Tracking the releases’ progress

Introduction

Accelerate follows a continuous delivery model to move each release through the release processes of the participating agencies.

Continuous delivery views deployment activities as a pipeline with a series of validations through which the product increment(s) must pass on the way to deployment.

The product release board is used to display the status and progress of the release as it moves towards full deployment. A scrum of scrums can be used to review and communicate progress across agencies.

At each stage feedback is provided to the team who may adjust the material in the release using a number of different techniques to complete testing of updated material.
