Welcome to the Conversations with Puppet Labs podcast. We'll be talking with folks in the industry about a variety of topics that affect IT operations.
Over the next few weeks, we'll focus on what it means to be a change agent in your organization, and how ops can influence positive change. We'll explore the challenges and roadblocks you might come across when trying to implement change, and we'll dive into some of the technical aspects of implementing IT automation and other DevOps practices.
We're kicking things off with Gene Kim, author of The Phoenix Project and founder of the DevOps Enterprise Summit. Listen as Gene describes what it means to be a change agent and some of the challenges you may face, such as:
- Doing automated testing right (or at all)
- Convincing leadership to take risks with you
- Getting security and compliance on board
