GOOD BOOK...

I've read a number of agile related books. This is by far one of the best ones I've read to date. The book is an easy read and provides a pragmatic approach to implementing agility within a team.

lots of blah blah blah

I am an experienced PM, with agile training, and i found the booked talked more about how good was agile, and background, but not much about how to implement agile for a Project. So there seemed to be lots of blah blah about agile, and less substance for me to use day to day. it's a return book for me...

Powerful

A powerful book that will let us understand on what Agile Project Management is all about and how we can implement it correctly. Agile Project management focuses on continuous improvement, scope flexibility, team input, and delivering essential quality products.

Clear and Thorough!

That list works as a repository of best practices that experienced personnel can aggregate into their projects. For novice developers, the book takes the time to explain exactly how Scrum works and why things are done in a certain way in Scrum projects, although still making it clear that each Scrum team will probably deviate a little of the practices listed in the book because of their specific context.

Really great

The book is both a very good introduction and a reference to Scrum. It is plenty of examples coming from the experience of the author as a Scrum consultant. Sometimes, I found the book to be very repetitive. On one hand, reading the same thing on and on improves the chance of absorving the key concepts of the subject. But, on the other hand, it makes reading the book much more difficult. However, it is a good book and I strongly recommend it to anyone starting in Scrum and the agile world.

This book is super helpful

This book is super helpful as a guide as I work through the Scrum ceremonies and help transition our company from waterfall projects to agile. I have sections underlined and tagged for quick reference. I've been referring to this a lot!!

good quality

A broader understanding of Agile is taught and appreciated in this material. It goes beyond software development. It's amazing to see that software development has produced a set of philosophies that is now changing the way we think about delivering quality products and services.

simple guide


Great book given its fresh samples and insight. All use cases are recent so we can easily connect to them. The last 2 chapter are more an overview on the last years’trend in the business and despite interesting I felt they were not consistent with the rest of the book.

Just recommend it.

This is a really great deep dive into taking your Scrum process to the next level with Scrumban. We've been living some of these changes in our organization for the past couple months and it's been great. Less management overhead and more clarity in our future deliverable.

RECOMMENDED.........

Although the writer acknowledges that you have to get more information by studying other materials and practicing, this book is actually very thorough. The author explains a lot of terms which includes DSDM, ITIL, the Scrum theory and many others.

must listen to it

If you take the time to read and think about the material presented, you will be way, way ahead of most scrum practitioners. If you by one book on Scrum, this should be it!

interesting

Scrum is a framework, and consequently, there are many approaches to solve different problems, and this book does an absolutely outstanding job reviewing them.
