Abstract

Does the delivery of new features routinely take precedence over fixing technical debt at your company? Revenue protection work is like a poster child for the objectionable, “not in my project” response from project managers. An important constituent when it comes to maintaining a prosperous business, revenue protection work always seems to take a back seat to feature driven requests - especially when work is managed by project versus product. This talk explores the benefits of managing products through the lens of a value stream to better expose risks, examine priorities and reduce dependencies.
