Project Management: from Stone Age to DevOps


The DevOps movement is gradually changing IT organisations. Project managers are often forgotten, but they also need to change. Are project managers ready for the DevOps change?

The wall between Dev and Ops has now broken thanks to DevOps, but there are other walls needed to be broken. One of them is between developers and project managers, making the communication and understanding between them difficult. We need to break this wall as the project manager needs to work alongside the DevOps team in order to help the company to change the old mindset and working together sharing goals and responsibilities.

Agenda:

  • - Project Management Archaeology: Stone Age This part is about project management and project delivery before Agile. Explaining the mindset and interactions between team members.
  • - Project Management Archaeology: Renaissance On this part Agile arrived to project management and project delivery, changing interactions within the team and making people to educate and learn more about other ways of delivering projects.
  • - Project Management in the DevOps Era The next step after agile, how DevOps is changing the mindset and the place/tasks of project managers on this time.
  • - Wrapping up
