DevOps and Agile Go Mainstream

The DevOps Principles that guide us support the ultimate search for flow in the delivery of IT Services

  • 1 Customer-centric action (Courage to act, Innovate)
  • 2 Create with the end in mind (Product & Service thinking, Engineering mindset, Collaborate)
  • 3 End-to-End responsibility (Live your accountability, Concept to Grave, performance support)
  • 4 Cross-functional autonomous teams (T-shaped profiles, complementary skills)
  • 5 Continuous Improvement (If it hurts do it more often, experiment, fail fast)
  • 6 Automate everything you can (Enhance quality, maximize flow)

The DASA Development Teams have captured the essential characteristics for any DevOps initiative into six DevOps principles. The Skills and Knowledge areas of the DASA competence framework strongly correlate to these principles. This way prospective DevOps professionals will share a common frame of reference and understand the importance of DevOps behavior, mindset and culture when transforming their organizations to the new world of IT.
