Session + Live Q&A

Optimising for Speed & Flow Panel

How do we join the dots between optimising for fast flow and a good engineering culture? How does a good engineering culture help organisations to sense and adapt? What technical and social practices does a good engineering culture need? What do we even mean by ‘a good engineering culture’? Why is this culture stuff always so hard?

Join the ‘Optimising for Speed and Fast Flow’ panellists - Emily Webber, Nick Tune, Richard James, and Victoria Morgan-Smith - for a lively discussion on how practices such as internal tech conferences, Communities of Practice, and a focus on psychological safety can help to foster a good engineering culture, enable diffuse learning, and begin to create learning organisations that are better able to sense and adapt to change.
