Publisher's Summary

If someone stole your wallet, you'd notice it. So why don't people notice when they are robbed of something much more valuable than their wallet - time?
Today's workers are drowning: nonstop requests for time, days filled to the brim with meetings, and endless nights spent heroically fixing the latest problems. This churn and burn is creating a workforce constantly on the edge of burnout. 
In this timely book, IT time management expert Dominica DeGrandis reveals the real crime of the century - time theft, one of the most costly factors impacting enterprises in their day-to-day operations.
Through simple solutions that make work visible, DeGrandis helps people round up the five thieves of time and take back their lives with time-saving solutions. Chock-full of exercises, takeaways, real-world examples, and an easy-going writing style, readers will quickly learn effective practices to create high-performing workflows within an organization.
The technology world - and indeed the whole business world - is moving at a pace faster than ever before, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Instead of consigning ourselves to the pressure cooker of the modern world, it's time to elevate how we work. It's time to level up our game. It's time to make work visible.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Six Stars

Loved this book, my only criticism is I wish it didn’t have as much of a tech or development focus, since I’m in a Different industry. But overall superb.

Fantastic read!! This book is really eye opening!

I've already started implementing these practices with great success! Despite some belly-aching, my team is reaping the benefits. Wonderful read!!

Not valuable to an experienced agile practitioner

This is the first book I’ve ever “read” on Audible that I’m giving up on partway through.

The advice and guides in here are extremely basis. “Unplanned work is bad”, “hidden dependencies cause delays”.

It’s very rudimentary and if you’ve ever worked using agile and /or Kansan in any meaningful way then there won’t be much for you in here.

If you’ve never worked with Kanban then this could be useful.

Doesn't work as an audiobook

Didn't finish. Doesn't really work as an audiobook as it feels like an endless description of project management processes which isn't very engaging to listen to but may be OK as a refermence book.
