Using an agile approach for adopting ALM best practices.


For the past sixteen years, Mr. Persoon has held different executive roles in professional services firms, including Big 4, in Europe, USA and Canada allowing him to build strong expertise in Performance Management and Business Process Optimization. This includes the latest position as a President of Shiftinc - a Microsoft Certified Partner specialized in performance management - that helped many organisations to leverage their investments by applying the best business practices to their operations.


Development teams are usually aware of opportunities for improvement but struggle with prioritization, practice details and how to get started. This session will present how Scrum can be used for managing practice improvement projects. I will also introduce InCycle BluePrint, a free turnkey TFS template that includes the work items, reports and templates and a series of ready-to-use initiatives to accelerate time to improvement. We will review how to organize an agile improvement project, how to create and manage the improvement backlog, how to run an improvement iteration and how to track progress with the dashboards.
