Faster than you ever thought possible
This is NOT a technical book. It doesn't mention "Agile". It doesn't ram techniques and practices down your throat. There are other books for that.
Rolling Rocks downhill is a book about delivering software projects ON TIME or, if you choose, EARLY. It's a book about building quality in and then running as FAST as you can.Johanna Rothman, author of Jolt Productivity award-winning Manage It! Your Guide to Modern, Pragmatic Project Management:
"Maybe one of your teammates or someone in management has the bright idea that maybe transitioning to agile or lean will help. Maybe it does in some small way. But, it’s not enough. You’re on a death march, iteration by iteration. Or, with your board, you can see that you are making progress, but you’re not working “fast enough.”
Or, you’re not delivering what your customers need. You’re still trying to “do it all.” Why? Because it takes you forever to release anything.
You know there’s another piece to this. You just don’t know what.
You need to read Clarke Ching’s Rolling Rocks Downhill."
