Track: High Velocity Dev Teams
Day of week:
The ideal dev team delivers a high frequency of valuable work with exceptional quality. To deliver that, there may be different challenges that you have to account for. Top ones are globally distributed teams and competing demands on your team’s work. Other ones we’ll discuss include measuring impact of your practices and features, and invisible constraints and queues.
In this track you will learn about the latest Lean, Agile and management methods and practices to help your teams dramatically improve their value delivery and quality, both in the short term, and longer term (such as technical debt improvement)
