The focus on culture and sharing within Devops is very strong. More than ever we focus on teamwork. And teamdynamics. But what do those highly skilled and talented guys bring to the table? Can and will they make a difference? This talk will focus on the different aspects of high achievers. Who is delivering and who should you get rid of rather sooner than later. Famous start ups and leading Devops companies have written a lot about this topic. But so do old school top notch universities.

Combining those items and by adding our own flavour we believe we have come up with a recipe that will help any team that wants to practice devops beyond the borders of their own team.

Btw, What has Super Mario to do with this abstract?

Speaker:

Arjan Eriks, Schuberg Philis

Arjan works currently at Schuberg Philis, building clouds and growing devops. He spoke at Build a Cloud Day Amsterdam, Cloud Expo Santa Clara and Devops Amsterdam Summit. Before joining Schuberg Philis in 2005, Arjan worked at KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and was responsible for the Web Operations department. On top of his day job, Arjan also joined the group that organised Devopsdays Amsterdam. Outside irregular office hours, he's trying to become a long distance swimmer and above all to be super dad!

  • Teams are empowered to do whatever it takes to ensure a satisfied customerBy enforcing very strict hiring principles, we ensure that only highly professional experts…..blahblah
  • Like Joyent says: No hierarchy titles / no corporate ladders / no ratrace
  • If the team doesn’t accept the high achiever to be a team member, Mr Yellow might become a sinner (brilliant jerk / netflix). Sinner and Saints must be accepted and accomodated by the team in order to have a change of becoming high performers. This is both difficult and frustrating, but when it works the result is awesome.
  • Flying without a net page 42Purpose: Am I doing the right thing? Who are we and what are we supposed to do. What is our work? Personal purpose, company purpose. Do I connect to the organizational goalsIsolation: Look outside in and they feel they are not that good than anyone thinks. They feel in their own minds that they are excludedSignificance: They want to have constant reassurance that they are valued members of the organisation
  • If the team doesn’t accept the high achiever to be a team member, Mr Yellow might become a sinner (brilliant jerk / netflix)
  • The team does not tolerate. Remove the SINNER. The team tolerates, protect the team otherwise the team can be held hostage
