About This Book This book, "Managing Digital: Concepts and Practices", is intended to guide a practitioner through the journey of building a digital-first viewpoint and the skills needed to thrive in the digital-first world. As such, this book is a bit of an experiment for The Open Group; it isn’t structured as a traditional standard or guide. Instead, it is structured to show the key issues and skills needed at each stage of the digital journey, starting with the basics of a small digital project, eventually building to the concerns of a large enterprise. So, feel free to digest this book in stages — the section Introduction for the student is a good guide. The book is intended for both academic and industry training purposes. This book seeks to provide guidance for both new entrants into the digital workforce and experienced practitioners seeking to update their understanding on how all the various themes and components of IT management fit together in the new world.

Agile teams have been struggling with the concept of continuous improvement since the first Agile frameworks were developed, and still very little has been written about the practice of continuous improvement in Agile environments. Although team retrospectives have been prescribed and some practices have been introduced in order to implement and facilitate them, the truth is that most Agile teams are conducting dull retrospectives that end with a list of things that have been done wrong, just to repeat the same list two weeks later at the next meeting. Instead of listing hundreds of Japanese-labeled tools, this book gives you practical insights into how to spot improvement opportunities, how to plan for improvement and how to engage everyone in your company in the Kaizen process. In addition, it will also provide you with 27 proven practices and 12 bonus activities to introduce into your retrospectives in order to keep them fresh, creative and exciting, so you can promise a team that, in a year’s time, no two retrospectives will be alike. This book helps you as a manager, team leader, change agent or consultant in any type of organization to unleash the real power of Kaizen cultures – no matter what kind of organization, market, product, technology, vision, goal or size. It provides you with the background, tools and practical hints on how to engage your organization in a process of continuous quest for new and better ways of performing.

Solve complex business problems by understanding users better, finding the right problem to solve, and building lean event-driven systems to give your customers what they really want Key Features Apply DDD principles using modern tools such as EventStorming, Event Sourcing, and CQRS Learn how DDD applies directly to various architectural styles such as REST, reactive systems, and microservices Empower teams to work flexibly with improved services and decoupled interactions Book Description Developers across the world are rapidly adopting DDD principles to deliver powerful results when writing software that deals with complex business requirements. This book will guide you in involving business stakeholders when choosing the software you are planning to build for them. By figuring out the temporal nature of behavior-driven domain models, you will be able to build leaner, more agile, and modular systems. You’ll begin by uncovering domain complexity and learn how to capture the behavioral aspects of the domain language. You will then learn about EventStorming and advance to creating a new project in .NET Core 2.1; you’ll also and write some code to transfer your events from sticky notes to C#. The book will show you how to use aggregates to handle commands and produce events. As you progress, you’ll get to grips with Bounded Contexts, Context Map, Event Sourcing, and CQRS. After translating domain models into executable C# code, you will create a frontend for your application using Vue.js. In addition to this, you’ll learn how to refactor your code and cover event versioning and migration essentials. By the end of this DDD book, you will have gained the confidence to implement the DDD approach in your organization and be able to explore new techniques that complement what you’ve learned from the book. What you will learn Discover and resolve domain complexity together with business stakeholders Avoid common pitfalls when creating the domain model Study the concept of Bounded Context and aggregate Design and build temporal models based on behavior and not only data Explore benefits and drawbacks of Event Sourcing Get acquainted with CQRS and to-the-point read models with projections Practice building one-way flow UI with Vue.js Understand how a task-based UI conforms to DDD principles Who this book is for This book is for .NET developers who have an intermediate level understanding of C#, and for those who seek to deliver value, not just write code. Intermediate level of competence in JavaScript will be helpful to follow the UI chapters.
