devops-adoption-cover-finalTeams that excel do so not just because they have the best members, the best tools, the best training, the best processes, or even the best leaders and coaches. They excel because they, as a team, have all of the above, but also know what to do when they face various situations and challenges. They have a playbook of potential solutions or ‘plays’ for a variety of scenarios.

In the same way, IT organizations need plays to execute. For day-to-day application delivery and operations, these so-called plays are captured in their development, delivery, and operational processes.

He captures a set of proven, repeatable ‘plays’ for adopting DevOps at enterprise scale and helping organizations achieve their business goals by balancing the needs for speed, agility, quality, optimization and innovation.
