The definition of release management has evolved many times over the last 30 years. However, it has always involved chasing down individuals across an organization to get value delivered and managing multiple interdependent silos to push new changes through to production. We’ve come so far, but we can still do much better. 

The transition from waterfall projects to self-driven stream-aligned teams has changed everything. Release management now requires a paradigm shift to meet the needs of these new ways of working. To achieve this, release managers must change from managing complexity to conducting software delivery across an organization as though it were an orchestra. They need to be able to focus on unblocking value streams and identifying areas of improvement instead of fighting fires. They need to be data-driven to measure progress and discover hidden opportunities. We’ll show you how release management is changing from noisy chaos to musical flow.

Join Steve Pereira, CEO of Visible and Jeff Keyes, VP of product marketing & strategy at Plutora to learn how release management is evolving to meet the needs of a DevOps world with value stream management practices. 

In this webinar, you’ll learn: 

  • Why release management needs to focus on orchestration
  • How to focus on human elements of development for continuous improvement
  • How release management is evolving into value stream management
