Imagine if you could add more time to your delivery schedule, where would you spend it? Although we can’t add more hours to our day, we can find time by discovering inefficiencies in our current SDLC management approach. Many of us feel like there is never enough time to complete everything we wanted in a given sprint or cycle. We plan for the best-case scenario, but undoubtedly, something happens that cause us to feel like we “could have done more.” In this session, Melissa will talk through five areas that may be causing inefficiencies in your overall approach. While Melissa shares her five, she will also discuss how to practically implement them and discuss metrics to consider for continuous improvement.
- We will discuss the five areas that cause inefficiencies in the SDLC.
- Show how to address and/or replace them with a more modern approach.
- Walk through the playbook on each and deep dive in to the implementation of each.
