DevOps Is All The Rage But …

There is still much misunderstanding about how one can realize the promises of DevOps in one’s own organization.

Fortunately, the DevOps movement is rooted in principles much deeper than buzzwords.

Before the terms “Agile” and “DevOps” became common monikers, lessons from previous engineering endeavors were forming a rich source of lessons and methodologies to fuel both movements.

However, often the tie is not made between those precursor lessons and the seemingly “new” principles and practices of DevOps.

In this presentation Chris Knotts, PMP (LinkedIn profile) will review those foundations, explaining why they are so critical to any organization which hopes to realize success with DevOps or Agile principles at scale.

Everybody knows DevOps Is About
Bringing Dev & Ops Together

But DevOps is also about understanding value, fast delivery, automation, quality, and tuning complex adaptive systems in a way that optimizes the whole.

In The Phoenix Project: A Novel about IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win  there are a lot of parallels drawn between the world of mass manufacturing and IT engineering. But even though it’s a fantastic book, Gene Kim and his co-authors only scratch the surface of these parallels.

If we are actually going to apply them, we need more. The total quality revolution of manufacturing offers more lessons for IT engineering teams than most of us realize…way more than the taste we get in The Phoenix Project would suggest.

Join Chris Knotts, PMP – (LinkedIn profile) and learn the lessons can be summed up in one word: Lean.

Fast moving agile businesses need engaged teams that drive out faster testable insights for extremely reduced time from concept to cash.

NextGen Project Managers and Business Analysts meet this challenge with their own NextGen business competencies – to build shared understanding of trends, customer/market forces and organizational imperatives to drive fast value decision making.

They exert new forms of leadership to help teams of all kinds (IT and beyond) to seed their backlogs with innovative pre-flight tested, market ready ideas.

This series will be a four part deep dive into a competency wheel for new project leaders called the Discovery Leadership framework.

Developed by Kupe Kupersmith CBAP®, (LinkedIn @Kupe)President B2T Training, and Curtis Michelson (LinkedIn profile) with guidance from a global community, the framework is a holistic set of competencies grouped into four chunks.

  • How far can we see – into the future, into the business and into the customer and market forces that impact us?

That’s the differentiating edge we’ll explore in this first session.

There are two lenses through which we’ll peer in this session:

  1. The systems thinking lens and
  2. The customer and design thinking lens.

Those two lenses drive us to three core outcomes:

  1. Better problem statements or “hypotheses”,
  2. Richer multi-perspectival value stories and
  3. A laboratory for creating experiments to test your NextGen ideas.

Join Curtis Michelson in this deep dive into a competency wheel for new project leaders.

Course Learning Objectives Include:

  • Five essential factors that must be in place for NextGen insight generation
  • Four ways to get robust and timely customer insight
  • Two tools you can use for generating valuable models

With the Course You Will Receive:

  • Access to the Live and Recorded Version of Webinar
  • Personalized Certificate of Attendance
  • Copy of Presentation Slides

Presenter: Curtis Michelson (LinkedIn profile, @SpecsRex) is a Board officer of IIBA Central IIBA Florida chapter and brings a diverse professional background to bear on his consulting practice as a solo business analyst, speaker and trainer.With over 15 years in the software development lifecycle (SDLC) as well as prior work in Marketing and Communications, he brings a wide-angle view to organizational change initiatives.
