mini-review: The Phoenix Project

A novel about how to implement a DevOps culture and organisation. The protagonist is confronted with recognizable IT problems and obviously solves them 🙂

The good: Written as a novel and as a tribute to Goldrath’s famous ‘The Goal’. This helps you identify which aspects of Lean will benefit IT, Software development and service management (using DevOps as end goal to implement)

The bad: Many of the people in the book talk the exact same way: It’s easy to loose track of who’s saying what because of that. Characters have little to no development when the story progresses.

The verdict: So? is it any good? absolutely! Great book, not a great novel. get a copy here:
