The Phoenix Project

The Phoenix Project

So The Phoenix Project has been out for about a month now (read an excerpt here), and it has been the talk of IT and IS professionals all over the place. I’ve been pestering Gene to release some of the underlying research that went into the book for people that want to learn more. The fable is a GREAT place to start, but when you go to implement the concepts in the book, it’s nice to have some of the underlying theory behind it when you go change your operations.

So here’s the first installment of the core concepts in The Phoenix Project. If you are affiliated with a university (as a student or alumni) you may be able to get access to some of the elements that Gene refers to.

If you still want more, come see us at RSA Conference! We will be presenting on Wednesday, February 27th at 9:20am in room 309. We will go over how you can use many of the concepts of lean manufacturing in a security organization. We will be drawing from this book as well as the resources listed on the page above. We hope to see you there!

In other news, I am currently looking for my next exciting opportunity! For my full CV and a quick two-pager, please go to!
