The Goal also inspired my favourite tech business book, The Phoenix Project[1]. As in The Goal, the protagonist has a mentor who asks pointed questions that are the slow-burning fuse which later unlock understanding. Easy to read, wise, and useful at work. I've caused at least ten people around me to read it, and they've all been grateful.

The Phoenix Project is a really inspirational novel, good for 'getting' the devops mindset and also as a tool to get other people in your organisation on board.

The DevOps Handbook is a sister book to The Phoenix Project which is more technically oriented around the practicalities of closer integration between Dev and Ops.

The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win

Read The Visible Ops Handbook [1], implement what they talk about, it is an easy read too. On the tools site: puppet [2]. Puppet allows you to bake these controls into your infrastructure and monitor if things change.

p.s. I also read "The Phoenix Project" [3] a couple days ago and it give some good ideas on how to stop in insanity.
