Description

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Excellent livre sur l'it et le mouvement devops.

Je recommande ce livre tres realiste, accessible et pertinent. Le format permet de montrer concretement le gap entre la vision IT en silo qu'on retrouve dans de nombreuses grandes organisations et la vision IT devops. Je regrette que le format audio ne permette pas d'acceder au texte et aux schemas. Faut-il acheter le livre deux fois pour l'avoir au complet?? Le format audio est parfait pour ce livre mais j'ai eu un peu de mal à suivre l'after word. Pour cela j'enleve une étoile.

Better than I thought

I am not an IT guy but a blue collar worker. There is a lot of understanding of processes that translate to everything in the business field.

I would recommend this to everyone who is in any business. It gives good examples of work and problem solving.

Take a chance and listen to, or read this book

Theory and Practice merged

Any additional comments?

I honestly didn't know a book like this could exist. The format really took me by surprise, but luckily, it was a pleasant one. Essentially it follows a newly promoted IT operations manager as he tries to improve the way the IT department works in his company while struggling with all the bureaucratic challenges that come with higher management positions. The really interesting part though, is that the book goes through a lot of sound theoretical concepts and we see how they're applied practically in the business.

It's still more of a novel in that it has a story and interesting characters that you see grow, which really are the driving force behind this book. The story and setting are relatively basic, but that's actually perfect since it's easier to relate to when there's all the theoretical content to get your head around. It's hard to be too critical of the characters, since again, they're mostly there to make a point and generalize the type of people that you encounter in organizations. That being said, there were some characters and events that were a little too unbelievable, which often broke the sense of realism and made you realize that you're reading a fictional story.

This kind of book would be a great source for students to study from since rarely have I seen theory and practice so closely linked in a book. Usually it's a ton of theory pushed down your throat with a sprinkling of real world examples thrown in. There's definitely some leaps and issues that would have to be addressed, but if anything, that would make it more interesting to disseminate. I'm just a bit worried now that someone reading this thinks they can turn their whole company around in three months.

Wonderful!

If you work in IT, you MUST read this book! It will save your sanity! Having been in IT for my entire career, it hits closer to home than anything I've read before. It's like "The Goal" by Eli Goldratt for IT!

I have no idea why I liked it.

I am not in business or IT. this couldn't be further from my field or life. but still, somehow the story was compelling enough that I read it for the pure entertainment and really enjoyed it.

Must read for IT professionals

The story line in this book has been repeated thousands of time in many organizations around the world. One of the best books I have read on understanding the importance of understanding your resource constraints and how they impact your whole organization from IT to business functions. Gaining alignment and focus on the right projects is the key to driving your business forward. Book also highlights a lot of Agile principals as well. Good read. Easy to relate to the theme of the book.

The most gripping novel I have read in a long time

I have been in the help desk, I have been in IT management, I have been in the upper echelons of management and business ownership.
The ideas put forth in this book are groundbreaking for today's economy and will be the groundwork for the highly agile businesses of the 21st Century.
If you want to make progress in your Enterprise and you are getting blowback from your managers, give them this book.

This is my organization

We had a “Phoenix project” that went horribly wrong and cost a considerable amount of time, money and effort (much of it heroic) to recover. We learned a little of what is in this book. Had we known about these processes before we may have avoided at least some of the cost. As the saying goes “there’s never enough money to do it right the first time, but there’s always enough to fix/do it right the second time” - and sadly so.

I was surprised at how much I liked this book!

At first, I wasn't sure if I would like this book; however, I was quickly hooked. I highly recommend this book to anyone even if they're not Techie. I'm looking forward to acquiring "Beyond The Phoenix Project" and some of the other books that are mentioned in this work. I'm grateful to Gene Kim, Kevin Behr and George Spafford for this great work; I'm also looking forward to listing to other Audible books narrated by Chris Ruen who made this audiobook so enjoyable. I'm really glad that my friend recommended it to me.

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 for everyone working in IT

The book is really well written and very interesting to listen to.
I had some "aha" moments that opened my eyes. I also recognized common practices in there that are still misused in the industry.
I can only recommend it.

Great book and outstanding narration

Amazing book for IT professionals. The narrator did a good job! He was changing his voice for different characters and that gave more live to the story. It was a pleasure listening to the book. Highly recommend!

Best DevSecOps ever told

Loved, how they made the IT work so relatable and simple to understand.

I have already recommend it to non - IT people and I think that's the highest praise I can give.

One minor criticism is that they could have covered the nuance of information security bit better, e.g. The understanding is risk in business context and then reporting on it to let the business understand and make risk decisions, rather than patching the system to the end, which I think should be part of the DNA of ops with security just enabling and ensuring risks are managed and reported to business of not.
