We all love the aspirational DevOps talks about companies achieving blistering speed and dazzling nimbleness. But improving your own organization’s performance – from where they are now to performance levels equal to the industry leaders – seems like a very long and difficult road. What is missing in most organizations? A repeatable system that empowers teams to find and fix their own problems. This is a prescriptive talk about empowering and transforming organizations using a methodical — and totally reasonable – Kaizen (Continuous Improvement) approach. We’ll look at ways of combining known techniques like value stream mapping, Lean waste analysis, and improvement kata in order to fix organizational, process, and tooling problems. This talk isn’t about mythical silver bullets or vague philosophies. This talk is about taking a fresh look at proven Lean techniques that already work in high-performing IT organizations.
