The Essential Role of the DevOps Coach, How to Steer Your Career in the Right Direction?


84% of all Digital Transformations fail for reasons nothing to do with technology. The 16% successful transformations address how people think, interact, and how they collaborate and work. Transformations are not about tools and technical training, but all about people and how to help them adopt new principles. That's where the DevOps Coach comes in. Supporting individuals and teams to adopt DevOps principles and coach them for performance and change.

But what is DevOps Coaching exactly, why are organizations investing in this and why is it working?

The simple answer to why DevOps Coaching matters is that DevOps requires a deep cultural shift towards a new mindset, behaviors, and ways of working. Having an Agile mindset is not enough. Individuals and teams need support to adopt true DevOps principles and understand the coach is that external peer who acts from a position of trust.

In this webinar, you will learn to appreciate the value of the DevOps Coach by looking at specific examples. We will look at how kids interact with their parents (they will more easily accept advice from their friends than from parents) and we will look at what COVID-19 has taught us so far (Collaboration & innovation have become more important despite many of us being more isolated and remote).

What is covered:

  • Why organizations are investing in DevOps Coaching capabilities
  • Top 5 reasons why professionals are becoming DevOps Coaches
  • Role, scope, and purpose of the DevOps Coach
  • DASA's Coaching Model
  • Introduction to the DASA Coach Trainers (Jorge/Christine, Sundaresh, Aland) of the upcoming program
  • Program Approach - become a certified DASA DevOps Coach in 9 sessions
