"We're in it Together" and Other Perspectives on Effective Product Development Culture (Circa 2023)
Have you watched those Spotify engineering culture videos? They were trendy and influential in the agile community but that was around nine years ago. What might we say about effective product development culture today? In this keynote, Jason Yip will share a summary of 2023-era effective product development culture based on his eight years at Spotify and 14 years at ThoughtWorks. This will include core beliefs, guiding principles, and core practices. Which ones will align with what you see at your workplace? Which ones will highlight opportunities for improvement? This keynote is not to encourage copying something that will become obsolete in another nine years, but instead to share an example of reflecting on effective product development culture to hopefully encourage your own ongoing reflection and improvement.
Jason Yip is a Senior Manager, Product Engineering at Grainger. He has been an agile coach, consultant, and practitioner since he first encountered extreme programming in 1999. Jason was previously a Staff Agile Coach at Spotify and a Principal Consultant at ThoughtWorks.
