For more than 8 years teams at Europace were working with agile methods like scrum and kanban as our development processes of choice. Within these years we learned a lot and evolved an understanding and mindset of "agile".
In 2015 we started looking for the next steps in agile. Therefore we adapted aspects of Holacracy and began to do experiments. The experiences we made were challenged by our understanding of a vision of self-organization. As a result we started an ongoing iterative integration of the insights of the experiences.
This talk shares the insights, experiences and failures we encountered so far. This talks aims to start an exchange of knowledge between everybody that has made similar experiences or experiments. Therefore this talk contains practical examples how responsibility and decision making were re-thought. Not only in a technical way like architecture, tools and prioritisation but also when it comes to recruiting, employer branding and salary.
