For the second year in a row I was invited to present at IBM Innovate, which is a conference hosted by IBM and focused on concepts such as Continuous Engineering, DevOps and Agile.
My topic was titled “SDLC Transformation: How Paychex Began Adopting Rational CLM (+Agile) and Adapted Along the Way”. In this session, we focused on a few key topics:
- Going “behind the scenes” to see what an SDLC Transformation really looks like
- Condensing 3 years of success/failure into 60 minutes
- From waterfall to agile
- From miscellaneous tools to the Rational suite (RTC,RRC,RQM)
- Hear 5 important lessons that we learned as an organization
Below are the slides. We had a great crowd and some fantastic questions/discussions about agile transformations at organizations and how to manage some of the challenges.
