I strongly recommend this book to everyone involved in an Agile (and / or digital) transformation.

You will find many reasons about the fail of transformations such as to take so long time to evaluate business initiatives that the author called Upstream.

Most people is concerned only in the Downstream (or Development) where Scrum can help but without considering the whole big picture or Value Stream Mapping Scrum or Kanban or whatever won't impact in time to market.

Last but not least, the author

A critical book for the ones discussing agile management, praising the usage of words such as sprints, scrum, kanbam and all other "agile therms checklist". It shows the problems in companies when agility is the responsability of the operations teams and points a series of practical solutions in different "flight levels". ...more

Rethinking Agile is a kind of book that makes you reflect on the real meaning of business agility. If you are facing digital transformation issues like faster competitors, customers complain, or accelerate technology change; you must read this work.

Klaus brought that optimizing elements isolated from one another doesn't create agile organizations. Instead, we need to see an organization on different perspectives (strategy, coordination, and operation) or flight levels as he introduced on the boo

Wundervolles kleines Buch! Optisch sehr ansprechend und angenehm zu lesen. Eine case study mit vielen Erklärungen, die auch interessant ist, wenn man die anderen Bücher von Klaus Leopold bereits kennt! :-)

A very light and pragmatic approach into organizing work at different levels in organizations.

However, the text inside illustrations in the kindle version are sometimes hard to read.

All in all, a great work from Klaus!

Beautiful pictures and design decorate a PDF book (the one I bought in Leanpub) that talks about Kanban without talking about Kanban. Klaus has been talking about his brilliant metaphor of Flight Levels for a while and now his thoughts are in a book.
Business Agility and thinking at a higher level than teams is the topic, and he manages to introduce concepts like Pull, Flow Efficiency and Little's Law in an easy way. Visualise, Limit WIP, Feedback Loops.
The story about the hero that came to rescu

This book is relatively short but contains so many good ideas and insights.
I can highly recommend this book to everyone involved or interested in agile working environments.

Leicht verdauliche, angenehm kurze aber dennoch gehaltvolle Darstellung, warum Agilität auf Team oder Umsetzungs-Ebene meist nicht ausreicht - nebst anschaulichen Ansätzen, was zu tun ist, um Agilität auch auf anderen Ebenen (Flight-Level) zu erreichen.

Ich habe das Buch gelesen, weil es mir von einem Scrum-Master als sehr lesenswert empfohlen wurde. Das im Selbstverlag des Autors herausgegebene und in zahlreiche Sprachen übersetzte Buch enthält leider nichts neues. Oberflächliche Dinge werden in einem typischen selbstbeweihräuchernden Werbestil eines Consultants beschrieben, der halt seinen nächsten Gig verkaufen will.

Die Geschichte ist aufgebaut, dass eine Firma bereits zahlreiche Consultants bezahlt hat für einen grösseren Umbauprozess der I

A nice case study about being agile on the right places of the company. The reading is easy and fast, and the ideas presented make much sense in practice. Mind, though, not to copy the case to your own company, ignoring the context. The author himself tells you not to do such a thing. Instead, try to understand the rationale behind the solution presented and check if the principles apply to your context.
I just missed some numbers and sincere appointments of limitations and mistakes the author o

Although the book has pertinent concepts and ideas, I found it too abstract in terms on how to land the concepts, what are the results and where has them been proved to work.

There’s a high level narrative of just one case of business agility, and the shown results are not conclusive.

The flight level part is very theoretical and I couldn’t see how to implement it through the audiobook.

It seems to be all the time criticizing agile transformation approaches but his own approach relativized everythi

Why did our Agile initiative come to a grinding halt ? Why is the velocity tapering off ? Where are the promises of the Agile movement ? Read on and you might find the answers here.
Language is to the point and not repetitive, for those working in large lumbering giants will find a lot relevant here, while getting some tried suggestions to unearth, expose and fix problems with agile initiative to finally deliver the promise of speed.

This is probably the best book you will read on the challenges of Agile adoption and scalation from a business perspective and from a local department perspective in any organization.

It addresses what really matters, what usually goes wrong and how to overcome the roadblocks on the journey.

"Business Agility has nothing to do with Agile Teams."

Co-creando dinámicas propias

Una adaptación muy simple de agilidad a las vivencias reales de un caso particular que nos invita a no seguir modelos al pie de la letra sino a ir co-creando dinámicas propias.

Man merkt dem Autor den starken Bezug zu Kanban an, was allerdings nicht abträglich ist. Sehr bildhaft Agilität in einem Unternehmen erklärt und wie man dort hinkommen kann. Für erfahrene Agilisten ist die Einführung sehr einfach gehalten, aber die folgenden Kapitel ziehen dann inhaltlich an.

Klaus brings up great points of how team’s agility does not equal business agility (among other good points). The book focuses on a case study of a business.

I would give the content 4 stars, the editing brings it down to 3.

Flow efficiency a pivotal parameter for success

Usage of kanban and enhancing flow efficiency forms foundation blocks to enhance business agility. Excellent overview. Needs a re read .

Great book on agile, and re-emphasizes that you should have an agile company, not just an agile tech team.

Short and concise antidote to Agile as a local optimisation. Fleshes out the concepts of Flight Levels, making a useful book to put in front of someone failing to see the big picture.

Business agility is not a tem affair!

Great work from Klaus! In this book he uses one of his consulting experiences as a background for story telling, building from the ground up the necessary building blocks for leaders to understand what business agility is all about.

One of the best Business Agility books

This is a practical book oriented to show tipical problems in companies when get agility delegating the responsability to the teams. This books makes you another sight about the problem from a systemic view point and a serie of practical solutions in different flight levels.

I enjoyed that this made me question some of my fundamental assumptions about how I’ve been using agile. And conclude that I’ve been using it naively. I’m eager to try to put some of his ideas into practice.
