Do you really understand what business value is? Information technology can and should deliver business value. But the Agile literature has paid scant attention to what business value means—and how to know whether or not you are delivering it. This problem becomes ever more critical as you push value delivery toward autonomous teams and away from requirements “tossed over the wall” by business stakeholders. An empowered team needs to understand its goal!

This non-fiction follow-up to The Phoenix Project shows leaders how to replicate these incredible outcomes, by demonstrating how to integrate Product Management, Development, QA, IT Operations, and Information Security to elevate your company and win in the marketplace.
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 book targets the coordination of work across teams in large organizations—an improvement that executives are uniquely positioned to make.
In this timely book by Information Technology time management expert Dominica DeGrandis, the real crime of the century is revealed—time theft, one of the most costly factors impacting enterprises in their day-to-day operations. Exercises, bulleted takeaways, and real-world examples from DeGrandis' own work experience all underpin the utility of the book's content. Additional vignettes throughout the book also show how other practices within an enterprise, such as marketing and financial departments, can use the same methods to solve and prevent time theft crimes within their own practices.
Learn how to recognize problems that happen in IT organizations; how these problems jeopardize nearly every commitment the business makes in Development, IT Operations, and Information Security; and how DevOps techniques can fix the problem to help the business win.
