Editorial Reviews

Review

"Beyond Blame is a compelling, well-written story about avoiding some of the most natural and dangerous problems that derail teams."
- Patrick Lencioni; president, The Table Group; author, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team and The Advantage


"Anyone who has assigned, received or witnessed blame resulting from a high profile outage will find this fictionalized story an uncomfortable read. And yet the lessons of how to translate failures into learning are essential for any high performing organization."
- Gene Kim, co-author of The Phoenix Project: A DevOps Novel


"Zwieback's fable feels instantly familiar to anyone who works with complex systems. In his short, rapid fire chapters, he quickly boils down a colossal amount of information to answer the most relevant questions: What keeps us from learning when we fail or succeed? How can we learn better? A fine read."
- Michael Lopp, head of engineering at Pinterest, and author of Managing Humans: Biting and Humorous Tales of a Software Engineering Manager and Being Geek: The Software Developer's Career Handbook


"Let Zwieback take you on a journey straight into the heart of failure, complexity, forgiveness and restorative justice. Well worth your time."
- Professor Sidney Dekker, MA MSc PhD, Safety Science Innovation Lab, Griffith University. Bestselling author of Field Guide to Understanding Human Error.


"A novel approach, explaining learning retrospectively (and the application of Cynefin) through an extended narrative.  Rich context, good understanding."
- David Snowden, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer at Cognitive Edge, creator of the Cynefin framework.
