The Continuous Integration Approach to Engineering Leadership

Sometimes the most powerful tool for teams is confidence, but especially during times of rapid change and uncertainty, it can be hard to come by.

Confidence in their code. Confidence in their processes. Confidence in their organization. This is why it’s more important than ever that today’s leaders know when to pull themselves out to create and maintain sight of the bigger picture – and are confident in their ability to continuously evolve.

With the right leadership mindset and systems in place, it’s possible for teams of all sizes, across all timezones, to measure confidently, identify failures quickly, and make informed changes. 

In this session, attendees will learn: 

  • How to create a culture of visibility and accountability in fast-growing organizations
  • Practical tips for leading teams to effectively set goals, pivot, navigate change and continuously learn 
  • CI-based leadership frameworks that create faster feedback loops for teams
