YOGURT for Agile & Lean Culture

Discovered thru Practice, Inspired by Nature

About the Book

Most of my arguments are based on my own adaptation of Musashi style:  

“Agile & Lean practices must be understood as though the practitioner himself had discovered them from his own mind. Learn about all of them, but never become fond of any.”

My purpose is to make you aware of the many facets of Agile & Lean practices. With that attitude you may analyse any situation, and decide on the best procedures to adapt and apply accordingly. What I hope to do is help you think about workplace culture with more practical and natural ways.

My first book, “Yogurt for Agile Development”, has been floating inside the vast ocean of the virtual world. More than two years have passed since its first publication, though it still feels like yesterday! The feedback I got so far, and with many new experiences accumulated on, delightfully pulled me into writing regularly. 

These efforts have eventually led to the realisation of this new book, which I’m delighted to share with you. 

To hurry things is a poisonous attitude of our century, thereby I’ve tried not to. Instead, I’ve worked to get at it slowly, carefully and thoroughly, always by maintaining a close connection with the experiences.

Why authorship? 

Because knowledge is more valuable when you share it. Because learn-teach-share is good for the soul, and it leads to growth altogether, but mainly because... Sharing is Caring! 


This book contains 4 (four) chapters with subsections related to Toolbox, Compass, Storyline, and Experiential. While each chapter can be regarded and read as self-contained notebook, still they are all interconnected.

    >> 1.1 Finding the Direction 

    >> 1.2 Overview and Terminology 

    >> 1.3 Caveats: Beware of the Downsides

    >> 2.2 Common Language as a Contextual Medium

If this book inspires you, how delightful would that make the humble author myself. 

Please read with patience, and remember to share your feedback.
