Book Club: Kill It With Fire by Marianne Bellotti

Our inaugural guest is Marianne Bellotti, author of the acclaimed book Kill it with Fire. Thanks to our partners at IBM, we’re going to spend 90 minutes diving into the challenges of legacy systems, technical culture, and modernization.

Want a taste of what we’ll be discussing? If you haven’t had a chance to read the book, we’ve recorded an interview with Marianne and FWD50 chair Alistair Croll. They look at the patterns of legacy modernization, the history of IT infrastructure, technical culture, pitfalls, and what leaders can do to cultivate continuous improvement.


From time to time, we run Book Clubs to discuss the latest in digital transformation and public sector innovation with fellow leaders and noted experts. Each session is a candid online conversation, in which we cover a brief synopsis of a book and its key ideas, followed by an open peer discussion with the author.
