articles-ben-lindersHere’s an overview of the books that I wrote (available in my webshop) and a list of articles by me published in (online) magazines, blogs, etc.

The list also includes article/product releases and updates to books authored by me and chapters contributed to my books by other authors.

My Books

My first book Getting Value out of Agile Retrospectives published in 2014 has become a best-seller. It has been translated in many languages by teams all around the world.

Since then I’ve released two more books: What Drives Quality – 1st edition in 2018 and The Agile Self-assessment Game in 2019. I’m wrote a book about dealing with impediments, released in 2020, called Problem? What Problem? I also published a booklet on Root Cause Analysis and a first draft of the book Continuous Improvement.

All of my books are available in my webshop and in many (online) bookstores.

2019 and onward

I contributed the chapter An Application Fit for Use to the book The Essential Guide to Building Analytic Applications.

Please see the news section for further announcements of article & book publications (too many of them to manually copy them here).


The book Work Together Anywhere by Lisette Sutherland contains several quotes from me.
