Books about Business Agility, Product Management, Kanban, Lean, and similar topics generally cover theory, values, and principles in some detail, and understandably so. What’s often missing from such books: simple, clear, practical instructions that can help teams achieve desired outcomes. This book leverages the practical experiences of the author, making available no-nonsense, simple advice that can help any team improve.
