Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Let's put aside the "bubblegum and unicorns" of the Spotify Engineering Culture videos and talk about what doesn't quite work at Spotify and how we're trying to solve it. This is a failure / learning report intended for coaches and other change agents who need encouragement that it's always hard AND it's always possible to improve.
The talk will feature the different perspectives of two coaches: one of the first coaches at Spotify who grew up with "the Spotify model" and one of our more recent coaches coming from a company trying to implement it.

Learning Outcomes:
  • * Spotify is used as a framework/model copied by others, but Spotify's model isn't without challenges even for Spotify
  • * Encouragement that it's always hard AND it's always possible to improve
  • * It's great to be inspired by others but at the end of the day you need to face your difficulties and solve your problems yourself
  • *You can succeed with autonomy by never giving up; it comes with challenges and benefits
