To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We all know that we are constantly being interrupted during working hours, seems we can't ever finish anything meaningful, but why? This book explains in a nice way the time thieves, makes a case for flow metrics. 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.
I wish I had something like this where I could articulate the reasons for delay in a way that everyone could visualise and understand. It is so easy to say Yes but difficult to say No without being able to say and this is why I can't do what you asked unless I have your permisssion to stop work on what I have planned and do this instead.
Some great examples of optimal resource utilisation and how to limit WIP. I love the quote 'Stop starting and Start Finishing'
Practical and fun to read with lots of examples. Great for beginners and ever for more experimented people, as we can use it as easy reference material. Excellent for Product Owners, Agile Coaches and anyone interested in making work visible and efficient.
I really liked the topic and its implication to individuals and teams. Loved the done and done done idea to consider completion and acceptance during planning and execution. However, the narration was tedious due to excessive repetition. I think the same message could have been delivered in half the amount of space. Overall a good book for folks interested in time/project management/planning.
