Visual Book Notes
I consolidate information. It’s just what I do. Kinda crazy, ha. Download and share my visual-one-page-summary-book-notes to reference the high points for these books. I am copyright free.
you already know how to be great
Yes you do.
I read You Already Know How To Be Great a a while back and for some reason it skipped my visual-one-page-summary-book-notes making process.
But I gotcha this time.
I wonder why more of the world isn't using this simple, effective, can-be-applied-anywhere-anytime approach? I sure will.

When was the last time, on your work project, the team explicitly decided what n o t to do?
Read The Laws Of Subtraction by Matthew E. May to learn how to turn your brain on, by turning it off more often, to increase creativity and effectivity in this age of excess everything, everywhere.
The noise is deafening, the signal weak. Strengthen yours.

Written 30 years ago... The Goal presents concepts of Lean and The Theory Of Constraints through a novel-like narrative.
While the book describes the story in terms of lean manufacturing... it's extremely applicable today and in most fields of business, like: software development, health care and education.
If you read the book, have a look at the visual-notes to re-inspire your memory banks. If you haven't... consider these notes a primer, then get and read this one.
Either way... enjoy.

Decided (finally) to redo this visual one pager. Personal Kanban is such an important and useful book... I could no longer look at my first take of this. Made this to be mo readable and perdy. At least, I think so.

this is lean
Maximizing efficiency of resources is not optimal. WTF, you say? You heard me right. Don't take my word for it. Read and learn about how to focus on F L O W and where to position the camera. What? You'll see. Meanwhile...visualize flow, baby. I do.

succeeding with agile governance
You may be 'doing agile'...are the others around you doing their part.
Agile is not a vacuum sealed approach, pieces of it must be supported across disciplines, across cadences, and coordinated with decisions.
Another reason to DO less to COMPLETE more.
