Course description

Introduction to DevSecOps for Managers

"Introduction to DevSecOps for Managers" is being offered at an inflection point in society. It has never been more fundamental in understanding how to not only rapidly deliver software that accomplishes businesses and mission objectives, but to also do so securely. This requires a firm understanding of not only the technology, but the culture and processes as well. The course focuses on providing managers and leaders with the foundational knowledge required to lead digital organizations through their DevSecOps journey and transformation.

This course is designed for any software manager, including those both experienced and new to the field of software development, who is seeking to continuously improve their knowledge. The course was created specifically to serve a wide range of backgrounds, targeting both those with very little prior knowledge of DevSecOps, while also challenging those who have years of experience. No prior technical knowledge is assumed as part of this course, as it is intended to form or improve a foundation for any software leader.

The course starts off by discussing what DevSecOps is and why it is important. It then provides an overview of DevSecOps technologies and principles using a simple-to-follow “Tech like I’m 10” approach. Next, the course covers topics such as value stream management, platform as product, and engineering organization improvement, all driving towards defining Continuous Delivery and explaining why it is so foundational for any organization. The course also focuses on culture, metrics, cybersecurity, and agile contracting.
