Experimenting Your Way Through Transformation
Jason Little: Experimenting Your Way Through Transformation
Some believe Agile is a mindset. Some believe you can't 'do Agile', you can only 'be Agile'. Some believe Agile is a bunch of tools and processes. We run into trouble during Agile Transformations when these beliefs collide with each other. Despite the difference in our beliefs, I think we can all agree that we need to try some things out before knowing how Agile will affect our entire organization. In this talk, I'll share techniques and stories about how to experiment your way through change. I'll show you how to create experiments without losing sight of the big picture, and why you should use fuzzy measurements early on when learning is the objective. Most importantly, instead of embracing uncertainty, I'll show you how we can work towards reducing it.

Doing I.T. for SCIENCE! - Sprints, Startups and the Scientific Method
Dylan Beattie: Doing I.T. for SCIENCE! - Sprints, Startups and the Scientific Method
As developers, we're used to working with systems that we control. We write code, we write tests, we build servers and infrastructure, and everything works beautifully - and then we ship, and suddenly we're not in control any more. Our code is out there in the real world - real people, real problems, maybe even real money - and suddenly we're seeing all sorts of interesting data and behaviour that was never part of our plan.
Agile teams aren't scared by this emergent behaviour - instead, we embrace it. We know that we don't really understand how our systems work until we're getting real feedback from real users. We know that with rapid iterations and frequent releases, we can react quickly to this feedback - but only once we understand what it really means. So... what's the best way to investigate something that we don't yet understand?
Since the 17th century, scientists have been investigating the world around us using a technique known as the scientific method - and, just like Tampere Goes Agile 2016, the scientific method is all about experimentation. So, in this talk, we're going to talk about experiments. We'll discuss how to design a good experiment. We'll look at some of history's most famous experiments, and how even 'failed' experiments have often led to important advances in knowledge and understanding. We'll look at how successful software teams use experimentation as part of their development process, and at how you can share the results of your own experiments so that we can all benefit from each other's research. And we'll even conduct a few experiments of our own. You know... for SCIENCE!
