Understanding the Software Development Lifecycle (SDL) for non-Software Developers

To sign up for this session on Zoom please sign into your membership account and click here:

The Software Development Lifecycle (SDL) has been around for a long time and we all may have come across it at some point in our careers and if you’re not a developer it can often raise the question, what is the Software Development Lifecycle?

The Software Development Lifecycle comes with its own challenges for people across the business including those of us who are not developers, from Project Managers to Service Desk Analysts and these challenges can cause barriers for our day-to-day work.

By attending this event you will:

  1. Have an understanding of the Software Development Lifecycle (SDL) and what it means.

  2. Understand some of the challenges that developers face.

  3. Understand where these challenges impact your day-to-day work & how to approach them.

  4. Give you an understanding of how to work with the development teams to overcome these challenges & work effectively together.


Target Audience: All within a PMO function, Business Analysts, Service Desk Analysts (there are more roles, as this could benefit anyone)
