Deliver Better Results

About the book

Leader: here is your practical roadmap to product development excellence.

Your development team works hard and achieves some successes. But customer outcomes are less than great, deliveries take too long, pivoting is difficult and costly, and the team is frustrated. The business is never satisfied, and you can never relax.

You’ve tried to improve results using Agile frameworks, Big Tech processes, team empowerment, and modern tools and techniques. Yet real improvement has been limited, slow, or unsustainable.

This book is for you. In it, you’ll discover:

  • A complete picture of what it takes to make meaningful, efficient, and sustainable improvement
  • 10 sequential, incremental, and holistic strategies to optimize value delivery
  • How to implement these strategies in your organization, whether it’s product-oriented or project-oriented, traditional or agile or hybrid, single-team or scaled
  • An easy, process-agnostic, and nontechnical assessment that will show you which strategies to use now

To help you apply everything in your context, the book also includes:

  • Dozens of real-life examples and a complete case study
  • Plain-language advice on people-first leadership, mindset, and systems thinking
  • Group discussion questions for leaders
  • Downloadable summaries and self-assessment questionnaires

Not in this book: idealism, dogma, prescriptions, magic bullets.
