It's comforting to hear there is a way out. Even dealing with the executives' impression of the teams' capability level; it's comforting to hear this happens elsewhere.

Would you listen to Rolling Rocks Downhill again? Why?
Absolutely! This book was a great story about a company that is so similar to the one I'm working that is undergoing an agile transition.
What did you like best about this story?
It's agile but doesn't scream agile at you along with Clarke's sense of humor and love for bacon is wonderful. The story was told in a way that allows me in my agile transition to take a different look at how everything is working, from the scrum teams to the executives within the organization.
Have you listened to any of Paul Kearney’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not listened to any other of Paul's performances. He was good an being an American I appreciate the UK accent!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The ending, how everything pulled together in the big moment with the CEO.
Any additional comments?
Clarke is an amazing author and his book is a great resource for understanding what and how agile works in a real world setting of an organization (which is oddly close to one that I work in!).

The parable was interesting and we get quite a good idea of how changes were implemented. I think I slightly preferred The Phoenix Project, but this is defo worth a listen too.

I have listened to both this book and the phoenix project, I found this one less inspiring and informative even as the story underlining is basically the same and relatively get you a good intro to lean and agile methods for DevOps
