Moving on Up – Sarah Glanville & Paul Lemon – Sky – Software Delivery 2016

 

Agile at Sky : As Gold sponsors we were delighted to welcome the Sky team to Agile on the Beach and their great lunchtime session on Agile at Sky with Head of Technology Paul Lemon and Scrum Master, Sarah Glanville.

Moving on Up

Building a brand new agile team of over 100 people in 4 months is an exciting, challenging and rewarding task and Sarah and Paul will talk through the highs and lows and share their learnings from doing this. Sky are creating a brand new digital centre in Leeds, the heart of the Northern Powerhouse and this talk will share the experience of the first team to land in Leeds. How do you seed the culture, recruit the right people, set up the correct working practises and continue to deliver a committed roadmap?
