Making Work Visible: Exposing Time Theft to Optimize Workflow Paperback – 1 January 2018
There is a newer edition of this item:
It is about time someone addresses time theft (aka the perfect crime) head on. Not only does Dominica provide a lot of the why behind the forces that cause us to make bad decisions about our time, she also provides ideas of what to do about them. I wish I had this book when I took my first management job!--Julia Wester, Lean Consultant and Blogger at EverydayKanban.com
Many of us wear our busyness as a badge of honor. In Making Work Visible, Dominica DeGrandis shows us how we can make hidden work-in-process visible, to clearly see the effect it has on our ability to get things done. Once we can see it, she dives deep into the hidden aspects of our WIP that steal our time, energy, and productivity, along with strategies for combating each of them. Making Work Visible helps us to take a step back from all that busyness and really see.--Chris Hafley, Chief Revenue Officer, Retrium

I had the pleasure of meeting Dominica when she was referred to me as the best Lean-Agile Operations focused individual around. A referral I treasure and this book substantiates why. Simple, focused, Theory followed by experience followed by examples and helpful exercises. What a great way to learn how to create conversations that matter around the work you are expected to do, are doing, have delivered or want to improve.
As I read the chapter for flow metrics I measured all the flow time and cycle time, calculated the distribution of my team velocity and was able to prove few things that I knew were true but couldn't actually convince nobody. Just for that I think this book deserves a read.
Some great examples of optimal resource utilisation and how to limit WIP. I love the quote 'Stop starting and Start Finishing'
