UPDATE: Gene Kim’s reaction added at the bottom…
Why you should preorder The Unicorn Project in four tweets. 🙂
As someone who frequently speaks publicly, I know how powerful answering “How does this apply to me?” is. If you are in IT dev or ops, you will have that answer from @RealGeneKim’s upcoming to-be classic, “The Unicorn Project.” I’d preorder it now 🙂 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QT9QR41/
@RealGeneKim Basically, in “The Phoenix Project,” Gene made Goldratt’s seminal work, “The Goal,” real 4 IT, especially on the ops side. In “The Phoenix Project,” Gene drives it home on the dev side (but not by ignoring ops). This book will be a must read for all levels, indiv contrib to exec.
@RealGeneKim Why all levels? If u r an indiv contrib u’ll see all the symptoms of the dysfunctional dev & ops illness called out, & know THERE IS A CURE!
If u r a leader (right up through exec), u’ll finally c why placebos do so little, & have a chance to prescribe the true cure as a team!
@RealGeneKim How do I know? I’ve read The Goal. I’ve read The Phoenix Project. & I was blessed 2 read an unproofed, prepub copy of The Unicorn Project. I’m already torturing my boss 2 get its ideas piloted in our dev org. 🙂
Buy the book. Torture your boss. Improve lives & the bottom line.
