Does your software development feel chaotic?
If you have ever been dissatisfied with your software development flow - if you would like to figure out how to avoid chaos - this is a presentation for you!
Ron Lichty has found himself repeatedly called in as the cavalry to help development groups stuck in confusion. A recognized engineering leader, Ron says, “I've found that I excel at coming in cold, identifying the causes of chaos, untangling organizational knots, creating roadmaps everyone can follow, building communications with other parts of the organization, and getting teams productive and focused on delivery, quality and customers.” He adds, “With a few pointers, any team member can more deeply diagnose their team.”
Ron is author of Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams, which has been compared by reviewers to Fred Brooks’ The Mythical Man Month. After managing software and product organizations for 25 years, Ron has catered his leadership roles to the needs of his clients, including interim VP Engineering and acting CTO roles.
Six years ago, Ron began training teams in agile and a year ago training managers in the nuances of managing software people and teams, whether in waterfall environments, or iterative or agile ones.
If you would like to become an effective agile team member then you'll want to attend this presentation. We’ll look at agile trends, software team pain points, product team solutions, and how every team member contributes to making teams excel.
Drawing from his experience with dozens of product development organizations, Ron will walk through the steps needed to assess your organization’s workings and pull together the elements that will bring order and increased productivity for your business.
