Session Name: Learn to See, Measure and Automate with Value Stream Management
Value streams exist whether you are aware of them or not! Managing value streams is difficult if you can’t see them, can’t comprehend them, or aren’t aware of them. And the fact is, you can’t measure a turbulent flow in a value stream. In this talk, Lance Knight will focus on how Value Stream Optimization helps companies see, measure, and automate the flow of work in their software delivery value streams. Value stream mapping, making work visible, tool integration, workflow orchestration, enforcing governance, not to mention a value stream manager who understands value streams, thinks about them, and focuses on improvements and the future state — all to help achieve business outcomes!
