The consequences of attempting to adopt Agile and DevOps without having a clear grasp of the foundations that Agile and DevOps are built on will in almost all cases lead to failure. How do we know this? The 2017 DevOps survey by Gartner2017 DevOps survey by Gartner showed that 90% of organizations who have attempted the adoption of DevOps without first addressing their culture will fail in their attempts. The reality of this is that the number of failures is probably higher than 90%, a few of the organizations in the 10% success category if viewed very closely have probably started making cultural changes and adopted a number of crucial Agile and DevOps practices, but in reality, are still walking a thin line between success and failure. Putting this in simpler terms, we can look at adopting Agile and DevOps as eating at a buffet restaurant. It would be like the organization going through the buffet line and selecting helpings of all the foods they like, but when they get to the fruit and vegetable section they turn up their nose. We all know what happens when we eat a diet without any fruits or vegetables, we tend to become sluggish, overweight and unhealthy, this is in a sense what has happened to the culture of many organizations who have attempted Agile or DevOps.
