How to enable platform engineering

Unlock the potential of your platform teams by combining them with engineering enablement and Dojo practices. This combination empowers engineers to do their best work, by leveraging paved road solutions with guides, all while removing the day-to-day friction of working on complex systems.

Grainger has been on a multi-year journey to build platforms that empower our engineers to focus on delivering innovative solutions for our internal and external customers. As part of that journey, we have built a combined Enablement and Platform Engineering org. This org focuses on building product-driven platform offerings, combined with Dojo and immersive learning opportunities.

The audience will learn how we:

  • Created a product-centric view of the platform
  • Combined Dojos with Platform to accelerate change
  • Improved the engineers' day-to-day work environment
