Continuous Delivery Changes Everything (For The Better!)

Zach Beer, Polaris Solutions

About the Topic

Are you sick of hearing how great "agile" is without seeing it? Are you tired of releasing things that your customers don't care about? Do your teammates only care about "their job" and little else? Do you have giant releases that always seem to go wrong? Does improvement seem impossible? If you feel this way, know that you're not alone. Zach has seen the best and worst of how organizations deliver value, and he's ready to help your team think differently. By focusing on goals rather than projects and continuous delivery rather than scheduled releases, he'll illustrate how the most “agile” organizations succeed. He'll dispel myths around reduced quality and increased risk. He'll even show that you can implement many of these changes right away.

Key Learning Objectives
  • How the most "agile" organizations are structured and why they're successful
  • How these changes in thinking make for a better overall work experience
  • How any employee can have a positive influence on organizational direction
