Summary

  • Why do teammates resist technical changes?
    • Context is power; the bigger the change, the bigger the impact to shared context. Invalidating a bunch of someone’s context can disempower them in ways that concern them, both absolutely and relative to other team members.
  • Why the Hollywood approach to presenting big changes doesn’t work.
  • A stepwise approach to achieving team buy-in.

For who?

This workshop is targeted at Senior Engineers, Tech Leads, Engineering Managers, and Product Managers.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the underlying reason for teammates to unexpectedly resist an idea.
  • Learn how to socialize changes among your technical team.
  • Learn to talk to colleagues about changing decisions that they feel attached to.

Requirements

You have some experience writing on production systems in any programming language.

About Chelsea Troy

"I write code for money, fling barbells for fun, and write about tech for jack diddly at chelseatroy.com."

Chelsea writes code on projects like the Zooniverse Citizen Science Mobile App and the NASA Landsat Image Processing Pipeline. She looks for clients who are saving the planet, advancing basic scientific research, or providing resources to underserved communities. She has been known to take projects in mobile development, web development, and machine learning. She streams some programming sessions to YouTube, so you can watch her code (and narrate!) in real time. She then turns the recordings into educational materials.

Chelsea also teaches Mobile Software Development at the Master’s Program in Computer Science at the University of Chicago. She is the author of chelseatroy.com and a book called Remote Work Sucks (the title is kind of a trap). She organizes two conferences: PromptConf (Chicago area, very technical) and ORD Camp (Chicago area, not nearly as technical).

Chelsea flings barbells around for fun. She drives an electric cafe cruiser named Gigi. She's very gay.
