Publisher's Summary

Many organizations are facing the uphill battle of modernizing their legacy IT infrastructure. Most have evolved over the years by taking lessons from traditional or legacy manufacturing to create a production process that puts the emphasis on the process instead of the people performing the tasks. This allows the organization to treat people like resources to try to achieve high-quality outcomes. But those practices and ideas are failing modern IT, where collaboration and creativeness are required to achieve high-performing, high-quality success.

Mirco Hering, a thought leader in managing IT within legacy organizations, lays out a road map to success for IT managers and tells them how to create the right ecosystem, how to empower people to bring their best to work every day, and how to put the right technology in the driver's seat to propel their organization to success.

But just having the right methods and tools will not magically transform an organization. The cultural change is the hardest and the most impactful. Using principles from Agile, Lean, and DevOps as well as firsthand examples from the enterprise world, Hering addresses the different challenges that legacy organizations face as they transform into modern IT departments.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

great first chapter, but then it got weak

I really enjoyed the early chapter on batch sizes, but the rest didn't contribute much with actual advice that gets me closer to doing microservices.

SAFe is NOT Agile!

I was hoping that this book would focus on implementing Agile methodology into an organization. And to a certain point it does.

But using SAFe and doing planning for months is just another waterfall methodology :/

The book has some great high lights, but as with SAFe - don’t try to implement it as a whole and say you’re agile!

Just OK

This book fails to inspire but gets the basic message across. I find the reader rather boring and uninspiring. DevOps is friggin exciting and powerful!! That fact is lost on this book.

great advice for all maturity levels.

Very practical advice. The author has obviously spent a lot of time developing their skill and we are fortunate enough to learn from it.

Good book

It is a good book with a lot of insight and I recommend it to anyone interested in DevOps and modern delivery practices.
It tackles more advanced topics and, at least for me, it offered some insight into someone else’s point of view.

Probably the best DevOps book I have read

I have greatly enjoyed this book! It is probably the best DevOps book I have read this year, especially for the non-unicorn enterprise. It has validated a lot of what I have encountered as a consultant, and the exercises provided are good starters for improving DevOps processes in real organisations.

Poor narration

Subject matter was good but the tone of the narration is awfully unnatural.

Extremely difficult to follow, I would refund it if I could.
