Some elements went into much deeper detail here and it was great to get a better understanding of these elements I've been reading about elsewhere.

I like all of Daniel Sibbert's books. I am a person who communicates visually whenever I can and have since I could hold a crayon. Not as terrific as his first, but still really good.

Don't agree with everything, but I have some good insights!
I really need to rethink everyday how we can make work more visible.
It's all about make things easier to see....
