Join this workshop to experience one of the most unusual DevOps transformations – with Lego and Chocolate simulation game. Visualize common process bottlenecks and observe a “wall of confusion” between development teams and IT operations. Use LEGO blocks and chocolate candies to experiment with process improvements. Transition to continuous delivery of value, amplify feedback loop and build up T-shaped skills in your team. Inspired by ideas from “The Phoenix Project” and “The Goal", this workshop helps participants at all levels to clearly experience the benefits of DevOps culture.

Learning Outcomes:
  • 1. Understand and learn to address a common misalignment of goals of the 3 major groups in product development.
  • 2. Experiment with decoupling of a Sprint (as a planning unit) from a Release (as a deployment unit) by minimizing the batch sizes, increasing frequency of releases, amplifying feedback loop and moving away from cyclical delivery towards continuous flow of value.
  • 3. Understand how widening individual skills and working together with Operations and Security members can have a positive impact on the team’s ability to eliminate the constraints and pursue the improvement of the overall process.
