About the session

Are you tired of having the same conversations, delivering "late" and being put under pressure for decisions you didn't even make? 

In this session, Julie will walk through how they managed to flip the script in a highly regulated, risk-averse, financial institution by introducing probabilistic forecasting and flow metrics as well as ditching wasteful estimations.

She'll cover what you need to get started (very little!) and explore things she wishes they had known when they started their journey, including what is involved in making the mindset shift at an organisational level.

Julie will also share some of the success stories they've seen, which include teams improving their ways of working based on data as well as critical decisions being made by stakeholders at the earliest possible opportunity rather than when they've missed a deadline.

Probabilistic forecasting has helped move their risk-averse stakeholders away from traditional and comfortable but ultimately higher-risk ways of working. However, they're still on a journey and there's much more to come, so Julie will also cover where they're going next and how they're using this alongside DORA metrics.

Themes:
Product, Data Driven, Flow Metrics, Probabilistic Forecasting, Solving Problems not Symptoms, Forecasting over Time, Mitigating Risk, Managing Expectations, Delivering Value, Metrics & Measures, #NoEstimates
