Change initiatives are challenging in any established company, but they are even more challenging to start in highly regulated industries. There are constant concerns around compliance and security. It’s very important to alleviate these concerns early and often. This was one component of my strategy.

It’s also important to build shared experiences with the leadership of your company, but how do you do this as a low-level DevOps engineer? It takes time and a lot of effort. It also takes a manager who sees the bigger picture. I’ll describe my journey in organizing the company around my vision, from the hatching of the vision with a core team to expanding and solidifying that vision with executive sponsorship.

I’ve learned a lot from this process, and want to help others with my learnings. I’ve pulled out some valuable concepts and principles to focus on, so the talk will be somewhat opinionated, but still encourage ideation in the audience. The audience will walk away with ideas to start their own change initiatives, no matter how big or small.
