DevOps is a cultural change for team members. However it is often forgotten that management concepts throughout the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) must also change. Organization level adoption of DevOps is required in order to support the process of culture change. Processes required to support DevOps should be divided into Organisational and Individual responsibilities. Whilst the scope of responsibility and level of management support will vary depending on the maturity of adoption of the DevOps process there are many structures which can be put into place to support the DevOps transition.

In this talk use cases are presented to illustrate best practice for management of the DevOps process. In addition management processes are described with particular reference to how they change as a result of DevOps. Finally, the talk will outline the impact standards on the management process including that of the upcoming IEEE P2675 Standard.

Learning Outcomes:
The aims of this talk are:
  •  To focus the understanding of all members of the organisation as to the key role of management in supporting DevOps
  • To discuss organizational change and to increase management buy-in to DevOps.
  • To present best practice for the support of DevOps from a management perspective
