Mike adds what the Kanban community calls the human side and it is a very important complement to understanding what Kanban ultimately does to organizations.
I read this book a while back... should've written this short review earlier.
For all of its power and popularity, David Anderson's 'Kanban' blue book is built around case studies. It's great for explaining why kanban works. But not everyone can easily synthesize from it how they can get started applying this approach.
By contrast, Mike's book begins with a simple and easily accessible guide for implementing the basics of a kanban system. It then builds on that to explain how kanban relates to the best of modern management thinking like Agile, Lean, Theory of Constraints, and Systems Thinking.
It provides useful summaries of each, as well as recommended reading for deeper understanding. This should be extremely helpful for those who might otherwise see all these ideas as mutually exclusive - and confusing.
This is a great addition to the modern management literary canon. Well worth your time.
