Roundtable discussion with Local Project Managers from finance, IT, energy construction, and healthcare.
Join us for our third book club! We'll be reading The Phoenix Project (A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win). Get a copy of the book (Available at our local Auntie's Bookstore or at Amazon) and read by January 26th, then meet with the group to discuss. You'll earn 1 PDU for each hour spent reading (which you'll self-report on the PMI website).
Here's a description of the book (from the publisher):
Bill, an IT manager at Parts Unlimited, has been tasked with taking on a project critical to the future of the business, code named Phoenix Project. But the project is massively over budget and behind schedule. The CEO demands Bill must 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 a 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.
