Pyramid Discussion: DevOps Adoption in Large, Slow Organizations

Gene Gotimer

Are you in a large, plodding enterprise that's beginning, in the midst of, or considering a move toward DevOps? Unsure how or even if it will work, but know you have to make a move anyway? Do you want to hear from your peers about how they've managed so far? A pyramid discussion starts as a series of one-on-one conversations between the participants. After each pair hashes out their thoughts with each other, they join another couple to refine their points and hear pros and cons. After a while, those four join with four more, and so on until there is only one discussion, with everyone sharing and discussing. All attendees will get a chance to have their ideas and experiences heard while building on the thoughts and experiences of others. Even if you aren't ready to take over the discussion in a room of peers, you can proceed through the pyramid of smaller debates to get answers to your questions and hear how others are bringing DevOps to a large, slow organization.
