DevOps and Kanban: Lessons Learned from “The Phoenix Project”

Published By Gene Kim

Find out why I, co-author of The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win and The DevOps Cookbook, recommend Kanban to improve the practice of IT.

I discuss how to solve common IT problems  including developer due date performance, availability, security and compliance — using DevOps patterns of work.

Kanban boards appear prominently throughout the The Phoenix Project as the mechanism to visualize work, limit WIP and ensure fast flow, especially where work crosses organizational boundaries (e.g., between Dev and Ops) and creates bottlenecks.
