How to build an award winning (Drupal) team

Prerequisites

Attendees will get the most out of this session when they have at least some experience in leading one or more (development) teams.

Session details

Operating an agency is challenging. Self-steering teams and agile ways of working are the future, but in reality, only a few (Drupal) agencies have successfully put this into practice. As a company, it took us four years to transform to a future proof agency. After our transition (which is always in progress), we were finally able to scale beyond the infamous 30 people mark while at the same significantly increasing:

  • Team joy,
  • Team healthiness,
  • Scalability,
  • Product quality (and awards),
  • Revenue and margins.

This session will follow both my personal and my agency's journey in learning how to organise our agency in the best possible way. I will explain how we defined our cultural values, implemented (parts of) the Spotify model and made it our own, combine (Scrum) sprints with ad-hoc issues and tickets, changed the way we have meetings and more. Along the way, I will also share the sources of our inspiration, from articles to books, and hopefully, they can also help your organisation.

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
