Lean DevOps Book

Deliver target outcomes  more effectively

As service stacks grow more complex, meeting customer expectations for speed, consistency, reliability, security, privacy, and value becomes ever tougher. Layering on new cloud technologies, architectural approaches, or methodologies can aggravate the problem by widening the gap between what delivery teams think they’re delivering and what the customers actually experience.

Lean DevOps helps you escape this spiral, reverse bad habits, and regain the situational awareness you need to deliver the right services in the right way.


Learn to See What Matters

Delivery success counts on making effective decisions at the right time. Doing so takes more than having the latest tools or following a particular process. It requires making sure that everyone has the right level of awareness and context to make effective decisions toward a shared objective.

Lean DevOps shows you how to build a delivery ecosystem that breaks down the barriers that so often cause teams to sub-optimize and thereby lose sight of the larger perspective.
