Speaker Spotlight: Dominica DeGrandis

By IT Revolution

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be highlighting a few keynote speakers who have contributed tremendously to the DevOps Enterprise Summit over the last four years.

We’ve been honored to learn and grow with each of these individuals through their transformation journeys, and we’re excited to be welcoming them all back to DOES18 in London.


Taking her background as a build engineer, Dominica DeGrandis, Director of Digital Transformation at Tasktop, teaches teams how to see and measure the problems that prevent them from getting work delivered.

And since 2014 — she’s been teaching us how to make our own work more visible in each of her five presentations at the DevOps Enterprise Summit in both San Francisco and London.

Dominica kicked off the very first DOES in 2014 with her presentation “How we use Kanban in Operations to get things done.”

In 2015, Dominica focused on how to use a Kanban flow approach to measure the probability of delivering work on time.

Back at it again in 2016, Dominica spoke about this intricacies of invisible work. She detailed how it competes with known work, how it blindsides people, and leaves teams unaware of mutually critical information until it’s too late.

Finally, in 2017, Dominica shared two different presentations.

In London, she showed us how to unmask the things that are killing your team’s capacity and their ability to optimize workflow.

And again a few months later in San Francisco, she shared with us how looking at three key metrics can help you from stop losing precious time trapped in meeting misery.

Thankfully, Dominica will be joining us again in London for DOES18, sharing with us her presentation, “Conflicting Priorities: How to Visualize Impacts to Your Workflow & Metrics.”

Check out the agenda for details.
