VSM and DevOps Predictions 2022


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

Sponsored by Plutora


2021 has been a breakthrough year for value stream management (VSM). From the inaugural State of VSM report and expansion of the Value Stream Management Consortium to the rise of advanced VSM platforms, value stream management continues to grow as an industry. 

As we look to 2022, VSM platforms will continue providing actionable insights for DevOps teams. Product and new VSM roles will leverage these insights as they look to holistically improve the flow of work through value streams.
