Yesterday i was asked if i know what Dev Ops is … and i vaguely remembered i worked with it in cooperation with Fujitsu some years ago. My recollection was that it might had been a program for change-management. I was totally wrong .. or was i ?.
After checking i found out it is about change-management but also developing .. but its not a program, it is more a structure for how to work.
So .. this got me thinking a bit ..
Now when i am player on the one man consultant market it will be totally impossible to keep the methods and education bit up to date. I done the lean, the itil and the scrum .. right down to the flower power stuff in the 80´s when you learned how to juggle colored balls and smile at different colored lamps… yes … the early days of education in project managing was dependent on what you smoked .. or rather what the founder of the strategy smoked. All of those with different names and adopted by multinational companys to get validation.
My thinking is … Different methods but very much similar in the backbone, its like Microsoft releasing new office suites .. put all menus in a bowl… shake .. compile .. release .. get paid.
Well .. Thats quite harsh .. of course they improve with time as everything 🙂
