While hard skills like continuous delivery and automated testing are important for practicing DevOps successfully, they are not the only factors that determine success. In many cases, people's mindset and willingness to embrace new practices and tools can also play a critical role. Fear of failure, fear of speaking up, motivation, and drive are all factors that can impact a team's ability to practice DevOps effectively.
