    The key objectives of Organizations is to provide / derive value from the products / services they offer. To achieve this, they need to be able to deliver their offerings in the quickest time possible, and of good quality!
    In such a fast moving environment, CI (Continuous Integration) and CD (Continuous Delivery) are now a necessity and not a luxury!

    There are various practices that Organizations and Enterprises need to implement to enable CD. Testing (automation) is one of the important practices that needs to be setup correctly for CD to be successful.

    Testing in Organizations on the CD journey is tricky and requires a lot of discipline, rigor and hard work. In Enterprises, the Testing complexity and challenges increase exponentially.

    In this session, I am sharing my vision of the Test Strategy required to make successful the journey of an Enterprise on the path of implementing CD.

    What is coaching?

    “It is helping to identify the skills and capabilities that are within the person, and enabling them to use them to the best of their ability” — wikipedia

    "Individuals and Interactions over Process and Tools"

    The above is first of the 4 values espoused in the manifesto but yet it is common to see many agile coaches engage with teams and organisations advocating more and more processes. This is a common sight with new teams and also with teams on the path of agile transition from few months to few years irrespective of the competency, skills and maturity of the teams. Agile Fluency model created by Diana Larse and James Shore highlights the focus on value over compliance and practices at any given level

    “ Team fluency depends on more than just the capability of the individuals on the team. It also depends on management structures, relationships, organizational culture, and more. Don’t make the mistake of blaming individuals for low team fluency, or assuming that one highly-skilled individual will guarantee high team fluency ”

    An agile coach responsible for building high performing teams will need right set of powerful tools and techniques to leverage while working with teams and also to set the right expectations to both management and teams. This talk will draw from experience using few such powerful tools mentioned below while coaching teams attain fluency.

    1. Deliberate Practice
    2. Driving Empowerment & Self Organisation: Working Agreements
    3. Scaling Agile Transformation: Creating a Learning Org 
    4. Driving Commitment: Key Measures Highlighting Self Organisation

    This is not a beginner level talk and assumes participants having experience in leading agile teams and transformation initiatives in your respective organisations.

    Considering today’s dynamic business environment, where solutions are expected as quickly as possible, adopting only few Agile practices may not help the business in a significant way. This situation becomes further complicated where user experience matters most. From software service Organization perspective, it is further complicated where one has to consider few more parameters like Customer Collaboration (& time), Contracting approach, Domain level standards, Development maturity Standards, etc. Also as usual, productivity loss in transitioning work product from one resource to another. 

    A small step in resolving these pain areas and strike a balance between various needs & constraints, at Altimetrik, we have devised a SDLC framework – based on the concept Unified Resource and various best practices from Agile, Waterfall, Prototype driven development, Assembly approach etc.

    We have been using this approach for our various customer projects and have seen significant benefits.

    In this experience report, we will discuss about the various pain areas of existing development models and how they are overcomed through this customised SDLC framework for some of our clients.
