Presentation: "Getting buy-in for implementing CD"

Track: Solution Track Thursday 2 / Time: Thursday 14:30 - 15:20 / Location: Westminster Suite

Oh, you've read the book, listened to a few talks on CD and are convinced that this is something your organisation should be paying more attention to. But the first challenge is, how do you convince other parts of the organisation and the senior management that they should invest time and money into this initiative.This talk focuses on identifying some of the main obstacles to CD adoption and discusses approaches to resolving them. We will take a look at issues within the delivery team, team's interaction with the business as well as getting the buy-in from senior stakeholders.
