The Blamer

Learn more about how DevOps teams must adopt a more agile development process, working in parallel instead of waiting on other teams to finish their components or for resources to become available, brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.

I have a long list of people I like to blame for the dysfunction I see in organisations. I blame Managers, Directors, CEO’s, Testers, Salesmen, Recruiters, Architects, IT Engineers, Customers, Business Analyst, Help Desk, HR, Finance, Consultants and Coaches. I blame those with more experience and those just starting. I blame the courageous and the scared. I blame my friends, my foes and my family. I blame those I understand and those I don’t. I am expert in everyone else’s problems.

I blame others and they blame me. The more difficult the problem, the more I need the help of others, the more I blame others and push them away. I fear the problem becoming mine. I can’t fix the problem alone, I might get it wrong. If I look closer at the problem it might be bigger than I thought. The problem might turn out to be down to something I did. Others might blame me. I might look incompetent. I might be embarrassed. I might lose my job.

I blame others to protect myself. I blame others so I don’t have to think. I am the blamer and the blamed. I live in fear.
