devops-cultureDevOps is first and foremost a mindset . While encompassing tools and processes as well, any DevOps initiative must begin  with a cultural change. 90 of all DevOps initiatives without a culture component fail, and culture is not easily or quickly changed. On this morning's #c9d9 episode we asked our panelists to share their views on the most crucial component to any DevOps transformation:  How do you foster a culture conducive of DevOps? How do you create an environment based on mutual respect, experimentation and disciplined freedom? Watch the recording below to learn tips, best practices, and real-world examples for how organizations navigate the cultural shift to Agile, DevOps & Continuous Delivery - from the leadership's perspective, as well as at the teams' level. How do you facilitate silo-busting and system-level thinking? how do you encourage experimentation? support a blameless culture, constant practice for game-day, and more.
