Publisher's Summary

Are you still developing using old and slow methodologies? Save time, reduce costs, and increase product quality by developing with the Agile methodology!

The Agile methodology is a project management methodology that uses short development cycles (called "sprints") to focus on continuous improvement in the development of a product or service. It consists of a family of methods (including Scrum, extreme programming (XP), test-driven development (TDD), and feature-driven development (FDD), each of which has the objective to provide a better product in less time, avoiding development of useless functions and overcoming errors that a traditional planning method could result in, both for big and small projects. 

The purpose of the Agile methodology is to optimize the development process and to identify and quickly correct problems and defects leading to a smarter and more effective product.

In this book, Mark W. Wilk will show you: 

  • What Agile method is and how it works
  • What Scrum, Kanban, and Lean are
  • How to build an Agile team and how to define Agile roles
  • How to define the product vision and create a product road map

Who the Agile methodology is meant for...

This book is for anyone who wants to improve their approach to software development, get a product on the market in as little time possible, save time, reduce costs, increase product quality, and manage a development team successfully.

Who the Agile methodology is not meant for...

Because of its less formal and more flexible processes, the Agile methodology may not be applicable within larger, more traditional organizations where projects are governed by processes, policies, or teams.

Therefore, whether you have experience in software development or you are a beginner software developer, if you want to optimize and speed up your development time as well as those of the team you manage or belong to, and your company is ready to obtain better and more effective products in less time, this is the right guide for you.

FAQs

1. What are the advantages of the Agile methodology?

  • Greater flexibility
  • Greater productivity
  • Higher quality results
  • Less risk of missing functionalities
  • Greater customer involvement and satisfaction

2. Can the Agile method be combined with other methodologies?

It is possible to combine Agile with other methodologies, such as Cascade, to create a hybrid solution. This allows it to adapt to an even greater variety of industries or to the specific nature of a particular project, product, or service.

Maybe a good book not a good audio book

I purchased based on reviews but honestly have no idea how it got such a high rating. Its clear the narrator is reading it as he goes and does not use any emphasis and not sure he understood what he was reading and it shows. I had to return it, I cant speak to whether the book is any good but the narration ruins it.

Not useful and poorly edited

This book is trash. The audio is poorly edited with multiple sections repeating, the language sounds like a bad thesaurus was used to avoid a copyright claim and it goes off onto tangents that waste time. Book could be half as long, but likely still horrible.

Poor narrator

The title says it all. You need to have this narrated by someone who has interest - and experience - of the subject matter.

Also, to take nearly 25% of the book before you actually touch on the subject matter is poor
