Making Work Visible: Exposing Time Theft to Optimize Work & flow Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
If someone stole your wallet, you'd notice it. So why don't people notice when they are robbed of something much more valuable than their wallet - time?
Today's workers are drowning: nonstop requests for time, days filled to the brim with meetings, and endless nights spent heroically fixing the latest problems. This churn and burn is creating a workforce constantly on the edge of burnout.
In this timely book, IT time management expert Dominica DeGrandis reveals the real crime of the century - time theft, one of the most costly factors impacting enterprises in their day-to-day operations.
Through simple solutions that make work visible, DeGrandis helps people round up the five thieves of time and take back their lives with time-saving solutions. Chock-full of exercises, takeaways, real-world examples, and an easy-going writing style, readers will quickly learn effective practices to create high-performing workflows within an organization.
The technology world - and indeed the whole business world - is moving at a pace faster than ever before, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Instead of consigning ourselves to the pressure cooker of the modern world, it's time to elevate how we work. It's time to level up our game. It's time to make work visible.

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'
