12289: Release Management: It's Not a Release Train - It's a Release Plane!

Friday, February 8, 2013: 8:00 AM-9:00 AM
Plaza B, Lobby Level (San Francisco Hilton)
Speaker: Kevin Parker(Serena International)

It's time to start calling it "The Release Plane". What if TSA ran QA? What if Air Traffic Control ran release planning and what if a United gate agent was in charge of release control. Would your release be ready to leave on time? Would it pass testing? Would it be complete. And would it be sure where it was going and why?

Now is the time we have to get tough on release management and start acting as though we are serious.

We can't have one train a week that takes 4 days to get there. We need 4 flights a day that take 90 minutes. We can't have a million tons of cargo that sits on a dock for weeks and then takes another week to load and yet another week to unload. We need our stuff when we want it.

This session is about a radical rethink of release management. It is provocative, informative and entertaining. But it has a serious message - come fly the friendly skies.
