It’s an accepted truth in software development; when deadlines loom the team will be pressured to GO FASTER. Unable to convince management of the risks, developers resign to cutting a few corners and working longer hours. Unfortunately the net result is just as predictable, a short term spike in velocity and months of hidden costs and delays to come.

This talk will cover how to reverse the velocity death spiral by building collaborative and high trust relationships with management. We'll cover the root causes of our collective distrust like estimation, accountability, communication, and abuse of power. Further we’ll explore how to have healthy, data supported discussions to enable developers and managers to resist short sighted solutions that will plague the team for years to come.
