Bring Your Team Home Safely: What DevOps Teams Can Learn from Aircrews
United Flight 232 should have crashed with all 296 lives lost. Asiana Flight 214 should not have crashed at all. However, the actual outcomes were very different. Peter Varhol and Gerie Owen explain that the critical difference between the two flights was the interactions of their respective aircrews. Cockpit crew members work together to best utilize the skills of every team member to make flights safe. Using these principles, a DevOps team can bring their project safely home. The leader of a team is the final authority, but leaders must acknowledge team members’ knowledge and experience; that can make the difference between success and failure. Join Peter and Gerie to experience how you can apply aircrew practices to your team’s delivery of high-quality applications through complementary expertise, collaboration, and decision-making. You’ll learn how blind deference to authority and automation can be detrimental to a DevOps team, and how to use everyone’s skills to achieve success.
