Sample Book Insights:

#1 The revolution is taking place in how organizations are being run. Firms like Apple and Samsung offer devices that can be tailored to meet the individual wants and whims of hundreds of millions of users. Firms like Tesla, Saab, and Ericsson upgrade cars, planes, and networks by delivering new software via the Web.

#2 The new management paradigm is changing the world of work. It allows organizations to thrive in a world of rapid and unpredictable change, and it allows teams, units, and entire enterprises to nimbly adapt and upgrade products and services to meet rapidly changing technology and customer needs with efficiency gains, quality improvements, or even completely new products and services.

#3 The Agile Manifesto, published in 2001, declared that software development requires a reversal of some fundamental assumptions of twentieth-century management. It values individuals and interactions over processes and tools, working software over comprehensive documentation, customer collaboration over contract negotiation and responding to change over following a plan.

#4 The new paradigm has not been easy for traditional managers to understand or implement. They have spent their careers mastering and implementing twentieth-century concepts and practices, and they see that business schools still teach these concepts and practices.
