Leaders must have confidence in their software organizations' ability to experiment, fail, recover from failure and then pivot quickly to deliver needed results. Software Delivery Management (SDM) provides a framework, strategy and discipline to benchmark progress, track and manage resources and ultimately deliver results ...

DevOps is something that happens in pockets. Smaller, newer businesses have the benefit of a lack of scale, which means things can happen fast out of the gate. Keeping things small, against all odds, is a route to success: on one software project I was involved in, with hundreds of developers, I wished I could take ten of the people involved and hide them away.
