Publisher's Summary

Agile, Lean, and DevOps approaches are radical game changers, providing a fundamentally different way to think about how IT fits into the enterprise, how IT leaders lead, and how IT can harness technology to accomplish the objectives of the enterprise. But honest and open conversations are not taking place between management and Agile delivery teams.
In A Seat at the Table, CIO Mark Schwartz explores the role of IT leadership as it is now and opens the door to reveal IT leadership as it should be - an integral part of the value creation engine. With wit and easy style, Schwartz reveals that the only way to become an Agile IT leader is to be courageous - to throw off the attitude and assumptions that have kept CIOs from taking their rightful seat at the table. CIOs, step on up, your seat at the table is waiting for you.

Sage, practical, visionary & courageous

If DevOps & Agile transform how developers and engineers think, then what do IT "leaders" bring to this revolution? This book was an articulate treatise on the IT Leader as "Business Leader" in marshaling the true impact and value of DevOps & agile to the business world.

Insightful

The principals Mark Schwartz writes about are incredibly insightful. The aspects of Agile and DevOps addressed in this book aren't covered any where else I've seen and are critical to understanding why these disciplines came to be.

For senior IT leaders when the business isn't IT

From the relationship of IT and the business/in the business to agile, DevOps, shadow IT, build Vs buy.

Probably the most relevant and inspiring book I've heard this year.
