this happen to be the second Michael Nir audible book I listened to today without realizing it. this book started out ambitiously - aiming to talk about agile, key competencies focused on the product lead , visiting several interesting topics like influencing, change mgmt, etc, and also how agile can and does at times work with traditional command and control organizations via a hybrid approach, which resonated with me as I had such experienced. however the last several chapters became a recital just rattling off difference SDLC methodologies, without any depth on them, which could have easily been left as an appendix as it didn't tie on to the book well. overall, 3.5 stars for strong substance in the first half, and weak content in the second half. narrator is female and did a good job, with plenty of enthusiasm in her voice that kept me engaged until the rattling SDLC chapter.
Very simple, to the point and without too many elaborate stories. One thing missing is the information on how to write good epics, stories or PRDs.
It is a well done business book and project management for Agile in the organization - will make a difference
