Will you be speaking @chris.gallivan - sharing your experience?

Not this year @olivier.jacques

Would you be willing to share a little about the way the event changed things for you, @chris.gallivan ?

Chris Gallivan, FCA, Builder of JOY12:10:23

Sure. I was the head of QA at FiatChrysler. From a mindset point of view, the event caused me to think broader and consider the entire value stream rather than my QA silo. I wound up tearing down my silo and seizing the role of DevOps and Agile enablement at FiatChrysler. I met a community of practitioners (Dojo Consortium) from 50+ large companies- we have been in a continuous conversation on slack since 2016. I stood up a DevOps Dojo at FCA and built a CI/CD platform team. With the help of many friends, my career and the trajectory of my company have changed. I even setup an internal conference called ADaPT at FCA and “brought the conference to the people”. A simple conference has changed so much more than I would have ever believed!

@bryan.finster has been a true mentor to me along this journey. He works for a small retailer in Arkansas:)

I took a “Mecca” trip to Target as well, paid my own way when the company wouldn’t sponsor and drove ten hours..

Chris Gallivan, FCA, Builder of JOY12:10:57

All driven by the desire to make lives better and to payback the debt I owe to this community

If I wasn’t so busy working the work, I would have wrapped this in a presentation- maybe next year

Thanks Chris, that’s a very inspiring story, especially building that inside an org the size of FCA.
