The Phoenix Project – a DevOps Simulation Game NY/NJ
Many modern organizations have adopted DevOps as an essential survival skill and key differentiator. The Phoenix Project Game is a serious business simulation that teaches you the essentials of DevOps by applying them in practice. It’s an excellent tool for team-building and the perfect start for your DevOps journey.
For this training, the game is played during one full day, either in-company or at the selected venue. It will be facilitated in English (with game materials in English).
Imagine your company, Parts Unlimited, is in deep trouble. Sales are tumbling, the stock price is taking a dive. But there’s one hope: a comprehensive plan called “The Phoenix Project” could ensure the company survives, and even becomes competitive again.
The challenge for your team, if you choose to accept it, is to make the Phoenix Project a success and save Parts Unlimited from impending doom. To succeed, your team must take on all the different DevOps roles- development, testing, operations, business, and management - and learn to work together effectively.
The game is an excellent way for new groups to get to know each other and build a real team focused on results. The simulation also provides a safe and fun environment for any team to experiment, compressing months’ worth of continuous improvements into a single day.
Discover new solutions for delivering more reliable software faster and learn to collaborate more effectively within the entire value chain. Your team will leave with a full bag of lessons learned they can put into practice the next day.
