About the session

Delivering software at scale is tough.

Sam Cann & Liam Dewes of Booking.com share their hands-on experience in delivering software across multiple platforms, teams and locales for a major brand in the travel industry.

Making theory and ideas tangible, they hope to show the ‘under the hood’ view of how Product & Delivery worked together; including workshop tactics, Agile principle adoption & negotiation strategies.


Participant takeaways:

  • How they created a language for Delivery to keep everyone from Directors to Juniors focussed on a single value proposition.
  • How to slice deliverables to focus on production-proven, end-to-end integration of working software (and how burn ups didn’t help forecast delivery) 
  • Delivering through others: leveraging a Capability model to create mini start-up style environments and push for faster, efficient collaboration

Themes:

Scaling Agile, Communication, Leadership, Practical, Transformation, Governance, Complexity, Lean Agile, Strategy
