As an engineer tasked with keeping large-scale software systems running under changing priorities and time pressure, you need REsilience capabilities that are both technical and organizational to successfully navigate modern software engineering work. These capabilities are to expertly:
- REcognize subtly changing events to provide early assessment and action;
- REvise your mental model in real-time of how adjust your actions;
- REplan in real time as conditions change;
- REconfigure your available technical and human resources;
- REview performance for continuous learning.
In this talk you’ll learn 5 practical resilience strategies- drawn from research on aiding human performance in complex, adaptive systems- that you can use to better anticipate and adapt to change in order to reduce stress, improve performance outcomes, and coordinate more effectively in your work
