Tech Book: The Phoenix Project

This is a technical book, packaged as a very readable tale of an IT Manager who is promoted to Vice President of IT Operations across his company. Whilst Bill runs a tight ship in his small department, the company as a whole has a poor culture for delivering software. Bill is ordered by the CEO to do whatever it takes to bring the Phoenix Project (an IT re-vamp vital to the company’s business) to completion.

Much of the technical content concerns the DevOps arena and touches on issue tracking and prioritisation as well as improving time to delivery. It’s a good read as well as making some well-argued technical points.
