I was just asked a few days ago, do you know what SCRUM and Agile are? Yes, was my answer. Have I used it? Yes. Continuous Improvement and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) has been the ongoing motto for change management and process improvements ever since the days of the software development life cycle (SDLC).
I was trained by Xerox Corporation while working at Microsoft Corporation both in software, project management, and manufacturing. The entire quality circle and continuous improvement process is ongoing always.
You take an idea, becomes a project, beta and test from prototype to alpha and then beta, and with stakeholder and client approvals and check offs, going into final delivery and final production, and then you repeat the whole process.
Where do the ideas come from? The process itself. People are always interacting with computers and things. When something seems slow or inefficient, then an idea of who to improve it comes to mind and is passed along to the improvement processes team which looks at the situation and confirms or denies, performs corrective actions in the existing state of things, or rolls the changes into the change and development delivery cycle.
Some changes come fast, and some come slow. That is unfortunate but for some, training and awareness of changes is required as to not introduce errors and frustration into the existing business and existing processes.
there is so much to cover yet lets just keep it simple.
more to come...
