“DevOps is the next step in creating flow across and beyond the IT value stream.” ~ Mike Orzen, coauthor of the award-winning book Lean IT: Enabling and Sustaining Your Lean Enterprise and primary author of this Value Stream Mapping for DevOps.
What is the value stream? All of the steps that are currently performed to deliver products and services to end-users and customers – whether they add value or not. Value stream mapping has been identified as a critical skill for organizations adopting a DevOps approach.
This Value Steam Mapping (VSM) Interactive Session provides a practical understanding and hands-on experience with Value Stream Mapping. It was built in partnership with Mike Orzen, a recognized and prominent Lean thought leader and author. To better understand DevOps, you need to first understand Lean. Lean helps organizations manage and improve how we create and flow customer value with the least amount of effort.
This is a non-certification “drill-down” workshop accredited by the DevOps Institute. Drill-downs provider deeper knowledge about a specific practice within the DevOps spectrum.
From the Author, Mike Orzen: “As DevOps has taken off, I have seen many organizations embark on a journey to transform IT from a collection of silos focused on distinct and often conflicting goals to a single value stream connecting the customer, ideation, development, infrastructure, security, operations, and ongoing cycles of improvement. The essence of lean thinking is using a structured logical approach towards incremental improvement (Kaizen). A common mistake is to jump into activity without a clear grasp of the current state and solid understanding of the problems you are trying to address.
Fortunately, Lean methods provide a wonderful approach towards understanding your current state, identifying pain points and bottlenecks, identifying waste and non-value added work in the system, prioritizing potential improvements, and organizing for sustained growth. Without such shared a vision and road map, many DevOps initiatives go off the rails, losing focus and momentum. That’s why I created the new workshop, Value Stream Mapping for DevOps.
Mark Twain said, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.” Value stream mapping does just that: providing a structured way for a cross-functional team to collectively see where we are today (long release cycles, silos, waterfall, large deploys, damage control afterwards, etc.) and where we want to go (short release cycles, infrastructure as code, iterative development, continuous delivery, etc.).”
