As all companies are rapidly becoming software-centric companies and compete through software-based products and services, the ability to measure and accelerate time to value through their software delivery pipeline becomes increasingly essential. However, most companies and enterprise IT that support these companies don't have this ability.

Optimizing Value Streams

In this ELF, we will explore Value Stream Management: a lean management concept that enables companies to build and master the ability to measure, track and accelerate the delivery of value of their software products delivery pipelines.

Topics covered are:

⚡️ Building a shared language between business and technology about the items that constitute value in software products.

⚡️ Holistically measuring the flow of business value by measuring key processes that deliver the items that constitute business value. 

⚡️ Finally, we will discuss the leadership and cultural changes required to measure and accelerate the delivery of value.
