Lead with speed

Now Available! 

The speed of the business is the speed of the leader. It’s time to up your game.

One of the most important questions a leader can ask themselves is: “How do I get my teams, my organization to move faster?”

This problem of speed is often disguised by other symptoms, such as “my projects cannot make an accurate prediction of when they will be done” or the stated need of “my teams need to take more risks.” The real need is not reckless risk-taking that will lead to even more problems and finishing even later. The real need is for speed.

Fire up your team, power your engines of development, and make your organization soar with Alan Willett’s LEAD WITH SPEED.

“In reviewing all the software development methodologies and data through the years, it is obvious that some methods stand out above others. Unfortunately, sometimes the methodologies obscure the guiding principles under them.  In Alan Willett’s Lead With Speed these principles, or as Alan calls them, Immutable Laws of Speed, are made absolutely clear.  Read this book and learn the laws. When you master them, you will master the speed of your teams.”   Capers Jones
