Their journey started by targeting key members in strategic roles within the organization. By working with these “champions” and bringing in well known players in the DevOps industry such as Gene Kim, author on DevOps principles and co-organizer of the DevOps Enterprise Summit, they were able to reinvent the way work was being managed. The creation of a transformation emergence center called the Dojo in the Minneapolis based headquarters and holding regular DevOps days provided engineering teams a way to become immersed in the DevOps movement. This passion extended into the Twin Cities community as meetups with the local developer community became a frequent occurrence. The financial commitment Target has made to this entire initiative shows the type of buy in that has been made from upper management. Heather and Ross did pose one final question to the audience in closing asking how others have effectively scaled DevOps across an enterprise. It will be interesting to hear how their journey has progressed next year if they are once again given the opportunity to share their story.
