-Working to understand barriers to progress and knocking them down.
-Designing training opportunities (e.g. lunch and learns, skill builders)
-Designing and develop internal tools to help accelerate improvements.
-Hosting evangelism sessions, including things like DevSecOps roadshows.
Day-to-day, much of position's time will be spent working to understand the unique needs of each IT team, and then encouraging, facilitating, and supporting those teams' improvement efforts from a technical perspective.
