In 2009 Patrick Debois coined the term DevOps at a Velocity event in Belgium. 12 years later there have been countless books to describe this cooperation between development and operations to deliver capability rapidly to the user. We further have extended that term into Industrial DevOps to account for complex system of systems which include hardware, firmware, and software. Many of the practices such as small batch sizes, limit work in progress, and organizing around value are not new. The benefits of these practices in quality, schedule, cost, transparency, value are undisputed facts that have been shown repeatedly in periodicals such as the DORA report. The question is if the ideas are not new and the benefits are proven why is it so difficult for organizations to move to DevOps and almost impossible to move to Industrial DevOps.

Robin Yeman, Chief Technical Officer at Catalyst Campus and Suzette Johnson Senior Northrop Grumman Fellow will walk through the common barriers to adoption they see in these two large scale companies as well as invite the audience to participate in potential root causes of these barriers. The barriers we will discuss are Organizational Structure, Psychological Safety, Access to Common Language, Understanding the Value Stream, Lack of Trust, Access to patterns to break down systems, and exclusive over inclusive behaviors. In this session you will not only hear stories of programs who are experiencing these barriers you will have the opportunity to collaborate on solutions.
