Bill is an IT manager at Parts Unlimited. It's Tuesday morning and on his drive into the office, Bill gets a call from the CEO. The company's new IT initiative, code named Phoenix Project, is critical to the future of Parts Unlimited, but the project is massively over budget and very late. The CEO wants Bill to report directly to him and fix the mess in ninety 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. Readers will not only learn how to improve their own IT organizations, they'll never view IT the same way again.… (mais)

Couldn’t put it down

Really good story. I can’t believe a book about corporate IT made me feel so much. But the characters are compelling and the topic is close at to my heart.

I can just see myself in Bill’s shoes, not the competent cool under pressure part, but the feeling of having no idea what’s going on or how to fix it. It was interesting to read about IT from the point of view of manufacturing. My company is dealing with some of the issues addressed in this book which made it hard not to see comparisons between certain characters and people I work with.

All and all good book. It could use a second editing pass though, lots of small grammatical mistakes. But I’m definitely reading the the sequel. ( )

Read for work, it was okay. ( )

Meant as a morality play for managers ends up being a wish fulfilment power fantasy with mary-sue characters. I know it's America but I had no idea half the men in there did military service. Great work on keeping that 20 million strong army a secret. I was expecting Erik to turn out to be the protagonists hallucination or the DevOps fairy. Was disappointed. It's also pretty lame as a regular book. ( )

A great introduction to the topic, with a very relatable story. I've worked with several companies like Parts Unlimited. Light on practical details, so best read with The DevOps Handbook, and the ending does feel a bit land of milk and honey, and highly optimistic.

If however you've ever been on a team that's had to do deployments late at night, had to debug production issues caused by unscheduled changes, ever had an argument between Dev, QA, security and ops about who's making things slow, read this book to understand that you are not alone and there is a way out.

Reading this book a second time, having done this book for a book club at work for the second time.

I enjoyed it more the second time, since I had the opportunity to ponder the teachings moreso than the tale this time.

I think this book is essential reading currently as it pertains to the state of growing software companies to scale. It's a book more for decision makers than individuals, but there are plenty of insights to arm individual contributors with ideas of how to grow success in their own limited spheres as well.

As a novel, it's clear the author is well-written but not a fiction writer by trade. I have some qualms about certain characterizations needed to make characters noble or villainous, and the over-reliance on deference to the military. There are reasons these are involved to keep the book moving, but for a book that's a parable it allows too much reading into these aspects than were intended.

The basic teachings of the book, the idea of "The Four Ways" of work and how one should be thinking about workflow, are things I'm now starting to notice both in my personal life and in my professional life and I'm starting to see rewarding effects to consciously engaging with them. In some ways I wish I had read the companion "DevOps Handbook" first so that I could have gotten straight to the meat of the book, but fiction stories are good ways for people to get into these kinds of topics without it feeling too textbook and dry.
