The talk: Optimizing for a fast flow of value with adaptive, socio-technical systems

In today’s fast-paced business environment, it’s essential for organizations to continuously adapt and evolve to remain competitive and stay relevant in the market. How to build systems that can thrive in the face of constant change? This talk explores the synergy of Wardley Mapping, Domain-Driven Design (DDD), and Team Topologies as a holistic approach to building adaptive systems optimized for a fast, sustainable flow of value and feedback.

Key takeaways:

  • Anticipating change and identifying areas where to invest or to outsource to gain competitive advantage and efficiency
  • Identifying and unlocking blockers to flow
  • Aligning teams and evolving their interactions to the system and strategy

Why I look forward to this talk 

Our next speaker is to my great happiness Susanne Kaiser! It was hard to get her onboard, but here she is! :)

Susanne, standing deep in tech, is helping us to see how slightly less technical concepts such as Wardley mapping and Team Topologies can fit in with all the tech and leverage it all.

She is currently working on her upcoming book Adaptive Systems With Domain-Driven Design, Wardley Mapping, and Team Topologies: Architecture for Flow. Judging by an early draft, it’s going to be a must-read!

That said, the book won’t be able to replace the experience of listening to her thoughts in real time, hanging out with her, and discussing interesting situations with her! And that’s why we asked her to be one of our speakers at myConf 2024.

My guess is that after her presentation you will have a moment of “Wow, everything felt mind-blowing and made perfect sense at the same time!”. I don’t do bets, so saying this is just talking from what I know. We’ll see if you agree.

Thanks a lot, Susanne, for joining and for making myConf 2024 amazing!
