Books on Leanpub in Progress

Second Edition: Fully Revised and Extended!

What Drives Quality explores how quality plays a role in all of the software development activities. It takes a deep dive into quality by listing the relevant factors of development and management activities that drive the quality of software products. It provides a lean approach to quality by analyzing the full development chain from customer requests to delivering products to users.

I’m aiming this book at software developers and testers, architects, product owners and managers, agile coaches, Scrum masters, project managers, and operational and senior managers who consider quality to be important.

A book on quality should be practical. It should help you, the reader of this book, to improve the quality of your software and deliver better products. It should inspire you and give you energy to persevere on your quality journey. What drives quality tries to do just that, and more.

This is a book about continuous improvement in agile software development. Continuous improvement is what makes agile work. It’s at the heart of agile, whether you use Scrum, Kanban or any other agile framework.

The goal of this book is to make you aware of the importance of continuous improvement, explore how it is engrained in agile software development, and provide suggestions that you can use in your daily work to improve continuously and increase your organization’s agility.

The book is a work in progress. You can buy the eBook for a discounted price as long as the book is being updated to learn more about continuous improvement. Thanks to Leanpub you will automatically receive all future versions for free :-).

Feedback on this book is very much appreciated. Please sent your suggestions, comments, ideas or questions to BenLinders@gmail.com.

Coming up: A book that deeply dives into facilitating agile retrospective to help you make your agile retrospectives more valuable.

This is not an everyday book about agile. It’s a book for people who truly believe that agile retrospectives help to find tune and continuously improve their agile way of working.
