Reaching Cloud Velocity: A Leader’s Guide to Success in the AWS Cloud

I bought this book because I knew there were some mentions to Wardley Maps, and I was curious about how they were used by AWS people.

When I received the book I was a little bit disappointed, as the book just contain a chapter where they introduce Wardley Maps as part of the business transformations they are used to perform in different companies they work with. My disappointment comes from the fact that I already know Wardley Maps.

But here is the point, the whole book is an explanation of how to transform your company into a cloud based company, focusing on all aspects.

This left me a little bit bitter taste too, as Transformation and Transition Manager, I have done this type of work and all was very familiar to me, and my expectation was to find something completely different that let me learn.

If you are not a Transition & Transformation Program manager that have been involved in this type of initiatives the book is going to result interesting to you.

The book is a good guide of all the aspects that you should have into account when doing a transformation such it. And it contains specific target models about how the target operating model can be and should be managed.

As in all transformations, this is a business topic not a technology topic, it was always the case.
