Current sessions

Feedback: how I survived for 10 years in the world of software and IT consulting companies

During this session, I will share with you what I experienced during the 10 years I spent in the world of software and IT consulting companies. This story begins on September 1st 2009, the day I started as a trainee in a small software enginering services company. From dev to technical lead, passing through the project manager's box, we will briefly see the main milestones of my progression. But we'll mostly focus on the many anecdotes from firefighter missions to risky projects with high added value :). This session will present the main flaws that I have identified and will eventually provide some recommendations. Finally, we will see how the story ended on May 6, 2019.


Stop running into circles and ship what is really needed thanks to Shape Up

Are you tired of the V-cycle and traditional product management? You have tried agility and its different variations but the mayonnaise did not take? Then this session is for you, come and discover the Shape Up methodology! Created and used by an American startup, this pragmatic approach has become a reference for many unicorns (Alan, The Fork, etc.). This session will present the particularities of this method and then we will give a feedback on its daily use.
