Publisher's Summary

Agile is proving useful even to those outside the software development industry as it enables the readers to observe and analyze their circumstances and then determine the suitable approach. It discusses at length how Agile project management principles and practices empower project managers to adapt to and manage effectively a new kind of innovative product development.

This book will be useful to those Agile beginners who want a better understanding of what agile is all about. The methods and techniques are described in a simple way to understand language and in this regard, this book forms a useful collection of recipes for people wanting to try out many of its agile methods and techniques.

There are some people who perhaps think that there is no need of project management methods these days. That either Agile don't require them, or Agile is somehow incompatible with them. Those people will also benefit from this book because it clearly shows how agile methods which were never designed for project management can be combined with an international project management methodology to help leverage the strengths of both.

The content wasn't really what I was looking for.

The content wasn't really what I was looking for. Came across to me as more of a bashing of company management more so than focused on how to execute specific techniques of agile. This book turns into a vital learning and gives advantage to those who are well informed and have experience on how to use the proficient methods and utilize it. This book offers a ton of data that will help the peruser legitimately sees how to embrace and apply scrum.

I like the book, everyone raves about it for good reason.

I found the narrator really annoying but pushed through it - very useful and highly recommended.
