Once upon a time there was IT, and IT departments had projects. Projects were always a bad fit for software development but somehow we made them work. The damaged caused by the project model was obvious when working agile and the #NoProjects critique emerged.
Today growth businesses are digital. IT is history. Technology is the business and the business is technology. Projects end but we want our business to continue and grow. Growing a digital business means growing software technology.
The continuous digital model is a new model for managing ongoing technology work for the benefit of busineses.
In this presentation Allan Kelly will look at how #NoProjects came about, how it evolved into Continuous Digital and how technology management models are changing.

*** SESSION DESCRIPTION ***
There’s a bottleneck hiding in your Agile workplace. It is slowly, sneakily, crippling your productivity, slowing you down, causing oodles of rework, stressing everyone out, costing you money, and you can’t see it ... yet.
Clarke will show you how to find your bottleneck, tame it, manage it
It’s simpler than you think, though not always as easy as you’d hope.
