    What do these items have in common? Most speak of cross-functional collaboration, and a few outright refer to XP as the best set of current working technical practices. This talk assumes you've got the XP/Scrum iterative development engine running, maybe even with DevOps and continuous development going.

    What’s next? Wouldn’t it be worthwhile to talk to people that will use the solution? Even on some internal thing like a Salesforce integration? What outcomes really matter to your users? Given that unused features (which there seems to be lots of) provide no value, what’s the least amount that can be done to assure what gets released, gets used?

    The Scrum/XP development engine is the delivery track. How you’re learning to quickly deliver the right outcomes, the fuel for that engine, is the discovery track. Coined by some as Dual-Track Scrum, these tracks are meant to run in parallel for each and every Scrum team, all the time.

    Why would you want to do that? As one CTO in the health care industry put it to me, he had a few people on a product innovation council, and has a few hundred in product development. Building more, at a faster rate, with Scrum to him seemed a waste of time if nobody used it. Ideas were also stalling in the council’s New Product Introduction process. He saw dual-track as a better way to serve the customers and their needs.

    Continuous delivery is not just a technical tool. Regardless of whether we want it or not, it creates a fundamental change to the world around software teams, including marketing and customer interaction. Ignoring those changes is dangerous, because it can lead to conflicts with the rest of the company. Embracing those changes and exploiting them opens up new business opportunities. By recognising and taking charge in this transformation, software teams can become much more valuable to the companies around them. This talk will focus on how to unlock all that potential, and turn the fact that your teams can deliver frequently into an engine that will help you outrun your competition. This is a talk for tech and business people.
