The adoption of DevOps practices is proceeding apace. Organizations are focused on how to implement DevOps capabilities across teams and how to scale DevOps across the enterprise. But an important aspect to any scaled transformation journey is assessing a team’s or organization’s capabilities along the way.
The DevOps Institute SKILup Assessment within an individual, team, or company as a whole, serves many purposes. Perhaps most important, it helps align people with a long-term vision for the company—and avoid making critical mistakes.
An assessment also baselines the current state of DevOps capabilities, which is critical for measuring and identifying the next target state of improvement. It helps individuals and teams devise experiments to move between states, and highlights local discoveries to make global improvements.
