the do's in DevOps way of working

Act as a team.

  • The whole team is responsible and accountable… E2E
  • The whole team is responsable and accountable for the results
  • It is all about team commitment
  • Think DevOps
  • Your team should sit together in one room
  • If this is not possible, use webcam and so on.

Take the Scrum process as it is in the books…

  • Scrum/DevOps: Just do it
  • Every team meeting should be 100% attended by the team
  • Refinement sessions, it also about:
  • How, what, where and when testing? and Implementation procedures
  • Deployment always in the whole DT (CT) AP
  • Current Sprint is realisation

The next 2 sprints are discussed in the refinement

Differentiation on the Scrum (book) process... after the first year. First find and feel the benefits of this (small) process.

So don't start with a differentiated Scrum process.

Product Owner is owner of the PB

He/she will take care about:

  • Business stories
  • Prioritization of open Problems
  • he/she can have a delegate PO for Problems to advice the PO
  • Infra changes
  • he/she can have a delegate PO for Infra changes to advice the PO
  • IT Ops processes automation/improvements
  • because this creates more capacity to create more business value

Deployment mindset

  • Story is ready for deployment into production? Just do… the same day
  • Don’t change your Change proces
  • be aware that you may have more deployments… every day, more than ones.
  • You will see different type of changes: low risk, small en minor changes and changes with outage.
  • ITIL Incident & Problem processes will not change…
