    - How they help management get back to managing the exceptions with capabilities that capture data. From planning to production, enabling managers to "see" the exceptions amongst all the effort.
  • How to Measure Velocity Across Tools and reduce WIP by increasing Throughput Recorded: Sep 18 2020 23 mins
    CJ Henry
    Every Scrum practitioner monitors the velocity of their team. By measuring the average work completed by a team in a given sprint, a historical record is created, which can then be used for future sprint planning. At ConnectALL, we can help teams measure velocity across a variety of tools. We can help a team measure velocity by either story points or hours worked. Either way, a Scrum Master can build a historical record of sprints to better predict the actual capacity of their team in the future. Inevitably, every Scrum Master is faced with the question of: "Can your team deliver this feature in 2 weeks?" With accurate velocity charts, spanning the breadth of tools in use across an organization, that question can be answered with more confidence. Little's Law demonstrated that increased Work In Process (WIP) results in higher cycle times.
  • How ConnectALL Calculates Lead Time and why measuring Cycle Time is important Recorded: Sep 11 2020 24 mins
    CJ Henry
    Lead Time was borrowed from Lean Manufacturing principles. In software development, Lead Time is the time elapsed between the identification of a software requirement and delivery to the customer. When calculating lead time for work items, such as user stories, flowing between multiple Agile Planning tools - it is important to focus on the overall time elapsed between the status changes of the focus requirement. In this short discussion and demo, we will focus our attention on how lead time was calculated for a particular change requested from our Product Owner to an existing application. I will show you the progression of that User Story through multiple tools and how ConnectALL recognizes the time elapsed from initiation to fulfillment. Many practitioners make a clear distinction between Lead Time vs. Cycle Time as it relates to Software Development. Lead Time is often defined & measured from a "user's point of view" whereas the latter is often defined from a "developer's point of view". ConnectALL calculates lead time from the moment a request is submitted (from the customer) to when it is fulfilled. Our indicator to track the elapsed time is the status and timestamps of the work items flowing through an organization's value stream. On the other hand, cycle time is measured from the moment a work item (e.g., a user story) is started (e.g., in progress). In this discussion and demonstration, we will show you how ConnectALL detects and measures both metrics across multiple Agile Planning tools.
  • Gaining Higher Visibility into Code Scans in SonarQube from Azure DevOps Recorded: Sep 4 2020 15 mins
    Johnathan McGowan
    Application security is on everyone's minds, but how do you ensure that line of sight visibility is provided from your application and vulnerability tool to your Development and Testing tools? In this demo, we'll demonstrate how our patent-pending Universal Adapter consumes "smells" in real-time from a tool like SonarQube and feeds them directly into Azure DevOps. You will learn how to bring code smells into your backlog and how using ConnectALL you can close the feedback loops as you incorporate DevOps tools and get feedback into your Dev and Testing systems. Using ConnectALL you can integrate automatic code scanning tools like SonarQube and bring the results of these scans back into your backlog without manual work — automatically retrieving data and viewing it in Azure DevOps.
  • Accelerate Delivery by Understanding DevOps Feedback Loops and Value Stream Mana Recorded: Aug 19 2020 57 mins
    Lance Knight
    Understanding feedback loops is an essential part of value stream management to achieve the goal of delivering value to your customers faster. The presence of feedback loops exists throughout software development and delivery value streams. Understanding and acting on effective feedback and the impact of the action on all parts of the system forms feedback loops.

    In order to amplify feedback loops, you must first Identify them In your value stream and understand the causality of that loop. As you identify feedback loops, patterns start to develop. These patterns can be direct or indirect patterns and may be removed, automated, or amplified based on the causality of the loop.

    In this webinar, we will learn:

    What feedback loops mean to DevOps and Value Stream Management.
    - A high-level understanding of systems thinking and feedback loops.
    - What comprises feedback and the types of relevant feedback (direct and indirect) that help you create loops.
    - How feedback loops typically work, including the two types of feedback loops — balancing and reinforcing.
    - Feedback loop causality: why you have that feedback loop.
    - Identifying feedback loop patterns.

    The effect of feedback amplification is that it helps organizations maintain speed in their delivery process, as well as reducing or eliminating wait times and gaining efficiency. When you amplify feedback, you are making it visible.
  • Don’t Tool Up a Broken Value Stream: It’s Human Recorded: Jul 22 2020 17 mins
    Andrew Fuqua
    A well known failure mode for business process automation is to automate a broken process. The same goes for tooling up Value Stream Management. If you have an overly complex value stream, immobilized with dependencies or if you have a clumsy way to move work from ideation to engineering, disagreements over who has power over the plan, trying to tool up your value stream, to make it visible, is a waste of time and money.In this talk, Andrew Fuqua will look at some of the pitfalls of enterprises practicing value stream management with tooling and how to set them right. He will also explain the human aspect of the value stream. No matter how many tools and technologies you adopt, it ultimately takes a human to decide the value of any effort.
  • Value Stream Management: who is controlling the flow of work? Recorded: Jul 22 2020 16 mins
    Lance Knight
    Value stream management is starting to be considered the holy grail of software delivery for a good reason. Achieving a consistent, repeatable process flow with minimal waste is proven to accelerate both release velocity and quality. Yet, organizations (and our industry) may not be getting it right. This is illustrated in the way we represent value streams in a map. The problem lies not with value stream mapping itself, but rather with how organizations approach mapping and optimization. Software delivery isn’t a linear flow. Between rework, feedback loops, change requests, and other disruptions – and the streams of work orders and the code itself – nothing is simple. Add Agile and DevOps into the mix and the picture becomes even more complex. The question then becomes, exactly who – and what – controls the flow? In this talk, ConnectALL’s COO Lance Knight will explore this reality and offer practical advice on identifying and mapping all the value streams and activities on the road to software delivery predictability.
  • Gain Traceability of Requirements with IBM Rational DOORS and Jira Integration Recorded: Jun 18 2020 24 mins
    Johnathan McGowan
    Stop wasting time copying and pasting tickets. Say no to manual efforts, collaborate better, and respond to requirements faster.

    In an ALM environment, lack of collaboration and traceability can lead to lack of visibility, quality issues, and delivery delays, resulting in higher costs. Integrating IBM Rational DOORS with Jira will ensure end-to-end visibility into requirements across the software development and delivery lifecycle. With this integration, the product management team can track the development of each requirement and the development team can have real-time access to any updates/changes made to a scheduled requirement.

    In this webinar, we will demonstrate how any update to a requirement in DOORS will be automatically synced for the development team in real time. This will help ensure that requirement changes don’t fall through the cracks and the application delivered is what the customers need.
  • Visualize and Optimize Your End-to-End Value Stream with ConnectALL 2.10 Recorded: May 21 2020 34 mins
    Andrew Fuqua, Johnathan
    With more companies adopting value stream management as a means to evaluate the flow of value across their software delivery value stream, visibility needs to be simplified rather than complicated. To meet this challenge, ConnectALL has created v2.10 of its Value Stream Management Platform, which is packed with empowerment capabilities such as an interactive Value Stream Visualizer, enhanced lean metrics to provide actionable data for better decision-making, and a brand-new UI that will augment user experience, no matter what tool they use.

    In this 30-minute discussion, we will demo the value stream visualizer and show how you can generate interactive, customized maps. We’ll also show you how you can take advantage of ConnectALL’s integrated lean metrics.

    We will show you how:

    - The Visualizer generates an interactive diagram that traces the path of each integration mapped within ConnectALL, as well as additional elements and connections.
    - Users can edit integrations from within the map, or from within the UI and the map will be updated automatically.
    - Users can download a snapshot of the map to share outside the system.
    - ConnectALL Value Stream Insights captures all observable activities and computes lean metrics out of the box to provide teams with actionable data about the health of their value stream.
    - Lean metrics allows businesses to reduce waste between processes to increase time-to-market and time-to-value.

    We will also discuss how 2.10 empowers the real drivers of VSM – humans – to automate their entire value stream, as well as gain unprecedented visibility with granular insight into activities at every level and stage of the process.
  • Where’s the Business Value in Value Stream Management? Recorded: Apr 16 2020 32 mins
    Lance Knight, Andrew Fuqua
    An in-depth discussion on how business leaders can overcome visibility and flow issues in their software delivery pipeline, to deliver products faster and stay compliant.

    Every company today is inevitably a software company. Software is everywhere. With enterprises under pressure to drive value faster, deliver quality software and enhance customer experiences, the need to optimize value across value streams is more critical than ever.

    In this discussion, we will focus on the business value of value stream management:

    - End-to-end visibility, traceability, and governance over processes, which allows business leaders to see how business value flows across their value stream.
    - Access to metrics that allow business owners to make decisions in an agile manner and course-correct as required.
    - Introducing compliance at all stages, enabling teams to identify and resolve security issues before production.
    - Enabling faster build times and better quality of delivery, enabling the business to deliver greater value to customers.

    We will also discuss the human element of value stream management. You may have the tools to help you with reducing waste and increasing flow, but ultimately it takes a human to identify the business outcomes, find waste, monitor how information flows and make suggestions for process improvement.
