  1. Toni SCRUMptious

    I give a five star review if I believe that I will re-read or repeatedly refer back to a book and I am likely to recommend it to colleagues as essential reading.Similar to other reviewers, my initial thought was annoyance that this is such a physically small book, but then I remembered the famous quote, “If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter”, often attributed to Mark Twain; it takes skill to write succinctly. Whilst I enjoy reading a book cover to cover it’s not for everyone, but a 30 minute commitment might make it more likely to actually be read by many more people.After ten years working in the “Agile” space, I found myself caught between various methodologies, all of which were surprisingly similar in underlying philosophy. I was experiencing a certain “identity crisis” and unease about what was happening around me, all of this, Gothelf neatly describes in the initial 4.5 pages.After a quick description of each of the three “processes” in the title, along with pros and cons, he goes on to recommend ten core practices with the aim of “highly-productive, creative, balanced teams”.He emphasises that working from a “recipe” is a good place to start, but it must be allowed to morph to the needs of each unique organisational context.This booklet has spring-boarded me off to read a book on Design Thinking that’s been on my shelf for a while.

    Ce n’est pas un guide des 3 méthodes Lean, Agile et Design Thinking, plutôt un résumé comparatif, qui se lit vite.

    A very interesting perspective on the interplay of three different methodologies. I would have liked a few more examples or anecdotes.

  16. A VARELA

    I’ve worked in organisations which have worked with all three of these approaches. Sometimes in a monotheistic manner, sometimes not. Sometimes successfully, sometimes not. What I like with this (satisfyingly concise) book is that not only does it point out the theological contradictions between the approaches, but also practical ways in which they can be combined for good results.I usually roll my eyes when I hear someone (often in sales) say “yes we do ‘x’, but our own version” as it often means that they apply what’s convenient and pay lip service to the rest. This book gives actionable advice on how to not only spot the weaknesses in these methodologies but how to implement them together for a better overall result.

    Short book with good insights. If you have experience with these methodologies is even better. Recommend it for sure, definitely.
