Agile puts emphasis on establishing teams and giving them whatever they need to do their work. Teams will face problems in their daily work. Agile calls these problems impediments: anything that slows people down and needs to be dealt with.

This is the first book specifically about dealing with impediments using agile thinking with problem-solving 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, project leader, consultant, coach, adviser, and trainer.

This book is for agile teams, Scrum masters, tech leads, 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.

    Impediments. Problems. Nobody wants them. You probably can’t avoid them. They’re often no fun to deal with. They may push you into difficult conversations/discussions. This book is a very useful resource for figuring out how to navigate them. Ben has collected a wide range of experience-based advice that you will find helpful.

  2. Thomas Cagley

    Teams find problems that impact their ability to deliver value. The question is, what then? Ben Linders steps into the gap between finding a problem and living happily ever after with his new book, Problem? What Problem? This book directly addresses problem-solving at a level that agile teams can use, right now!

  3. David Spinks

    When working in an agile way, problems and impediments are quickly revealed. But what then? What are we actually supposed to do about it? With years of experience in the software development industry, Ben Linders provides a go-to resource in Problem? What Problem? that is full of practical advice for individuals, teams and organisations seeking strategies to deal with their problems.
