About the Book
I've been experimenting with different ways of nurturing Agile & Entrepreneurial culture onto teams, companies, projects... and daily life!
Sequence of events inspired me, I woke up one morning and began taking some notes, in a thinking loudly style... With continuous practice, my notes evolved into a book form on the way.
In May.2012 I've self published the first Yogurt book. Since then I got involved in variety of technologies, experimentations... Thereby, I felt the urge to reflect my new experiences onto Yogurt book, by revisiting, revising and extending the contents.
Though, I was so tired of the books written in "how-to" style! It is funny to see there is still plenty of books claim to teach you the magic recipe. e.g. how-to build Agile teams in 10 steps, how-to become master quickly in 4 steps, etc etc.
"You must understand that there is more than one path to the top of the mountain." ~ Musashi
My intention is neither to provide any kind of ultimate recipe, nor anything like how-to build better teams in 8 steps! On the contrary, all sections are written with passion, just for the sake of sharing knowledge and my humble experiences.
Here we are… the shiny NEW 2013 edition!
- Completely re-designed & reformatted
- Each section has been carefully revised, and extended
- a new Chapter about GAMIFICATION
In this extended edition, we will enjoy the ride with the flavor of Yogurt here and there, talking about this and that…
in 8+ sections:
- 1) People Development
- 2) Agile - Sharp - Transparent
- 3) What - Why - How
- 4) Work is Fun
- 5) Flow
- 6) Harmony in Chaos
- 7) KISMIS
- 8) the WareNinja Test
- +1) GAMIFICATION
This notebook (that’s better than naming it a book) will not give you the ultimate answer to the meaning of Agile Development, neither to life (the answer is surely 42!), but again, finding the ultimate answer is not in scope of that notebook, I doubt the existence of ultimate answer to any question though...
