About the Book
The Principles of Product Development Flow: Second Generation Lean Product
Development by Donald G. Reinertsen
The Principles of Product Development Flow by Donald G. Reinertsen (2009) Current price is under $28.67 for hardback plus shipping on Amazon. The book may also be available from your local library.
The Principles of Product Development Flow will forever change the way you think about product development. Reinertsen starts with the ideas of lean manufacturing but goes far beyond them, drawing upon ideas from telecommunications networks, transportation systems, computer operating systems and military doctrine. He combines a lucid explanation of the science behind flow with a rich set of practical approaches. This is another landmark book by one of the foremost experts on product development.

5:30pm - 6:30pm: Open book discussion
Free meeting for Chapter members.
Preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy (e-book okay) of the book to the meeting is required.
You can purchase the book through Amazon. An E-book version is fine. It may also be available from your local library.
Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of negotiation – we estimate four to six hours of reading, which converts to 4 - 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Category C: Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook.
About the Member's Only Reston Book Club
The Reston Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. There is no Book Club membership. Any PMIWDC member can sign up to join our conversations. There are just three key requirements: preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy of the book to the meeting. Note that you should sign up early as we limit the discussion to fifteen people so that everyone has a chance to share their opinion.
Come to the Book Club with an open mind and prepare to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers.
Studying project management and related topics through books is recognized and rewarded by PMI in PDUs, roughly on the basis of one hour of study equals one PDU. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
