Taking Your DevOps Culture to the Fourth Ideal

How is your DevOps adoption going? Are you seeing results on par with the elite performers from the State of DevOps report, or is the transition causing anxieties and disengagement in your organization? Dana Pylayeva will zoom in on the cultural aspects of DevOps adoption and lead you through a number of experiments on a journey toward the fourth ideal: psychological safety. We will be using games and the Liberating Structures framework to practice turning DevOps fears into DevOps Culture success stories.
