“We do Agile, all of our development teams are using it”
Maybe, but maybe not. Many organizations have adopted the Agile/Scrum or Iterative development style, but in many instances, the goals an organization for making this change simply haven’t been met: time to market and ROI has not improved, product quality has not improved, there’s been no change in customer satisfaction, etc. The fact of the matter is that while many organizations have “adopted” agile, very few make the transition to actual agile transformation and are failing to reap the benefits that other organizations that plan for and see through agile transformation enjoy.
The focus of this talk will be centered around what it required to get to that transformation stage, where the near universal failures are and some of the approach options for getting there. Also, as part of this discussion, we will touch on the challenges resulting from the validation process often encountered by Healthcare IT organizations. Finally, the current hot-button subject of how DevOps (or DevSecOps) fits in will be touched upon as time allows.
