Lean IT Product Development: Learning Fast to Design the Right Digital Product
As everyone will have seen, the probability of failure of an IT project is directly correlated with its size. Many river projects have ended up being abandoned after two, four or seven years of hard work, shortened nights and tens of burnouts, even hundreds of millions of euros. "Too big to succeed".
These painful failures are always the consequence of a flawed preparation during the upstream study phase of product. Creating the wrong product is after all the worst possible form of waste.
What key problem does the product intend to solve?
What is the real current context in which the product operates within? What features are most critical?
Lean Digital engineering provides a key supportive tool applied to IT Product before rushing to foggy future.

Why Lean Is the Right Way to Scale Agile
When the agile manifesto was published in 2001, a wave of enthusiasm took over the developer community. Finally a decent, human-centered approach to development, full of common sense to replace the construction-inspired bureaucratic processes that were the state of the art at the time. But as the development community became more professional and the size of digital projects grew, bureaucracy came back. And this time with agile in its name.
How can we fight back against bureaucracy and bring back the enthusiasm of the early days, even at scale? Using our 12 years of experience pioneering agile, devops and lean on hundreds of successful software products, I will bring you back to the core DNA of the agile manifesto. And look at what research tells us on how we can scale it.
There is no silver bullet against bureaucracy... but lean combines 70 years worth of research on the topic of scaling while keeping the Big Company Disease away. This is the story of how we experimented with lean in software development to successfully scale the agile manifesto over the last ten years.

Lean for Robot-Run Business Processes
We look at how business processes would be 5 or 10 years from now. Will robots (Digital workers) be running lot of business processes? How will Robots and Humans collaborate? How would Lean contribute? How do you prepare for robotization of a process? Do you standardize first or automate first? How do you measure, analyze and continuously improve robot run processes? Can robots become self-improving?

Digital Revolution: The Right Answer to the Wrong Problem
Much is said about the application of agility in the digital transformations of companies, they all want to be connected in the most modern way, deploying Chatbots filled with artificial intelligence, Robotization for greater productivity and a lot of Big Data for strategic decision making. Vanity metrics make up the recognition of success, often masking the real situation experienced by customers.
