Many organizations have been on the road to AD&D transformation, making significant investments in CI/CD and release automation, yet they still have nagging issues such as siloed teams and lack of actionable data--and the new reality of working from home has made gaining the insights needed to master software at scale even more difficult. Value Stream Management (VSM) is helping enterprises to align and make better decisions, but there is still work to be done.

In this webinar, guest speaker Forrester Principal Analyst, Chris Condo and Tasktop CEO, Dr. Mik Kersten will deliver an overview of Value Stream Management—a technology and methodology for gaining insight into software delivery processes that enables dev leaders to capture data that represents the actual state of processes—and discuss how Flow Metrics provide the analytics to help organizations better balance workloads, visualize bottlenecks and provide leaders with the data they need to make continuous improvements. Chris will present data, findings and case studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of VSM and Mik will cover the flow diagnostics and lessons learned from customers using Flow Metrics to drive business results.
