them iteratively. Is possible to improve
productivity of your team step by step
Automation: Any manual action is likely to
be executed with errors. Trust machines to
run your processes. Automate your
processes to be executed more reliable

self-service across your test and
production environment, reduce defects in
deployments and create a consistency of
the whole environment.
Measure: to measure your processes is
the first step to improve them. Base your
decisions in data, rather than instinct.
Define your own key indicators for your
business goals and base your continuous
improvement on improve those KPIs.

what areas need to be improved, defining

problemas across teams, or communities
