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 projects and teams operate in software development has changed quite a bit. From projects were 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 that will be even smaller than in agile, and much more fluent.

Sander has been experimenting with collaboration in teams for years and reasons about this next evolution of collaboration as areas, collectives, and microteams. This talk illustrates how organisations and teams doing software and product development can transition to focus on delivering value using the ever-evolving and self-organising 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.
