Project To Product: How we transitioned to product-aligned value streams

During this webinar, Tasktop VP of Product Development, Nicole Bryan, combines our own journey with the experience of working with our enterprise customers, to paint a clear picture of the cross-organizational challenges in store - and how you can address them by:

  • Adopting a “customer-first” mindset
  • Appointing a Product Value Stream Lead and a Product Manager
  • Implementing the Flow Framework™ to align the language of IT with the language of the business

Value Stream Architecture: What is it and how can it help

Methodologies such as Agile and DevOps have been adopted to accelerate the time between build to deploy, yet the benefits are often only felt at a localized level (more sprints completed, higher number of deployments etc.) without a tangible link to business outcomes. Enter Value Stream Architecture. Watch our on-demand webinar to learn:

  • The business case for Value Stream Architecture
  • Why your organization needs it in order to scale Agile and DevOps
  • How to architect for end-to-end flow of business value from customer request to delivery and back through the customer feedback loop

Roadmap to M&A Success: How Model-Based Integration Minimizes Disruption and Improves Collaboration Across your Software Teams

With more than two-thirds of M&A transactions failing, there's continuous pressure on IT leaders to pave the way for smooth transitions. When combined, the software delivery teams of both companies can leverage economies of scale and propel enterprise innovation that was previously unattainable. But first, you need to get everyone rowing in the same direction. Learn how Tasktop’s model-based integration provides the flexibility to accommodate organizational changes with minimal disruption to teams.

 

Why Model-Based Integration is Key for Value Stream Management

Learn why model-based integration is the only way to efficiently synchronize large volumes of sophisticated data across teams and tools, while maintaining integrity and supporting cross-tool reporting.

 

Why Digitial Transformations are Failing at Scale - Avoid it by Shifting from Project to Product

During this webinar guest speaker, Forrester VP, Principal Analyst, Diego Lo Giudice, and Tasktop CEO, Dr. Mik Kersten, presented their research on why transformations are failing at scale and how a product value stream approach enables organizations to survive and thrive in the age of digital disruption.

 

How to Integrate Multiple Jira Instances to Improve Collaboration, Visibility, and Reporting

There's no denying that Jira has taken over the developer space and many organizations are taking advantage of the flexibility of Jira by making it their single source of truth for all software delivery teams. If Jira is your single source of truth, it’s easy to believe you don’t need to connect to the rest of your value stream. The truth is, in order to ensure cross-team visibility, traceability and overarching reporting, you don’t need to look past Jira for the need to integrate. Join Senior Value Stream Architect, Mara Puisite to learn why you need to integrate your Jira instances to:

  • Increase collaboration and reduce informal handovers
  • Automate information flow to enable traceability across multiple Jira system
  • Seamlessly accommodate organization change (mergers, acquisitions, reorgs), minimizing team disruptions
  • Centralize fragmented data in a reporting database to identify bottlenecks

Value Stream Management vs Value Stream Mapping: What You Need To Know

The emergence of Value Stream Management (VSM) as a concept applicable to IT signals a change for traditional enterprises in a tech-driven world. Finally, organizations have a digital practice available that is focused on the optimization of business value. By combining the people, processes, and technologies that map, optimize, visualize and control how value flows across software delivery pipeline, these organizations now have an opportunity to level the digital playing field. At the same time, all this talk of value streams and Value Stream Mapping - also acronymized as VSM - is causing some confusion. While the two “VSMs” are different concepts, they are not mutually exclusive. In this webinar, Dominica DeGrandis and Carmen DeArdo will answer questions on how they complement one another, what they are and what they can do.

 

Future proof your Jira integrations and avoid API change panic

Does the Jira API change leave you vulnerable to disruption? If you’re connecting Jira to the rest of your software delivery toolchain, Atlassian’s new approach to user identification could mean a major headache. What happens to all of the integrations you’ve set up when the API change goes into effect? Join Tasktop to learn more about what’s changing and see how you can keep product-critical data flowing between teams with Value Stream Integration.

 

Creating Role Model Ladders: An International Women's Day Panel

Gender equality is an essential part of what makes businesses thrive. In STEM industries specifically, women are often underrepresented. The void of female role models is like missing rungs on a ladder - only the very brave will dare climb higher with no support. Watch this on-demand International Women’s Day panel discussion to hear how we can create a more gender-balanced world and the concrete steps organizations can make to take action.

 

How Measuring Defect Detection Percentage (DDP) Improves Regression Test Coverage

In this webinar hosted by Software Test Professionals, Tasktop Sr. Solutions Architect, Matt Angerer, will discuss the fundamentals to calculating how effective your team is at finding bugs in your software. Using ServiceNow and Micro Focus ALM to demonstrate, he’ll show you how to automate the flow of information between your ALM and ITSM tools to monitor DDP in real time.

Project To Product: Connecting IT to the Business with the Flow FrameworkTM

Mastering large-scale software delivery will define the economic landscape of the 21st century, just as the mastery of mass production defined the landscape in the 20th. Unfortunately, business and technology leaders are woefully ill-equipped for the Age of Software because they are using management paradigms from past technological revolutions. While technologists adopting DevOps and Agile have already made the transition, the gap between modern technical practices and the business has only widened in the process. A new approach is needed.

During this webinar hosted by SD Times, Dr. Mik Kersten will present the Flow FrameworkTM – a new approach to software delivery spanning the language of the business with the language of technology and enables the transition from project to product.

Flow Metrics: What They Are & Why You Need Them

To visualize and optimize the business value of your software delivery, you need to find a way to measure business outcomes. To do that, we need flow metrics. During this webinar, Dominica DeGrandis presents five key flow metrics that reveal trends on desirable business outcomes – such as faster time-to-market, responsiveness to customers, and predictable release timeframes – and explains how to implement them to measure and improve the impact and value of software products on your business.

 

What is Value Stream Management and why do you need it?

Agile has provided a framework for shortening iterations and adapting to ever changing requirements.  DevOps established practices for automating the software delivery pipeline. While these methods are becoming standard practices in building software, scaling these concepts is problematic.  That’s where Value Stream Management (VSM) comes in.

Watch this on-demand webinar with Tasktop Senior VSM Strategist, Carmen DeArdo, to learn:

  • What is Value Stream Management and why you need it
  • How to architect your delivery pipeline for end-to-end flow and delivery speed
  • Why moving from a project to product approach is critical to survive in the age of digital disruption
