Large organization are desperate to become “tech companies.” They drool at these tech companies ability to grow and change quickly. Despite mastering agile over the past 20 years, IT as a whole is too slow and unreliable. “It’s the culture,” everyone says. Changing culture for a team of 10 people is easy - changing a department of 20,000 developers is another challenge entirely. Based on case studies and interviews over the past five years, Michael will explore how large organizations are getting over that challenge. First, you will learn about moving from a project to a product mindset and the associated practices. Second, Michael will cover how DevOps and cloud platforms enable that product mindset.
