WHAT:    Developer Popularism
         Software developers, the people responsible for world-changing
         software, are increasingly becoming empowered, making decisions about
         what tools they use, how they work and even what devices they work
         on. Software is now more important to basic business operations than
         ever, but software management may be even more critical. ALM
         (Application Lifecycle Management) is the discipline that describes
         the application of business management to the practice of software
         development from idea to delivery. Empowered developers, or developer
         popularism, enforces a fundamental change to ALM. The complexity of
         the change from a single process, single tool based model to
         something more intricate can be daunting. Kersten and West will
         describe why developer popularism is happening, what that means to
         developers and how developers need to engage with management and
         other constituents in the software value chain to ensure that ALM
         continues to provide value. Attendees will obtain a full
         understanding of what it takes to achieve management oversight with
         developer freedom.
