Engineering Leadership SIG: The Human Dimension in Leadership to Effective Product Development



  • Topic: The Human Dimension in Leadership to Fast, Effective and Scalable Product Development


    Most Engineering teams never get a chance to show their full potential. Leaders in fast-growing companies have learned to accept average team results, day-to-day stress and constant last-minute surprises in their deadline struggles. Why is this the way most high-tech companies approach software or product development? Why live with organizational tension and eventual team burnout when there are proven ways to get better products out faster and create a culture of happy teams? In this interactive and stimulating talk, engineering leaders at all levels will experience a paradigm shift in their level of thinking, which is the first step towards needed transformational change in R&D organizations so they can scale from successful start-ups to efficient, mature, market-leading companies. Corinne Rattay is an expert in R&D Transformation leveraging her engineering leadership experience at Juniper Networks. She will share exciting, personal insights and experiences she has gained in over a decade as engineering leader and director, explaining the crucial foundation of the human dimension in leadership combined with key product lifecycle processes that truly work.
