If you have ever wondered why Agile transformations result in lackluster outcomes, this is the book for you. In fact, I would go so far as to say that this book should be REQUIRED READING FOR ALL AGILE COACHES!
Even though I already knew Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints, I don’t practice its tenets every day and don’t have its principles internalized as I should.
That is about to change because this book has breathed new life into what I should have already been doing. The Theory of Constraints is all about making changes that are effective improvements, and avoiding changes seem to make sense but have no impact (or even make things worse).
This book provides one of the clearest presentations of the Theory of Constraints and the crucial role it plays in the success of scaled Agile implementations.
Nothing gets me more excited than realizing that half of what I’ve been doing has been counterproductive because now I can fix it.
Knowledge is power!
