    Static designs and monolithic structures are brittle and prone to failure. How can we progress beyond them? By understanding the nature of our challenges and applying the right tools at the right time. This talk will describe how to use evolutionary principles to foster changes in your architecture and infrastructure so that you can create antifragile systems.

    Nassim Nicholas Taleb spoke to these ideas in “Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder.” Join us as we describe how we can:

    • Move beyond planning for known failure modes and instead develop antifragile systems that are safe-to-fail in unanticipated ways.
    • Leverage the Cynefin framework and its 5 sense-making domains to better frame problems and drive action.
    • Employ microservice architectures to make the variability of our environments work for us, not against us.
    • Gain knowledge more rapidly through multiple parallel experiments.

    As the adoption of Agile DevOps has been steadily growing over the years, many organizations have been taking a proactive approach to prepare for the changes needed for success.  This means building our people and organizations with the skills and resources they need to be successful and working with our customers and users for improved collaboration to enable transparency. We have worked to provide our teams with the tools and infrastructure to enable continuous flow of value.

    What do legacy organizations need to transform from Horses into Unicorns? Are there constraints in government programs not regularly seen in commercial industry? Are there commonalities across these organizations that others can learn from to support this journey? 

    Suzette Johnson and Robin Yeman are both leading large Agile transformations at different companies with growing implementations of DevOps on large and small scaled programs. While there is not a single pattern to move large legacy organizations to DevOps, it’s amazing the similarities found across two different companies. Through multiple collaboration opportunities they have found similar effective practices and lessons learned.  Join Robin and Suzette as they provide an interactive discussion around the proven practices for large scale transformation, the challenges they have experienced, and the amazing similarities of two Agile DevOps journeys. Their discussion focuses on activities that have been implemented to cultivate teams and build the necessary skills for this transition, to build the infrastructure that enables a DevOps environment, to improve the value stream and extend the mindset of change across the organization, and ways to measure success.

     Specific techniques: Cultivating teams, Building the infrastructure, Change in practices across the value stream/organization, Measures of Success

     Metrics: Reduced Cycle time for Feature delivery; Reduced Mean Time to Repair; Increase in test automation with improved quality; increased delivery of value, Increased transparency for stakeholders
