How to save a troubled project: A case study of transitioning to Takt Time at project closeout – Rines

Takt time is a planning tool, with careful attention to balancing workflow, for setting up a project to complete on time. How do you shift the culture of a project from full-on production to closeout to stop the bleeding of time? This paper will explore the challenges of implementing a paradigm-shifting workforce management plan in the closeout phase when the project was executed with poor original planning and an incomplete critical path method schedule. This paper will address the multiple lessons learned from the practical application of executing a collaborative endeavor involving owner, contractor and subcontractors to switch everyone’s thinking from push to pull planning.

How to Successfully Manage the Pivot from DevOps to DevSecOps – Boyle

DevOps has necessarily matured into DevSecOps, but there is a significant focus disparity with the Sec element. As the ‘middle child’ Sec is often over looked and under-resourced.

DevSecOps is a holistic approach and only achieves full performance potential when all elements are working in harmony- this can only be achieved if the elements are generally in balance. Typically, attention and resources are only reactively provided to the Sec element and are withdrawn after the issue passes. There are management processes and techniques that have been proven to raise the Sec element awareness and result in long-term stable attention and resources, resulting in the Sec element being able to make greater and broader impacts, and in improved overall DevSecOps team efficiency. Understand the difference between DevOps and DevSecOps, how best to manage the pivot from DevOps to DevSecOps, and the lessons learned/best practices in maturing your DevSecOps organization.
