Moving Fast at Scale
April 8th 2019 16:00 - 16:20
As the research in Accelerate and in the DevOps Handbook shows, high-performing organizations deliver more rapidly, more repeatably, and more reliably. And as an organization scales, it becomes more and more important to get the product development process right. Drawing on the speaker's experiences leading high-performing organizations at Google and eBay, this session discusses the upstream parts of that process, focusing on organization, problem definition, and prioritization. We will discuss forming small, cross-functional teams with clear areas of responsibility. Then we will discuss the importance of clearly defining the problem we are trying to solve as a team. Finally, we will cover focus and prioritization -- how we decide what to do when. You will take away actionable techniques you can apply in your own organization.
