I’ve published a new version of my book on problem-solving using agile thinking and practices, Problem? What Problem?, on Leanpub. When you buy the book you get all future updates for free.
Agile teams need to be able to handle impediments. This book explores how teams can deal effectively with the problems that will happen in their daily work, using agile thinking and practices.
What’s new in Problem? What Problem?
The book has grown from 43 to 66 pages, I estimate that it’s now 60% complete.
In this new version, much has been changed:
– There’s a new chapter on problem solving and impediments
– The first version of a chapter on handling impediments beyond the team is added
– I added information added about Agile Coaching Tools for impediments
– The chapter dealing with impediments in teams has been revised and extended
– Many tips and case stories have been added
A big thanks to the reviewers of my book. Your feedback helps me to make it a better book

About the book Problem? What Problem?
This is the first book specifically about dealing with impediments using agile thinking and practices. In this book, I explain why dealing with impediments matters and provide approaches to deal effectively with impediments in teams and beyond the teams. I’m also sharing experience stories from my work as a team member, Scrum master, consultant, coach, adviser, and trainer.
I’m aiming this book at agile teams, Scrum masters, agile coaches, consultants, developers and testers, project managers, line managers, and CxOs; basically, anyone who is looking for an effective way to handle impediments or support people in doing so.
The book is based on my experience as a developer, tester, team leader, project manager, quality manager, process manager, consultant, coach, trainer, and adviser in Agile, Lean, Quality and Continuous Improvement. It dives into problem solving and impediments, viewing them from different perspectives and provides ideas, suggestions, practices, and experiences that will help you to become more effective in dealing with impediments.
