"The Phoenix Project" is a Socratic novel, inspired by Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt’s book “The Goal” which follows Bill Palmer, an IT manager at Parts Unlimited.
The company’s new IT initiative, code named Phoenix Project, is critical to the future of Parts Unlimited, but it’s over budget and very late. The CEO wants Bill to fix the mess. Bill has ninety days to fix the project or his entire department will be outsourced.
With the help of a prospective board member’s mysterious philosophy of The Three Ways, Bill starts to see that all the work has more in common with a manufacturing floor than he ever imagined. Bill must organize how work must be done, streamline the department, and effectively serve 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. Readers will learn how to improve their own IT organization. You’ll never view IT the same way again.
