Publisher's Summary

There's more than one way to skin a cat, so goes the saying. The same holds true when it comes to managing projects, particularly software development-related ones. There are so many methodologies out in the market place, with each claiming they're better than the others. 

It's not possible to point out the single best project-management methodology, as each methodology has its own strengths and weaknesses, depending on the circumstances surrounding projects. But one thing's for sure: One specific project-management system is generally head and shoulders above traditional methods. That system is called the Agile project-management system. 

The Agile project-management system, or Agile PMS, helps project teams optimize their effectiveness and efficiency through the adoption of methodologies that can help them become very agile or flexible. 

The Agile project-management system is one of the most popular ones in the field today simply because for most organizations that adopt it, it works! While it's not a perfect system, it's one that provides a great deal of benefits to any organization and project team that applies it in its operations. 

In this audiobook, you'll learn what the Agile PMS is, its underlying values and principles, who is qualified to implement it, the different iterations of the Agile PMS (particularly the dynamic systems development method or DSDM and one of its most popular variants, the DSDM Atern), the different roles that need to be filled up to successfully implement the DSDM-Agile PMS, and how the Agile PMS differs from traditional project-management systems in terms of two crucial aspects of managing any project - scope and procurement.

Basic information

This was not a step by step how-to book, as the title implies. It is a high level survey, an intro course. The narrator is robotic and utterly repulsive. If you been exposed to Agile in the past, skip this book. I’m sorry I listened to it
