Dominica DeGrandis is in town Sept 25-26 teaching a Kanban workshop at the Silicon Valley Innovation Center and she will be sticking around afterwards to speak with us for our September SVDevOps meetup at the same location.
Dominica, has taught the use and implementation of the Kanban method to teams and organisations all over the world. Her work focuses on methods for managing and improving workflow and communication between and within teams and departments, especially the workflow through IT. She is a proponent of the DevOps movement and works to bridge the gap between Development and Operations teams.
For our meetup Dominica will present options for handling situations where teams are unaware of mutually critical information. She'll show examples of metrics that can be used to start conversations to get people’s buy in and determine next steps.
Bring your questions - plenty of time for Q & A.
Note: if you are interested to learn more about Kanban for DevOps be sure to check out the workshop that Dominica is running before our meetup: http://ddegrandis.eventbrite.com/ I would definitely not want to miss that one. Be sure to signup soon as this will soon sell out ;). I sure hope to see many of you.
