Thought I’d throw out a list of the current reading queue. I have two books in process, another in waiting:
- Implementing Lean Software Development: From Concept to Cash – Currently Reading
- Lean Thinking : Banish Waste and Create Wealth in Your Corporation, Revised and Updated – On Hold Until #1 completed.
- The Toyota Way: 14 Management Principles From The World’s Greatest Manufacturer – In queue.
- Fearless Change: Patterns for Introducing New Ideas – In queue
Sensing a pattern here? I’m really intriqued by the lean way of thinking. The nice thing about it is as you read all of this stuff, you realize that they are pretty much the principles behind any agile method of development. The reading thus far has given me a good base of principles necessary to make sense out of the methodologies. There is something to be said about knowing the “why” behind what you are doing.
I’m sure there will be more to write about this later. One thing I will say: My brain hurts.
