#DevOps – Start with WHY!

DevOpsGuys presented a short 30 min talk on the “Why” of DevOps last night at the @Magentys Enterprise DevOps event (sponsored by our good friends @Dyn).

The goal of the presentation was to give the attendees some of the reasons why the current models for product development and operations might not be suitable in a rapidly changing, cloud-hosting, mobile enabled world.

One of my favourite quotes from the talk if from a HBR article by John Kotter where he talks about how business needs to change (and not just IT!). We’ll be exploring some of Kotter’s ideas in our #DevOpsMBA series of blog articles over the coming months.

โ€œThe hierarchical structures and organizational processes we have used for decades to run and improve our enterprises are no longer up to the task of winning in this faster-moving worldโ€

John Kotter

The full slide deck is available below and on Slideshare.

If anyone is interested in having this presented to your teams or management at work to help kick-start your DevOps journey we’re happy to do an “encore performance” on-site (as long as you cover the travel expenses!).
