Sure, we have all thought that continuous delivery is important in software delivery... now we have data to back it up. Dr. Nicole Forsgren will present new research that shows the central role that CD plays in Agile and DevOps, the key processes that contribute to it, and how it can not only impact your IT teams and company success, but how it can also make your work feel better. This extends her prior research showing why investments in IT are now impacting teams and organizations, how we got here, and what’s next. The presentation includes the data to help you prove your case (to management or even yourself) about why CD and DevOps are essential to winning, as well as great stories and examples to really bring these concepts to life. Nicole invites all DevOps practitioners to build their teams up so they can lead high performing organizations, and think about what they can do to affect change beyond their teams and their organizations.


Outline/Structure of the Keynote

This can be given as a talk or a keynote. The CD sections are based on brand new findings. The talk is presentation format, with time for Q&A at the end if desired. I have given talks to small audiences with a high interaction style (I was a university professor for five years and excel at managing and facilitating discussions around the talk material). I have also given keynotes to audiences of 1000-1500. I can tailor the delivery of the talk material accordingly. 

Learning Outcome

Great data-based evidence that CD and DevOps have impacts on software delivery, organizational performance and reduce deployment pain and burnout. This talk is also full of fun stories to back up the data... but the data is GOLD for when you have to help convince someone (maybe yourself!) that CD and DevOps is worth the time and cost investment. 

Target Audience

Managers, business leaders, technical leaders, those who need to convince someone that CD/DevOps is a good idea

    Nope, this session has nothing to do with user-stories. Rather, it's about everyday, "did I tell you about ...", stories - the kind you find in jokes, cartoons, novels and conversation - and how to use them to implement Agile in a non-threatening, yet surprisingly sticky way. You'll learn a little theory, you'll have a laugh, and you'll learn (at least) one story which will, one day, save your butt.
