Seven technical and business practices to create (and keep) sustainable pace


Matt Philip (agile coach/trainer, ThoughtWorks) Matt has worked in software development for more than 10 years, and in agile teams since 2006, as a coach, trainer, QA lead, tester and facilitator. He is particularly passionate about behavior-driven development, lean-kanban, continual improvement, whole-team approach and gamification. 


In the 10+ years since the manifesto, agilists have taken a lot of the principles to heart. But one that typically still seems difficult to do is sustainable pace -- that sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely. This talk explores reasons why sustainable pace is difficult to achieve and offers seven technical and business practices and attitudes to create, and more importantly, maintain sustainable pace. It does so by bringing in experiences from actual agile projects, as well as examples from other domains (e.g., energy, agriculture).

Benefits for the attendees

Participants will: Learn how to anticipate inhibitors to sustainable pace Learn how to measure sustainability Hear about how agile teams have dealt with unsustainability Understand how to create sustainable pace in their teams and organizations
