Abstract:
In an agile environment of quick project starts and even quicker deadlines, teams are being asked to deliver value to customers faster. Our team succeeded in delivering all the requested business value in time, but still had a huge hurdle to jump at the end - actually releasing the product to our customers!
Businesses think that they do not need to know (or care) about the “technical” decisions of their teams, such as how a product will actually be released, or how the release procedure itself will be tested. This is not only wrong; it is dangerous for the company's bottom line. When technical release decisions are contained in a technical team silo, we are only using half our teams’ skills and risking delivery to our end users.
We all know managers do not just want problems raised; they want solutions proposed. Learn to clearly articulate delivery risks to the business and also mitigate the risks through proven practices applied in new ways.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Clearly articulate delivery risks to businesses when technical decisions are in a separate silo from business decisions
  • Leave with concrete ways to mitigate risks through proven practices applied in new ways
