Content of the course

Your leadership style directly affects how people respond to changes in leadership, people, processes, and technology. How you lead determines your organization’s success. 

When members of the organization are motivated, work autonomously, and feel ownership in an environment where there is a clearly shared product vision, (formal or informal) leadership, and a culture of trust, the organization achieves maximum business value.

The new DASA DevOps Leader certification enables you to exercise leadership principles with like-minded DevOps leaders, and focuses on how to lead, drive, and support a successful DevOps transformation in practice. 

State of the art and state of the practice examples and key concepts, principles and practices are used to inspire and provoke you, and challenge you to form an opinion and translate this to actionable strategies and activities.

The course will equip you with the tools you need to overcome cultural change challenges related to DevOps implementations. It will help you learn to reflect on the appropriate leadership style and approach in your personal and organizational context to help you create successes.

Topics covered in the course

The DASA DevOps Leader assessment is based on building a transformation plan and presenting/defending this plan with two independent Assessors from the pool of highly experienced senior professionals who have led and been part of similar transformations before.

The plan that you develop will require you to apply the relevant frameworks that are covered during the course while building a well thought through transformation journey covering various dimensions of the transformation.

This assessment approach is grounded in the experiential learning and activity-based learning philosophies, focused on learning through reflection. Participants are encouraged to begin constructing their plan from week 1 of the program, while continuing to add to it during the entire 8-week course.

Course audience

The DASA DevOps Leader beta is aimed at leaders who have working experience and interest in taking a (formal or informal) leadership role within their organization. These leaders help teams and organizations to transform to become more nimble, grow revenues and profits, accelerate new value propositions, increase the performance of teams and get more business value out of IT.

What will you learn

When you have acquired the required knowledge from this certification program, you will be able to:

  • Recollect key drivers for digital disruption, and understand the role DevOps plays in digital transformations, and the role DevOps Leaders can play in leading these transformations.
  • Distinguish contemporary leadership styles and practices and their pros and cons in a DevOps environment, and apply these to your organization and/or transformation.
  • Apply learnings to create a value case, ‘why,’ and scope of your DevOps transformations.
  • Understand key ingredients that organizations and leaders need to invest in for creating the right “smell of the place,” attracting and retaining talented employees, and developing a high-performance culture in your organization.
  • Analyze how to change traditional “Business vs. IT” operating models and governance structures to DevOps-supporting ones.
  • Analyze how best to optimize between team autonomy and ownership on the one hand, and architectural, technical, and organizational constraints on the other hand to manage quality, IT risk, and compliance in a DevOps organization.
  • Compare and contrast personal and organizational leadership patterns and anti-patterns in the various stages of a DevOps transformation and from various perspectives, such as people, process, and technology.
  • Lead a transformation within your organizational context with a focus on the key DASA DevOps principles, values, and practices.
  • Own your digital leadership journey throughout the transformation by continuously reflecting, learning, and (re)defining your leadership style.
