You too can Take Action! – Key Takeaways from DevOps Foundation Certified Professionals

Taking action is one of the most necessary steps in effectuating life changes. However, as most of us know, sometimes it is very difficult to take that first step and commit to a desired achievement. When delivering DevOps/Agile/ITSM certification classes, I like to stress that as leaders we must inspire. And this is true because Inspiration leads to motivation and motivation triggers ACTION!

Although this is true, a recent Forbes article opened my mind to another way of looking at this. In this article Svetlana Whitener states that: “You don’t need to wait to feel inspired before you implement a new behavior. You can immediately begin by gathering your willpower (a strong self-control determination that allows you to do something difficult) and stop procrastinating.”

So whether you dig deep into your inner self and use will power or you are inspired by others, take action! Both motivation and will power are necessary. The bottom line is this: Digital Transformation is real and IT service providers must act.

All certification courses from the DevOps Campus at ITSM Academy strive to educate and at the same time inspire learners to use what they learn in very real and practical ways. Below are some examples of some very “Key Takeaways” that Engineers, Architects, and Business Leaders and ITSM professionals glean from DevOps Foundation Certification and training classes that motivated them to – Take Action!
  • I am a DevOps Leader in our company and I did not really know what DevOps was until I took this class. Before, it was all about the automation for me. Now I know it is so much more about shattering the silo’s and the Continuous Integration. Integrated teams, integrated testing, integrated QA & Test and more. DevOps is a professional and cultural movement and now I really am a part. I will take these tools and start looking at how we can shift left with Security, Availability, Resilience and Integrated Testing. I will stay CALM with my DevOps values, Culture, Automation, Lean, Measurable, and most of all Sharing (CALMS).
  • Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment were always the same thing to me. After this class I can see that we say we are doing Continuous Deployment but we really are automating for Continuous Delivery. I can now use the knowledge from this class to leverage where we are and start looking at how we can move into a true Continuous Deployment pipeline. No more deception. 
  • Getting my team level set on the terms and concepts was very key. DevOps and what it is really comprised of was subjective. It is difficult to drive a digital transformation when everybody has a subjective viewpoint of what it is we are striving for. Getting level set with DevOps FND certification and training allows us to set, drive and communicate a vision and a strategy that is real and doable.
