Gene Kim articulates: “The Third Way (of DevOps) is about creating a culture that fosters two things: continual experimentation, taking risks and learning from failure; and understanding that repetition and practice is the prerequisite to mastery.”

Yet, as DevOps is getting popular traction, what we experience are misinterpretations (the DevOps team or DevOps Person), land-grabs by methods sellers or asking big consultancies to roll it out, instead of trusting seasoned and experienced practitioners.

They’re changing work environments and relocate people routinely into new teams or locations. Solutions are all about reengineering work flows, not about meeting workers’ needs. We’re replacing old constraints with new ones and the transformation grinds to a halt.

The Third Way asks us to reflect on our beliefs and go off piste to look for ideas to improve. We do little to understand the social impact when we aim to transform our organisation. We ask the organisation to adapt towards our engineering excellence and resist to adapt ourselves to the needs of the organisation.

How do we gain situational awareness of the social network in which we do work and how does it help DevOps? I will present experiences applying these ideas.
