Green Screens

Problem

  • Unattended broken builds taking long time to fix, led to inefficiencies (20 developers)

What I did - Display build status

  • Inspiration: Toyota Stop & Fix
  • Plan: MVP defined, delivered after 4 iterations
  • Requirements: Visible from 20 ft., major web browsers, not mobile, updated every 60 s., show status of 7 projects & stats...
  • Development: Operational after 1st iteration, incremental improvements
  • Feedback: Demoed to developers after each iteration, feedback added as Stories
  • Operational: Other groups and locations interested in adopting the system

Results

  • Lead time reduction ($150K annual savings)
  • Culture shift, CI group ownership
  • Increased quality
