Session Name: DevOps and Wiring the Winning Organization
"In this talk, I’ll present some of my top learnings from my 24 years studying high-performing technology organizations. In The Unicorn Project, I attempt to frame what I’ve learned by studying technology leaders adopting DevOps principles and patterns in large, complex organizations, often having to fight deeply entrenched orthodoxies. And yet, despite huge obstacles, they create incredibly effective and innovative teams that create beacons of greatness that inspire us all.
I will also share the work I’ve been doing with Dr. Steven Spear towards a theory of organizations, describing how organizational structure and architecture may be one of the best leading indicators of performance. This work is featured in our upcoming book, “Wiring The Winning Organization,” coming November 2023."
