  3. 3. People and careers-paths – Software teams • People are by their very nature, change resistant • The right culture can be fun and market competitive • The new norm…is constant change… • Be ready to learn, adapt and adjust Agile Not every organization can or should adopt agile. But agile, in what ever form that is appropriate for a business, organizational structure or team, is now the new development standard. @PaulPeissner
  4. 4. People and careers-paths – Business teams • Blend cross-discipline teams and integrate silo functions • Invest in careers: education, training and mentoring • Reconsider incentives that better align teams • Culture can be a strategic advantage! Continuous Integration The collapse of the Dev/QA silos and segmented Dev technologies, makes more sense to integrate, automate and collaborate as project scopes get smaller and project cycles get shorter. @PaulPeissner
  5. 5. Technologies and change tolerance – Software teams Continuous Delivery As the project cadences speed-up, the Operations and production teams need to adjust established change patterns and expectations; and explore the benefits of innovative new technology. • Explore simplification and the modern innovative tools • Create a culture that explores and experiments • Get out of the legacy box and manual routines • Collaborate to challenge the status quo @PaulPeissner
  6. 6. Technologies and change tolerance – Business teams • Cost of Change (it’s painful to disrupt organizational patterns) • Cost of Not Changing (the fastest way to obsolescence) • Invest in people and the changes they recommend • Reward the right kind of team behaviors DevOps As agile, automation, Cloud, mobile and new technologies bypass complex systems, org. bureaucracy and legacy tools, it becomes critical for DevOps and cross-discipline collaboration. @PaulPeissner
  7. 7. Processes and corporate predictability – Software teams • More visibility, access and automation for daily contributors • Full-service development, Self-service tools & Feedback loops • Embrace the powerful “flat or lean” models Continuous Improvement The new collaborative technology culture, will quickly find innovative ways to improve practices, decision- making and adopt new technologies that increase efficiencies and reliability. @PaulPeissner
  8. 8. Business Agility The efficiencies of the software practices will require more feedback loops to effectively measure and quickly improve development efforts, product quality and market relevance. @PaulPeissner Processes and business predictability – Business teams • Continuous leaning (internal & external) and adapt quickly • Your Team/Processes are your competitive-edge and a source of innovative differentiation
