Prior to becoming an analyst, Bola Rotibi was a process engineer and programmer. We speak to Bola about how to deliver DevOps, stop the blame culture, and move to an empowered model. We learn:

  • How the principles behind DevOps need to be recast to fit today’s dynamic environments
  • The need for a move from quick-fix culture, towards good planning and architecture
  • The importance of measuring meaningful, business-focused value
  • How to scale innovation through proof of concepts, extracting learning based on the organization’s needs.

Above all, we learn the role of discipline as the gateway to sustainable innovation. This requires a hub-and-spoke approach in which a central body devolves power, to allow innovation to happen in small, scalable ways.
