Book List for getting started with Agile, Lean, Scrum, and XP
A good start can be “Kanban“. This book is specific to software, but a good start.
The high performing teams come from Scrum, and the seminal book on Scrum is: Agile Project Management with Scrum.
Then, we use Extreme Programming, the seminal work on that is: Extreme Programming.
All of these are merely implementations of the 12 principles of Agile Development, applied to non-software centric applications, which can be read here. That’s it, there are just 12 principles in all of this. Scrum lets us run our teams with minimum process overhead via clearly defined rolls and responsibilities. XP let’s us solve problems quickly. Kanban gives us the minimum process overhead to maximize flow, and minimize any time spent doing anything but creatively solving problems.
There is a bit more, too, but that is all the essentials, and yes it needs to be collated into a comprehensive practice so it can be more easily re-created around the world. Hopefully someone can help us tell the story in a concise book, and hopefully a set of concise YouTube videos.
