Confession 2: I've known Tom and Mary Poppendieck, the authors, for about a decade now, so I am biased. I love the way they think, I love the way they write. Their first book changed my career direction (and, consequently, my salary). So, I'm biased.
This book is great. It's different to what I expected though, compared to their previous work - it's less hands on, more conceptual and high-level. It reminds of the interesting parts of my MBA, but better written, and more focused on product development. I'm familiar with many of the ideas in the book (because I read the same books, talk to the same people, and watch the same videos as the authors) but what they've done so well is to take a vast number of ideas & concepts & tools, summarise them, then group them into themes. The book isn't cheap so I recommend you take a look at the sample or look inside at the index.
My favourite story is Doug Deitz's, from GE Healthcare. Even if you don't buy this book, you really should google is TEDX talk from San Jose. I'm a gnarly old engineer, at heart, and I teared up.
This new book takes Lean to another level... do we need this feature in the first place? If not it doesn't get build, or designed or even thought about. This book ties in other great works such as Thinking, Fast and Slow Paperback by Daniel Kahneman.
I recommend this book for anyone who wants to be Leaner in their work practices, especially in the Software World
As this book lays out, clearly. Go learn....
