Speaker: Jeremy Baggish
After fourteen years as a professional association leader with a proclivity for IT and business analysis, Jeremy Baggish joined Knowledge Partners International (KPI) to expand his knowledge in the field of Business Decision Management and to take the opportunity of working directly with Larry Goldberg and Barbara von Halle, inventors and authors of The Decision Model – A Business Logic Framework linking Business and Technology (Taylor and Francis, 2009). Jeremy supports KPI’s The Decision Model training program and creates decision models for the insurance and financial services industries.
In this presentation, Jeremy will show how The Decision Model provides the missing element in the business analysis armory: a normalized and technology independent model that enables logic to be represented in a way that both the business and IT are able to clearly understand.

Event Details

A look at how management structures, certificates, methodologies and practices are evolving in SDLC organizations to meet the speed and innovation that drives today’s business environments.

The Software/Systems Development Lifecycle (SDLC) within organizations is the glue that holds together the mission critical application and system development projects. These projects are what drive innovation throughout the entire organization for both internal and external customers. It is these same innovations, usually in the form of internal process automation or external customer engagement solutions, which provide competitive advantage. With current market conditions, competitive advantage, even for a short window of time, can drive long term positive financial results.

The reality is that the basic structure, principles and purpose of SDLC organizations are changing rapidly. There is so much pressure within organizations to get process automation and customer facing solutions out as quickly as possible, that the SDLC glue is weakening and in need of change.

This session will go over the major changes at work in how the SDLC is run within organizations. It will be broken into five sections:
  • A look at the current Software/Systems Development Lifecycle
  • New methods or ways of getting the work done (Agile, Iterative or Scrumfall)
  • Transforming the BA and the PM
  • Changing how people are managed and the skills required to be successful
  • Data Analytics and its impact on SDLC professionals
  • Creating T-shaped employees
  • Trends in Certifications: what PMI, the IIBA, Scrum Alliance and IC Agile are offering for SDLC human capital growth
This presentation will provide you with details that will help with your capital and expense budget. It will also help you plan your human capital requirements for the future and develop individual deployment plans (IDPs) for your current staff. The ultimate goal is to provide you detailed information, so you can adapt and successfully manage through these evolutionary changes to the Software/Systems Development Lifecycle (SDLC).
