Management

Development

Hey everyone! My name is Daniil Bazhenov, I'm a CTO at Simtech Development. This year I'm in charge of the Management section. At Simtech I manage a team of 60+ developers and project managers. I love what I do, that's why I enjoy learning more about management and taking up new practices at work. This year I invited the best experts in the field for you and I'd like to learn from them myself.

The information in this section will be useful to anyone who needs management skills: from tech leads and project managers to CEOs and startupers. We'll talk about leadership and the skills a leader should have. We'll learn how to inspire people and deal with resistance against the changes. We'll look into the processes of product management involving both an in-house team, and a remote team.

Check out the speakers of my section and come to Stachka!

The report examines the basic tools and activities that help pass the initial stage of team building and the start of work on Scrum taking less pains. You will learn what activities should be performed in the Scrum teams after they are launched (or subsequently, if they have not been conducted earlier), to increase team productivity. The report can be used by the Scrum masters as a ‘cheat sheet’ to work with their teams in the first few weeks of work. Many tools will also be useful for those teams that have long been working on Scrum. A set of tools and activities is based on several years of experience with teams. Why? Because everyone wants to make their team more effective. After all, Scrum is about increasing speed and quality, isn’t it?

As easy as 1-2-3: how we increased the transparency of 25 teams.

The lecture covers the ways to understand what is happening inside the development teams while looking from outside. Everything is simple and difficult at the same time.???? 2 years of search, 4 approaches - and the tool started to work. It measures and shows the temperature to see which team is overheating in order to be in time with the fire brigade.???? I will talk about how we implemented metrics into teams with different processes, how we performed light standardization and how it was visualized. There will be quite a lot of examples from the life of JIRA.

Keep the rest secret in order not to disclose the intrigue :)

So, you decided to run Scrum with the team. Or maybe you want to use Kanban?

In my report, I will tell you how and why teams combine Scrum and Kanban. In the program: cases, examples and answers to your questions.


Vasily Savunov
Coach @ ScrumTrek

Agile does not like absolute estimates – in hours, Mondays, days. Because in teamwork these units begin to fail, each member of the team gives a different estimate for the same work, and it all finally ends up in an argument like “why did you do it in 4 hours, and not in 3 as promised?” They bring more harm than benefit, and never help improve flexibility, development speed or team spirit. So what estimates should rely on? On manpower requirement and its estimate in relative units. Because the work scope is generally constant. At our small workshop, you will be able to have first-hand experience and make you own conclusions.

Usual realities at nearly any company are such that there are always many “wishes and desires” and limited number of people who can implement them. However, not all “ wishes and desires” are really worth allocation of limited development resources. So how to put everything right “at input” so that it is clear for each task whether it is worth to be addressed, and in what order of priority. And so that everything is clear, transparent and based on estimates and facts? This is what we are going to talk about at the lecture.

Agile Coach @ ScrumTrek

The lecture covers methods of visual communication between team members and the organization in order to improve the quality of decisions taken and to reduce the level of control in favor of transparency and openness.

Draw a flower. A chamomile or a tulip. Look at your drawing, did you draw the roots? But this is an integral part of the flower. What is out of our sight is also out of the focus of our attention. We do not see the work process and constantly ask for status, we do not see a list of problems in front of our eyes and forget about them, we do not see the strategy and it fades out. How often we do not see important things and do something that does not move us forward. In my lecture, I will share various visualization techniques: from world practice, from own experience and from the practice of the companies for which I was lucky to work. See you at the lecture, it will be interesting :)
