Abstract:
It seems that everyone is aflutter with DevOps, the shiny new panacea for all of our software ailments. What technical goodness can DevOps bestow upon us? What riddles does it unlock for us as technologists? How do business goals align in order to wring the true value from DevOps?
Delivering value faster is a desire of many business and IT leaders, and it often looks like a win-lose proposition to achieve it. Metrics and edicts seem to have competing interests, like the car racer being told to "go faster" and "save fuel." Barry and Allison will share their experiences with organizations and teams embracing DevOps and how it impacted both IT and business. We’ll explore the dynamics of goals and the conflict they can incite through an interactive game to further dive into what happens when DevOps is and isn’t in tandem with agile coaching.
Join us to look at what it means to align business and IT goals for creating a successful DevOps culture and how agile coaching fits in.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Recognize lack of alignment between business and IT goals related to DevOps and know it doesn't have to be a win-lose proposition
  • Understand how approaching DevOps adoption (how the goal is set and communicated) can support or hurt a shared business vision and objectives
  • Describe where agile coaching can support lean product development and lean management concepts to amplify a DevOps culture
