When we hear about DevOps these days, it is usually immediately followed by terms like, automation, testing, deployment. These are the tools, processes and artifacts that teams use to transform their organizations, but what are the underlying fundamental principles behind effective DevOps?

In our haste to adopt these ideas, have we lost track of these underlying principles and assumptions that ground DevOps? In order to effectively apply the fundamentals, we need to make explicit these assumptions, and reasonably bound the applicability of the methods and processes we use.

This exploratory discussion invites participants to explore, reground and bound the applicability of DevOps by investigating the ideas of flow. We’ll compare and contrast the ideas of the foundational flow thinkers, Henry Ford and Taiichi Ohno, in order to illuminate these principles and show how changing contexts inform and shape assumptions about systemic organizational design.
