Author Robert Morley, FCMIabout this book: "Prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future" said Nils Bohr the Danish physicist who made foundational contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum theory for which he received the Nobel Prize. This book is about why western culture businesses use traditional planning methods in all their business projects and why these methods don't work. Our western cultural influences have fostered an obsession with planning and lead us to assume that the best plans are ones containing the most detail. Our infatuation with plans is such that we often place more value in adhering to planned actions and timescales than the results. The book introduces agile and described why it is a far better approach, and describes the wide cultural benefits to an organisation that come about when they adopt agile techniques.

The book also describes in detail how a company should go about adopting agile and warns that the reader will have to remain aware of the negative cultural influences at play in their own company; and gives the reader a tool for measuring the scale of the cultural challenge they may face.
