Technical teams need to be able to adapt, recover, and thrive despite changing requirements, failures, game changing technical advancements, and of course all the while keep tabs on costs and efficiency. An organization’s leadership must build a robust foundation of trust and ensure every individual developer has the agency and autonomy to act within boundaries of acceptable risk. This requires strategic thinking, adaptability, and tactical actions to improve the culture of resiliency each and every day.
This track will dive into approaches teams and engineering leaders have taken to improve the resiliency of their organization over time. It will highlight tactical tools that empower individuals and contribute to the health and efficiency of the collective team. Speakers will also present frameworks that help put structure around the cultural shift necessary to build safety and autonomy. And of course, what would a track be without a nod towards GenAI? We will look at how AI tools like prompt libraries can improve organizational resiliency.
