2nd paragraph?

Developers showcase software from workstations to business analysts at the end of month-long sprints in order to score their �story points� but no attempt is made to understand if the software will achieved its intended outcomes. 'Will achieved'? Should it be something like 'if the software achieved', no will?

1st paragraph

"This shift in thinking about software has even lead to some large companies, including GE and GM, pioneers of outsourcing, taking software development back in house.” Excerpt From: Jez Humble, Barry O’Reilly, and Joanne Molesky. “Lean Enterprise.” iBooks. https://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewBook?id=8F8F52FC304D46361BE2A6A59634B185 The 9th word in the sentence is the incorrect spelling of "lead" — this should be "led".

“This approach, intended to drive efficiency and create predictability, has lead instead to increased costs and enormous waste and inefficiency in turning ideas into measurable business outcomes.” Excerpt From: Jez Humble, Barry O’Reilly, and Joanne Molesky. “Lean Enterprise.” iBooks. https://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewBook?id=8F8F52FC304D46361BE2A6A59634B185 Again, the 11th word should be "led", not "lead".

End of the first paragraph

“We could find no other way to cover the ground we had in scope in an actionable way in less than 300 pages.” Excerpt From: Jez Humble, Barry O’Reilly, and Joanne Molesky. “Lean Enterprise.” iBooks. https://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewBook?id=8F8F52FC304D46361BE2A6A59634B185 Grammatically, this should be "fewer than 300 pages", not "less".

“The conventional wisdom was that executives should achieve this goal through focuing on maximizing shareholder value and compensating the executives with stocks.” Excerpt From: Jez Humble, Barry O’Reilly, and Joanne Molesky. “Lean Enterprise.” iBooks. https://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewBook?id=8F8F52FC304D46361BE2A6A59634B185 I assume the 12th word should be "focusing" and not "focuing".
