Thema: Team Together

Teamwork can be a challenge - no matter if you're coordinating a single team or have to work across teams.

Talk 1:

Less Process, more Guidance with the Atlassian Team Playbook 🇬🇧

Teams are different, projects are different, problems are different. Why are we still trying to squeeze teamwork into processes that makes it harder and much slower to get work done?

Learn how creating a Team Playbook by collecting practices from all teams in an organizations can help. No end-to-end process, no strict development rules, just some guidelines. You’ll learn tons of plays like:

  • goal setting with OKRs
  • decision making with DACIs
  • eam improvements with health monitors
  • finding risks with premortem’s
  • and many more 

This talk will teach you how to utilize a playbook for more autonomy by providing teams with the freedom to pick what works in their environment.

Talk 2:

How Integrated Test Management Keeps SBB on Track 🇬🇧

While Developers, Architects, Requirement Engineers, Product Owners and others had already moved to Jira and Confluence, Swiss Federal Railway’s test engineers were left behind with HP ALM. Shortly after, problems that started as misunderstandings had escalated into complete communication silos—and even refusal to work between teams.

But there was a bright spot: independently and of free will, the teams started working in parallel to move off their outdated tools and transition to a better collaboration model.

Join Andreas Wieczorek as he explores that transition, the challenges they faced, and the benefits of using tightly connected tools with the same UX to empower diverse roles and skillsets to work together better than before with a fully integrated Atlassian solution.

Andreas Wieczorek, SBB Schweizer Bundesbahn

Andreas has tested software since his first job in parallel to studying computer science in 1998. He went from Tester, Test Engineer and Test Manager at E-Plus (now part of Telefonica) to be a Consultant at Capgemini Consulting, and then to Test Manager again at a swiss IT company, trivadis. His career as a Test Manager made a permanent change 9 years ago thanks to Scrum. Today he is leading his team of Test Engineers at Swiss Federal Railways SBB, consults in regard to testing, and is an embedded tester, test engineer or Trainer for Agile Testing, depending on which of his skills is needed most. He loves new technologies and promotes the agile movement as a way to a better team collaboration and to do those organizational changes that in the end will lead to a better customer experience.
