How to Résumé - Matt Ray

Family Systems Theory and DevOps - Seth Goings
Family Systems Theory is a huge topic inside of the already broad topic of psychology. There’s no way to cover it in 5 minutes… or is there? How might Family Systems Theory apply to this wild and crazy trend of DevOps? Could we be leading our DevOps efforts fundamentally wrong? This unique choose-your-own-adventure style Ignite talk will leave you questioning your own leadership and management methods and piquing your interest in becoming a well-differentiated leader.
