Engineering managers are facing challenges everyday. Challenges with conflicts of interest such as aggressive deadlines to build multiple new feature on top of tech debt, demands for engineering excellence while goal is focusing on short term revenue. Frequent organizational changes and re-alignment with moving target goals.
As a leader, we must encourage and guide team for their own growth while focusing on delivery. Yahoo has been experiencing major re-org at least once a quarter. Our portfolio is big and contains many products of different types. This session will share our experience as to how we overcome challenges and adapt to frequently changing environment without slowing down. In order to be successful, cultural and technical transformation must happen together hand in hand to build a culture and structure where changes can be accommodated as business as usual.
Lessons Learned from Your Experience:
  • Align team and process to accommodate changes anytime
  • Practice your sales pitch - WIIFM (What’s In It For Me?)
  • "Buy-in" from both top and bottom enables team for maximum possibility
  • Always consider scalability to minimize maintenance cost
