Pitching Continuous Delivery to ManagementWritten by Bill Amberg on
Implementing continuous delivery is an ongoing process. There are many areas where you can continue to improve. Test automation and monitoring, for example, are both worthwhile and achievable with an incremental approach.
Often you need air cover from management to make these changes. Integrating continuous delivery practices can disrupt institutional processes. Upper management has to settle any conflicts that arise from differing opinions. Sharing this knowledge will help decision-makers understand where you're coming from.
Remember that your managers are passionate about the products too. In that way they want the same thing that you do. This presentation aims to reconnect upper management with how we build software. The key takeaways are the metrics of a healthy product and mitigation of concerns.
