In complex, dynamic conditions the maneuvers and solutions required to compete effectively cannot be per-planned in detail. Rapid adaptation in response to unfolding reality, via a capability for decentralized decision-making, becomes vital.

Although the writer acknowledges that you have to get more information by studying other materials and practicing, this book is actually very thorough. The author explains a lot of terms which includes DSDM, ITIL, the Scrum theory and many others.

Good for an overview only.

For an overview of agile methodologies, roles and techniques I found this audible to be useful. It does however lack detail, is quite disjointed and I didn't find it an easy read.

Poorly written, poorly structured audible.

I was hoping to walk away with a strong understanding of multiple agile methodologies and ended up walking away with a 200 minutes crash course on scrum with a bunch of poorly written nonsense in the rest of the book. I would return if I could and buy another book.

Great book given its fresh samples and insight. All use cases are recent so we can easily connect to them. The last 2 chapter are more an overview on the last years’trend in the business and despite interesting I felt they were not consistent with the rest of the book.
