5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling noval on continously improving the value stream using the modern DevOps tech stack
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 November 2021
Written in the same novel thriller style as The Phoenix Project, Gene Kim touches on every element you need to transform a slow-moving monolithic digital setup to a more modern Agile and Lean operation which allows you to validate ideas and solve problems at speed, getting ahead in the market.

I found the original Phoenix book gripping and a fun read as I've not experienced a manufacturing plant environment before, but I found the Unicorn Project more predictable as I was reading it, but I guess that's due to going through various Agile and DevOps transformations over the past few years...

...saying that, it was still a pleasure to read the heroics of Maxine, Kurt and Brent with their relentless perseverance and motivation to continually improve and learn whilst getting ideas to customers, hearing about the fruits of the impacts they were making, and the value that a dedicated and empowered team can have, through a different lens.

"A healthy software system is one that you can change at the speed you need, where people can contribute easily, without jumping through hoops."

"Because the distance from where decisions are made and where work is performed keeps growing, the quality of our outcomes diminish."

"It's been true for hundreds of years and probably thousands more: employee engagement and customer satisfaction are the only things that matter. If we do that right, and manage cash effectively, every other financial target will take care of itself." Amen!

Another fantastic book by Gene which I'd recommend for anyone experiencing significant delays in the value stream or generally interested in DevOps.
