Head of Software Development, Tesco

Autonomous Teams @ Tesco

 

Adopting autonomous teams at scale is a challenge. Hear about Tesco’s experiences in their on-going transformation towards continuous delivery, the cultural and technical challenges and  whether NoOps can sometimes be an answer.

Steve has 17 years’ experience building software, leading teams and transforming organisations. He was first introduced to agile methods with XP in the late 90s and hasn’t looked back.
Since then he’s gained experience in Scrum, Kanban & Evo amongst others. Working primarily in the finance and ecommerce domains, Steve’s focus has been on building large scale, highly available systems that can support the continuous delivery approach needed to enable better products, faster time to market and happier teams. Steve currently heads up the Identity platform at Tesco.
