The fundamental problem with software methodologies is that none of them work. What's decisive is not which one you adopt, but what you do to continue to innovate around your processes. In this wide-ranging talk, I'll discuss why command-and-control leads to risk management theatre, and why this makes things riskier and more painful. I'll present the essence of innovation culture, how it works at scale, and present some tools (including the Improvement Kata) to help you think differently about how to grow great software.

    Projects were invented as a vehicle for managing civil engineering projects. But software has completely different characteristics from, say, a bridge. In this talk I'll explain why the use of projects causes significant dysfunction, and how to build innovative products and services at scale based on lean principles.
