Enterprise Readiness Assessment
Before setting a business transformation plan for the future, you must have clarity on the goals and ability of organizations to innovate and apply that to scale. We help you will receive a readiness assessment to determine your current DevOps fluency and come up with the areas of improvement.
If this is done as a part of DevOps Transformation, we effectively utilize various tools to come up with the assessment and recommendations. The multiple dimensions of assessment include;
- Behaviour & Culture
- People & Processes
- Team Maturity
- Way of working assessment
- Tools usage
- Review of current practices
We do the evaluation using a combination of individual and group interviews, self-assessment through templates, observing the current way of working and immersive workshops
Enterprise Transformation Roadmap
We firmly believe that each organization is unique and there’s no cookie-cutter approach to the transformation. Their transformation journey depends on their past mission, current constraints, and future vision.
We can help you create the transformation roadmap for your organization. The Enterprise Readiness Assessment forms an input for this.
We understand that the roadmap is not in stone. It will consist of several learning cycles followed by a reflection upon the outcomes that will help course-correct. This is how the roadmap is structured, to add reflection points by intention.
We also help you to create, tool and enable the transformation team of change agents that will execute the transformation program
Leadership Development, Mentoring and Coaching
Every enterprise, irrespective of where they are on their DevOps transformation journey, understand the importance of effective leadership for successful transformation.
Here, the leaders, not only have to form, bless and enable a high-performing transformation team, they have to take part in the journey and lead from the front.
More likely than not, the leaders would themselves have to undergo a personal transformation to be ready to lead the enterprise successfully by learning and exhibiting new behaviours.
We can help your leaders with our immersive personal transformation programs for leaders. It consists of a combination of learning methods – from book reading and analysis to deep self-reflection, multiple simulations and case studies and continuous coaching and mentoring.
Value Stream Mapping and Recommendations
To maximize the benefits from DevOps adoption, teams need to be organized around the value being delivered by the enterprise or part of the enterprise that is adopting DevOps. Often, we find that organizations, due to historical reasons, have optimized their operations keeping a few internal parameters or constraints in mind.
We can help you if you are struggling with the way you are organized.
The intervention may result in a more matrixes structure where people come together to work and deliver value, or your enterprise may want to go all the way and re-organized themselves into the various value streams, or a new Target Operating model with Organizational Design
We can help you on this journey by recommending the right path for you.
Offshore Organization Assessment and Recommendation
The increase in DevOps adoption across all industries has compelled global organizations to rethink how they work with distributed teams across time zones, locations and partners and vendors. Since DevOps is an intrusive change for all, the solution cannot be merely redefining the way of working for the teams.
We specialize in working with organizations to help with an DevOps adoption approach that is inclusive of their Captive teams and virtual teams from their offshore partners. In many cases, we have seen enterprises approaching us specifically to bring in their other, distributed teams into the DevOps transformation that is already underway in the parent organization.
We look at the challenges holistically and suggest the right approach for the enterprises.
We also work with the offshore components of organizations to:
- Make them DevOps-ready
- Setup distributed DevOps practices for them
- Setup DevOps practices in Multi-vendor scenario successfully
- Help adopt DevOps in the current development and operations team
A natural progression in the Enterprise Agility journey is to move towards DevOps adoption. We can help you assess your current DevOps maturity and recommend the way forward with the help of right DevOps tools. This would include looking at your enterprise’s Agile fluency, automation status, Deployment sophistication, Rollback policies, and processes and the team’s maturity and readiness. Not to forget our capability in DevOps training courses customized and delivered at your premises.
DevOps Strategy and Roadmap
It is logical to follow the assessment with the strategy to move towards an organization’s DevOps vision. Our DevOps Architect helps you with this strategy and roadmap. Our recommendation will include the gaps in the current way of working, how to fulfill those gaps, and suggestions around the appropriate interventions required to reach DevOps maturity.
