“Making the Unknown Manageable“ - Ale Paredas, Code Climate, Head of Engineering
Congrats! You’ve just started out on your new role of Engineering Manager. It’s now the end of the quarter, and your team has not achieved its goals. You’re tasked with improving performance for the next quarter. This was my situation last October! I’ll share how I learned to use data to evaluate our state, identify opportunities for improvement, drive change and ultimately increase our delivery performance by 50%. You will leave this talk with practical tips on how to tackle new and unfamiliar challenges by using qualitative and quantitative data to understand your problem, propose changes and help your team navigate them successfully, ensuring those changes are having the desired impact!
