The Unicorn Project reads like a fiction novel, following Maxine, a senior lead developer and architect, as she is exiled to the Phoenix Project as punishment for contributing to a payroll outage. She tries to survive in what feels like a heartless and uncaring bureaucracy and to work within a system where no one can get anything done without endless committees, paperwork, and approvals. This book is a must read for anyone navigating a tech company, as an engineer or especially as a leader. Or any other role, for that matter.
