Unless you've been living off the grid in darkest Peru, you'll have been experiencing growing disruption from multiple vectors in your work as well as your personal life. By any reasonable analysis, we're now in an age of Systemic disruption: not the short-sighted "it's all about Digital" messaging in the popular media - it's a growing, expanding force, and it's something we need to understand and develop ways to work with.

If you haven't already thought about the topic, ask yourself:

  • what does systemic disruption mean for product and service development?
  • what do we need to do differently to work with disruption?  

This talk will explore some of the context, issues and considerations that should be front of mind for leaders of teams and organisations alike.

    From the outside Spotify is a company who has solved the riddle of scaling agile, but the insiders perspective might surprise you, with our structure more closely resembling a collection of startups sharing a wifi connection.

    Paul Szymkowiak - Understanding Quality: a Federated Framework for surfacing Stakeholder Value.

    90 Mins

    Quality is something that each of us have deep experience with, and an intuitive sense for: we know it when we see it. It's a word that is used freely in discussion, and springs to mind readily.

    However, put us to the task of defining it in terms that can be discussed with others, and we often face challenges.

    During 2014 - 2015, a wonderfully elegant and deceptively simple framework for thinking about quality was nurtured into existence at RMIT in the fertile soil of the Context-Driven Testing community. 

    This short workshop will give you experience with a fun, flexible and easy-to-use framework for understanding and aligning on what Quality means to you and other stakeholders within your context. You'll be able to leverage the framework in any aspect of your work or personal life to help you understand what really matters.
