About Book:

"Best Seller" - The controversial business novel that dared to question Agile's "cult following."

"This has touched a nerve" - The Register

Despite Agile's dominance in software development, 81% of UK and 89% of US business leaders are concerned about the timely delivery of projects. The success rates for transformation initiatives are alarming, with 96% of Agile transformations and 70% of digital transformations failing. Just 10% of companies that enter restructuring survive the process.

Personal transformation success is also exceedingly rare, with only 7.5% of smokers successfully quitting despite 55% attempting to quit each year and just 1.8% of obese individuals maintaining a modest 5% weight loss over five years.

Enter “Impact Engineering,” a groundbreaking methodology that reduces Agile project failure rates by an astounding 6.5x and offers psychologically proven strategies for successful personal and business transformations. Presented in the engaging format of a business novel, this book uses extensive case studies and rigorous research to revolutionise the approach to failing projects and catalyse meaningful change.
