Keynote - Build a Work From Wherever, Whenever Culture for DevOps Teams
Date & Time
Thursday, May 4, 2023, 1:45 PM - 2:15 PM

Since COVID-19 sent us home, technology professionals are increasingly opting for fully remote, hybrid, or ‘Work from Wherever, Whenever’ roles – and rejecting those with restrictive in-office policies.

The canonical tenets of DevOps – collaboration, communication, and integration between teams like Dev and Ops – are also critical to enabling a remote or hybrid workforce; however, many key DevOps principles are also confounded by the lack of personal presence or in-office teams. 

This session will explore the mechanics of a successful ‘Work from Wherever, Whenever’ program for DevOps teams, aimed at driving productivity, attracting and retaining top talent, while providing a safe and satisfying work environment. Key topics will include policy definition, teaming models, data-driven decisions, metrics that matter, performance management, communication standards, technology assistance, cultural leadership, innovation programs, not being creepy, and especially the cultural leadership required to lead a successful, productive, and happy WfWW technology team.
