Topic: The Enterprise DevOps Mind Trap (or – Why this talk won’t make a difference)

DevOps is the implementation of Continuous Delivery and Agile concepts across the organization, focusing on pipelines as the main building blocks for delivering value internally and to the customer. But getting to that state is complicated because it requires several facets of work:  People, process and tools.
In large organizations ,we have the added complexity of :
-Multiple dependencies and sub systems
– Multiple teams, groups, business units with competing interests
– Varying degrees of agility, culture, tools, technologies and processes
– Security, compliance and policy gatesAnd lastly
– Mind traps.

We get stuck making changes in the organization, for so many reasons, so many fears. Even little changes seem to be impossible. In this talk, we will discuss main patterns and anti patterns for adopting and implementing DevOps in “challenged” organizations, starting with our own personal mind traps – and how to avoid them. You should be able to take this advice and apply it immediately.
