As we grew from 100 to 200 engineers and as we scaled from a single monolith to hundreds of microservices, the quality of our system was lagging and accountability for fixing it was distributed (and lax).

We had a great culture where teams were given autonomy to succeed but we lacked the alignment across our organization to deliver on the performance and reliability targets our customers needed.

I'd like to share the slow and arduous journey of leading cultural change within a medium size Engineering organization that's learning to be data-driven. In particular, I will highlight the successes we've had in adopting health scorecards and Service Level Objectives and the failures we've seen in adopting OKRs.

My goal is to leave the audience with a few key takeaways for what worked at Hootsuite to make cultural change and more importantly a bit of inspiration to lead the change in their own organizations (with a healthy does of the reality for how hard this type of change really is).
