5.0 out of 5 stars The Escape Velocity for IT, 18 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Coming from an Operations background I found myself laughing throughout reading this. Chapter after chapter I could place myself in the situations Bill found himself in.

The books character personification has to be said was nothing less than fantastic. I suspect many will read this and say, "he sounds an awful lot like ..."

I think The Phoenix Project is equally important to Business as it is IT. There are similarities in the ethos between Escape Velocity's Horizons 1,2 & 3 as there are The Phoenix Projects 1st,2nd & 3rd ways. I certainly found that the commonalities were ground breaking and the book signifies proof of a breakdown of barriers between IT and the Business; united by a common goal.

It is a very good read and I have already recommended this to colleagues in Business, Operations, and Development as it reinforces the principle of seek first to understand.

A Great combined effort.
