By popular demand and touted as one of the most informative, exciting and interactive sessions at last year's ALM Summit, the "User Panel" hosted by Sam Guchenheimer is back! Our goal is to take an insider's look at the challenges and options facing teams and their organizations as they transform from siloed practices to integrated ALM. In this year's session, Sam will start by validating how well many of the widely held "ALM Industry Truths" deliver in the cold stark reality in which we live. As with last year, this session will be fueled by the audience and the topics where you feel the most urgency. We have assembled a diverse panel of experienced leaders from very different companies in very disparate geographies. Representing the agile (purists) we have Rob Maher: Scrum Coach, one of the founding trainers of Scrum.Org, active community contributor and Microsoft ALM MVP. Representing the admittedly heterogeneous world of "Big design up front" Enterprise development at the impossibly large, we have Michael Surface, Solutions Architect at Boeing. Finally representing the often unsung heroes in the QA world we have author, trainer and noted Test expert Senior QA Consultant Debra Forsyth.
