Hva PVVere synes om boken

God bok om lean software techniqes [einarr]

Dette var den første boken jeg leste om «lean software development techniques», men det er fortsatt en av de jeg har hatt mest nytte av. Den inneholder mange av de viktigste elementene i denne læreretningen, men prøver ikke å tvinge på deg en bestemt måte å gjøre ting på. Tanken er mer at man skal tenke gjennom hvordan man gjør ting, med en rekke eksempler på hvordan det gjør hverdagen din enklere. Og den er ikke så tørr og buzzwordish som reklameteksten kan tyde på.
