    ぼくがディレクターをつとめる、Mackerelというプロダクトの開発チームは、東京オフィス・京都オフィス・愛知にあるエンジニアの自宅の3拠点体制で、3年以上開発を続けています。

    日常的にリモートチームで開発をしているのですが、リモートワークはメリットばかりではありません。

    とてもとても、難しいのです。

    このセッションでは、「リモートワークの難しさ」に焦点をあてます。

    リモートワークの何が難しいのか。チーム開発においてどのような困難や問題点があるのか。

    そしてそれでも僕たちがリモートワークを選択する理由やメリットは何なのか。

    赤裸々にお話しようと思います。

    Scrum is a set of well-defined rules that enable teams to work effectively to deliver valuable products. Scrum Guide is the rule book of Scrum. You are requested to follow the rules to get benefits of Scrum.

    But why do you need to follow Scrum rules? Scrum says it is crucial to inspect and adapt. So why not inspect how Scrum rules work.

    This session explores the history of Scrum with patterns. The first Scrum paper was published in a form of pattern language. By looking how these patterns have evolved, we hope to see how these Scrum rules are formed and have better understand why they are rules.

    This session concludes with the update of ScrumPLoP.

    This session can also be delivered in Japanese.

    Every time we did our 5 day Certified Scrum Developer class, it's a rich learning experience for both us and the clients. After doing it for 6 years and also practicing what we teach, I've summarised the topics into three rhythmic steps, which I "dance" over not only during my CSD classes but also in other technical coaching situations, again and again. I call these steps Re-spec, Re-design and Re-entry.

    For an organisation undergoing agile transformation, some of the initial biggest people challenges are around creating new agile roles and finding the talents to fulfilling these roles. The most prominent of the challenges are product owners and scrum masters. Like many organisations, the most immediate strategy is to hire and they often end up with people who are short on industry knowledge, pre-existing agile practices and knowledge that are not aligned or unable to hire. Very often, organisations appoint within internal organisations but fall short on how to find them and how to grow them.

    This is an interactive workshop on how to identify and develop competences for product owners and scrum masters. It can be adopted to your organisation's existing competency programmes. In this exercise, I'll be using Strength Finder cards.

    I'll also provide some tips on how to scale by equipping the right product owners and scrum masters and growing them.

    How is your Agile team? More line of code? Less bugs found?... Your Agile team is performing well? Not really.

    Organization always concerns about how to measure a team when they adopt Agile. There are some misconceptions about the Agile team measurement that lead to the wrong organizational behavior. This session defines the ideas of team measurement in both view of team and organization.

    "What are we building? And why?"

    "I need this info! Where do I get it?"

    "I've got a lot of user research, what's next?"

    Chances are you will hear these words from your team many times in any project.

    Is your team making wasteful decisions because they didn't have a common understanding - especially across different roles? Is your team slowing down because the knowledge and decisions are owned by just a few key people? And what if some of these key people who own the knowledge take a vacation when you most need them?

    In this talk you will learn how convert all the great user insights you gathered and discovered into easy and actionable items that your team can use to move your project forward.

    You will learn to:

    - Externalise knowledge from your team
    - Consolidate and align vision
    - Create a core onboarding journey
    - Make better user of empathy
    - Understand "as-is" state and how to drive to an ideal "to-be" state

    Oscar Lopez Alegre - Why we do scrum? incremental product development

    20 Mins
    Experience Report
    Intermediate

    I will start with something that most people in the software industry will not like. Building software is easy, you can get some tutorial and get code working. When you try to build good quality software, well that's complicated. You need to understand what you're doing. But then, what is complex? Creating the right product for your users.

    Most teams focus more when applying scrum on Software and Quality software, but forget about the problem of creating the right product.

    The output of each iteration of scrum is a software increment, and I think that's the core of the problem on many teams failing on scrum. They build the increment, but they forget why they build it. Scrum teams need to recover the view on the reason to apply scrum and why we embrace iterative development.

    スクラムは「トヨタ生産方式」と源流を同じくしており、継続的に組織を良い状態に向けて進めていくという考え方は同じであるし、トヨタ生産方式を基盤としたリーンの考え方がその根本にあることは良く知られています。

    ただ、リーンは欧米から輸入された考えであって、トヨタのおひざ元の日本でそれをありがたがって使うのって、どうかと思いませんか?このセッションは、トヨタ生産方式以降のトヨタの考え方をソフトウェア開発のプロセスに載せて、スクラムを発展させられないかという試みについての結果をお話ししたいと思います。

    具体的には、自工程完結で重要な「段取り」の考え方をチーム開発と個人研究に適応してみて、改善を行いながらプロセスのフォーマットとセレモニーを構築していった事例となります。

    One of the main point in Agile software development is continuous delivery that Scrum states it Sprint. When the delivery benefits to user, it becomes continuous release. With DevOps, the continuous release becomes easier and many teams can practice it today with web application.

    But mobile is another story. We cannot have failover, we cannot have rollback… to react to the mistake. App Store review takes time as well. So while mobile first is a trend but so few organization can get continuous release happened for mobile. How to practice the weekly release for mobile app?
