With over 50% of large it enterprises using, or intending to use, a DevOps approach in the next year, less than half of those already using DevOps report any level of success. When asked to identify the biggest obstacle to adopting DevOps, most cite “people” challenges - as opposed to process, technology or information - as the greatest issue.*
Resistance to change is the biggest barrier to DevOps adoption; and the best way to overcome resistance of this kind is to clearly communicate the DevOps case for change.
THE ANSWER: THE G2G3 DEVOPS SIMULATION
The G2G3 DevOps simulation is a highly interactive experiential learning workshop which demonstrates the business value and positive impact of a DevOps approach.
Accelerates adoption of DevOps across the enterprise
Turns DevOps opponents into advocates
Clearly communicates the DevOps case for
Accelerates a positive DevOps culture
Creates shared understanding for Development
and Operations around how to work together as
a high performing cross-functional team
Provides new practices that can be executed
with immediate effect.
How it works?
THE SIMULATION IS TYPICALLY DELIVERED OVER 3 ROUNDS
ROUND 1 – CHAOS
Participants are quickly immersed into a real life complex application development scenario. Chaos ensues, with poor communication and a lack of collaboration resulting in poor business results, higher development costs, longer testing times and more. As a result, opportunities are lost and revenues are negatively impacted. Following the first round, a review is facilitated to identify the issues and to discuss how a DevOps approach could drive improvement.
ROUND 2 -IMPROVED
Round 2 builds upon the learning outcomes from the previous round and introduces processes such as Service Virtualization, Minimum Viable Product iterations, Fail Faster and more. This drives maturity and empowers the teams towards automation, building a more collaborative culture, and ultimately improved business results.
ROUND 3 – OPTIMIZED
Building on the learning outcomes of Round 1 and 2, participants learn that instilling a DevOps culture is key to achieving operational excellence. Participants experience a pronounced shift in the reduction of development times and the number of errors each application had before reaching operations. Through collaboration, streamlining, automation and repeatable practices, participants realize improved ROI and optimized business results.
