When I was young and naive, I gave a talk called, "What our product development teams did to reach 0 bugs and CRUSH the tech debt curve." Now I know better. The more interesting story is the context behind those successes and how that context equips us to tackle future challenges--or not.
No, this talk is not about the latest new process or technique. We don't get to clean code, strong performing products, and successful software teams by implementing processes. Successful teams are built by the people on those teams. Come with me on a journey through force field analysis, systems thinking, and kinetics to unlock the secrets of emergent culture.
