This is to Kanban what JS the good parts is to JS. Short, to the point, filled with practical advice and useful content to spot the gotchas and every now and then has the occasional humour. I found myself enjoying this as the author foretold and aimed for: I now want to try Kanban.
Book explain what is the board good for and when it's not enough, what are nice metrics to track, what columns to have (and when) and when not to have them... I like here the fact that Kanban is not sold to us like panacea for all ailments but instead it's presented as methodology for process improvement.
