Date: 01-12-16

Title: The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement - 30th Anniversary Edition

Author: Eliyahu M. Goldratt, Jeff Cox

Duration: 12 hrs

Review: The only thing that matters is the constraint.  Defend the constraint This book right here, this book is THE WAY...this is the first methodology that can be described as a true ancestor of Lean Development...for anyone who is trying to help a team build complex stuff.  Especially stuff that requires a complex production line. Hint: software  systems pretty much fit the definition of stuff, the building of which, requires a complex production line. If you don't believe me just check out your Jira workflow diagrams for stories, tasks, bugs etc.  Anyway, I loved this book.
