Applying Lean Startup Principles at Enterprise Scale
How do you take a gigantic organization like PayPal that was entrenched in a culture of a ""long shelf life"" and transform it to a culture of rapid experimentation? Bill will give 3 principles applied to PayPal engineering to make it a full partner with Lean UX. This will be illustrated by showing how they re-factored the tech stack and changed the way engineers work in Lean streams with design & product partners and how it plays with agile.
As a backdrop Bill will discuss several historical factors in the field of software engineering that are antithetical to the Lean Startup mindset but still find their way into most large enterprises. By understanding this historical context and applying lean principles he will demonstrate how a lean transformation can take place in any enterprise.
Speaker Bio: Bill Scott
Bill has always been passionate about software engineering (30 years). And just as passionate to understand how humans interact with software. For a long time he couldn't decide if he was an engineer or a designer. He finally gave up trying to classify himself and just decided to live in both worlds as much as possible.
