Adopting and maintaining an appropriate project methodology is vital for organizational success. The purpose of this article is to explore and analyze project methodologies that find common application in effective project management.
Through this webinar we'll take a deeper dive into the hard metrics (quantitative) that should be tracked at the Team, Program and Portfolio levels.
Everyone wants metrics, but which ones really matter? Which metrics can help you "actually" get better and give you visibility into the health of your teams?
Do you often find that when something fails in production, the response of a development team member is, “It works on my machine or at our end, you must be having the wrong version“? Vice Versa on the other side of the table – do you find that the operations team always feels that the developers are not sensitive to the operational requirements and constraints? If so, does that mean we are just developing software not a working system ? Are we just working in Silos ? DevOps aims at breaking the Silos and bringing in a culture of everyone “getting along”. Presenter Priya Patra disucsses how and why DevOps is the force behind the evolution where the development team and operations works together with business sponsors and quality assurance (QA) to deliver software that can be released to production at any point of time.
