DevOps and the Culture of High-Performing Software Organizations
The DevOps movement emphasizes the importance of culture in creating high-performing teams. However, often perceived to be subjective and intractable, culture is often neglected in favor of more concrete drivers such as tools and processes. And this is a major failure mode in organizations attempting to achieve substantially improved performance through implementing agile and DevOps. Jez Humble takes a practical, data-driven approach to culture, illustrated with examples from large, successful enterprises. Learn how to measure culture and examine what a generative, high-performance culture looks like. Explore how to change organizational culture, and discover how high-performing organizations use the patterns and practices of continuous delivery and lean management to outcompete their peers. Jez concludes by presenting the principles behind successful organizational change―and how to make your changes stick.
