Lean Enterprise: How High Performance Organizations Innovate at Scale Hardcover – 20 January 2015
How well does your organization respond to changing market conditions, customer needs, and emerging technologies when building software-based products? This practical guide presents Lean and Agile principles and patterns to help you move fast at scale―and demonstrates why and how to apply these methodologies throughout your organization, rather than with just one department or team.
Through case studies, you’ll learn how successful enterprises have rethought everything from governance and financial management to systems architecture and organizational culture in the pursuit of radically improved performance. Adopting Lean will take time and commitment, but it’s vital for harnessing the cultural and technical forces that are accelerating the rate of innovation.
Book features :
- Discover how Lean focuses on people and teamwork at every level, in contrast to traditional management practices
- Approach problem-solving experimentally, by exploring solutions, testing assumptions, and getting feedback from real users
- Lead and manage large-scale programs in a way that empowers employees, increases the speed and quality of delivery, and lowers costs
- Learn how to implement ideas from the DevOps and Lean Startup movements even in complex, regulated environments

The government should fly planes over London dropping this book onto the streets.
A heart lifting guide to transforming Victorian, bureaucratic, hierarchical organisations into innovative, producers of digital experiences that delight their customers and empower the workforce.
A practical guide covering culture, history of Lean, the three horizons of a product, validation and MVP, measurements, feedback loops, flow and cycle time, innovation accounting, analytics, tearing down silos, impact mapping, continuous improvement, continuous integration, test automation, kanban, cost of delay, blue-green deployment, feature flags, lean UX, safe cultures, a/b testing, the list goes on and on.
Full of anecdotes and evidence, and levels wonderful criticism at the incumbent graying behemoths with their pathological cultures, so that at least when you fail to make dent you can reap some sense of schadenfreude from their inevitable bankruptcy, or bail out.
As someone dealing with the legacy environment on a daily basis, I would have hoped for some guidance on how this paradigm can integrate with what will necessarily exist in parallel for many years.
But a great insight into the concepts of the new none the less
Well worth reading.
