21st August 2019 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at Keynote by Ryn Daniels on Designing Sustainable Ops Cultures

Every organization needs to consider how to make its operations culture sustainable. One aspect of making a workplace culture sustainable for the humans in it is burnout. This talk will look at ways to design an engineering culture in a way that can prevent burnout on operations teams. It will discuss the different factors that contribute to burnout and how those can manifest in modern ops environments, the ideas around resilient culture design and how both ops managers and ICs can make concrete changes to build more sustainable on-call practices.
