Actionable Agile Metrics Review - Part 1: Flow and Predictability - The TameFlow Chronologist


Dan Vacanti, well known in the Kanban community, has just published the book Actionable Agile Metrics for Predictability, An Introduction. This is an amazing book which is very much relevant to TameFlow. I would have no hesitation to recommend this book as mandatory reading to anybody who is interested in TameFlow.

I can’t wait to get this book and dive into it!! Thanks for letting us know about it!


Yes, Bob, it’s a worthwhile read. A very good complement to all things we’ve learned from TOC. I find it of great benefit to use DBR buffer management to check the health of an entire work package, and the single item focus that comes out of Dan’s book. Similar signals, but with different focus. One enhances the other.
