Are your developers Agile, creating more frequent releases? Are your Ops teams overwhelmed, keeping valuable software sitting on the shelf because they are unable to keep up with the rapid pace of Agile delivery? How can Ops teams eliminate manual and error-prone deployments and processes to achieve the velocity needed to put software into production, where value is delivered. This morning on Continuous Discussions we discussed (+cracked ourselves up) some tips and lessons learned when trying to align your Ops processes to support Agile development velocity downstream. Watch the replay of the episode to learn how culture and team culture affect your Agile processes downstream, what is the right-kind of accountability, how to map your value stream, optimizing your inter-team handoffs and your automation processes, and what does wine, pie (and a bucket of water) have to do with everything.
