Tools, Tips, and Tricks for DevOps Leaders

Add to calendar

DevOps requires people to adopt new ways of working, often necessitating a change in culture and climate, and therefore also in behaviors. This workshop is for people who are planning to be or are already actively involved in driving DevOps evolution in their own organization or organizations they consult for. You will learn about the role of leaders in DevOps, what it means to be a transformational leader, and how to coach people to learn new concepts, behaviors, methodologies, models, and frameworks. We will look at value streams, product-centric working models, target operating models, and organizational design, and take a deep dive into the psychology and neuroscience of change that will better equip you to make DevOps evolution happen. Come ready to get busy with exercises and discussion, to stretch your learning muscles, and to put new tools to the test.
