How microteams change the way we collaborate. Again.

Introducing the next evolution in autonomous collaboration in the age of agile and remote working

​Over the years​,​ the way ​organizations and teams operate in software development has changed quite a bit. From projects where teams were sliced vertically per discipline, to multi-disciplinary and cross-functional teams in agile approaches and frameworks. Now, as a consequence of increasing velocity, remote working, DevOps, DevSecOps, and continuous delivery, we are on the move again.

In Sander’s vision, teams will be even smaller than in agile, ​work in much shorter cycles than in Scrum, ​and ​become ​much more fluent.​ ​Sander has been experimenting with collaboration in teams for years and reasons about this next evolution of collaboration as ​domains, ​streams, and microteams. This talk illustrates how organizations and teams doing software and product development can transition to focus on delivering value using the ever-evolving and self-organizing power of microteams and how to get there using a combination of models, such as Cynefin, moving beyond agile and Scrum, innovation funnels and backlogs, autonomy, and fewer rules.​
