Building Healthy Agile and DevOps Teams

Add to calendar

The tools and technologies our teams rely on to build solutions are changing faster every day. New frameworks, new tools, transformations to DevOps, and migrations to public cloud are all putting strain on our teams. These changes drive a natural entropy as individuals become key person dependencies, hurting quality and throughput, and leading to morale issues and attrition. Lee Eason has been watching this happen over the past several years and has developed both a tool and an approach to address it. You will learn practical approaches to help you build a culture of continuous learning on your teams, to meet these challenges face on. With a thoughtful approach, you can build a team of T-Shaped professionals that help you use technology innovations to your advantage. Join Lee to learn how to adapt your current processes to identify skill gaps, then motivate and enable team members to ensure critical capability is adequately spread across your team.
