Helping organizations establish resilient software supply chains.

disruptiveOps’ mission is to ensure software solutions do not disrupt your operations.

We are a trusted advisor to secure software supply chains for governments, quasi-government organizations, and private industry. We provide immediate improvement and peace of mind to executive leadership and key stakeholders with an operational framework that reduces risk and cost while increasing agility to deliver more capabilities and services more quickly.

disruptiveOps helps customers with digital transformations because we focus on operational continuity resiliency and risk management, NOT Agile frameworks.

Why Digital Transformations Fail

84% of digital transformations fail because of three (3) core reasons; lack of goals, lack of focus on what matters most, and true expertise to help the organization transform themselves.

The commoditization of Agile, and especially the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), is providing organizations with the false hope that they can deliver software faster, cheaper, and better. Instead, organizations are unnecessarily increasing their overhead with people, processes, and tools while producing insecure and non-production worthy code.

Agile is simply principles & value, not a framework, method, or framework. Agile is an enabler to communicate not how to work. #StopAgileCommoditization

Why Our Digital Transformations Succeed

Our customers are successful because our pragmatic approach is focused on operational continuity achieved by risk management and building-in resiliency during their engineering efforts.  We believe cybersecurity must be prevent-driven not incident-driven.

Research has shown that organizations focusing on cybersecurity in conjunction with their business objectives are nearly 20% more efficient.  This increase in delivery has also proven to increase customer satisfaction and build trust both internally and externally.

Introducing the Digital Continuity Framework (DCF)

The DCF was specifically designed to protect the United States Critical Infrastructure as traditional approaches to harden software supply chains actually increases risk, time to repair, and cost.

While software supply chains are large and complex, the DCF is not.  The DCF contains only 3 Key Elements & 6 Key Activities.  However, to truly accelerate into a resiliency-based culture, we recommend 4 additional artifacts and 5 activities.

Unlike traditional transformations, the DCF does not prescribe how teams operate.  High-performing teams are self-managing and thus need to operate in a manner that considers their size, maturity, type & complexity of work, and dependencies.

Key Elements

A codified list of all physical or virtual assets that are part of a software solution.

A centralized backlog of efforts the organization needs to establish and maintain software resiliency.

A centralized capability to provide visibility of the organizations’ risk posture.

Key Activities

The DCF contains just six (6) key activities to continually identify and address vulnerabilities and weaknesses. 


The first 4 activities are required as they involve knowing what resources to validate, gathering metadata of statues, planning what to address, and finally executing on the plan.


The last two (2) will allow your organization to become more resilient more quickly with just a little more investment in understanding how you work and building consensus of what processes or data to improve..

Meaningful Certifications

While use of DCF and all its supportive materials & images are free to use, we highly suggest attaining certification to validate knowledge of core concepts.  Those who wish to train others can attain an additional certification that demonstrates the ability to facilitate the necessary training & workshops to others.

Both certifications are low-cost high-impact learning journeys usable within any organization.
