Using the Numbers behind Agile and DevOps to Measure Productivity

With the increased pressures of digitization and the speed and agility required to keep pace, many companies know that digital transformation is necessary but don’t know where to start. Agile frameworks claim productivity solutions, and DevOps practices focus on the build-and-release cycle component of the productivity puzzle, so both have gained wide enterprise adoption. But neither agile nor DevOps inherently defines engineering optimization. Join Pavel Azaletskiy as he shares what he's learned from consulting with over a hundred engineering organizations and teams. The best approach to productivity that he's seen inherits a lot from the value stream mapping of lean and focuses on flow optimization. Software is significantly different from the real world, since every flaw puts a change back to the initial position for rework. By enriching lean value stream analysis with these rework loops' characteristics, we can use real numbers to measure productivity and losses. You'll gain software delivery analysis methods to optimize engineering productivity so you can be successful on your digital transformation journey.
