This is a wise and consoling notion that agile project management is worth looking into. The book is astonishing on getting underneath the subject's surface and underlined that rebuilding out fresh management tactics is a key!

Great resource

Agile is a good fit for most companies, private or government. The wording is very easy to understand it is written in laymen terms rather than technical terms. I found no errors in the book at all so it was easy to read with detailed explanations on how the program works and why it would work for any business or any project for that fact.

This book is INTENSE!

This book is INTENSE! I was certainly not expecting it to be this intense and the project scopes outlined are for big projects, bigger than I do.
I often do a lot of projects at work, but my scope is much smaller. That being said, there are a ton of great ideas for project management in here and I can only see this book as being an invaluable tool in my career and my life.

Great Project Management Tool

There are so many things in this book- that are easy and valuable items for making decisions and seeing a project timeline. I wont list them out- as that would be giving away the book, but it certainly is a a great investment. This book provides a great foundation for leadership, judgment and project management.
I like the case studies and examples that were given to help relate a project to real life.

Well done

This book does a good job of detailing the history and various aspects of agile project management and gives the reader a good broad view of agile project management. I would not, by any means call this an all-encompassing agile project management book. As the title indicates, it is a good quick start guide.

Easy read

I work in software testing and was able to relate to many of the techniques discussed in the book. Obviously, it focuses primarily on agile project management, but it does touch on waterfall and spiral management styles also. I did not notice that it discussed the possibility that there are combinations of the project management styles. For example, many of the projects I work on are handled in either a spiral or agile style for each of the sub-components; however, overall the project is primarily handled in a waterfall approach.

For anyone in the field of project management

I am impressed. Surprisingly very good and well researched. The difficult pill to swallow is that you need to prioritize your work and intentionally ignore actions that don't lead directly to results. The fact that he summarizes the key takeaway point in every existing chapter is excellent.

Giving these case studies from the perspective of

Giving these case studies from the perspective of a few different companies gives some diversity in the feedback received since not every company nor every project is the same. This book lays out the benefits of using this methodology over other methodologies in a very clear and concise way. I find this book to be a great asset when furthering my understanding of this process.

Great into to Project Management

The book breaks down a basic discussion of what program management is and what issues face project managers. AS the focus of the book is on agile project management the book introduces this topic and goes over some of the history. I liked the section which covers the basic strategy and specific methodologies which have and can be used within agile project management.

Easy-to-Read

These are the kinds of techniques that you really want and need to make yourself familiar with if you are in business, because there are mounds of research supporting these ideas and these alternative styles. Agile project management is one of these alternative styles or ideas (there are many) and even if you don't plan to make any huge changes to your business, there's some really useful tips, ideas, and information in this book that can be applied to your management style. Its definitely worth looking into because I believe that, no matter who you are or what business you are in, there are suggestions in the book that can help you improve your businesses productivity, etc.
