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!

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”.

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.

Flow : The new world of business agility
Speaker pitch 
Flow : The New World of Business Agility
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.

Whack-A-Mole for product dreamers (aka : 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.

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.

Ptich
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.

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.

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.

Kanban, une équipe qui s’y est mise ! @ Mirakl
Elevator 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.

Description du talk :

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.

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.

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.

What’s the worst that can happen ?
Speaker pitch
Work is solving someone else’s problem. We mostly do so by collaborating with other people as well. Work is a social activity, which makes managing work a social practice, but management, in most of its current incarnations, is an institutionalised form of distrust and the acceleration of “technical” solutions that are proposed to solve work problems reflects how we’re deeply uncomfortable to face the social reality of work.

In knowledge work, where underlying complexity quickly exceeds the ability of any individual to realise valuable outcomes for stakeholders and/or customers, meaningful interaction is necessary to create capability. This requires that we believe that we can rely on each other or, in other words, that we trust each other. Without trust, there is no improvement and no innovation.

So why then is creating trust so hard? Why do trust models, that seem to work so wonderfully in simulations, consistently fail when applied in the real world? One answer to that is that trust is (more often than not) complex and contextual. The trust an infant has in its mother’s care is something completely different from the trust that a lover affords to a repeat offender’s efforts to improve. Trusting your boss not to throw you under the bus is entirely different from trusting your employee not to take advantage when letting them work from home.

In this talk I will share what things I have learned about building trust, both in successful teams, as well as in highly toxic corporate environments, and how a complexity-informed approach can help discover obstacles when fostering trust.

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.

Using the Relationship Between Flow, Lean and Agile to Guide Achieving Business Agility
Using the Relationship Between Flow, Lean and Agile to Guide Achieving Business Agility

Speaker pitch
As Agile has spread from its team-centric home to the enterprise, the theories of Flow and Lean become essential. Our real goal is not just to have great teams, but to have an Agile organization. This requires business agility – the ability to have customers realize value quickly, predictably, sustainably and with high quality.

Using Flow and Lean enables practitioners to more readily see the root cause of their challenges and to make reasonably accurate predications about what improvements can be made. I call this being a “flow whisperer” because you can both see it and improve it.
Many people don’t realize how they have a greater ability to see how to improve things than they give themselves credit for – and certainly more than the big cosulting bodies give themselves credit for.

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.

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.

L'entreprise agile, archétypes, culture et alignement
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.

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 ! ;-)

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.
