Summary

As companies evolve to adopt, integrate, and leverage software as the defining element of their success in the 21st century, a rash of processes and methodologies are vying for their product teams' attention. In the worst of cases, each discipline on these teams - product management, design, and software engineering - learn a different model. This short, tactical book reconciles the perceived differences in Lean Startup, Design Thinking, and Agile software development by focusing not on rituals and practices but on the values that underpin all three methods.

Don't buy this audiobook. Buy the eBook.

This is also mostly for people new to the three practices. I like it but didn't think it was that helpful. It is very short and a good overview.

It's brief. Now go read Sense and Reapond

I liked this overview. I consume different media types and this audio version offers a simple review of these methods. It's not intended to be a deep dive. Rather, it's brevity is a super practical teaser to Gothelf's thinking.

My favorite line.... Customers don't care about your approach, they care about great products and services that solve meaningful problems in effective ways.

Good idea for a book, bad execution.

This book is remarkably short and lacks substance. While the idea of comparaing and finding a synthesis of all three methdologies, the reality is that the book falls short of explaining the how. All in all, great idea but there is not enough material in the book to warrant its price tag and the idea of synthesis is not in depth enough for anyone who is already in the field currently.

Great quick read

No silver bullets here, but nice quick listen about some ways to reconcile these various frameworks/techniques
