“This delightful book shines a light on both why and how to create agility in your organization. Through stories that are as engaging as they are insightful, author Joshua Kerievsky shows how a culture of fear and a mindless pursuit of efficiency drive out learning and stifle agility. A set of simple, actionable principles provide the way forward.”
