Presentation: Building Resilient Tech Organisations to Survive and Thrive through the Periods of Change

Technology leaders are often focused on solving today’s challenges, and yet – as the past year has taught us – business context can and does change year after year. Sometimes that requires significant growth, or reducing the investment into tech, or pivot in terms of the technology being built. In order to adapt, our tech organisations need to be thoughtfully built with resilience principles in mind.

Key takeaways:

  • Hiring generalists and investing in continuous growth of your engineers is one of the best people investments you can make.  
  • Social bonds and shared purpose keep employees engaged even through the times of change. 
  • Incentives and an org structure are a powerful tool to avoid territorialism.
