DevOps and Continuous Delivery are two of the strongest cultural trends in
IT today, and much has been said about what exactly they entail (and
many, many arguments about what they do not.) As CTO at Chef, I’ve had the pleasure of both
observing the behavior of hugely successful organizations and the despair
caused by businesses failing to successfully change how they operate.In this session I’ll describe how:

- DevOps and Continuous Delivery are reactions to the same fundamental
business forces – simply solutions to the problem driven from a different
point of view.
- The 5 key drivers of successfully transforming your organization into
a healthy, agile, forward-leaning, awesome place to work.
- Why the best advice about automation projects is the worst advice in
the face of a transition this huge.
- The idea that culture is more important than tools is wrong, if what
you care about is actually transforming your behavior.
- Why you must be prescriptive about the tool-chain you are going to
use, and brook no dissent once you’ve decided.
- How to organize and run the projects that will transform your business
into a model of both Devops and Continuous Delivery.

On the way we’ll talk about globalization, playing guitar, configuration
management, cognitive science, and the propensity of middle management to
murder great ideas with the most soft and pleasant of pillows.

It’ll be a good time.
