OK! You have read the Phoenix project, the Lean startup, and know the Scrum guide in and out. Time to make this work in your own organization, that happens to be a large corporate. What follows is deception, resistance and a large need for patience.

In my role as consultant, implementing DevOps mainly within large companies I encountered many situations that did not really fit the textbook.

In this session, I will talk about my experiments, challenges, failures and insights when implementing DevOps and share some theories and concepts that really helped me to survive the corporate journey and to be (sometimes) successful.

You will learn:

  • Change management
  • About tips & techniques to implement DevOps (or any change)
  • About theories to help you be a better consultant
