It works, if the whole organization is make responsible
In slide 7, it's not just that people get comfortable doing things one way and hate to change. They learn how to do things one way, then realize what thin ice they may be on if they take responsibility for making things work right, regardless of what the issue may be. Much smarter, given the tasks that might be pawned off on them, to stick with what they know. It takes responsibility throughout the organization, not just a few flexible people taking on inordinate tasks and responsibility, for DevOps to work.

Lesson learnt
One important lesson I learnt from DevOps is the focus on improving product instead of simply doing Ops. During daily operation work, you found many things to improve. Instead of just closing the ticket, you need to think about how to fix the bug and improve the system as a whole.
