Visualising the dynamics of component and feature teams
with Pierluigi Pugliese

Track: Games
Room: Level 2, North
Date: September 13, 2018
Start Time: 15:00


We all cognitively know how component teams are bad. In this interactive session we will simulate component teams and you’ll see how the dynamic they induce in organisation is even worse than we normally think.


In this session we will simulate an organisation based on component. Initially we will develop just one thing at the time and everything will work fine. But then the need to become more “efficient” will change the dynamics…

Please note: the session is limited to 22 active participants!

Learning objectives:

  • Learn a very simple and effective way to visualise the dynamics of component teams
  • Learn a tool to show how component teams are a big problem in organisations
  • Understand the difference between efficiency and effectiveness

Where is it?

The conference venue is in downtown Manhattan, so not too far from all major highways.
