Worse, it trains the team to only focus on evolutionary improvements and avoid looking for major breakthroughs.

No comments are allowed on his blog but you can sound off here.

Adopting a DevOps practice starts with understanding where you are in the implementation journey. Download the DevOps Transformation Roadmap, brought to you in partnership with Techtown Training
