When you have acquired the required knowledge from this certification program, you will be able to:

  • Recollect key drivers for digital disruption, and understand the role DevOps plays in digital transformations, and the role DevOps Leaders can play in leading these transformations.
  • Distinguish contemporary leadership styles and practices and their pros and cons in a DevOps environment, and apply these to your organization and/or transformation.
  • Apply learnings to create a value case, ‘why,’ and scope of your DevOps transformations.
  • Understand key ingredients that organizations and leaders need to invest in for creating the right “smell of the place,” attracting and retaining talented employees, and developing a high-performance culture in your organization.
  • Analyze how to change traditional “Business vs. IT” operating models and governance structures to DevOps-supporting ones.
  • Analyze how best to optimize between team autonomy and ownership on the one hand, and architectural, technical, and organizational constraints on the other hand to manage quality, IT risk, and compliance in a DevOps organization.
  • Compare and contrast personal and organizational leadership patterns and anti-patterns in the various stages of a DevOps transformation and from various perspectives, such as people, process, and technology.
  • Lead a transformation within your organizational context with a focus on the key DASA DevOps principles, values, and practices.
  • Own your digital leadership journey throughout the transformation by continuously reflecting, learning, and (re)defining your leadership style.

The course is developed around DASA’s research on state of the art and state of the practice examples on why DevOps transformations fail or succeed. This research, bundled with a toolkit for kick-starting successful DevOps transformations, and calibrating the progress during the transformation phases, will dramatically increase your chances of success.

Basic familiarity with Agile, Scrum, and DevOps is beneficial. The course aims at (prospective) managers and leaders who have working experience or interest in taking a (formal or informal) leadership role to help teams and organizations to transform—grow, accelerate, increase their performance, and get more business value out of IT.


The DASA DevOps Leader assessment is based on building a transformation plan and presenting/defending this plan with two independent Assessors from the pool of highly experienced senior professionals who have led and been part of similar transformations before.

The plan that you develop will require you to apply the relevant frameworks that are covered during the course while building a well thought through transformation journey covering various dimensions of the transformation.

This assessment approach is grounded in the experiential learning and activity-based learning philosophies, focused on learning through reflection. Participants are encouraged to begin constructing their plan from week 1 of the program, while continuing to add to it during the entire 8-week course
