If you’re in security, have you ever heard these comments?

Security is always surprising us with work. 

I don’t know how to get my project through security.

I need a dedicated security person for my agile team.

In this presentation, we’re going to take a journey looking at security through the lens of Gene Kim’s instant classic “The Phoenix Project”.  Identify ways that you can capture all the “work” going through your organization in order to understand yours and your partner’s constraints, attack bottlenecks, and move work more efficiently into and out of the organization.
