Session Name: Data-Driven Software Engineering - The Future of High-Performance
"Many of the top companies today are using metrics and KPIs to measure performance which is valuable when used correctly. Organizations feel more empowered when they see the business succeeding and individuals can visualize their own role in making it happen. Now more than ever, teams are engaging with data, and requesting more data in order to do their jobs better, quicker and happier. However, it’s just as important to understand what to do with this data once procured - a challenge many organizations face with data overload.
In this session, we will discuss data-driven software engineering, how it can improve business outcomes and individual performance, as well as common challenges when utilizing KPIs and metrics. Attendees will learn the five major components of data-driven software engineering, including:
Positive Behavioral Metrics
In addition to learning these components, attendees will also receive insights into specific challenges that may arise from a data-driven approach as well as best practices for overcoming them. We will also delve into the best ways to get a data-driven performance program off and running, and doing so in a cost-effective manner. Finally, attendees will learn how supplementing this approach with positive behavioral metrics can yield quicker, better results.
Using first-hand experience, Jonathan will give attendees a step-by-step walkthrough of data-driven software engineering and show how this approach could change the culture of an organization and boost overall performance!"
