Agile @ CollabraSpace Virtual Tech Talk: Book Club - The Unicorn Project

* Required information

  • **New Date - October 7th** CollabraSpace Team Member Leah Burman has been successfully presenting and training the community on the many aspects of Agile. For the October 7th Virtual TechTalk, Leah will be holding a book club discussion on the book The Unicorn Project by Gene Kim.

About The Unicorn Project

  • In The Unicorn Project, we follow Maxine, a senior lead developer and architect, as she is exiled to the Phoenix Project, to the horror of her friends and colleagues, as punishment for contributing to a payroll outage. She tries to survive in what feels like a heartless and uncaring bureaucracy and to work within a system where no one can get anything done without endless committees, paperwork, and approvals.

  • One day, she is approached by a ragtag bunch of misfits who say they want to overthrow the existing order, to liberate developers, to bring joy back to technology work, and to enable the business to win in a time of digital disruption. To her surprise, she finds herself drawn ever further into this movement, eventually becoming one of the leaders of the Rebellion, which puts her in the crosshairs of some familiar and very dangerous enemies.

  • The Age of Software is here, and another mass extinction event looms--this is a story about rebel developers and business leaders working together, racing again
