Identify Your Organization’s Current Pain Points
There are always drivers that trigger the need for DevOps in an organization. Having a clear visibility of these drivers or pain points is key to define the right vision, and to obtain engagement from all stakeholders by clearly communicating ‘why’ DevOps is necessary.
Discover the Goals that are Relevant to Your Organization
Tying DevOps to specific and significant organizational goals helps maintaining the right focus throughout the initiative. In order to know which DevOps capabilities will represent the highest value to your organization, you must understand what your organizational goals are, aligned with the pain points your organization is facing.
Strategic DevOps Capabilities
Focus on the Most Significant Strategic DevOps Capabilities
Different DevOps components deliver different value to the organization. Based on the goals your organization has, you must place special focus on the strategic capabilities that represent the highest business value. Prioritizing the growth or adoption of these will allow the achievement of quick wins and demonstrate the success of your overall DevOps initiative.
Current State of DevOps
Assess Your Actual DevOps Capabilities Against Best Practices
The universally-accepted DevOps reference model consists of 24 capabilities organized in the four main categories of Transformational Leadership, Lean Product Development, Lean Management, and Continuous Delivery. An assessment in the light of this structure will provide clear visibility and guidance to place special focus on the most valuable items.
Analyze Performance from Different Perspectives
DevOps is more than just tools; all DevOps capabilities span across the aspects of Culture, Automation, Lean, Measurement and Sharing. Moreover, the organization uses People, Practices and Tools & Technology to enable DevOps. All of these elements must be assessed in order to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the overall DevOps organizational performance.
Obtain an Adoption/Growth Roadmap Based on Urgency
One of the principles of agility is focusing on value. Regardless of the many possible elements of DevOps an organization can adopt or develop, priority should be given to address the most urgent capabilities that represent the highest value to the organization.
