Peter Nijenhuis
S0L1D Heroes, Netherlands

DevOps is one of my greatest passions. Guiding teams in the DevOps way of working, helping and facilitating them in achieving the ultimate goal of becoming a high performing team.

What I often see at companies, that they’re trying to adopt the DevOps way of working with a technical approach. They often start with automation. While automation is a huge aspect of DevOps, it isn’t the key to success. Mindset and behavior is in my opinion the key to success. Getting the right culture and a facilitating governance with its processes within the company. Only then you can be successful in adopting the DevOps way of working.

    The Mind Game

    Play INCREMENTUM! A Mind Game that lets you swing back and forth between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset. Do you dare to find the answer of the puzzle? Come and play!

    INCREMENTUM. A Mind Game that lets you swing back and forth between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset.

    This serious game has been developed bij Lasciva BV. A new company of two experienced DevOps coaches (Peter Nijenhuis and Mark Heistek).

    Peter and Mark have a growing annoyance of the misuse of the word DevOps. Today, everything is DevOps. DevOps engineers, DevOps managers, DevOps teams, DevOps coaches ;) and much more.

    DevOps is a mindset. It is about taking away the friction caused by working in silos. Key elements of DevOps are Culture, Automation, Lean Flow, Measurement and Sharing.

    Talk about Culture, then you talk about INCREMENTUM.

    Serious game INCREMENTUM is easy to play and simulates change. To be more specific. It simulates the 'U' you go through when you experience change.

    INCREMENTUM takes you out of the context of your work and creates a safe environment to experience a fixed and growth mindset. From there a link to your daily work or life can be made.

    You will play a short online version of the game to give the participants an experience of fixed and growth mindset. I will also talk about Theory U. The phases we go through during change.
