Building DevOps Greatness with Culture
Although the DevOps movement is largely associated with technology and software development and delivery processes, all organizations can benefit from the cultural foundations that foster trust and cooperation to enable the delivery of quality goods and services at velocity. This workshop explores the cultural and foundational aspects of what makes DevOps movements successful, regardless of where they are implemented, and why these are important. Hint: they are predictive of individual, team, and organizational performance.
Nicole will cover these essential components of DevOps culture, and lead the group in exercises to identify which components are strongest in their own teams. She will then present strategies to support and grow areas that can be improved upon.
This workshop is highly participatory, with activities that include:
* exploration and assessment of organizational culture using validated tools,
* practice developing and communicating the importance of culture in DevOps transformations
* stories and case studies about the importance of culture and its impact on tooling and practice
* common challenges surrounding implementing a DevOps culture
As a trained facilitator, Nicole comes prepared to also take the group in another direction if the discussion leads them there — it really is Choose Your Own Adventure.
