The consultancy organisation Open Limits is pleased to announce its UK launch of a brand new business simulation ‘The Phoenix Project’, on 15th June 2016 at BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, London offices, located near Covent Garden

The simulation is based on the best-selling book called ‘The Phoenix Project’ that has inspired many thousands of business leaders to implement digital business transformations in their organisations. The project on the day is played in four rounds whereby attendees are given roles which include IT Support, IT Development, CIO, QA, Security, CFO, Retail Operations and Head of HR.

Participants at the event will take a role, and share in the decision making, change planning and implementation, in a continually evolving, complex, political business environment, with stakeholders with varying degrees of understanding of – and buy-in to – digital transformation.

Open Limits are inviting senior managers from across IT, as well as from different business functions, plus a number of industry specialists and experienced DevOps practitioners. Jan Schilt, the Simulation designer, will be coming over from the Netherlands to facilitate at the event, and the day will be introduced by Jon Buttriss CEO of BCS Learning & Development Ltd, part of the Institute.

Jon Buttriss, CEO of BCS L&D Ltd, part of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, said,
"The role of simulation projects is vital in terms of providing organisations with innovative business solutions. Organisations which adopt the right DevOps methodology and agile processes can ensure they have a successful edge over competitors in the digital age.”
