Title: Tools aren't just about tech
There are foundational reasons why collaboration and communication is highly valued by the Agile and DevOps communities. However, much of the industry focuses on software tooling, rather than providing foundations to help with improving culture. When the industry thinks about the human parts of Agile and DevOps, they often think about things like Scrum, Kanban, Extreme Programming, or alternatively, how much they will not do one of those things. Yet experienced practitioners will tell you that the standard methodologies like Scrum and Kanban are significantly less important than the method you use to communicate with your coworkers.
This session will explore the Open Decision Framework, a FOSS project management and decision-making resource built upon the foundational principles of open source: transparency, collaboration, community, rapid prototyping, and meritocracy.
You will get tips and ideas for how to gain support and buy-in for your ideas, manage conflicting opinions and priorities, limit unintended impacts, and help improve the overall trust across your team and organization by focusing on transparent decision-making.
