IT Revolution Publishes Four New Books
September 14, 2017

IT Revolution announced further expansion of its Publishing practice with four new books to be released over the next several months.

A Seat at the Table: IT Leadership in the Age of Agility by Mark Schwartz explores the role of IT leadership as it is now and opens the door to reveal IT leadership as it should be — an integral part of the value creation engine. As a returning IT Revolution author, Schwartz was the Chief Information Officer (CIO), US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and now is Enterprise Strategist at Amazon Web Services. Schwartz's book will be available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in October.

Making Work Visible: Exposing Time Theft to Optimize Work & Flow by Dominica DeGrandis reveals the real crime of the century — time theft, one of the most costly factors impacting enterprises in their day-to-day operations. DeGrandis, who serves as Director of Digital Transformation at Tasktop, offers simple solutions that make work visible, helps people round up the five thieves of time and take back their lives with time-saving solutions. DeGrandis' book will be released in November and also will be available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

The DevOps Handbook: How to Create World-Class Agility, Reliability, and Security in Technology Organizations, written by IT Revolution authors Gene Kim, John Willis, Patrick Debois and Jez Humble, is being made available as an audiobook from Amazon and Barnes & Noble this October. This nonfiction follow-up to The Phoenix Project shows leaders how to replicate these incredible outcomes, by demonstrating how to integrate Product Management, Development, QA, IT Operations, and Information Security to elevate your company and win in the marketplace.

The third edition of The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win, the international book that has sold more than 350,000 copies and jumpstarted the formation of IT Revolution back in 2013, will be available in January 2018. In The Phoenix Project, readers learn how to recognize problems that happen in IT organizations; how these problems jeopardize nearly every commitment the business makes in Development, IT Operations, and Information Security; and, how DevOps techniques can fix the problems to help the business win.
