Measure & assess performance
Based on data inputs, performance metric values in scope are determined, and performance gaps are highlighted. These gaps may be detected in the area of responsibility of service delivery teams themselves. They may also relate to responsibilities of supplying roles in the organization, such as product owner (PO), project management (PM), or architects. Assessment may be extended by comparison with benchmarks of similar software development organizations.
Explore scenarios for improvement
Different scenarios for improvement are simulated, in order to deepen the shared understanding of what may practically and feasibly be achieved. This is based on a model that fundamentally captures influence relationships between the various factors that influence performance in the Agile DevOps domain. Priorities for improvement are determined, based on resulting insights and based on consensus.
A roadmap for improvement is developed, following the priorities as established above. This includes the specification of which practices to implement in the organization, by whom, and when. This is based on a model that fundamentally captures collaboration relationships and processes, with their factors that influence performance, in the Agile DevOps domain. The model also serves as guided knowledge base for relevant associated practices, at various levels of maturity, in multiple dimensions. Multiple roles in the organization may get involved in the improvement project, based on this.
The improvement roadmap will be implemented step by step. Service delivery teams, and other roles involved, will be mentored to implement new practices. According to the iterative nature of the project, performance is measured in order to evaluate the impact of changes. From here, iteratively, the set of metrics in scope, as well as objectives as set, may be finetuned. Next opportunities for improvement maybe discovered, and/or next roadmap steps may be implemented.
The VDMbee Agile DevOps acceleration service, as outlined above, can be delivered via one or multiple engagements. The service can be delivered recurrently, for as long as needed or wanted. Typically, the first engagement leads to first performance gains. It can be followed by a period of monitoring. On-demand, or at agreed intervals, VDMbee can be involved for follow-on engagements.
