Topics Covered

The 2022 State of Value Stream Management research provided a fascinating glimpse inside the evolution of software delivery. We’ll use that data to discuss next year’s trends, and attempt to predict how the challenges of delivering customer value in an increasingly competitive market will evolve next year - particularly as we face economic uncertainty.

Join Rupert Field and Bob Davis as they bring their unique perspectives to this discussion about how software delivery will evolve in 2023.


During this interactive webinar, Field and Davis will answer questions including:


  • Does the definition of value change in an economic downturn?
  • Centralized and functional command/control models focus on cost efficiency; value stream thinking is about optimizing value delivery. What does crossing that chasm mean for different organizations?
  • The enormity of the digital transformation challenge means that many organizations have slowed their momentum. What improvements will we see in the alignment of business strategy and software delivery?
