Failure is inevitable and a postmortem analysis, conducted in an open, blameless way, is the best way for IT techs and managers to learn from outages and near-misses. But when the "root cause" is determined to be "human error" (or worse, particular humans), the real causes and conditions are lost. In this insightful book, IT veteran Dave Zwieback shows you an approach for making postmortems blameless, so you can focus instead on addressing areas of fragility within systems and organizations. If you’re involved with assessing why something goes wrong on a project or at your company—as a system administrator, developer, team manager, or executive—the concrete steps in this guide will help you find a real solution that works. Recognize and mitigate the effects of stress during outages Learn how to communicate effectively in a charged, high-stakes postmortem conversation Collect the necessary data before the postmortem begins Focus on determining the actual causes and conditions of an outage Learn techniques for writing up a postmortem for either internal or external use

The inspiring new book from the author of Emotional Bullshit reveals why no one is to blame-but everyone's accountable. For many, a rare day goes by in which the need to blame does not arise-be it to cover one's own errors or just to assign an unfortunate event some kind of name (i.e., "If only X hadn't said X, we wouldn't be in this mess.") And even for those who are somewhat better at keeping the impulse in check-it is still there. According to psychologist Carl Alasko, blame is such an intrinsic part of how we humans communicate that we rarely take a look at what we're actually doing-and how it can affect our relationships. In this book, Alasko reveals that the need to assign blame when something bad happens stems from a very deep desire we all share to "see justice done". Understandable when a grave crime has been committed, but it can become a dangerous habit if we begin to operate as though placing blame were somehow necessary if we want to change something or someone in our world. Yet this feeling that "someone has to pay" is seldom productive in initiating positive change. In Beyond Blame, Alasko teaches readers to recognize destruction that blame causes in their lives-oftentimes without their even being aware-and to put an end to it once and for all. The path to eliminating blame is not a quick or easy one but, as Carl Alasko demonstrates, it is a road that must be traveled if we hope to achieve true peace in our lives.

BEYOND BLAME is a well-designed road map for those interested in solutions to America's most intractable social problem: the race issue. The author, active in the black liberation struggle from the 60s, has emerged a proponent of racial harmony & black self- determination. He states: "Americans of African decent in leadership positions must give serious consideration to revamping their strategies & rhetoric if the masses of black people in America are to survive with dignity in the Space Age." BEYOND BLAME focuses on solutions. It forthrightly answers a number of lingering questions, including: *Why the victimization card should no longer be played *Why white guilt is counterproductive *How culpable is middle-class black America? Tony Brown, nationally syndicated television talk show host, has called BEYOND BLAME "Must reading." John Seigenthaler, founding editorial director of USA TODAY, states: "BEYOND BLAME...makes compelling good sense."
