DevOps Days Portland 2018

Making it safe to distribute decision-making

Big companies are no longer guaranteed survival. Companies who move fast and pivot faster are disrupting them, largely due to an ability to make quick decisions. It seems that when companies grow larger their decision-making processes get slower. Lean leaders know that an ability to make quick decisions at scale comes when you empower those with the most information to make decisions but getting started can be terrifying. In this session, Julia will share how to alleviate management fears and embark on a safe journey of distributed decision-making.

    Pursuing lagom - finding balance between extremes

    These days it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of, well… everything. We seem to tackle our daily problems by adding more processes, more policies, more systems, and more work-in-process. This ends up accumulating disappointment instead of success when we don’t stop to understand what gets in our way. We don’t consider that, at least some of the time, more isn’t always better. It’s time to bring a little balance to the workforce with the concept of lagom (lah-gom). This tiny Swedish word represents the powerful concept of “not too much, not too little, just right.”
