Table of Contents, then not much else

Would you try another book from Paul VII and/or Christian Carvajal?

No to Paul. Seems like he's just mass-producing one-sheets as audiobooks. Maybe to Christian. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he was prepped badly.

What was most disappointing about Paul VII’s story?

Never have I heard the table of contents read aloud in an audiobook. The rest of the book was the same content again with one or two additional oneliners. Zero depth or insight into anything. Quite disappointing.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christian Carvajal?

I don't think anyone could have done a good job with this.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really. Quite bad that this is the only audiobook that comes up when you search for "kanban". I think it does a disservice to the concept.

Any additional comments?

If you're going to post an audiobook about kanban, it would be good to prep your narrator with how to pronounce "kanban". Reads like a very short powerpoint deck written at a high-school level, with just as much usable content. Overall it's embarassing and amateurish.

Short, clear, what you need to start

Great overview over Kanban methodology. If you are already familiar with agile management such as scrum, this short audiobook gives you some clear points.

Good for a complete beginner

I have quite some experience in the topic and thought this book could have some valuable (advanced information) but it is quite simple and clearly for beginners.

book on definition of terms

Book explains the terms used in KANBAN. The books will convey the concepts more clearly if it uses examples on how KANBAN can be implemented in a single business unit. This book may not be a good choice for those who does know basics of agile and KANBAN or those who does not have clear concept of how to implement KANBAN

Not great, and not worth the money

Full of consulting spin and hype language. Seems to exist to sell their consulting services. Didn't learn anything that I didn't already get from Wikipedia.
