    The Age of Agile: How Smart Companies Are Transforming the Way Work Gets Done (Hardcover)

    More value from less work.

    An unstoppable business revolution is under way – and it is Agile. Companies that embrace Agile Management learn to connect everyone and everything…all the time. They can deliver instant, intimate, frictionless value on a large scale.

    Agile began emerging many decades ago, but truly took off in the software development industry. Sparking dramatic improvements in quality, innovation, and speed-to-market, the Agile movement is now spreading quickly throughout all kinds of companies. It enables a team, a unit, or an enterprise to nimbly adapt and upgrade products and services to meet rapidly changing technology and customer needs. And the process is applicable anywhere-companies don’t need to be born Agile, like Spotify. Even centuries-old Barclays is making the transition and reaping rewards.

    Filled with examples from every sector, The Age of Agile helps readers:

    • Master the three laws of Agile Management (team, customer, network)
    • Embrace the new mindset
    • Overcome constraints
    • Employ meaningful metrics
    • Make the entire organization Agile
    • And more

    With this breakthrough approach, even global giants can learn to act entrepreneurially. Their future depends on it.

    Odds are that as you read this, an iPhone is within reach. But before Steve Jobs introduced us to “the one device,” as he called it, a cell phone was merely what you used to make calls on the go.
    How did the iPhone transform our world and turn Apple into the most valuable company ever? Veteran technology journalist Brian Merchant reveals the inside story you won’t hear from Cupertino-based on his exclusive interviews with the engineers, inventors, and developers who guided every stage of the iPhone’s creation.
    This deep dive takes you from inside One Infinite Loop to 19th century France to WWII America, from the driest place on earth to a Kenyan pit of toxic e-waste, and even deep inside Shenzhen’s notorious “suicide factories.” It’s a firsthand look at how the cutting-edge tech that makes the world work-touch screens, motion trackers, and even AI-made their way into our pockets.
    The One Device is a roadmap for design and engineering genius, an anthropology of the modern age, and an unprecedented view into one of the most secretive companies in history. This is the untold account, ten years in the making, of the device that changed everything.
