Coté has spent the past seven years studying how large organizations struggle and succeed at software. This talk is an omnibus of the problems and excuses people have for resisting change. Hurdles like compliance, security, executive apathy, DIY platform adventures, finance, and Big Bang blow ups. The audience can share the struggles and successes they've had during Q&A.

Take Aways

  • To change, you'll need more internal marketing and advocacy than you think.
  • Managers and executives need to change what they do, i.e., product manage the org.
  • Starting small and seeding people is the key to scaling change.
  • Most people think they've changed, but most haven't even begin, let alone put in the needed tooling.
