Continuous Delivery

Understanding that an organization is only as fast as its slowest part, this workshop delves into using a metrics-driven approach to improve overall effectiveness, leading to increased engineering outputs and overall business impact. Starting with building a solid data foundation, identifying metrics that genuinely matter to an organization, and building a culture that supports innovation are all areas we will focus on in this workshop. We aim to equip participants with actionable knowledge and tools they can use to start their journey.


  • Understanding your Developer Experience Goals and Culture: You can't get to where you want to go until you know where you are
  • Organizational metrics that matter: Ensuring software engineering aligns with true business impact
  • DX, Engineering, and Platform Metrics: What organizational inertia is your development community fighting against on a day-to-day basis
  • How to build throughlines across the SDLC that align goals and hypotheses to engineering outcomes
  • Where and How to inject GenAI: Gain hands-on experience and confidence in integrating generative AI tools across your ecosystem.
  • Boosted Productivity across Teams: Through practical exercises in teams, attendees will learn strategies for increased productivity across the board.
  • Innovation and Competitive Edge: Explore and prototype new uses of generative AI in development workflows
  • Continuous Improvement: By showcasing the potential of generative AI to streamline processes and improve efficiency, the workshop aims to foster a culture of constant improvement, where teams are motivated to enhance the developer experience and organizational efficiency consistently

Recommended attendees:

  • Decision makers in the organization (SVP, VP, Directors and Managers)
  • Product Managers: Technical and business product managers helping organizations build critical capabilities
