Introducing the next evolution in autonomous collaboration 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, 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 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, the Golden Circle, innovation funnels and backlogs, autonomy, and fewer rules.
