Some brief overview of this book

Why do some projects deliver under budget and ahead of schedule, while others cost more and take longer than expected? More important, which products work better: the quick and thrifty or the slow and expensive?

In a story-filled blend of quirky pop culture and practical engineering insight, Dan Wards F.I.R.E. answers those questions and more. Wards extensive research and firsthand experience show how the worlds top technologists consistently deliver best-in-class results on shoestring budgets and cannonball schedules, and using skeleton crews.

This remarkable book will make you laugh, make you think, and equip you to leverage the power of constraints. Discover the secrets of F.I.R.E. and learn how to:

Build strategies for speed that enhance accountability and ensure your products are well aligned with the markets needs.

Design your organizations, products, and processes with thrift in mind, solving problems with intellectual capital, not financial capital.

Unleash the power of small budgets and small teams, using short schedules, short meetings, and short documents.

Streamline your designs and cut through unnecessary, unproductive layers of bureaucracy.

But this is not just a book about how to win. With unflinching candor, Ward shows how the F.I.R.E. method, even when followed wisely and well, can result in a flop. Taking a deep look at several negative outcomes, he shows how to make failures optimal rather than epic.

F.I.R.E. provides strategic concepts for leaders, decision-making principles for managers, and practical tools for people working on anything from spacecraft and fighter jets to websites and childrens toys. Technology professionals and curious amateurs alike will come away with a deeper understanding of effective product design. Plus, theres a funny story about a dishwasher that just may change the way you buy major appliances.
