Publisher's Summary

A business parable about agile project management that never mentions the word "agile".
What if you could easily get 80% of the benefits of agile without changing how you build software?
Bob Billington has a problem: he's about to lose his job because the economy has taken a sudden nosedive, taking the big project he is working on with it. Bob, a natural-born problem solver, starts asking questions, the first being, "What does it take for a project to be commercially viable in a recession?"
Bob's questions surprise his bosses and his customers.... Why does a programmer need to know about business? The answers surprise everyone....

The book ended...

Just when story started. Just because they figured out a new contract model doesn’t mean they have successfully executed the strategy. There is a priori assumption of success and now I have to read Clarke Ching’s other book. This one should be available for free

Awful Narrator

Apart from the terrible narration, this audiobook is not up to the standard of the authors previous work. A disappointment.

Well Done Clarke...
