Introducing: Agile Application Lifecycle Management (05:19)

Automate the Agile ALM process or it will become too unwieldy and do not forget to include all the stakeholders. Aiello suggests incorporating DevOps to streamline. Common misconceptions include trying to define all tasks; incorporate more controls as the project matures.

Why Do We Need ALM? (05:34)

Experts suggest getting to know your team members, selling the mission, excellent communications, building trust, and removing extraneous distractions to help keep a team motivated and efficient. Take a system wide view of existing processes to discover what needs to be improved and works well. Aiello describes how ALM helps prevents mistakes and discover security vulnerabilities.

Aiello suggests holding a retrospective meeting post-project to analyze the team's efficacy. Recognize that pure Agile practices are not always successful; consider a hybrid approach.

Changing Organizational Leadership and Culture (04:37)

An effective team leader needs to motivate the team, be able to present different points of view, and reduce the effects of a silo. An organization will be more successful if it encourages members to learn and share information. If employees are not afraid to come forward when they make a mistake, the company will be more successful.

Best practices include working with all the stakeholders, taking an iterative approach, incorporating Agile methodology, identifying milestones, and focusing on transparency and traceability. Aiello recommends continuous automation testing and improving collaboration.
