Value stream management (VSM) shares a drive for efficiency with DevOps. Both VSM and DevOps look to identify and remove bottlenecks in software development and delivery to increase operational efficiency and collaboration. 

However, VSM and DevOps are guided by different metrics. VSM focuses on the efficiency of the flow of work across the system of software development and delivery using the value stream flow metrics.  Alternatively, DevOps utilizes the DORA metrics which while also focused on efficiency, target different components of the value stream. To know when and how to use both sets of metrics effectively you first need to understand how each guides us to improve our pipelines. 

Join Jeff Keyes, VP of Product at Plutora and Helen Beal, industry leader in DevOps evolution, to learn more about how to use the DORA and value stream flow metrics to improve the value you deliver to your customers. 

Key takeaways: 

  • Understand how the DevOps and flow metrics to drive organizational performance
  • Learn how to improve the flow of work in and performance of your value streams
  • How to use VSM to continuously inspect and adapt for enterprise agility

Go back through your past webinar inventory and see what events produced the most registrants. Sure – this will vary by topic but what got their attention initially was the description you wrote.

Paint a mental image of the benefits of attending your webinar. Often times this can be summarized in the title of your event.

You have to make them focus and you have to do it fast. Using an active voice and bullet points is great way to do this.

  • It reflects on your professionalism even if it has nothing to do with your event.
