Up: Jelena Laketic, Head of Asset Management SWAT (Software Asset Team), UBS (@thebabymonster)

  • @thebabymonster: “150 years old; pretty old; but not as old some some who presented here (haha); largest bank in Switzerland; 61K employees; 34% in Americas; 34% in Switzerland; 18% in EMEA”
  • @thebabymonster: “Asset management: managing money that people already have; Investment banking: raising money that people want to have” (hahaha!)
  • @DanielBreston: --- @thebabymonster at #DOES18: Asset Management side - static but still loads of change based on technology software therefore the Software Action Team concept
  • @DOES_EUR: --- Asset management historically was built from very small organizations - lots of silos and working towards common goal was almost impossible @thebabymonster @UBS #devops #DOES18 https://t.co/BsGIee9THO
  • @thebabymonster: “I didn’t want to create an external arrogant group of experts; I wanted to empower ‘regular IT’ — because for years, I was ‘regular IT’. I wanted to enable bottom-up innovation”
  • @DOES_EUR: --- Working together with #IT was important to @thebabymonster. She wanted to create a team that would complement IT @UBS #DOES18 https://t.co/gtfSufjr3O
  • @thebabymonster: “My goal: inject greatness into team. I like the word ‘inject.’ When you inject the patient, you don’t want to kill the patient, or hurt the patient.” (Hahaha)
  • @thebabymonster pointing out a fascinating pattern: creating Innovation teams often creates entitled groups totally disconnected from the rest of the organization, actually quite limited in their ability to create organizational value
  • @DanielBreston: @thebabymonster at #DOES18: active involvement in innovation. Inject fun! Advisor role. Now that is a SWAT team!
  • @DOES_EUR: --- @thebabymonster wanted to help the @UBS global innovation board to keep projects within the organization #DOES18 #devops https://t.co/x2OpQHOW6s

  • @thebabymonster: “during subprime mortgage crisis, we had ambulances at the office almost every day” (wow)

  • @thebabymonster: “during this period, many banks had over 10K layoffs; government bailouts caused tremendous resentment among citizens”

  • @DOES_EUR: --- The 2008 banking crisis was horrifying, but gave @thebabymonster the opportunity to innovate new systems @UBS #DOES18 #devops https://t.co/8NaCm5j5ZC

  • @thebabymonster: RT @margocronin: Excellent presentation at #DOES18 from @thebabymonster on her #DevOps story @DOES_EUR https://t.co/xDJI45DKZZ
