DevOps has become nearly ubiquitous amongst IT teams, but many organizations still find themselves lagging. You’ve got the tools, the titles, the processes, and the practices in place—so why won’t DevOps stick?
The problem is people: If you don’t have a strong DevOps culture in place, all your efforts will be in vain. We’re here to talk about the oft-unspoken-of organizational changes you need to make in order to run DevOps successfully. Our presenters Yogi Aradhye, Bill Ross, and Patrick McVeety-Mill are all seasoned consultants who have been part of DevOps teams and guided DevOps transformation for clients. They’ll discuss:
- How culture impacts DevOps
- What has worked for us in our organization
- What changes we bring to client teams
- What success looks like in terms of culture-building
Much cultural change comes down to communication, autonomy within teams, and streamlining the entire delivery process. Join us to learn how to become a catalyst for change within your own organization and deliver greater value to your customers.
