How often has your engineering team been given an Epic to work on complete with user stories specifying grandeur designs and technical solutions? More often than not, engineers need to rip this apart to make it technically feasible. As an engineering leader at Hootsuite, Tyler Brown recognized this problem and responded by creating a concept called "Epic Champions". Epic Champions enables engineers to own an Epic from initial ideation through delivery and work with product and design to make the feature hit the mark every time. In this session Tyler will walk you through the Epic Champions concept and teach you how to trust and empower engineers to ultimately build higher quality software that truly meets customers needs.
