Hi Ian & Antonia!
I loved your presentation! Well actually it was very painful to watch as you called out many of the things our company is doing wrong :(
If I wanted to try and champion a call for change, where would you suggest I start? Should I bring this to the managers of the development teams?
Any advice you can offer would be much appreciated!
There are 2 layers of guidance that come to mind: team-level and company-wide. I'll cover team-level, then invite Antonia to offer company-wide. She is on an enablement team, after all.
For teams, I would encourage self-assessment. You don't have to get super scientific. Most people working on the software day-to-day will know where the problems are. Maybe just have a group voting session to build shared understanding of where the most pain lies. Antonia and I digested many sources to come up with our quick 8. If teams don't find enough inspiration in that, try Atlassian's Continuous Delivery content. Or if your team is ready for the most advanced concepts, try the book Accelerate, which is just over a couple years old.
Most teams these days have some kind of retrospective backlog or “20% time” in which they can take the small steps that we talked about. We believe that it is important for teams to have a shared understanding of what it means to perform well. From there, improvement is just a matter of incremental work on the obstacles. Getting better at delivering software is like building the bridge as you walk on it.
Antonia, what do you recommend for company-wide improvement?
