Transforming Culture with DevOps Principles

Ashley Hunsberger

Lisa Crispin

Half-day workshop - in English

Have you ever found the need for change, but had no idea how to move forward? Without a clear path or the support necessary to succeed, change - especially cultural change - can be daunting. Transformation can be scary and faced with resistance, but it doesn’t have to be.

At the heart of DevOps is the idea that teams work together to innovate faster, reducing the length of feedback loops and delivering value. Applying principles of collaborative practices, continuous improvements, incremental testing, and continuous learning can transform culture - not only within development teams, but also in some less obvious places.

Join me as we go through some real-world examples of applying principles that can lead to real change! We will draw analogies from the automotive safety industry - and show that these principles don't have to be used just in the context of a DevOps organization. 

We'll take a look at ways to get organized and find your team's purpose, identify and prioritize work, learn and define iterative feedback loops, and design experiments for continuous learning!
