Bill is an IT manager at Parts Unlimited. It's Tuesday morning and on his drive into the office, Bill gets a call from the CEO. The company's new IT initiative, code named Phoenix Project, is critical to the future of Parts Unlimited, but the project is massively over budget and very late. The CEO wants Bill to report directly to him and 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 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.

The business-focused, best-practice guide to succeeding with ITIL change and release management • • Brings together the make-or-break lessons many consultants don't know or won't tell • Offers a comprehensive roadmap for planning, implementation, and operation • Addresses crucial ground-level issues ranging from data migration to successful piloting • By the author of IBM Press's highly successful Implementing ITIL Configuration Management ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) promises to help IT organizations streamline and integrate their operations, dramatically improving efficiency and delivering greater business value. Interest in ITIL is taking off: all over the world, enterprises are spending heavily on consultants to get new ITIL projects off the ground. Even so, many ITIL initiatives fail. Now, for the first time, there's a comprehensive best practice guide to succeeding with two of the most crucial and challenging parts of ITIL: change and release management. This business-focused book brings together solid expertise gained from real implementations across multiple industries. Readers will discover where to invest, which traps to avoid, and how to build successful, long-term change and release management practices that deliver real return on investment. They will find detailed guidance on each process, integrated into a comprehensive roadmap for planning, implementation, and operation - a roadmap they won't find anywhere else. Using practical examples, Larry Klosterboer offers in-depth coverage of the crucial issues every implementer will face: issues that are often neglected in conventional discussions of ITIL. For example, readers will learn how to set a reasonable project scope, migrate data from old systems, execute a successful pilot program, and continually improve quality once ITIL practices are in place.
