Today's leading minds talk DevOps with host Jon Collins

Summary

In this podcast, we speak to Claire Vo, Chief Product Officer at experimentation platform company Optimizely. We find out the importance of delivering an innovation culture based on:

  • hypothesis-based thinking as a starting point for test-and-learn practices accessible to any company
  • building both speed and confidence at scale - how to go faster and know you are building the right thing
  • tight feedback loops, both internal and customer-facing - and how to bring customers in
  • progressive delivery, through incremental working with customers, feature flagging and rollouts
  • making decisions based on data, rather than relying on intuition - you can’t move what you don’t measure

Overall, we learn how to engage with organizations where they are, building on visible innovation goals rather than setting the bar too high.
