Daniel and Anna are two agile experts. Together they have 40+ years of coaching experience helping organizations get better at solving technical and business problems, always putting people first.

In this talk, Daniel and Anna will show you...:

  • How you can pair program a conference talk
  • How you can achieve both autonomy and alignment in product development
  • How you can combine industrial thinking and digital product thinking to achieve agility at scale

Daniel Tierhorst-North, the originator of Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD), is always thought provoking and entertaining in his talks, and this time he's pairing up with Anna Urbaniak, a highly experienced organizational coach at Deutsche Bank, to share practical, hands-on experiences on how organizations and individuals can become happier and build better products.

Their pragmatic advice is the conference equivalent of “must-see-TV”

The shift from industrial thinking to digital product thinking is profound. Tools and structures designed to support one often work directly against the other. Great industrial leadership does not transfer to great digital product leadership. So we tend to think of them as being in conflict.

Agile-in-the-small, a single team with a single product, is all about digital product thinking. Agile-in-the-large is a very different thing.
