Reading list for 3D Agile

We’re currently doing a 2 day training session in what we call “3D Agile”.

The 3 “dimensions” of 3D Agile are:

1. Is the way we are working helping us, and the rest of the organization, make the right decisions and reach our outcome goals in an efficient way? If not, what needs to change?

2. Is our understanding of the customer (or whatever system we are trying to improve) correct or are we basing our decisions on the wrong assumptions? If so, what do we need to learn?

3. Do we have a clear picture of where we are going and what we want to achieve and how that is aligned with the goals of the organization? If not, how do we course correct or make our progress towards our goals clearer?

I just wanted to share the books we mention in the training material since they are all good reads. Here’s the list:

  • The Mythical Man Month, Frederick P. Brooks
  • How to Measure Anything, Douglas W. Hubbard
  • Pelles Ficklampa, Jan Lööf
  • Thinking in Bets, Annie Duke
  • The Power of Moments, Chip & Dan Heath
  • Viral Loop, Adam L Penenberg
  • Purple Cow, Seth Godin
  • Traction, Gabriel Weinberg
  • The Brain Audit, Sean D’Souza
  • The Lean Startup, Eric Ries
  • The Phoenix Project, Gene Kim et al
  • Measure What Matters, John Doerr
  • Radical Focus, Christina Wodtke

Let me know if you are interested in 3D Agile and would like to do a training at your company! Then you will understand how the childrens book “Pelles ficklampa” (Pelles torch light) and The Lean Startup are connected.
