Mystes welcomes you to a full day, hands-on workshop in Helsinki with Vasco Duarte. We will explore why software projects fail so often and how we can improve them based on concepts from Chaos Theory.

Why attend?

Chaos is nowadays used to guide many different fields, from the study of the atmosphere to the design of urban transportation networks. This workshop will help you create a modern model for software projects and Knowledge Work in general, and be more successful with agile projects.

Who is it for?

The workshop is suitable for developers, agile team leads, project managers, product owners, and other professionals who want to update their views on agile project work and address common problems associated with adopting agile.

Workshop topics

  • Current theoretical base for managing projects
  • What is wrong with managing software projects today and why?
  • What can we learn from Chaos Theory and how to apply it in real life projects?
  • A model for a successful project using what we have learned from Chaos Theory

Foreword from Vasco Duarte

You, like I, probably think that Newton's Laws are Universal. I did, and so did the scientific community until Chaos Theory emerged. Chaos Theory came to be a new form of science—one that looks at the world that is not static, where many aspects can influence the behavior of the atmosphere, for example.

Have you heard of the Butterfly Effect? It actually exists also in your project!
