A just culture is one where organizations and their people value resilience and improvement. It is one where leadership and their people can admit mistakes, accept failure, and jointly feel accountable to learning and improving. This track will provide practices and processes that demonstrate how both psychological safety and safety engineering can lead to higher quality software and happier teams. It will talk about moving beyond just blameless postmortems and retrospectives to building a culture where folks are rewarded for being the messenger. Topics will include incident management techniques, risk management practices, and learning practices.
