Book Description

I've been experimenting with different ways of nurturing Agile & Entrepreneurial culture onto teams, companies, projects... and daily life!

Sequence of events inspired me, I woke up one morning and began taking some notes, in a thinking loudly style... With continuous practice, my notes evolved into a book form thru the way.

In May.2012 I've self published the first Yogurt book. Since then I got involved in variety of technologies, experimentations... Thereby, I felt the urge to reflect my new experiences onto Yogurt book, by revisiting, revising and extending the contents.

Though, I was so tired of the books written in "how-to" style! It is funny to see there is still plenty of books claim to teach you the magic recipe.
e.g. how-to build Agile teams in 10 steps, how-to become master quickly in 4 steps, etc etc.

As Musashi said;
"You must understand that there is more than one path to the top of the mountain."

My intention is neither to provide any kind of ultimate recipe, nor anything like how-to build better teams in 8 steps! On the contrary, all sections are written with passion, just for the sake of sharing knowledge and my humble experiences.

Here we are… the shiny NEW edition!
- Completely re-designed & reformatted
- Each section has been carefully revised, and extended
- a new Chapter about GAMIFICATION

In this extended edition, we will enjoy the ride with the flavor of Yogurt here and there, talking about this and that…
in 8+ sections:
1) People Development
2) Agile - Sharp - Transparent
3) What - Why - How
4) Work is Fun
5) Flow
6) Harmony in Chaos
8) the WareNinja Test

Einstein said well; everybody is a genius!
You have the skills, vision and passion to do things in your genuine way...
just believe in yourself and better begin, sooner than later, right now..!

This notebook (that’s better than naming it a book) will not give you the ultimate answer to the meaning of Agile Development, neither to life (the answer is surely 42!), but again, finding the ultimate answer is not in scope of that notebook, I doubt the existence of ultimate answer to any question though...

Note: Blurbs are the invention of my mind, triggered by coffee & cigarettes!
Appended just before the final revision, while approaching dawn of the day... hope you like them :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the roots March 19, 2013
By Arnaud
Format:Kindle Edition
Short, fun and full of good sense. Be aware that you will not find in this writing the usual boring management studies, detailed processes, must follow principles and inflexible rules. It goes straight to the facts, it is a way of life, it shares the keys we all need to happiness and efficiency at work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for Agile Managers as well as developers September 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To get such a book at this price, seems like a Thanksgiving deal. I loved the book's focus on how we can enable an Agile culture within the development teams. I can't agree agree more to the another reviewer that this book can achieve cult status.

4.0 out of 5 stars Potential for cult status May 29, 2012
By Oudeis
Format:Kindle Edition
Let me start by saying that you need a sense of humour to read this book. If you are looking for another manual to provide some expert opinion then this is not it. Let me also say that you may not understand every statement - some may be lost in translation. I still don't get the cat mastering butchery quote - I have literally no idea what it could possibly mean. I am, however, smiling as I write about it. And there are plenty of moments like that. If you've tried to implement agile in a big corporate though, I encourage you to read this book, if only to imagine how much fun it must have been for those present to observe the author (yes, disclaimer, I worked with him and he became a friend) wield his verbal katana to leave all the corpies, and many colleagues, completely nonplussed.

I'll admit I have a vested interest in promoting the book - I really want to see the language of YoGurt enter common corporate parlance.
