by Gene Kim
Review feedback summary
Excellent book. This was recommended to me by couple of colleagues. I finished it in less than a week. I’m really taken by the amount of information and tips that I can apply in my work.
This book will help everyone who has worked in the IT field for a decent amount of time realize that what they’re doing is much more than how they’ve been pigeon-holed in the past. The systematic approach of bringing right strategic thinking to IT is amazing and well delivered.
The Phoenix Project” fictionalizes the relationship between IT OPS and DEV groups, focusing on the IT manager, his peers and individual contributors. It lays bare all those familiar problems we’ve all seen for decades. It relates those problems to issues seen in other industries since industry was invented in a way that’s clear, easy to visualize, easy to relate to, and entertaining to read.
