IT Revolution announced its newest book, The (Delicate) Art of Bureaucracy: Digital Transformation with the Monkey, the Razor, and the Sumo Wrestler.
Paperback, eBook and Audio editions are available October 13.
Authored by Mark Schwartz, Enterprise Strategist at Amazon Web Services (AWS), The (Delicate) Art of Bureaucracy presents humor, history, and real-life examples from his days as a government bureaucrat. Schwartz puts forth a one-of-a-kind playbook to show technology and business leaders how to wield bureaucracy as a superpower and bust through it at the same time.
"People are really good at creating bureaucracy, so we find it everywhere. The only way we can accomplish large-scale change like digital transformation," Schwartz says, "is to make the bureaucracy become lean, learning and enabling."
"What I've learned is the frustrations of bureaucracy can be addressed by techniques that are analogous to the ones that we use in DevOps and digital transformation."
