For this training, the game is played during one full day, either in-company or at Xebia’s training locations in Amsterdam or Hilversum. It can be facilitated in both English or Dutch (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, compressesing 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. Plus, a pretty cool poster as well.
The game’s design was inspired by the book The Phoenix Project. However, it does not strictly follow the story. You can participate without having read the book and reading the book does not spoil the game.
