The 1960s saw great upheaval in the West, with social change giving rise to civil disobedience, no more so than in the student movement. By 1968 the government has become concerned that communism may be a factor and calls on Polly Bottomley for advice. Mrs Bottomley, a retired MP, has unrivalled experience of Soviet conspiracies, having been involved on two occasions with their attempts to conspire, both in Britain and in Europe. However, her life will be put in grave danger and an emotional and romantic attachment will become a distraction over which she has no control and will change her life forever. The Phoenix Project paints a vivid picture of how political ambition can be exploited for personal reasons and can soon spiral out of control.

Genre: Business & Economics

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!Playful and thought-provoking, The Art of Business Value explores what business value means, why it matters, and how it should affect your software development and delivery practices. More than any other IT delivery approach, DevOps (and Agile thinking in general) makes business value a central concern. This book examines the role of business value in software and makes a compelling case for why a clear understanding of business value will change the way you deliver software.This book will make you think deeply about not only what it means to deliver value but also the relationship of the IT organization to the rest of the enterprise. It will give you the language to discuss value with the business, methods to cut through bureaucracy, and strategies for incorporating Agile teams and culture into the enterprise. Most of all, this book will startle you into new ways of thinking about the cutting-edge of Agile practice and where it may lead.
