"Lean" creator and Agile legend Mary Poppendieck returns to Skills Matter this September.  We are very excited to have Mary join us for an in-depth and engaging talk in true Poppendieck fashion, to examine the way in which the pace of software delivery influences – and is influenced by – the development process, the business model, and the governance system.

In agile development, the length of an iteration tends to be somewhere between two and four weeks. But this doesn’t mean that software is delivered to customers every iteration – quite the contrary – software release cycles vary all over the map.

Deliveries of new versions of software are often months or even years apart. And it turns out that this matters; organizations with release cycles of six months or longer are quite different from organizations with daily or weekly releases. Their processes are different, their governance approaches are different, even their business models are different.
