DevOps – a cultural and professional IT movement focused on changing the mindset of how organizations function – will no doubt make a significant impact across many companies. In my companies, we have a portfolio of products that needs no downtime delivery. We want to apply DevOps, so as the scrum master, how can I contribute to the process?
As a Scrum Master you influence the development approach by coaching and advising.
Some areas you might want to consider coaching in are:
- The benefits of cross-skilling and having a t-shaped skills profile
- Treating infrastructure as code (such as including config in source control and testing it alongside the code)
- Encourage more training in the appropriate areas
- Evangalise about the benefits of having a joined up approach to development and operations
