Businesses are having difficulty adopting and scaling DevOps because it’s a multi-layered, human-centric, technology-enabled endeavor that is instead approached through a singular-layer, technology-centric lens. Moreover, the layers are not clearly defined in a way that enables businesses to design an effective strategy given their current skill makeup and organization configuration.
DevOps GOLD provides a systematic framework for thinking through the various drivers of successful DevOps implementations. It recognizes DevOps adoption is comprised of multiple layers containing tasks/outcomes that can happen in serial or parallel. GOLD also recognizes DevOps adoption must be considered through multiple lenses within the organization, each with its own incentives for success.
