Continuous Delivery makes it possible to exploit findings of cognitive psychology and neuroscience to increase the productivity and happiness of our teams. This session will highlight fascinating academic research that answers:
• How can we improve will power and decrease technical debt?
• Is the present bias real? How can we turn it to our advantage?
• Can you increase a team’s effective IQ?
• How do DevOps and Product Teams increase empathy, and what impact does empathy have on productivity?
The OECD and Bank Of England are both puzzled over missing productivity. Are we failing to exploit the benefits of modern technology by running our software businesses and teams as if they’re post-war factories, rather than continuously delivering?
