Kanban seems like a really good methodology. It even got me thinking that maybe you don’t need to have iterations to be Agile. However, I really didn’t like this book at all. Everyone says that when you explain something you should use lots of real world examples. David J. Anderson took this to far. In the book there are only a few examples that he uses, but he uses them over and over again in far too much detail and it gets boring. I like real world examples, but I want the mechanics of a process. The book doesn’t cover that until several chapters in. When it does, it’s good and I really learnt a lot about Kanban. I finished the book out of pure stubbornness, but I couldn’t recommend it. Do learn about Kanban, but find another resource.
