DevOps Exchange: Better Value Sooner Safer Happier - an evening with the Authors

26/02/2021  

DevOps Exchange was thrilled to host the authors of Better Value - Sooner, Safer, Happier, the new go-to book for implementing true business agility. 

"Sooner Safer Happier nails the point that many leaders miss - transformation in itself is not a worthy goal, it is a vehicle for optimizing business outcomes. This book provides and indispensable guide for leaders who wish to run truly agile organisations. It leaves no stone unturned. Smart, Berend, Ogilvie and Roher address the leadership challenges, cultural barriers and antipatterns that prevent too many organizations from realizing their potential in today's complex environment. They offer specific and immediately useful techniques for driving business results and a culture that reinforces continuous improvement long term. 

Sooner Safer Happier is a must-read for any business leader looking to succeed in a digital age" - David Silverman, co-author of Team of Teams, CEO of CrossLead. 

As well as sharing their combined wealth of experience, our speakers discussed the top 8 patterns and anti-patterns companies tend to experience when undergoing an Agile Transformation (drawing heavily on their own mistakes and learnings from over 100 companies surveyed for the book). It was a truly interactive event, with polls, attendees sharing their own barriers to success and an engaging Q&A portion of the event. 

If you're a business leader, or an individual contributor wanting to make a substantial difference, we'd highly recommend watching the event recording below.
