Leona Grzymkowski – First National Bank of America
Processes – a developer’s worst nightmare. So why did we work to add more of them?! The answer is that processes give developers a structure to rely on. Processes are the common bond of all development tasks. If done well, processes give tasks a roadmap to completion, eliminating the need to decode and decipher them.
In her current role, Leona Grzymkowski has taken on implementing structured quality assurance processes into an already established software development lifecycle (SDLC). This presentation will outline the path First National Bank of America took to change the perspective on how development work is accomplished, who is involved in the process, and how to open the lines of communication between internal groups. Processes are hard work, but by providing guideposts along the path to a formalized and rigid SDLC process, this presentation will help to reveal the benefits.
Throughout this presentation, examples of what First National Bank of America has done on their journey to become as streamlined and productive as possible and how they handle unprecedented disruption in their day-to-day work will be highlighted.
