Session Description:
The evening before the space shuttle Challenger explosion, scientists at NASA caught what they thought was a potentially catastrophic risk with the o-rings considering the unusually cold temperature expected for the morning’s launch. They brought the issue to management’s attention but failed to influence the final decision enough to stop the launch. Failure to influence may not cost lives, but it could be “catastrophic” for business.

This talk presents a “top 10 tips” for using data to influence others toward better decisions. Attendees will learn: The do's and don'ts of visualization, how others lie with data, what makes an effective dashboard, how to communicate uncertainty and more.

Dedicating team members to a single team can double productivity. Teams that most aggressively control their simultaneous work in process (WiP) have as much as a 75% reduction in released defects. The impact of holding regular retrospectives on performance can be been significant.

This session provides helpful facts and actionable information. Attendees will learn how the elusive Lean/Agile impact is finally quantified, through data derived from tens of thousands of teams across a wide variety of industries and contexts. Note: This topic was previously presented at Agile 2013, where it was voted the best presentation of the conference. This session builds on that and includes the latest findings.

When: Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Share & Follow: @tasktop, @DavidJWest

Session Description:
Tasktop CPO presents lessons learned while doing DevOps deployments in large organizations, including banks, retailers, and car manufacturers. Each of these transformations was challenged with integrating rapid iterations and continuous delivery with existing systems and stakeholders. This led to the creation of tool-agnostic DevOps Integration Patterns including Defect Unification, Agile Orchestration, and Supply Chain Integration. For each pattern, Dave West will present a case study and show how the implementation lead to success.
