Customers recommend

This book is fantastic for absolute beginners.…Sweigert has an uncanny ability to zero in on the things that confuse complete beginners (and which are usually ignored by most introductory books).... Even if you don't need to automate anything, I'd recommend the first part of this book as the very best way for complete beginners to get into Python.… — Cothran
…Excellent for beginners. — Catzlady Boutique Poshmark
…Great book with tons of detail and helpful insights to a beginner — Capucine Oliver

From the Back Cover

Lean Development and Agile Methods for Large-Scale Products: Key Thinking and Organizational Tools for Sustainable Competitive Success Increasingly, large product-development organizations are turning to lean thinking, agile principles and practices, and large-scale Scrum to sustainably and quickly deliver value and innovation. However, many groups have floundered in their "practice-oriented "adoptions. Why? Because without a deeper understanding of the "thinking tools "and profound "organizational redesign "needed, it is as though casting seeds on to an infertile field. Now, drawing on their long experience leading and guiding large-scale lean and agile adoptions for large, multisite, and offshore product development, and drawing on the best research for great team-based agile organizations, internationally recognized consultant and best-selling author Craig Larman and former leader of the agile transformation at Nokia Networks Bas Vodde share the key thinking and organizational tools needed to plant the seeds of product development success in a fertile lean and agile enterprise. Coverage includes
  • Lean thinking and development combined with agile practices and methods
  • Systems thinking
  • Queuing theory and large-scale development processes
  • Moving from single-function and component teams to stable cross-functional cross-component Scrum feature teams with end-to-end responsibility for features
  • Organizational redesign to a lean and agile enterprise that delivers value fast
  • Large-scale Scrum for multi-hundred-person product groups
In a competitive environment that demands ever-faster cycle times and greater innovation, applied lean thinking and agile principles are becoming an urgent priority. "Scaling Lean & Agile Development "will help leaders create the foundation for their lean enterprise-and deliver on the significant benefits of agility. In addition to the "foundation "tools in this text, see the companion book ""Practices for Scaling Lean & Agile Development: Large, Multisite, and Offshore Product Development with Large-Scale Scrum ""for complementary "action "tools.
