Sustaining Fast Flow with Socio-Technical Thinking

Due to unforseen circumstances, the presenter will no longer be available for the Q&A. 

It's easy to achieve fast flow at the start of a new project, especially with a fresh new codebase. But why does flow always seem to get slower and slower over time? Business stakeholders are asking for two new text boxes to be added to a web page, and they are gobsmacked when the developers say it will take 3 months.

On the contrary, high-performing teams are able to sustain fast flow for years, delivering new product enhancements to production multiple times per-day. A combination of factors including architecture, domain ownership, and manageable cognitive load is key, creating the conditions for purpose, autonomy, and mastery which incentivise and facilitate sustainable flow.

This talk will share principles and practices from the fields of Domain-Driven Design and Team Topologies that leaders can apply to address the social and technical aspects necessary for creating the conditions for high-performing teams and sustainable flow throughout their organisation.
