One of the root causes of systemic failure is not technological, but the problems us humans have when interacting with it. There are many reasons why this occurs, but the core principles are due to the complexity and lack of understanding of tooling and process.

The Government in the USA, and in particular the US Airforce, experiences this scenario more than most. Systems are hugely complex, and security mandates that there are different controls and reassurance covering all aspects of the system.

This talk looks at the ideas and implementation we had for our continuous journey. With continuous training and the help of HashiCorp tools, we are designing a way to break down the cultural and people problems, ensuring successful adoption, not rejection.
