Publisher's Summary

Software is becoming more and more important across a broad range of industries, yet most technology executives struggle to deliver software improvements their businesses require.

Leading-edge companies like Amazon and Google are applying DevOps and Agile principles to deliver large software projects faster than anyone thought possible. But most executives don't understand how to transform their current legacy systems and processes to scale these principles across their organizations.

Leading the Transformation is an executive guide providing a clear framework for improving development and delivery. Instead of the traditional Agile and DevOps approaches that focus on improving the effectiveness of teams, this audiobook targets the coordination of work across teams in large organizations - an improvement that executives are uniquely positioned to lead. 

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

Surprisingly outdated for a book only 3 years old

Generally good content, but most examples are using 2000-2010 technologies and techniques. No mention of containers, etc.

Well summarised advice on how to conduct DevOps transformation

I enjoyed the concise way with which the topic was introduced. There was a brief description on why something needs that be done and enough concrete description but the book progressed with good pace from a topic to another.

Platitudes & Anecdotes of Limited Value

This book was hard to listen to. Nothing profound here and elitist in it's intended audience of old school management types. I want 4 hours of my life back.

narrowly scoped to software development

the name "leading the transformation" implies big promises for executives. however the book is mostly focuses on software development techniques. There is more in DevOps.
