storming Summit in July 2018, I came to realize something. Most of the people who were present at the summit, who were advanced Event Storming practitioners and had facilitated loads of sessions, came from a technical background. To become good at facilitating an Event Storming, we all had to acquire a whole new skillset that we did not possess upfront, new facilitation skills.

In this talk, we will explore how you can improve your skills to become a better Event Storming facilitator. I will share my experience as a DDD practitioner, an agile coach and a serious player to address different techniques and open new perspectives, mixing things up a little. We will explore for example professional training approaches, playfulness, coaching postures and questioning techniques. And we will review some of the most dreadful anti-patterns and pitfalls you can reach as a facilitator.

Whether you are new at Event Storming or you already have experience, you will end this talk with a richer and broader perspective on your job as a facilitator.

Pourquoi nous l'avons choisi ?
Parce que nous voulions une session plus avancée sur l'event storming après 2 années de sessions d'initiation. Cette session va vous donner des pistes pour aller plus loin. Pour ceux qui voudraient une session plus débutant, allez voir du côté de Thomas Pierrain et Bruno Boucard.

Designing Experiments for Learning
Speaker pitch
Hypothesis-Driven Development is thinking about the development of new ideas, products and services – even organizational change – as a series of experiments to determine whether an expected outcome will be achieved, so we need to know how to design and run experiments properly.

This session helps participants understand the importance of using experiments to help teams and organizations learn and improve, while giving hands-on practice in designing experiments to yield measurable evidence for that learning. We’ll even play a couple of inductive-logic games to get us in the mindset of how to write tests to validate – and invalidate – our hypotheses in order to acquire knowledge.

Whether you’re in product development or organizational improvement, for those wanting to move from projects to experiments in the quest of continuous learning and evolutionary improvement, this session will provide the tools and mindset for going beyond simply calling something an experiment, to conducting experiments with the proper rigor to maximize learning.

Why did we choose it ?
Because that's easy to say "I need to learn more and continuously", that's more difficult to do it. In this workshop, Matthew and Karl will give you some tools to go further.

Liberating Structures

L’intelligence collective et comment la déchainer à travers l’utilisation de micro-structures de facilitation : les Liberating Structures.

Parce que les liberating structures, c'est trendy et que vous devrez y passer. Nous nous disons plutôt que le mieux pour comprendre des pratiques, c'est de les utiliser et nous vous proposons donc un workshop. Les liberating structures, c'est un set de pratiques qui aide des groupes à tirer profit du collectif et non pas une somme d'individus au même endroit qui réfléchissent à un même sujet.

How An Expedite Request Sunk the Titanic
Speaker pitch
Most people know that RMS Titanic was a British passenger ship that struck an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic on the morning of April 15, 1912 resulting in the loss of over 1,500 lives. What most people don’t know, however, is that during the final stages of construction of Titanic, an expedite request caused a delay in completion and triggered a chain of events that directly led to the sinking of the ill-fated vessel.

If this sounds all too familiar, that’s because delays due to expedite requests are sinking your process as well.

This talk will be an exploration of how disruptive interrupt requests—like expedites—can be to the normal flow of development work. Most people see these interrupts as innocuous, status quo, or even a necessary part of the product development process. Few people realize how negatively impactful these disruptions can be. In fact, for most teams, these interrupts are the number one cause for unpredictability.
Using the Titanic disaster as a backdrop, this presentation will look at the negative consequences of expedite work. It will explore objective data from real teams that demonstrates how expedites actually make things take more time—not less—to complete. Chances are you have always intuitively known that interrupts are what makes your process unpredictable.

This talk will give you to tools you need to quantify that impact and give you strategies on how minimize their negative effects.

Why did we choose it ?
Daniel was with us for a session about Lean analytics and we still remember it. It helped us understand how a system really works. For this year, Dan will use a story (the Titanic) to explain how to deal with multiple types of demands at the same time. Welcome in the world of classes of services and analytics.

Kanban, une équipe qui s’y est mise ! @ Mirakl
Speaker pitch
On a mis en place Kanban dans notre équipe et on va vous raconter notre histoire. Ce n’est pas juste celle d'un tableau avec des colonnes, mais plutôt comment nos essais et nos apprentissages nous ont aidé à améliorer notre produit, nos perfs, nos process, notre archi et notre manière de travailler ensemble.

On va vous raconter l’histoire d’une équipe qui dans le but de s’améliorer s’est mise à Kanban, en vous présentant notre contexte et le chemin qu’on a parcouru pour évoluer.
Notre apprentissage a commencé avec Scrum en 2013 et après plusieurs sprints, se sentant un peu serré dans nos process et observant notre amélioration continue tourner au ralenti nous avons décidé de nous intéresser à Kanban.
Après presque deux ans de mise en pratique, notre bilan est plus que positif et on souhaite partager avec vous ce que ça nous a apporté ainsi que les difficultés que l’on a rencontrées lors de notre transition.
On va vous montrer comment les principes et la mise en place des pratiques de Kanban ont eu des impacts sur notre produit, notre productivité et notre manière de développer.
Autant d’un point de vue technique et humain, nos réflexions nous ont permis de faire émerger des solutions nous permettant de maîtriser et d’optimiser notre flow de création de valeur.
Aujourd’hui nous avons une équipe engagée qui maîtrise son process et qui continue à se remettre en question afin de s’améliorer continuellement pour faire face aux challenges qu’elle rencontre.

Pourquoi nous l'avons choisi ?
Parce que bien que nous ne soyons plus Lean Kanban France, nous gardons Kanban dans notre coeur. Cette session vous permettra de comprendre comment Kanban peut être implémenter au niveau d'une équipe. Nous la rangeons dans la case découverte.

L'architecture incertaine
Speaker pitch
Do we really know what is a good architecture ? How could we possibly explain that some supposed poorly designed system had a better ability to evolve and adapt ? Is worse better* ?

In the middle of uncertainty no perfect solution exists, chasing the silver bullet is a losing game. All model are wrong some are useful, let's explore how could we possibly architect for discovery and not 'only' for delivery.

A good architecture goes beyond only technical concerns and make it easy to share knowledge.

* Worse is better essay

Pourquoi nous l'avons choisi ?
Parce qu'avec Radwane, nous savons qu'il va nous parler de recettes éprouvées sur le terrain et que l'architecture est souvent un sujet que nous mettons sur le côté en disant "On verra ça plus tard". Et bien plus tard sera maintenant, venez découvrir comment faire de l'architecture pragmatique qui comme le dit Radwane va au dela de juste la technique. Cette session sera en français malgré un pitch en anglais.

Learning at scale
Speaker pitch
Where we are seeing more and more individual and team level learning and continuous improvement in organizations, improvements at the higher levels still tend to pose significant challenges. We learn as a team and learn how to be a team, but when we reach the borders of our team and have to deal with more complex systems involving people from our ecosystem and even sometimes from people outside our ecosystem, many improvement practices break down and don't lead to sustainable results. At the same time, the bigger and more complex our solutions become, the more we need to be able to secure improvement at all levels in the organization.
In this talk, Ben Linders will explore what we can do to increase our understanding of systematic problems at higher levels in organizations, and how to use that to improve the performance and agility of organizations. He will show how we can apply techniques like system/multi-team retrospectives and systems thinking to get improvement going at a level of two higher than the team, and present the benefits that this can bring to teams and organizations as a whole.

Why did whe choose it ?
Because continuous improvment often means retrospective at team level. More and more, we think that we need to figure out how to get continuous improvment at an organisation level. That's why we asked Ben to raise the flag and explain what is his vision about learning at scale.

Agile as If You Meant It
Speaker pitch
For over a decade of software product agile, we have been inspecting and adapting the way we work. We have come to appreciate software development as a process where we turn ideas into code where true ownership of progress lies within the developers working in devops style. Users see no change unless a developer implements a change. While we center the developers, every developer welcomes help in understanding what is the right thing to build and how we together could learn about it more effectively.

In this talk, we look at a case example of what Modern Agile looks like with F-Secure Corporate Windows security endpoint development. Building on practices of internal open source valuing contributions towards changing the code, we grow people to work within a wider role of a developer. We focus on pull on scheduling and information, run dual track of discovery and delivery, organize work around submitting to identified bottlenecks, grow people and take things further on developer-centric ways of working having no scrum masters or product owners. 
Customer-focused team directly in touch with their customers performs better without a proxy. Join me to learn how the decision power shared for everyone in the team transformed the ability to deliver, and how collaboration is organized when users are counted in the millions and the contributors to the product in hundreds.

Why did we choose it ?
To be honest, we chose to welcome Maaret and she chose the session. Nevertheless, we didn't talk so much about modern agile at flowcon and this session is a good opportunity to fill the gap.

Stop giving feedback!
Speaker pitch
Training people to give feedback better doesn’t bring the results we want because the receiver must be willing to accept it. In fact, telling people how they can improve may actually stop people from improving. So, rather than figuring out how to get better at giving feedback, we need to solve for asking for feedback instead (perhaps, even begging for it!). That’s what creating an ask-for-feedback culture is all about. I will share the latest neuroscience about feedback. Learn how our brains react to feedback, and how you can change the way you treat feedback to continuously improve yourself and your organization.

Why did we choose it ?
Because we like this talk given at Agile Business Days. It's a lot about not saying your feedback is a gift for someone, but considering it something usefull for someone who asked for it.
In this session, Jenni will help us make feedback efficient by talking about culture.

Observability
Speaker pitch
Empowerment through observability.
Leaning into building observable systems will empower us to move past the rat race which is “test everything before release”.
For the last year, Abby has been embedding herself in the world of operations to uncover how the tools and techniques used by operations engineers can support testing.
This talk will examine Abby's experiences improving team and business outcomes through a focus on observability with topics like:
- Reimagining how we define useful alerts based on experiences writing test automation suites
- Building test environments to continuously deliver applications when dependent systems move at a much slower pace
- Asking “what is normal” for systems that have not previously defined baselines

This focus on operations tooling has been driven by the last ten years of growing DevOps adoption. DevOps speeds up feedback loops, delivers value faster, and shortens time to validate before release while simultaneously tricking us into thinking we still can test everything in a CD pipeline.
The extensive cost associated with creating and maintaining “realistic” pre-production environments still leaves many issues which just can’t be imagined or recreated in even the best case scenario.
The large scale and messy reality that is real customer use cases like global traffic or malformed historical data will always uncover new understanding about our systems.
To identify and triage these behaviours we need to reimagine testing through the lens of observability.
By understanding Abby's lessons learned, you will be empowered to understand and apply observability to your own product.

Why did we choose it ?
Because Abby will give you steps to start using observability. This session is a good add on to Pierre session which is more about what is observability. To understand this session, it's better to be a bit technical.

Mob Programming
Speaker pitch
Mob Programming : je ne développerai plus jamais seul
Chez Fluo, la première fois que nous avons entendu parler de mob programming nous étions un peu perplexes.
Dans une startup comme la nôtre, 5/6 développeurs à se partager un clavier ça semblait très curieux.
Un beau matin, histoire de débloquer deux de nos collègues coincés sur un dev, nous avons tout de même décidé d'essayer.
Avec un rétro, nous avons alors projeté le code sur un écran. Ca a tellement bien marché que depuis, contre toute attente, nous avons continué et sommes devenus fan de cette pratique.

Lors de cette session, nous vous proposons de vous en dire un peu plus : concrètement comment ça marche, ce que cela nous a apporté, et pourquoi nous pensons que c'est si efficace.

Pourquoi nous l'avons choisi ?
Parce que nous aurions pu prendre une session explicative sur ce qu'est le mob progamming, mais que c'est quand même beaucoup mieux quand c'est quelqu'un qui le fait qui vient raconter son histoire.

Coaching pro ET agile, une approche globale de transformation
Speaker pitch
Nombreux sont les coach agiles qui se forment au coaching professionnel et connaissent la valeur d’une telle démarche ainsi que l’impact que l’on a sur les individus. Nous constatons l’émergence de cette démarche chez les clients en lien, parfois en lien avec leur transformation et parfois non. Mais, s’agit-il de coaching sauvage ou d'un coaching avec une déontologie en lien avec la transformation ? Existe-t-il des spécificités ? A quel moment le proposer et comment ? Tripartite ou Quadripartite ? ...

L’objectif de cette présentation est d’apporter un éclairage sur la manière d'apporter une offre globale coaching professionnel / coaching agile et non deux initiatives disjointes qui ont du mal à cohabiter. Nous apporterons des éléments de réponses possibles mais aussi des questionnements.

Le mot de l'organisation
En quoi est ce intéressant par rapport à toutes les démarches classiques de coaching professionnel et agile ? Et bien parce que Claude et Basile ont adapté les protocoles de coaching pour créer un tout cohérent, que ce soit en termes de durée, de fréquence mais aussi de déontologie vis à vis des sponsors des transformations.

Creating autonomy
Speaker pitch
Creating autonomy in the workplace in a safe way. Giving responsibility to team members brings a lot of advantages but can also be scary. Ways of understanding if you’re in control change and so are ways of collaborating. This talk is about how managers and teams can collaborate in moving to more autonomous, self-organizing teams.

Why did we choose it ?
Because we let Jasper choose :-) and we'd like his choice. Autonmy is often use with a "Be autonomous" sentence. I give your an order to be autonomous. Isn't it a little bit weird. Autonomy can't be an order, it has to be something people have to do by their owns.

L'entreprise agile, archétypes, culture et alignement
Speaker pitch
Laurent Morisseau et Pablo Pernot (aussi auteurs de Kanban, l'approche en flux pour l'entreprise agile, chez Dunod), animeront un atelier sur l'entreprise agile, la culture et l'alignement.

Au travers d'un regard sur des archétypes d'organisation et leurs caractéristiques, ils nous proposeront dans un premier temps une grille de lecture pour identifier ceux qui sont dysfonctionnels et à quel niveau.

Sur la base de cette analyse, nous allons nous projeter dans un deuxième temps sur la dynamique que nous pourrions accompagner. Deux types de solutions seront évoquées pour une entreprise dysfonctionnelle : une revitalisation, lorsqu’il s’agit de ne pas changer sa nature (sa mission, son identité, ses convictions), mais de redevenir fonctionnelle ; Une reforme, un changement de nature, quand il s’agit de se repenser. projetons-nous sur la dynamique que nous pourrions accompagner.

Pourquoi nous l'avons choisi ?
Parce que nous souhaitions une session de type intimiste avec Laurent et Pablo. Le format petite salle vous permettra d’interagir facilement et de creuser un des thèmes de leur livre à savoir l'entreprise agile et ses archétypes. La lecture du livre n'est pas un préalable à la participation à cette session.

Le paradoxe du poisson rouge
Speaker pitch
Dans un monde complexe en perpétuel mouvement, un pays semble se distinguer dans son aisance à l’appréhender : la Chine. Un animal particulier y est célébré depuis longtemps : le poisson rouge - pas celui qui tourne en rond dans son bocal mais la carpe koï, élégante et colorée, ornant majestueusement les bassins des jardins publics.
La culture populaire lui confère 8 grandes vertus, toutes issues de la sagesse chinoise, lui permettant de vivre en harmonie avec son environnement et de saisir les opportunités avec agilité. Ces idées sont autant d’inspiration dans notre développement personnel que dans nos pratiques professionnelles.
Je vous invite donc à les découvrir afin d’ouvrir votre champ de perspectives et réveiller le Chinois qui sommeille en vous ! ;-)

Pourquoi nous l'avons choisi ?
Parce que c'est une session qui sort de l'ordinaire. Nous ne nous attendons pas à ce que vous sortiez avec des pratiques directement utilisables, mais plus que cela vous donne des pistes de développement personnel.

Imposing Agile with Coherence, Constraints and Curiosity
Speaker pitch
As Agile becomes more mainstream, leaders and managers are increasingly deciding to establish Agile Transformations to deliver organisational improvement. However, the imposition of Agile methods and practices as ready-made solutions is like putting a new patch on an old garment - a superficial fix which will ultimately make things worse. Instead, leaders and managers should be choosing Engagement Models, with which they can align people to discovering what changes need to be made. In this way, organisational improvement can become outcome-oriented, continuous and fully participatory.

Why did we choose it ?
Because this session will give you a good overview of what change can be with a kanban thinking approach. Karl will also highlight a few models/practices to further deep dive.

The Sociotechnical Architecture Toolkit
Speaker pitch
How do you organise teams and align them with your software architecture? Do you design the teams first and the architecture later or vice-versa? Do you have even have guiding principles and techniques that help you to shape your organisation or are you driven by gut instinct and the structure of your previous company?
The Sociotechnical Architecture is a collection of heuristics, patterns, and techniques for co-designing and co-evolving software teams and software architectures aligned to the business strategy. 
Included in the toolkit are domain-driven design techniques like Event Storming and the Bounded Context Canvas. The tools are about finding natural cohesion in the business domain which provides a platform for autonomous teams and services.
The toolkit also contains principles, like the 3 virtues of modularity, which help us to create a structured mental model of sociotechnical systems so that in any given situation we can think for ourselves and make contextually-relevant trade-offs.
The toolkit also includes a variety of patterns for evolving architecture like slice and scale, along with heuristics for deciding when it’s the right time to evolve an architecture.

Why did we choose it ?
Because we believe in DDD as much as we believe in Nick. This won't be an easy session if you are not aware of DDD even if Nick is very good at explaining concepts. You just need to be present and focus. It might also be a good opportunity for you to understand how organization and technical design are mixed. This session is a toolkit for everyone interesed in sociotechical organizations which means changing human organization by taking care of technical design and the opposite.

Lean starts with kanban
Speaker pitch
Michael Ballé, PhD. is a long-time lean management practitioner and has helped many CEOs to establish their own lean cultures. The co-author of The Lean Strategy, he has shown how lean is a people-first, value-based strategy. In this talk, he will share how kanban is the starting-point tool to learn and understand lean's upside-down thinking.

  1. Value in scale-up: where is the lean competitive edge
  2. Flow is a means to find just-in-time problems
  3. Establishing a culture of "problem first" and problem solving
  4. What can kanban teach you about agility

Why did we choose this session ?
Because Michael was there 2 years ago and he helped us having another point of view about Kanban by sharing his beliefs. That's a pleasure for us to let him close the conference.
