Maximizing Productivity of Engineering Organizations

Maximizing Productivity of Engineering Organizations

About this Event

Maximizing productivity is key to any engineering organization, but it's intrinsically difficult. Every organization's situation is different and picking the right approach largely depends on one's breadth of experience.

At this event, we are honored to have Rob Mee, CEO @ Pivotal, who is arguably the best person to share insights on this topic. Rob has almost 30 years experience helping engineering organizations maximize productivity, including some of Silicon Valley’s most influential and valuable companies.

The SpeakerRob Mee is CEO of Pivotal and serves on its Board of Directors. He frequently advises the world's most admired brands, government agencies, and fast-rising startups about the value of agile software development using an open cloud platform.

A software engineer by trade, Rob started his career working at an artificial intelligence laboratory in Tokyo, writing natural language translation systems in Lisp.

In 1989, Rob founded Pivotal Labs. The company, based in San Francisco, focused on rapid, Internet- style software development known as agile programming. Over the years, Pivotal Labs has been credited for shaping the software development cultures of some of Silicon Valley’s most influential and valuable companies. In 2012, Pivotal Labs was acquired by EMC Corporation.

In 2013, Rob was part of Pivotal’s founding team, alongside Paul Maritz, Scott Yara, and Bill Cook. Pivotal merged Pivotal Labs with assets from EMC and VMware.

Rob graduated from the University of California at Berkeley.

We believe peer learning is equally important. After the talk, we will break out into small groups to further discuss this topic. This is to increase learning and develop deeper connections.

Rob will also participate the breakout session, meeting with 2 small groups of people, each for 30 minutes (7:00 PM - 7:30 PM, 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM).
