Cloud Native Bedtime Stories – Terrifying Execs into Action
Anyone embedded in cloud native teams in any organization can voice their frustrations at not being taken seriously by their executive decision makers. This leads to way too much on-call stress, frustrations, and eventual burnout. With DevOps spending +10 hrs a week on issues, we could all use quick action by our executives when we find ways to fix our issues. The trick is to tell our tales in such a way as to engage, inspire, and effect change in our organizations. This session provides attendees with cloud native bedtime story examples that make your tales land within the executive human mind, and actionable insights to head home with immediate results. Join me for a half hour of power where you are empowered to tell better cloud native stories for better executive decision outcomes.
Key takeaways – Attendees to this session will be given a small yet powerful set of examples to help them effectively use their cloud native tales to motivate executives into action. Humans listen to stories (tales) more than they pay attention to pages of charts, dashboards, and data. Learn how to tell your tales, terrifying and educational, with tips and tricks to engage your executives into believing your need for organization’s cloud native improvements.
