Steve Pereira, Toronto's DevOps Transformation Expert

I've been obsessed with process, optimization and visual learning my whole life. When I discovered Value Stream Mapping during my stint in university I recognized it as what I'd been doing for years, and validated what a huge opportunity there was for visual tools to boost organizations. Paired with DevOps Transformation you get an incredible force for continuous improvement.
