  • A must have for anyone involved in managing IT work

    This books should be mandatory reading for anyone involved in managing IT work. Unlike many other works in this space, the Phoenix project is also a fast paced enjoyable read. It borrows a similar format as Patrick Lencioni's "5 Dysfunctions of a Team" where the strategies and learnings are based in a story of a struggling technical company. The concepts are well laid out and build on each other nicely. A really enjoyable read

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Company leaps from dysfunctional 1995 to competent

    Basically, this is a story of dysfunctional company making the leap from late 1990s dysfunctional to 2010 competent. If you're not aware of lean, kanban, or devops, then this book is probably worth the read. However, you're going to have to get through it first. Imagine the most toxic co-worker you've ever worked with, imagine how they think, now imagine a whole company full of people who think like that. Basically, everybody sees everybody else as a loser, idiot, or jerk. There's also a generally negative feeling towards development and even security that I found very difficult to stomach. And the mentor is a jerk. If you can make it to chapter 8, then they start getting into workflow and the reader begins getting value. If you're on the business side, this is probably definitely worth a look. It's a very easy to follow look at modern processes for systems delivery. If you're in tech, you can probably do better with another book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
