Robbie what approaches have you tried for getting interest from pers to step up as security champions from business areas that might have some friction towards security culture. I’ve found it pretty easy to get interest from tech-savvy devs and those interested in security but struggle to foster interest from areas with less knowledge/interest in security

Mitun Zavery12:05:30

@lloyd.passingham It has been an interesting journey, providing ownership and guide rails help immensely, but also trying to reduce all risk to 0 is a fools errand. The way to bring more parts of the business in has worked well by providing visibility into what the issues are and what remediation steps to take. Parts of the business have been hounded historically by a list of vulns/risk, this is off putting hence the need to contextualise the problem and make it personal.

Tim Wyatt12:05:14

ask them? look for trends like drop in team performance?

Duena Blomstrom, Psychological Safety Dashboard CEO, Author PeopleBeforeTech12:05:52

Team happiness and psychological safety are measurable once you understand the components and behaviours going into the healthy dynamic of the team

James Hunter12:05:23

Great question. I started by asking for subjective opinion across my own teams.

Duena Blomstrom, Psychological Safety Dashboard CEO, Author PeopleBeforeTech12:05:54

Mental Health isn't a team aggregated measurement unless we add together the health of the individuals but the more PS there is in a team the more positive effect it has on their personal wellbeing

James Hunter12:05:34

After asking the teams I then looked at performance metrics but that requires numerous assumptions to draw any conclusion.

James Hunter12:05:13

More recently I have been looking at analysing comments and text within code using NLP to see if I can identify any trends.

AlignedDev (Omnitech Engineer)12:05:57

AlignedDev (Omnitech Engineer)12:05:34

so would you measure with surveys or rely on personal connections and "managers' reporting up the chain?

AlignedDev (Omnitech Engineer)12:05:06

what are some "components and behaviours going into the healthy dynamic of the team"?

Duena Blomstrom, Psychological Safety Dashboard CEO, Author PeopleBeforeTech13:05:30

Apologies, I missed this @logankd - we measure if they are Flexible, if they have strong emotional bonds, if they Speak Up, if they are Courageous, if they are Resilient, if they are Learning together and on the flip side if they refrain from Impression Management

How do you close those gaps in Dev without killing innovation?

Saket Kulkarni, Coach, Capgemini (he/him)13:05:28

It seems like an impossible task when you look at the number of dependencies some (even mid-sized) projects work with. While tools are definitely getting better, there’s no way for tooling to catch all the supply chain vectors. Is this just a question of hardening various security layers?

Ax Sharma13:05:46

Definitely. Although, I think we could compare this to a defense-in-depth approach, every security measure helps strengthen the supply-chain but no single measure may be a 100% effective by itself... be it an application firewall blocking suspicious dependencies (outright malware or dependency confusion PoC packages), or just any tooling scanning dependency for vulnerabilities. I've written extensively about these real-world examples.

Do you see any convergence with the practice of observability in terms of taking a stab at looking into unknown unknowns…maybe observing and querying security-related events in real-time?

Teams can handle this themselves, within teams we have custom roles - Release Manager is the person who can deploy to PROD - but this role can be applied to members in teams or in over-arching roles (such as release, scrum etc.)

Gus Paul - Morgan Stanley14:05:06

do you need to have any process to sign off flipping flags?

you're right @wiskow.sj...inevitably proving is important - proving the importance of focussing on flow, leading to improved delivery. That needs to be proven ...then scaled.

Sam Wiskow - Procter Gamble16:05:24

I'm finding lately that there can be a disconnect on the role of management and organisational leads and where they should play. Often I see a strong focus on the tooling instead of the background core business processes and organisation redesign. Then we end up in a half transformed state. Is there a good way to get org leaders to partner on the transformation, offering up organisation redesign along with tool and cultural changes?

Michael Bird - Senior Architect, UPMC14:05:55

Our approach to debt was to get the leaders to realize that we need both. Over our sprints we have some portion of time devoted to reducing debt and some portion devoted to delivering new value. The reduction of debt has value somewhere or it wouldn't be in your backlog, you just have to figure out how to quantify that to your leadership.

AlignedDev (Omnitech Engineer)14:05:30

James Simon14:05:17

James Simon14:05:30

but that "delivery" thing keep rearing its head

Andy Farmer - Tasktop15:05:32

A very very typical situation. So many threads to this challenge, from conflicting incentive structures and bonuses, to lack of data to justify the change - and more. But from what I have seen in my career so far - the most important thing is having someone at the executive level that genuinely cares about how improving how software is built and delivered. Someone that is willing to tackle the 'sacred cows' (like moving to focus on Value instead of just Costs, or breaking down the silos to align business and technology to Products). Someone who is willing to fight to 'move the needle' on the business results, manage the political aspects and break a few eggs on the way - rather than just deliver a pre-defined transformation project. If you or your company can find an executive or senior manager who is genuinely like that - just like in the Unicorn Project - then great things will result.. not just in terms of business results, but also in terms of employee happiness !!

Vlad Ukis09:05:40

"Transform While You Perform" is the challenge. However, I have not seen transformations running any other way. You need a small group of people in the org at different levels to pull off the transformation. 3-5 key people or so.

@justin7orbry thx so much for your insights. I loved your talk. So true. We are working by far too much on solutions which are not based on real problems.

I think the problem with Scrum is that you don't give it an honest try before adapting and the problem with Kanban is that you do parts of it to shirk on the parts of Scrum you didn't understand.

@ferrix points don’t make prizes and is done really done and from who’s perspective .. ?to work out if scrum is working for you find out how many instances of done are done from the external customers perspective ..

Ferrix Hovi - Head of DevOps - Siili15:05:16

This! It has been thought through but the thoughts never explained.

Great talk @justin7orbry. It would be great to see how much as a result of e2e/ system thinking and flow improvements, "Compressing the time from Idea to cash" has improved over time.

Adrian (Tasktop)14:05:45

Keep going. It sounds like a great journey and one well worth undertaking. I love it

Ferrix Hovi - Head of DevOps - Siili14:05:57

@justin7orbry I tend to ask the question: "When you say Scrum does not work for you, what's the reasoning behind that and how did you try to adapt it to your needs?"

Ferrix Hovi - Head of DevOps - Siili14:05:33

(I really love the few times when I got a mature answer...)

Adrian (Tasktop)14:05:36

I understood from @justin7orbry that the issue is not scrum per se, but a tendency to over-rely on the processes, ceremonies etc.....as opposed to how work is flowing and delivery of value is being improved.

@ferrix see above i answers in the thread 3:55

Ferrix Hovi - Head of DevOps - Siili15:05:41

Yeah, I think we're aligned on that thought. "Ceremonies without understanding are the biggest challenge for agility" is a quote from a wise man observing us do SAFe in 2010.

Loving the dialogue generated by @justin7orbry and @adrian.jones’s talk on business value - so many angles to this!

RE: 'many more' on Mik + One - goodness me, I had not realised quite how many DOES presenters have shared their insights via this podcast until I wrote these out 🀯 Justin Watts, Gene Kim, Pieter Jordaan, Robin Yeman, Maya Leibman, Ross Clanton, Matthew Skelton, Manuel Pais, Jon Smart, Rene Te-Strote and possibly more from previous years.. It is becoming quite the transformation cultural index!

They should be the same
