Inhaltsangabe

Five years after this sleeper hit took on the world of IT and flipped it on its head, the fifth anniversary edition of The Phoenix Project continues to guide IT in the DevOps revolution. In this newly updated and expanded edition of the best-selling The Phoenix Project, co-author Gene Kim includes a new afterword and a deeper delve into the Three Ways as described in The DevOps Handbook.

Bill, an IT manager at Parts Unlimited, has been tasked with taking on a project critical to the future of the business, code named Phoenix Project. But the project is massively over budget and behind schedule. The CEO demands Bill must fix the mess in 90 days, or else Bill’s entire department will be outsourced.

With the help of a prospective board member and his mysterious philosophy of the Three Ways, Bill starts to see that IT work has more in common with manufacturing plant work than he ever imagined. With the clock ticking, Bill must organize work flow, streamline interdepartmental communications, and effectively serve the other business functions at Parts Unlimited.

In a fast-paced and entertaining style, three luminaries of the DevOps movement deliver a story that anyone who works in IT will recognize. Listeners will not only learn how to improve their own IT organizations, they’ll never view IT the same.

Must listen for anybody working with IT

This book covers all of the facts and learnings made by the successful corporate managers. It's written so nicely that you can actually give it your partner and they'll finally understand you.

Awesome

I listened and learned throughout every chapter. This book is a must for everyone who's working in dev or ops. There should've been some pointers for startups in there as well since Parts Unlimited is a large organization and it's not very trivial relating it to a startup.

A must read or listen to story for every IT manager!

A must read or must listen to story, for every IT manager from Teamlead to CIO/CTO and everyone in your organization, which doesn‘t understand a professional IT managers attitude and decissions! Reading it the second or third time enlightens again and again. You start understanding the complex interchange between Dev and Ops, understand how ITIL can be used without generating a process monster and how important processes, rules and standards in IT are for your business.

Delving right into business IT

Making the lives of IT folks better has been my favourite line.
There were some moments of anger and joy which kept me hooked to listen to the end.

It's not a Dale Carnegie book (which I think is pretty positive) for me but more of a story how it could be, but I suppose it could be understood as dogmatic too by some listeners.

The best parts are then when the main character is really competent and shows his good heart.

Guter Einblick in IT Abhängigkeiten

Auch wenn die Geschichte unealistisch ist und der allwissende Guru nervt.
Es ist eine nette lehrreiche Story.

For corporate souls

It's a book about the turnaround of a fictional IT project, called 'The Phoenix project'. That project is the last hope of a struggling company, but it's a mess. The story's hero gets a promotion to interim head of IT and turns the project around bit by bit by introducing ideas from Lean, Agile programming and TPS. Nice story arc. Not too kumbaya, but still on the edge of it.
