Navigating Forks in the Road: The ‘Ways of Working’ Journey at Cox Automotive (Las Vegas 2020)

Cox Automotive is among the largest automotive services providers in the world and includes some of the most recognized brands in the industry, including Autotrader, Kelley Blue Book, and Manheim Auctions. So, when we fully integrated our enterprise in 2015, we were united with a collective sense of urgency to transform and align our ways of working in the face of a competitive landscape and a rapidly-evolving industry. We invite you to join us on the journey as we share our transformation approach and key learnings to-date. Some of the forks in the road that we have encountered over the past five years: Adopt a consistent delivery system structure across the enterprise, or adapt the approach for context? For internal platforms and IT operations, stay the course with projects or pivot into products? When there is a need for speed and innovation at enterprise scale, charge ahead or focus on the foundation? The forks and winding roads in our talk will also deep-dive the five components of our Enterprise Technology transformation: -Implement Strategy as a Hypothesis -Focus on Outcomes over Outputs -Amplify the Voice of the Organization -Inspire Engineering Excellence -Empower our Ways of Working #AtScale We will use the learnings from our transformation to offer practical takeaways and advice for the audience to consider for their organization’s journey.
