Lessons From a Pandemic CPO
Randeep joined the UK government in July 2020 at short notice to build the NHS Covid 19 app in just 6 weeks after the first iteration was stopped. This was an unusually stressful time. The project was high extremely high-profile, urgent, and needed to play a part in potentially saving 1,000s of lives across the UK. No pressure.
Randeep will share the story of building the app along with some of the tools, techniques and processes that he employed to make this app succeed in some of the highest pressure circumstances he’s ever worked in. He’ll share his experiences across private and public healthcare and the lessons he learned in managing such a high profile project to offer some practical insights and about how humans work together, or don’t, to build products with real impact.
Covering everything from behavioural psychology to Marvel superheroes, you’ll leave with ideas about how you can have impact, and fun, in the face of chaos.
