DevOps requires a cultural shift in organizations that adopt it. Failing to successfully make the transition from waterfall, agile, lean, or other project management and general management philosophies can destroy a company. But the situation is not all doom and gloom.
The DevOps Enterprise Summit 2017 (November 13-15, 2017 at the Hilton Union Square in San Francisco) is described by the organizers as 'a conference for the leaders of large, complex organizations implementing DevOps principles and practices. The event programming emphasizes both evolving technical and architectural practices and the methods needed to lead widespread change efforts in large organizations.'
