Uniting Development and Operations
DevOps is becoming a familiar word in the world of IT and as a result shifting the focus away from separate departments working independently to an organization-wide collaboration. It’s about addressing all the work as a whole, versus looking only at the bits and pieces, or only looking at capital versus expense.
One of the leaders of the DevOps movemen is Dominica DeGrandis (@dominicad), who teaches and coaches teams using Kanban for IT Operations and Development Operations. She is an independent consultant as well as an associate of David J. Anderson. Her background includes ten years of doing Configuration Management, build and deployment automation, and server & environment maintenance, followed by leading teams performing those functions.
I think whether you are a Dev/Ops or just a Kanban fan, you can take some insight from this podcast. You don’t just have to be in IT to receive value from this conversation. Enjoy the podcast. Enjoy the podcast.
