A model for understanding Agile, Kanban, and Software Craftsmanship culture
An outline of key adoption and transformation approaches
A framework to help guide when to use these these approaches with your organization
Real-life case studies of what has worked and what hasn’t

Shines the light on so many dysfunctional behaviors. Buy this book alone for the explanation of the difference between 'adoption' vs 'transformation' that it provides. No survival guide should be an epic; and this one is short and to the point, give it to your leadership have them read it on the night before a cultural workshop. It is the road map an organization needs to plot a course out of their unique situation. Use this book as the guide, collaborate on your intentions and options. Use the copious links and references for deeper understanding. Get everyone aligned on the terms and you have a great chance of understanding your direction forward. I enjoyed the model drawings and explanations, wonderful illustrations. I was surprised by the inclusion of the 'Alternate Views and Opinions' section - great courage Michael.
