The Cloud Native Leader

The Cloud Native Leader

New function in minutes, not months.

This 2 day workshop provides a comprehensive introduction to Cloud Native concepts for technical managers tasked with leading teams through a digital transformation and microservices implementation.

Cloud Native is much more than just adopting cloud technologies. Whether transforming an existing organisation or building a startup from scratch, success depends as much on a company’s culture and leadership as it does on choosing the best tech.

Combining a thorough review of the core concepts of Cloud Native with insights and best practices, this workshop offers you the opportunity to consider:

  • The Cloud Native approach, the benefits it can bring, and the pitfalls
  • Is a Cloud Native migration right for me?
  • How a Cloud Native and microservices approach align with organisational strategy
  • Proven ways to manage the transition to Cloud Native and microservices
  • How to effectively bridge company strategy and engineering requirements
  • Practices to excite and inspire colleagues to create a Cloud Native culture
  • How to fail, learn, adapt and repeat—safely

You will leave equipped with the tools you need to effectively support your own digital transformation.

Who should attend?

The workshop is designed for experienced technical managers who are leading teams of engineers on a Cloud Native journey that includes the implementation of microservices.

It does not require any foundation knowledge of microservices. However, a background in software engineering or architecture is an advantage, along with a basic understanding of cloud computing.

What can I expect?

The workshop will be highly interactive. We will encourage you to contribute your experiences and participate in activities and exercises designed to develop your understanding of a Cloud Native migration in the context of your own organisation.

You will leave with an understanding of the interface between the goals of your organization and your team, and the role of Cloud Native in your organisational strategy. You will gain some understanding of implementing microservices as part of the cultural and technical transformation.
