This book chapter’s are ‘Monday’ to ‘Friday’: I encourage you to read this book in just 5 days as I did, and trust me, it will take you no more than 30 minutes each chapter. You can start today!
Based on the well-known design thinking mantra build-test-repeat, ‘Sprint’ is one of these books that empowers yourself with straight-forward yet smart techniques to end up testing with real customers on Friday a solution that started to be hinted on Monday. Even more, it includes checklists and tips for the sessions’ facilitators too. A sip:
‘It’s what work should be about (not wasting time in endless meetings, then seeking camaraderie in a team-building event at a bowling alley) but working together to build something that matters to real people. This is the best use of your time. This is a sprint.’
When problems arise don’t run in circles, go all in for a great sprint!
