Steven Borg and Cheryl Hammond will be touring the country to deliver Leadership Roundtable Breakfast events with exclusive content designed to help leaders take a practical approach to reaching continuous delivery. Steve and Cheryl are recognized industry experts in enterprise agility and lean/agile transformations. What does that have to do with Continuous Delivery with Azure, Agility, and Automation, you ask? Plenty! Enterprise agility is much more than self-organizing teams and delivering code in short increments. It is also about putting the right technical foundations in place to support those teams for an ever faster delivery cadence.

These 3-hour Leadership Roundtables will be interactive and fun! Join Steven or Cheryl as they cover Azure, Agility, and Automation –tie them all together – and shed a light on the next steps you can take to deliver code faster.


Azure plays an important role in modern continuous delivery practices, as it supports extremely rapid development cycles, near-infinite scaling, and dramatically reduced up-front costs. DevOps and DevTest become accessible to mere mortals when Azure infrastructure and platforms are used. Not only that, but Staging and Production environment management becomes trivial, allowing new releases to be tested in a near clone of the production environment prior to release.


Agility is enabled through leadership, and creates the right mindset and processes that support rapid delivery of value.


Automation is key to delivering at the speed of market. It not only removes human error and speeds work, it can actually transform the team. Once key processes are automated, teams behavior changes.  Since small units of functionality can now be delivered quickly, teams begin to shift their thinking and actions in subtle ways that reinforce agility and more frequent deliveries. They even start to decompose requirements more granularly so they can be released in smaller chunks!

At the end of these Roundtable events, you will leave with a clear understanding of why Azure, Agility, and Automation are key to enterprise agility. You will also have a plan around how to take the next steps with your team.

Audience and Prerequisites:

The events are targeted at business decision makers and technology leaders.
