The inspiration for David Anderson's Kanban Method for software and service delivery.
on 8 July 2017
This book is an insightful and enjoyable read. The story will ring true to anyone working in a process that encourages starting an overwhelming quantity of work as deadlines become ever harder to hit.
This third edition finishes with an essay by Eli Goldratt that compares Lean, TPS and "Drum Buffer Rope" as different applications of the same core Lean concepts.
I read the Goal from the perspective of leading change in a service delivery department, where I've used the Kanban Method to guide improvements to our delivery. The goal was the initial inspiration for David Anderson's book Kanban for Successful Evolutionary Change, and it was interesting to read from that perspective.
