This review is from: Kanban (Kindle Edition)
I was expecting a quick fix for enduring years of poor or lack of structure in software development.
I was expecting a text on how to set up that Kanban process wall chart that would be better than GTD methodology.
Actually what this book does is really explore how to improve a software development cycle by focusing on continuous quality and delivery. If you are a software developer getting beaten by project plans, micromanagement and ridiculous sales forecasts then perhaps this book could demonstrate:
a) You are not the problem
b) How to contribute to improve the software development process
c) How to make the software development and delivery process transparent
d) How to foster new trust and collaboration in the software team
e) How to influence others to buy into and accept change for a better way of achieving better results.
I was recommend this approach by an author of books.
If you are implementing a lot of one-off solutions, innovating and being really creative then Kanban can help.
If you feel you are the ultimate technical expert, have nothing more to learn, with a top-down, dictatorial project management outlook, please do us all a favor and go do something useful with your life :)
