-Excellent book if you are just starting out down the path of agile. Provides an excellent overview of not only base practices of Scrum, XP, Lean and Kanban, but also offers up the values and principles behind the approaches, and how you can use these tools to address your specific issues. In particular for me, it was an excellent refresher on these basics (see [[principles_and_values|Values and Principles]]).+Excellent book if you are just starting out down the path of agile.

 +In particular for me, it was an excellent refresher on these basics (see [[principles_and_values|Values and Principles]]). ​The core idea is that if you apply the practices of agile you will probably end up with "​better-than-not-doing-it results",​ but to really get improvement you have to really understand the principles and values driving the practices (see [[what_does_a_scrum_master_do_all_day|What Does a Scrum Master Do All Day?]])

 +===== The Various Boards =====

 +Agile is full of boards - workflow, task, value stream etc. I though the discussion on the various types of boards was useful.
 +
 +"The difference is that value stream mapping is a Lean thinking tool to help you understand the system that you work in; workflow mapping is how the Kanban method determines the actual steps that each work item goes through."​ "A typical kanban board only shows those larger work items, not the individual tasks. And while the task board only “sees” the work items when they’re To Do, In Progress, or Done, the kanban board will have a bigger picture."​
