Krakow, Poland, 25 - 27 August 2021

Running in circles - how an organization ends up building the same application over and over

Methodology & Culture

Obviously the software creation process is a multi-facet affair. When the board sets a new direction for the company, commercial stakeholders need to come up with new ideas, POs build a product that fits the ideas, architects design, engineers implement. Congratulations all around! We have a new system! Too bad that it’s exactly the same as our old one… Let’s dive into why even when everyone at every stage of a project seems to want to build “the new”, we end up with same ol’ same ol’.

Scheduled on Thursday from 09:10 to 10:00 in Room 2
