Level: Introductory to Intermediate
Many "scaling agile" efforts have failed for lack of focus on delivering working software on a regular basis. They have instead just been a refactoring of processes to gather requirements. It is easy to ignore tooling, development, and down–to–the metal DevOps practices when talking about scaling agile. However, these can be a boon or a bane to achieve working software – meaning tested software – and as with any process implementation, agile at scale is no different.
You will learn:
- How most agile scaling efforts focus just on restructuring backlogs and leave developers behind
- Learn how to identify DevOps and tooling bottlenecks, and align the implementation of agile at scale with the Agile Manifesto – working software over comprehensive documentation
- Rules of thumb derived from real world experience on doing DevOps when scaling agile
