Jim Slavin will present: How to Develop Continuous Delivery Vision for an Evolving Enterprise

Continuous Delivery is shortening cycle times, lowering costs, and improving profitability in every industry.

But many different systems need to be evolved in order for it to become possible to implement Continuous Delivery in an organization. Therefore, implementation of Continuous Delivery requires participation from people in many parts of an organization.

All of these stakeholders need to understand the building blocks of Continuous Delivery, so that they can understand how their own groups would need to evolve in order to integrate into a Continuous Delivery system.

In this presentation, we will describe:

* What Continuous Delivery is
* What the 6 Building Blocks of Continuous Delivery are
* How Continuous Delivery is really a new approach to IT Project Management in an evolving organization
* How to integrate each of the 6 Building Blocks into a process for creating each new IT project
* A global view of Continuous Delivery, starting with requirements gathering, and continuing all the way through to delivery of new working functionality in production
* An approach to starting a Continuous Delivery program in your organization

Attendees will leave with a better understanding of Continuous Delivery, and with an improved ability to promote implementation of Continuous Delivery in their own workplace.
