Extending Agile Beyond Software Development
Is Agile purely a software development tool? Of course not! The principles of Agile can applied just about anywhere. So why hasn't all of your IT organization adopted Agile practices?
The truth is, once your software project is done and you're on to the next one, IT Operations takes over. Systems administration, networking, desktop support, and data management must all work in concert to support your application. Are you in alignment with the entire value chain?
This talk will cover a number of management philosophies, including Agile, Lean, ITSM, and Gamification, and discuss how they can be applied outside of software development to bring greater alignment and effeciency to the enterprise IT department. We'll show you real life examples of where Agile practices have been successfully adopted outside of software development, the challenges we faced in our own transformation, and how we overcame them.

As we think about an environment 15-20 years from now, how is it different? In this interactive presentation, we will step back from our emphasis on frameworks, technologies, and process and consider what would allow us to move beyond these constraints. We will look at the reasons why we have needed guardrails to deploy software more predictably and frequently, and recognize that many of these guardrails tend to accomodate rather than eliminate disfunction. I will share a vision of what delivery could look like in the near-future to inspire us to think futher ahead as we evolve our industry.
