The Agility of Saturday Night Live

Monday, November 14 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
725 Kingsland Ave Suite 100, University City, MO 63130


In 1975 Saturday Night Live was an unproven, untested startup. Over the subsequent 47 years, they have developed and delivered small batches of comedy in weekly intervals to become a consistent innovator in comedy. But how do they do it? Turns out, the practices and principles they employ are quite entrepreneurial. From welcoming changing requirements to maintaining technical excellence, there’s a lot we can learn from how they deliver. Join us for a back stage and on stage view into the process SNL has developed over decades to get from concept to cash in one week. Along the way we’ll gain a new understanding of empirical process control, continuous delivery, the care and feeding of high performing teams, dependency and deadline management, what it means to deliver value continuously, and how to understand customers. We’ll look ash the tools they use to deliver on time, and how they keep work visible for the entire organization. And we’ll probably laugh a lot too.
