Seeking perfection through process optimization

So often, organizations working to adopt DevOps initially focus on selecting tools and manipulating their choices to automate obsolete and flawed processes hoping to maximize efficiency. Automation is the easy part. But without optimizing the core and unlocking the legacy, an organization will never realize its true potential. Optimizing the system as a whole – a system made up of people, processes, and tools – means reviewing, questioning and potentially changing how things are across the entire lifecycle.

So, during this session, let’s take a look at techniques to map the value stream, identify some of the typical limitations/constraints, work through what it could become, and gain visibility into managing the invisible queues enabling organizations to make better decisions going forward.
