Rebooting ALM

A session at Lean Agile Scotland 2015

Friday 9th October, 2015

1:40pm to 2:10pm (GMT)

Once the conference is over, you’ll be able to go back to the office and start making changes based on everything you’ve learned here.

Not really.

Development processes are changing in front of our eyes, but apart from providing “templates” and “best practices”, ALM (Application lifecycle management) tool vendors are the true kings of methodology. They put the constraints on changes, and indeed on thinking of what is possible, and what “probably works in other companies”.

ALM requires a reboot.

In this session, we’re going to discuss how the product life cycle in the agile world, requires us to think differently on what the “management” part of ALM really is about. What we need to track and measure, and at what level. What kind of metrics we should put on experimentation and learning, feedback cycles and delays in the development system.

And how future processes and tools can actually support individuals and interactions.
