Making Agile ALM Work in Regulated Industries

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Agile practices may seem at odds with GRC (governance, risk and compliance). Skeptics understandably are worried about the prospect of multiple small teams working autonomously, and a resulting lack of accountability and control.
By following the right concepts, you can make Agile work effectively also in highly regulated industries such as Finance, Telecommunications, Pharmaceuticals and Government.

It's all about feedback - code review as a great tool in the agile toolbox

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Agile software engineering practices like Pair Programming, Test Driven Development and Continuous Integration have one thing in common: They help the team to get feedback as fast as possible. In this talk we will show how we learned - from contributing to open source projects like EGit, JGit and Gerrit - to use Code Review as another, very effective feedback cycle in our in-house scrum projects. Furthermore we talk about how open-source-like processes including Code Review can help in large projects with many scrum teams.

Requirements On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Agile puts enormous strains on the people responsible for software requirements:

  • How do they get just enough requirements in time for the next sprint?
  • How do you pack enough information into the requirements to provide meaningful guidance?
  • Will you ever provide meaningful guidance for outsourcing partners?
  • How do you spin off additional artifacts for governance and compliance?
  • How do you re-purpose the information in the requirements for other audiences?
  • Do you ever get a chance to do retrospectives on requirements?
