Best book I have read on Digital Transformation

Several points set this book apart from some others that I have read.

First, the author is technical, and has actually been hands-on for at least three transformations. Some CIOs are not technical, but this author can speak with authority because he has been deep enough in the weeds for the reader to trust his analysis and recommendations.

Second, I agree completely with the authors statements on Agile, Quality Assurance Teams, and DevOps as a whole. I have experience in a few of the areas, and he is spot on with his analysis. One cannot run a digital transformation without embracing Agile, QA, and DevOps. This book reinforces why.

I learned a lot from this book regarding Agile Portfolio Management and transformation into a data-driven organization. After reading the book, I learned why some regular practices will cause long-term problems.

I also really like how author speaks with candor, especially in both the introduction and the closing. I appreciate that he is a straight-shooter and tells it like it is. There needs to be more candor like this in many organizations.

Extremely Judgemental

The book was written based on author’s experiences, therefore is full of judgements and without any case-based arguments.
Content is interesting but should be reduced to 1/5 of the current size
