Publisher's Summary

In the age of software, will your business dominate and maintain relevance? Or will it become a digital relic?

As tech giants and startups disrupt every market, those who master large-scale software delivery will define the economic landscape of the 21st century, just as the masters of mass production defined the landscape in the 20th. Unfortunately, business and technology leaders are woefully ill-equipped to solve the problems posed by digital transformation. At the current rate of disruption, half of the S&P 500 companies will be replaced in the next 10 years. A new approach is needed. 

In Project to Product, value stream network pioneer and technology business leader Dr. Mik Kersten introduces the Flow Framework - a new way of seeing, measuring, and managing software delivery. The Flow Framework will enable your company's evolution from project-oriented dinosaur to product-centric innovator that thrives in the age of software. If you're driving your organization's transformation at any level, this is the audiobook for you. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

More on this topic welcome

Engaging, well written, and delivered. I would like to see a followup with more concrete and specific examples of how things are working. Particularly how to increase flow for the human part of the network involved in delivering value to customers. As well, when implementation environments are complex and diverse, how is flow optimized?

Great book but missing the additional PDF material

The subject matter should concern anybody interested in how to link DevOps to the value generation in your business. Overall the author does a great job of advocating for the Flow Framework though details of how to implement in a large Enterprise are left out. The side-story of the authors visit to the Leipzig BMW plant and the insights gained from that contains more than a little echo of The Phoenix Project (and by implication, The Goal) and for those inspired by that book, this is one more piece of the puzzle on how business delivery needs to transform in the age of software.
However, the fact that the additional material referenced by the narrator is missing from the Audible version greatly reduces the value of the audio version.

Transformations

I especially like the first half of the book, excellent management perspective. Direct, software projects must be treated as software products. A must read/listen for project managers in a transformation environment.
