Roundtable discussion: Building Engineering Platform Teams
Nowadays, more and more companies are building internal platform teams with the intention to increase their efficiency and speed up delivery. To make such teams efficient and prevent them from becoming a catch-all place for problems nobody else wants to tackle requires a clear strategy and change of the organization’s operating model. Jiří Brunclík will host a discussion about what makes a good platform team and how to bootstrap it from scratch.
How do roundtable discussions work?
- Every roundtable discussion includes 5 active participants and a moderator to run the discussion.
- Each participant will prepare a question about the chosen topic to discuss. Please come prepared with a question and be prepared to discuss the questions other participants ask.
- The roundtable discussion lasts a total of 40 minutes, including:
o 5 MINUTES: A quick introduction from each participant about who you are and what you do.
o 35 MINUTES: Interactive discussions about each question (7 minutes per question).
- Other conference attendees are welcome to quietly watch the roundtable discussion. There will always be about 15 chairs set up for an audience. We’ll also be live streaming the discussion for attendees who can’t attend in person
Don't worry if you run out of time! Feel free to continue talking with other participants after the official roundtable discussion ends.
