Step-By-Step

A great starting-point for anyone wanting to unravel the mystery of "Agile" in the workplace. It couldn't have been written better.

A great starting-point for anyone,

I like how it gives a history and layout of the basics in the beginning of the book. It was a good basis of how to preform agile in the work place and has provided a building block for me at work. It is easy for a beginner to understand and gives a clear understanding of the key ideas and principles of Agile. If you like IT, use this in the workplace, or would like some fresh ideas in running IT at work, I would highly suggest this book for reading.

inspired by this book!

The title suggests a guide. And it is more of a historical overview with some quite shallow examples. I expected a lot more.

Good read

Practical and easy to-do activities that will help you to get successful results off your projects. I’m currently learning and practicing along the way of dealing with the stresses and challenges with activities needed to finish a project. Good read and something you can share with the team to reach your goals.

Great insight on Project Management, but it is more for what appears to be a system called AGILE.

Perfect for beginners, thanks!

But then you also realise that retrospect and continuous improve is the most difficult thing to do; you've been trained to know what to do and how to do it, but nobody trained you how to learn better from your own experiences.

Helped me get started with Agile.

This is a great tool for anyone who has project management experience and is going into an Agile environment. The book breaks down the history of Agile and then goes into providing the essential building blocks of what makes up Agile Project Management. I think it was well organized and would be an ideal tool for anyone looking to start working in an Agile environment.

Found it helpful

This book is by far so much better, by a long shot! The details are clear, and straight forward to understand. The author an amazing job of explaining things thoroughly and little by little expanding on the principles of Project management. We have been able to better focus our time on what is actually being taught; this book has done wonders for us in understanding the material for class.

Good introduction, full of insights.

I liked how the book introduced the concepts in a clear cut manner and without fluff. There were also fictional examples of the concepts being applied which were nice but sometimes a bit too long. Not dry.
