DevOps is the convergence of existing IT best practices from ITIL®, Lean, Agile, and Scrum into a development and operations approach that supports automation and continuous delivery. Described as more of a mindset than a framework, DevOps aims to blur the lines between the existing IT siloes to create a more collaborative relationship between Dev and Ops allowing organizations to create greater business value with more streamlined processes, faster deployments, and more successful releases.

To guide IT practitioners on their DevOps journey, Pink Elephant offers a comprehensive DevOps portfolio of courses that provides an all-encompassing look at the DevOps framework and role-based certification courses, specific to the roles within DevOps.

Pink’s DevOps portfolio includes:

  • DevOps Essentials – This certification course, provides the foundational knowledge and a new and unique perspective of DevOps through the ‘Full Stack’ of culture, practices, and automation.
  • DevOps Leadership – The DevOps Leadership certification course builds on the learnings from the DevOps Essentials certification course with a leadership perspective on the challenges inherent in implementing DevOps. These challenges, first introduced in the ‘Full Stack’ approach, span the creation and acceptance of new organizational culture, new principles, and processes, and moving the enterprise toward a new model for success.
  • NEW! DevOps Engineer – The DevOps Engineer certification course provides detailed knowledge about the key skills and tools necessary for today’s DevOps Engineer.

The DevOps Leadership certification course, designed by Pink Elephant’s expert leadership consultants, builds on the learnings from the DevOps Essentials™ certification course which introduced the ‘Full Stack’ approach to DevOps, 15 essential practices and a DevOps Assessment tool – all unique to the industry!

A key issue today is that many organizations are uncertain of how to take the next steps to realize the full business benefits of a DevOps transformation. While their teams agree that change is necessary to remain competitive and support business objectives, most organizations are struggling with how to move the dial on their DevOps initiatives all the way up to full adoption.

We show you how to do it!

Pink’s DevOps Leadership certification course is different because it provides a true business- focused approach and not the more operational view provided by competitors’ courses.

Another major differentiator is that this DevOps Leadership course will introduce Pink Elephant’s 20/20 Integrated Change Management Model, an innovative approach to help leaders and organizations clearly see the complete path to a successful DevOps transformation.

Step-by-step, attendees are taken through the model to understand how to lead the implementation of the 15 essential practices of DevOps learned during the DevOps Essentials course, and how to establish a culture of collaboration and effectively manage the Full Stack.

Attendees will also leverage the DevOps assessment tool first introduced in DevOps Essentials, to assess the maturity of their current DevOps journey and based on their future vision, design and implement a customized roadmap to lead cross-functional teams focused on innovation and collaboration to drive business value.


Upon successful completion of DevOps Leadership certification course, you will understand:

  • The challenges and solution options for implementing the 15 DevOps practices including the Full Stack of DevOps culture, practices and automation at your organization
  • The major phases of a DevOps transformation using Pink’s 20/20 Integrated Change Management Model
  • How to establish, lead, support and nurture cross-functional teams
  • How to establish a culture of engagement and collaboration
  • How to lead teams focused on innovation
  • How to determine a course of action for continuous deployment based on analysis of fully automated and shared tool chain / digital backbone
  • How Leaders leverage the Three Ways to take advantage of Lean, Agile and DevOps practices to improve flow, feedback and experimentation
  • How to plan a phased approach to automation, including code and artifact management, orchestration and monitoring, testing, configuration, provisioning, deployment, ticketing and dashboard
  • How to select the correct service and project management approach from within the enterprise portfolio of practices
  • How Leaders can align Agile teams with the overall focus and strategic intent of the organization

This advanced level course is designed for anyone in IT Service Management, Operations or Software Development with responsibility for transforming, establishing and sustaining the ‘Full Stack’ of DevOps culture, practices and automation.
