Trusted by technology leaders worldwide.

Since publishing The Phoenix Project in 2013, and launching DevOps Enterprise Summit (now Enterprise Technology Leadership Summit) in 2014, we’ve been assembling guidance from industry experts and top practitioners.


Mission Statement

Our goal is to elevate the state of technology work, quantify the economic and human costs associated with suboptimal IT performance, and improve the lives of millions of IT professionals.

We publish bestselling books such as The Phoenix Project, Team Topologies, and Accelerate, as well as guidance papers authored by enterprise technology leaders and industry luminaries. This all comes together at our annual Enterprise Technology Leadership Summits in the US and Europe.
