Keynote 5

Leadership is Everyone’s Responsibility

Anne-Marie Charrett

11:45-12:45 CEST Friday 16th June

Modern software engineering concepts mostly embrace the “Quality is everyone’s responsibility” concept. Quality is something all teams own, even their leaders.

Because, we know that leadership is essential to amplify and advocate for quality. If we don’t, quality can get forgotten in the hubris of delivering features at speed. But it’s not any leadership; we need leadership that is comfortable in handling ambiguity that comes as a result of constant change and complexity.

I want our closing keynote to look to the future and explore a world where we all own leadership, regardless of our role and title. Software development is a social activity, and so is leadership. Join me!
