Agile at Scale Workshop, Inspired by Spotify
Learn how to build an organisation that enables agile at scale!
“The Spotify Model” of agile at scale has been getting a surprising amount of attention in the agile community since it was first shared widely in 2012. The Spotify Engineering Culture videos have more than 500K views.
It was never intended as a framework or a model, it was just a case study of the Spotify way of working at the time. That has not stopped a large number of organizations from copying or imitating the model, often without understanding what it was optimized for, what challenges it comes with or how Spotify has adapted and continued to evolve in the five years since.
About the workshop
How do you build an organisation that enables agile at scale and unleashes the power of small autonomous teams?
Join this 2-day workshop with Joakim Sundén, who has long experience from working at Spotify, and has been involved in developing several of the concepts of “the Spotify Model”.
Joakim will share his experiences and viewpoints as independent agile coach and trainer, not as representatives of Spotify.
After this workshop, you will have plenty of examples and inspiration from how Spotify grew a dynamic learning organisation that continually reinforces a high-trust culture and supports engaged autonomous teams.
