9780990559108: Going Lean: A Personal Story about Weight Loss with an Agile Framework

An agile process is a journey, not a destination. In Going Lean, Jochen (Joe) Krebs uses his personal weight loss story as a metaphor to illustrate such a journey. Unlike a case study, he introduces agile principles in a practical, real-world approach with a topic everyone can relate to. His story takes us through a proven process pattern, which forces common sense decision-making. As a result, he lost 20kg (44lbs) in only 20 weeks. Going Lean covers the full spectrum of an agile project, from start to finish. It makes connections between a personal story and potentially any projects in small, medium or large enterprises. The story serves as an example for everyone interested in how the principles may map to topics such as financial planning, home renovation or starting-up any type of franchise. Joe wrote a short and entertaining story to encourage more leaders and executives to get started.
