Get Your Goals Right

In the same way that DevOps involves more than just the development group, continuous deployment isn't just about coding. Design, infrastructure operations, testing, and deployment teams have to be on board and working together if continuous delivery is going to occur, much less succeed.
The first step in having everyone work together is having a shared understanding of why continuous deployment is important to the organization. Once you know why continuous deployment is important, you can set every group to determining how they're going to contribute to the successful implementation of the process. Setting rational goals starts with a clear understanding of why you're going to the trouble -- and the benefits you want to achieve in order to consider the transition a success.
