Program Overview

The DASA DevOps Leader program is developed around DASA’s research on state of the art and state of the practice examples on why DevOps transformations fail or succeed. It is crucial for DevOps adoption to have a DevOps Leader to assist in developing, influencing, implementing, or motivating a cultural transformation. 

As a DASA DevOps Leader™, you will practise leadership values alongside like-minded DevOps leaders and also lead, drive, and support a successful DevOps transformation in practice. 

In this course, our certified trainers will introduce you to state-of-the-art and practical examples as well as key notions and principles that will inspire and challenge you to transform your opinion into useful strategies.

DASA DevOps Leader certification™ will examine the essential role of CIO's in leading, shaping and managing the digital business and provide an understanding of how modern enterprise architecture is the best opportunity for CIO’s to manage digital transformation, with a constant focus on creating value. It will also examine how CIO’s can use technology to change long-standing revenue models and operational structures across business functions.

This training by Uptut will equip you with the skills necessary to overcome obstacles in cultural transformation, think critically about the best leadership techniques and implement them in your organisation.
