Thursday September 30, 2021 - 1:00-2:00pm AEST

Heiko Gerin, Head of Engineering, Thoughtworks Australia

Fact: high-performing teams are twice as likely to kick business goals than your average team. Investing in building high-performing teams not only improves team culture and morale, but it can have a direct impact on your organization’s bottom line. In this talk, we’ll look at the building blocks of high-performing teams and how you can turn your team from good to great. Walk away with knowledge on how to: Measure engineering effectiveness for individuals, teams and organizations, optimize both team happiness and productivity; and use tools like Developer Portals to empower teams.
