Free book: "Expanding Pockets of Greatness"

Companies don't make their "DevOps transformation" over night. Usually there is a small team that adopts devops practices and then, after proving their success, the practices spread throughout the company horizontally. However sometimes their success becomes an island. There is no momentum and the better practices fail to expand around the company.

Growing devops practices within a company is not easy. It is especially difficult when it does not have management support, or the advocate does not executive authority. Some techniques for building momentum work, others do not.

Earlier this year Josh Atwell, Carmen DeArdo, Jeff Gallimore, and myself sat down to write a list of techniques we've seen succeed. No theory. No hyperbole. No fluff. We wanted to write down what we've seen work so that other people can copy these simple but effective techniques. This is a book for people in the trenches, not executives.

We realized that the list didn't need to be long nor did it need to be exhaustive. There are 2-3 that are simple, powerful, and almost always work. This didn't need to be an encyclopedia!

The result of this list is a new 14-page free book from IT Revolution called Expanding Pockets of Greatness: Spreading DevOps Horizontally in Your Organization.

The book is now available online for free. It's only 14 pages (10 if you skip the cover and front-matter). We wrote it in a day. You can read it in an hour:

Title:

Expanding Pockets of Greatness: Spreading DevOps Horizontally in Your Organization

Description:

Here you are: There are a few pockets of DevOps in your organization, but you are a long way from achieving a total DevOps transformation.

How do you build momentum and go from a few islands of DevOps goodness to a tipping point where the entire organization embraces common DevOps methods?

This paper is about the techniques others have used to build momentum to spread DevOps horizontally across an organization. The techniques fall in four categories: sharing, communicating, standardizing, and empowering new leaders.

You're not alone. DevOps is out there in your organization. We want to help you find it and scale it.
