Xebia offers DevOps simulation game “The Phoenix Project”

Posted on November 24, 2017

We strongly believe that DevOps requires a shift in culture and mindset with an impact on your people, processes and technology. DevOps starts with team effort and therefore the best way to step into it is by experiencing it. 

The simulation game “The Phoenix project” has been developed by our partner GamingWorks and it is based on the novel “The Phoenix Project” by Gene Kim, a well-recognized DevOps knowledge source. The game has been designed to translate theory into practice and allow the participants to experiment and draw conclusions on adopting DevOps practices. 

During the game, participants experience the need to work together closely in order to ensure the success of the IT enabled business transformation.
