Spotify's way of working with agile at scale, aka "the Spotify Model", has spread like wildfire through the software industry and every other organisation now wants to leverage the power of "autonomous squads". But autonomy, especially aligned and effective autonomy, is an outcome, not something you start with. So how can organisations and leaders help grow autonomous squads? In this talk Joakim Sunden will share his more than six years of experience from Spotify struggling with exactly this challenge.
Now a consultant at Crisp and co-author of Kanban in Action, Joakim Sundén worked as a leadership and team coach at Spotify during a period of massive growth for the company, guiding teams in Stockholm, San Francisco, New York and Boston towards a smoother Agile methodology that allowed for greater business alignment between teams and more effective software delivery.
