Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

People and organizations constantly struggle with the pace of change and limited resources. This book narrates important lessons on how people and organizations can win in today’s competitive and ever changing environment through short stories sharing experiences of an apprentice in an auto workshop, who learns the various types of optimizations, and who later expands these optimizations in his corporate job. The optimizations draw upon principles from Lean.

This book expresses the importance of short review cycles that support a shift in behaviors and habits through numerous parallels drawn from an auto workshop and later at a corporate culture.

Human behaviors are used to understand what we need to do in order to make us all better performers. When we start to measure those behaviors we start to see our wasteful habits and start to understand what we need to alter or cut out completely. The Apprentice and The Project Manager will help the reader identify these and similar challenges they are sure to face in their professional fields, even outside of technology. This book will enable the reader to get started on a journey to develop an Agile Mindset that is critical for survival of today’s leaders and organizations within or outside of technology.

1.0 de 5 estrelas Save your time, save your money and skip this. It's not useful for agile or project management. 12 de dezembro de 2014

Save your time, save your money and skip this. It's not useful for agile or project management.

This is the first bad review I’ve written for a book. I bought this book because of the positive reviews, but this is not a useful book. It's probably 6,000 words long, and tells a hard-to-believe story—a set of anecdotes—of a person who used to be a mechanic and now is a project manager for a candy factory. The anecdotes are supposed to weave a metaphor of good project management, but they don't make a coherent narrative, and more importantly, I don't feel like there are any useful lessons in this book. The lessons in the book are either self evident, or so bizarrely elliptical that it's hard to make sense of (see the tweets below).
The main points of the book are:
- Don’t agree to do more work than you have the capacity to complete
- Examine your failures so you can do a better job next time
- Don’t do work at a net loss
These conclusions are not unique, nor are they presented in a truly engaging or compelling way.

At the beginning of each chapter, the author offers a series of profound nuggets of truth that he suggests you tweet. I suggest you don't. You be the judge:
"Innovation by repetition!"
"Demand is a double edged sword. If you're not mindful of it, you'll lose your competitive advantage."
"People who abuse their administrative power will harm the entire company. Your team will show you value"
And a choice quote:
"Unfortunately, waste causes more waste than we can imagine"

From a publishing standpoint, it needs heavy editing. The layout is rudimentary, grammar is off, and idioms are misused. I don't believe the author was ever a mechanic (e.g. brakes don't get “low on oil"). The lessons about demand responsiveness need to be palpable and believable to translate into useful take homes for project management. And I just don't believe them. Just like I don't believe all the positive reviews of this book.

I really enjoyed this book. I think the explanation and introduction to some key Agile and Lean concepts is very well done and should be easily accessible for someone new to Agile. My favorite part is the section on Finance. Including this was an excellent idea as that is a topic which is (unfortunately) often overlooked.

It didnt inspire any new perspective to productivity or management. Almost like recap of the existing management tips .. Maybe my expectation was too high.

Kamal Manglani does a great job introducing Agile concepts in a tangible, easy to understand way. Hard-to-grasp concepts are boiled down to simple analogies that really show the reader how these 'common sense' concepts can be applied in every day situations.

I highly recommend this e-book.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Great primer for MBA students & should be read by ANYONE who cares about org change management and continuous improvement 23 de março de 2014

Through storytelling, readers can learn how keen observation, attention to detail, simple small measurements, and willingness to learn are important to any business, small or large. The main character, an IT Project Manager applies what he learned as a teenager when he was an Apprentice auto shop worker. He gives examples on how small lessons can be scaled to solve large problems where he currently works for a candy business.

Illustrated artfully and in detail, someone with the discipline of Project Management, and an agile mindset, can protect a business portfolio's gold nuggets (i.e. projects) from being squandered by any organization bounded by waste, and still deliver value. The success or failure of a business can also be determined by the level of courage and discipline to continuously attend to the right priorities while focusing on improvements to throughput of an organization's value chain.
