Scaling DevOps [English]
Scaling DevOps [English]
An online workshop taking you through the similarities and differences in ten widely used scaling frameworks, teaching you to analyse them and pick the one (or parts of several) that best fit your organisation and its goals.
DevOps describes a philosophy that relies heavily on a team-oriented setup. In larger organizations, there are therefore a number of challenges (communication, governance, planning/control, security, ...) to be solved, which will be addressed in this seminar.
The goal is to enable participants to think not "inside" a given framework, but rather have a broad understanding, enabling them to understand any given framework and consider if and how any given framework fits their own organisation's goals and situation.
In order to enable this learning, the participants may choose from several scenarios for the workshop portions, or alternately are welcome to supply their own.
All those who want to receive concrete advice on successful DevOps implementation specifically in larger companies, e.g. IT management executives, project managers, team leaders, service managers, scrum masters, agility masters, product owners, application managers, IT operations managers, involved employees.
The workshop first presents three scaling approaches in more detail: The fundamental philosophy and principles behind SAFe, LeSS and ITIL for use in larger DevOps organizations are explained. Then, seven other scaling approaches are briefly presented and the most important content and success factors for use in larger DevOps organizations are elaborated. A great deal of emphasis and time is placed on comparing the approaches and applying them individually to practice.
