About the Author

Why I wrote this book

I observe many projects on the brink of failure, or at least wasting resources, because they overlook the key technique that has been pivotal in the agile software domain. This oversight is largely due to the valuable insights being obscured by technical jargon, making them inaccessible to those not versed in the language of software development.

Having personally experienced the transformative power of these techniques, I was inspired to share this knowledge widely. My mission is to make these insights accessible to everyone involved in organizing work.

After training and directly supporting thousands of managers, I decided to compile all the best explanations and tools in this book. To ensure broad applicability, I’ve enriched it with detailed, illustrated examples showcasing how to effectively slice work across diverse sectors: commercial, non-profit, and public.

How this knowledge impacts organizations and people

Anton's book is beautifully written with real-world examples that will inspire you to think differently about the possible ways you can change the structure of your work and deliver value more quickly.

I was responsible for co-founding a new countrywide government institution in an environment of high volatility. Anton's knowledge helped me to set up more flexible and adaptable structures. I am glad to see it condensed into a book.
