Lessons in Agile Management

This excerpt is taken from the book ‘Lessons in Agile Management’ and focuses on tribal leadership. The content from the book has been largely taken from David’s Agile Manager blog and has been described as the “the Missing Link in the Evolution of Kanban.” 

Anderson developed the Kanban Method over years spent managing and coaching Agile development teams, at companies such as Sprint, Motorola and Microsoft, by integrating Lean thinking with Agile principles and practices. This compendium of anecdotes and epiphanies tells a very personal story as he shares his journey on the road to Kanban – now a widely accepted and proven method for improving predictability while managing change and risk in organizations worldwide.
