Session Title How to get your boss to approve MDD

Session Type Tutorial

Duration 75 minutes

Session Description

The idea of generating the code sounds intriguing but your boss isn’t giving you the resources. Even some of your colleagues are sceptical about code generation. This session offers practical solutions to get others on your side - without that you put your career at risk. While some managers may value competitors’ experiences and analysts’ opinions, often the only way is to show something working in your own context. We show proven, incremental steps to convince people, from a small demo through a pilot project to collecting data from full implementation, all backed up with real-world cases. With this roadmap you can overcome the hurdles and win even risk-averse managers to your side.

Participants will learn practical guidelines on selling the idea of MDD to their managers and the other developers. These address the questions most risk-averse managers and sceptical developers ask.
