In this session, I’ll explain how a truly awesome team embarked on an Agile transformation using Compliance Driven Development which increased throughput, reduced code and systems complexity, introduced continuous verification using continuous delivery, dramatically reduced failed changes and production incidents, introduced DevSecOps before it became a buzzword and created highly engaged cross-functional performant teams.


Outline/Structure of the Case Study

  • Set the scene
  • Explain what Compliance Driven Development is.
  • Understand why I should care.
  • Show how it transformed a business from the trenches
  • Questions

Learning Outcome

Dispel the follow myths:

  • Agile cannot be used in compliance regulated industries
  • Agile is unstructured and undisciplined
  • Agile means no planning
  • Agile means no documentation
  • Agile means “hacking” code together with little thought of architecture or design

Target Audience

Anyone who’s interested in understanding how agile adoption works in a regulatory compliance environment

    Starting in November 2017, a crew at MYOB embarked on an exciting 6 weeks journey of an Agile Dojo! Guided by an Agile Coach, it was an intensive learning experience which gave us opportunities to challenge the status quo, carry out various experiments, introduced them to new tools, techniques & practices to foster collaboration, refine team dynamics, bring structure to their approaches and improve the way they worked in general.
    We used 'Improvement Kata' and 'Coaching Kata' from Lean Management for learning, adapting, experimenting and coaching. It was a time to pause, observe and ponder over things.
    In a nutshell, it was a time-boxed immersive accelerated learning opportunity which resulted in productivity improvements ranging from 10%-90%. MYOB ran this Dojo as an investment in their knowledge workers! It was an experiment run at both Auckland and Melbourne and was successful. This talk will give you glimpses of our 'dojo' adventure, learnings, challenges, interesting surprises and lots of 'aha' moments!

    Over the years REA has mastered the art of delivering products following the lean startup principles, however, working with a bank to create a home loans product was a different ballgame. Functioning in the Build-Measure-Learn cycles requires a fundamental change in the way people (or organizations) think and work.

    In spring of 2017, REA made a big leap from being purely a media organization to venturing into financial services. As a result, there is now an innovative product offering in the Australian home loans market that allows consumers to sort out their home finance needs while they are still in the market looking for their dream home, all from the comfort of their living room couch.

    This talk is about how to shape up your products with decisions based on data, metrics, and evidence over personal opinion.
