_Slack_ by Tom DeMarco is a seminal work on helping knowledge workers (and their managers) make work..well…work. This has been my go-to book to give to any new manager or team leader. Most individual contributors will read it and immediately identify with it and want to give copies to their managers as well.

This will be the first meeting where we discuss the first half of the book and talk about what we found valuable, questionable, and things that make you go hmmmmmmmm. The second meeting will be on September 5th.

Feel free to come whether you read all, some, or none of the first half! We’ll provide Torchy’s and drinks.

* Agile Austin will pay for your book if you participate! Show up to both of the two meetings, save your receipt, and Agile Austin will reimburse the cost of your book!
