As a result bugs were discovered and fixed, plus downtimes were reduced by 54%.
- I coordinated and drove the Lean Coffee format sessions including all engineering teams to discuss and improve our existing processes. Main impact was related to the release process, as we decreased the number of bugs released by 70%, the number of engineers involved was reduced to 4, and release started to happen within a day.
