The powerful new method for streamlining digital product development, accelerating delivery, and scaling innovation-all in just one year

Whether you're a production manager or CEO, The Lean Tech Manifesto provides what you need to dramatically improve operations and get ahead of the competition. This groundbreaking book written by the celebrated leaders of Theodo shows how to combine Lean strategy with the speed and scale of digital for optimal efficiency. You'll learn how to create a culture of problem solving and knowledge sharing; scale-up-even when faced by a major increase in demand; deploy faster implementation; measure client satisfaction; improve teamwork between product, devs, and ops; and recruit good developers-and keep them!

Fabrice and Benoît are famous for being among the first tech founders to successfully put Lean methodology to practical use, and their company is a Deloitte "Fast 50" company and the "FT 1000" list.

The Lean Tech Manifesto is a major step toward solving your greatest challenge: getting ahead of the competition without the need for massive investments in staff and resources, which always result in higher levels of organizational confusion and waste.
