Dashboards and Culture: How Openness changes your Behaviour

Much of the adoption of DevOps tools and processes focus on the benefits to delivering high quality code on an industrial scale. Although we all recognise that good monitoring is critical to the availability of a service it may not be obvious that the act of monitoring can have a profound effect on the attitudes and culture of the teams involved. The right sort of monitoring and appropriate dash-boarding can improve the morale and effectiveness of all the teams involved. The wrong sort of monitoring or badly considered dash-boards can have the opposite effect. This talk examines how what you share will define you. Through real examples and live demos the speakers will show you how to design status and trend displays etc that will make your teams more effective without overloading them. The talk will also include case studies with various types of teams to highlight how you can apply this thinking to help make any group more effective.
