DevOpsImprovement Game – Maximise business value without ignoring operational responsibilities

DevOps teams have to balance their work between three types of tasks. Development, Operational tasks and Improvements. Many DevOps teams (and that includes the PO) are struggling with balancing between the three types of work. Often Ops work uses up much of the time reducing the adaptivity of the business, while other teams focus heavily on new features and create too much technical debt.

To get a feel about this challenge we created a serious game, called the DevOpsImprovement Game. In this game teams experience how to have a maximum of business value in a sustainable way without ignoring operational responsibilities.

I have posted some impressions of the game before, but I proudly present DevOpsImprovement- The Video. 

Thanks Jana, Philip, Karlijn and Thomas for sharing your impression of the game
