A lot has been written and said about the added value of feature teams. Feature teams reduce the complexity and waste of external dependencies, have more focus on delivering real customer value and bring more autonomy to the people involved in the delivery of the product every single day at work. Organizations aiming to reach true Agility in the market better transform their component teams to feature teams soon!

It’s all easier said than done though; especially for the organizations that were around way before the Agile era. ING Bank is one of those organizations where most teams were built around components for many years. But ING Bank is also an organization that understands the necessity of being able to respond fast to the demands of the customer and has therefore progressed in the transformation of their old way of working to an Agile way of working. Forming feature teams, including business and IT, is an important challenge and step in this transformation.

Where do you start if you would like to transform existing component teams into effective feature teams while keeping the ship afloat? What steps do you need to take and who do you involve at specific parts in this process? Do we actually see improvements in the current status yet?

Maurice van Wijk and Nienke Alma, Agile Coaches at ING Bank, have been closely involved in a challenging, but also inspiring journey from component teams to feature teams. The road from preparations, how to get all parties on board, the needed steps and sessions ending in self-selections and kick-off of newly rising feature teams. In this presentation they will explain what approach they have followed and share their experiences. You will explore together with them what worked well and may work for you, what could be done differently in the next journey, and their next steps.
