Why this book?

Too much energy goes to waste, because great ideas don't come to life due to inefficient processes. Teams waste their motivation in endless meetings, product owners fight with details instead of pursuing a grand vision. And everyone seems to believe it had to be that way. It doesn't! Better ways exist and they work in practice.
