The transition happened from the Industrial Age to the Waterfall Age. The Waterfall resolved the concerns to an extent; however, it laid the foundation for a new set of issues. Then the focus shifted to RUP, Spiral, V models and finally to Scrum, XP, Lean, Kanban, Scaling Agile, etc.
However, no framework or methodology can solve the concerns without having a Good Engineering Culture. The Culture undoubtedly consists of People and the surrounding Processes & Practices to help them (& not act as Blockers) to achieve the ever changing Definition of Success.
In this context, this talk will emphasize to shift our focus from the Leadership-Powerpoint Slides to our Engineering Culture. It will highlight the Problems and an attempt to answer the same by taking good case studies of Companies like Spotify, 3M, etc. We will talk about philosophies like M3.0, Holocracy, Tribal Leadership, etc and Engineering practices like Pair Programming, Continuous Integration, etc. We will also focus on the Roles of PO, SM, Developers, UX and the Leadership to shift to better Engineering Culture for the overall success of the Employees, Teams, Products and the Company on the whole.
Ina a nutshell, this talk underlines the importance of Alignment of Leadership’s Vision with Actual-on-the-ground Engineering Culture to achieve a Win-Win situation.
