Ways of working have evolved significantly in Sainsbury’s Tech during the last 6 years. We’ve been responding to the dual challenges presented by a rapidly changing retail industry and constantly evolving technology landscape. During that time we’ve come from traditional IT organisation structured around functional roles and projects to outward looking stable integrated teams developing business focused products. We’ve been drawing inspiration from Agile and DevOps along the way, however we’ve been following our own path. We believe all organisations need to find their own way but we’re happy to share some of things we’ve tried, things which have worked, things which haven’t and the significant lessons we’ve learnt.
