Here is the program of our next bathtub conference taking place online on 2nd of July 2013, 9:00PM CEST.
Scaling agile from small startup through rapid growth
In a few years Spotify has grown from a small startup in Sweden to a pretty big company with more than 40 engineering teams in four different development offices on two different continents. And we have no intention of slowing down. Such rapid growth carries big challenges. How can we continue to improve our product at great speed, while growing the number of users, employees and supported platforms and devices? How do we stay lean and agile when we grow from a small startup to a big corporation? In this talk I will present how Spotify is addressing these challenges. I will talk about autonomy as a guiding principle, and how we have structured ourselves to support autonomy and create alignment throughout the organization.

He also strives to support the organization to improve and adapt to changes. Anders has written articles and presented at several conferences.
Scaling Scrum - What Big Players can Learn from Startups
When big players start introducing agile & lean, this is often seen as an software development issue. The huge potential to adapt an organisation to gain speed, efficiency, flexibility and fun is left unused for all sorts of reasons. Time to consider a different approach to scale Scrum – decouple your organisation instead of introducing complexity.

Systemic Coaching and Agile Teams
Systemic coaching is becoming a useful technique to employ when coaching agile teams.

He will then conclude by giving an example of systemic coaching in the context of a retrospective.
