I think this book is most valuable for team leads or managers rather than for individual team members. This book serves best as a kind of lit review of various areas of organization theory, management theory, sociology, and software engineering practices. It is dense - I appreciated the short chapters and the exercises at the end of each chapter, but at times the treatment of the underlying techniques or philosophies was, by necessity, cursory, and limited to communicating the principles.

I'm a founder of a 50 people SaaS startup and I loved this book.
I may have a bias as the author also comes from the IT world. I found real-life examples really interesting as well as references to proven methodologies.
The "summary and action" of each chapter is a good wrap up and the format of the book (170 pages) makes it a quick read.

Building on a very solid foundation of modern management (there are references to the best trends in recent years), the author adds stories nicely told to offer us a great book on the agile future of teams and organizations.
This book was selected by the reading club Agile Toulouse, and the debates showed that it was very appreciated.

I recommand this book as it gives some clear recommandations of how make your team more efficient and especially the first one : "start by yourself", as I'm convinced that a key of success
I also appreciate all the detail examples provided, and especially the chapter about gaming ("Play for real") as it is also one of my strong conviction that it works!
And a last thing, this book is well written and easy to read. This is really important for someone like me who is not a good reader at all :)

The author offers us through this book his perception of a constructive transformation fully based on empathy and benevolence.
Through relevant and precisely described tools, anchored by anecdotes or significant recommendations, he offers us beyond a turnkey solution, a set of valuable references.
They allow us to become aware and to make aware that a change without involvement and without starting by ourselves has no chance to achieve anything clever, just by relying on tools or practices.

What a great book! This book is about management, engineering practices, agility. How to change the teams from the inside. I loved the stories, the exercises and the tools described in this book. The book is well documented and references and quotes are very relevant.

There is a lot of kindness in this book.
Like others I find the "summary and action" great to remember in a few lines, a few months later, how to solve some problems.

Strongly the next book!

An excellent resource of ideas for driving change within your teams. There is a lot of talk about high-performing teams out there on the Internet and very limited working practices and ideas on how to actually change your team from average or even underperforming to a high-performing one. Alexis has managed make quite a collection of proven methods with 1st hand sharing of experience and really nice to read language.
I personally love that book and keep it close as it is not one of those books y

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! It is well organized and easy to read. The author is humble and not afraid to use many of his less than successful attempts at solving a particular problem for his examples. Those examples are some of the best parts of the book. It will certainly continue to be a reference book for me and has the added bonus of including pointers to many good resources on product development management and organizations. I will not even ding the author for inventing the mini ...more

Very good book for managers and associates (coachs, even scrum masters)
I liked the wrap-up/summary at the end of each chapter
And I liked the (lot of) serious references (Bonus: direct link to goodreads!)

This book is an easy read with a lot of relevant experiences by the author. It also shares a lot of other great references that discuss the concepts. It must be read by both leaders and members alike as forming a high-impact sustainable teams involves conscious effort from both sides.
