“You don’t change culture team by team or app by app. You don’t get to pick and choose where you DevOps. You can do it for a while – operating bi-modally – in order to experiment, to allow new ways of working to incubate, but it is essential to converge quickly. DevOps is not a piecemeal tool, it is an organisational transformation.” – The IT Skeptic Blog, July 22, 2017
This blog isn’t about DevOps. There are now thousands to choose from with authors off all walks. This blog is about Rob England and his blog, The IT Skeptic.
If you haven’t read this blog, start. It’s a must read. In fact, I’ve spent evenings rolling through his old content to follow his train of thought in the hottest topics all IT shops struggle with: How to do IT service delivery, effectively. It’s an art. It’s not simple. And done poorly, costs organizations dearly.
I do not have a recommendation where to start. If you read his last blog, currently on December 5, 2017, it’s titled, “Project Management was the worst thing that ever happened to IT“… Wow. And right on target. Do organizations think this way? Most can not.
