Jez Humble (Author of Continuous Delivery) will talk about adapting the Lean Startup Model to the Enterprise.
Large organizations are notoriously bad at disruptive innovation involving software. This is due both to organizational barriers and a lack of good engineering practices. In this presentation Jez will take a scientific approach to innovation in software development, using examples from organizations such as Amazon and HP.
Jez will begin by discussing the fundamentals of innovation, using the lean startup methodology. He will then tackle organizational barriers to innovation: traditional project management practices, silos between departments, and reporting structures. Good engineering practices are crucial to rapid delivery of high quality software, and so Jez will discuss the importance of continuous delivery to teams working on strategic software projects. Finally he will discuss how compliance and governance can be managed effectively while still delivering valuable software.
