About the session

How do you move an organisation of 15 teams and their single shared monolith from bi-annual releases to fortnightly releases in under four months?

How do you reduce release pain and cost?

Because of the monolith, we could not start with one team. We had to apply changes to all 15 teams at once.

How do you know where to start, when technological and organisational challenges surround you?

During this session, Thierry will cover how they used the Improvement Kata, Value Stream Mapping, and the Theory Of Constraints to choose which changes to apply first, and kickstart the organisational changes we needed to improve quality and drive down lead times.

Participant Takeaways:

  • Understand how the Improvement Kata is a better approach to introduce change at scale.
  • Apply the Improvement Kata to introduce change.
  • Analyse the organisation's current situation using a Value Stream Mapping workshop.
  • Identify the bottlenecks requiring first attention using the Theory of Constraints.
  • Apply Fear Conversations to surface stakeholders' fears and mitigate them.
