Cultural aspects of creating a highly evolved DevOps organization

Nov 2, 2021 by David Morgenthaler


Join Armory for a roundtable discussion with DevOps leaders to examine the impact that company and team culture have on DevOps adoption rates.

Following in the footsteps of Puppet’s 2021 State of DevOps report, Armory’s Thomas McGonagle sat down for a discussion with
• James Bland Global Tech Lead — DevOps, AWS,
• Margaret Francis, COO & President, Armory, and
• Nigel Kersten, Field CTO, Puppet

to examine the myriad factors that affect a company’s success in adopting DevOps. This talk was born from some of the key findings of Puppet’s report. In light of Puppet’s finding that “cultural blockers are keeping mid-[DevOps-]evolution firms stuck in the middle,” we wanted to get out a magnifying glass to better understand the cultural differences that make certain companies great and keep the rest from reaching peak DevOps adoption.

We hope you enjoy this topic, which covers a wide range of topics, including team organization principles, securing executive buy-in, diversity & inclusion, and various tips from each of the speakers’ companies. Enjoy and please engage with us to share your thoughts!
