Agile Project Management, Kanban & Scrum

I have been hearing a lot about Agile lately; sprints, scrum, what is all this, and why is it important. It was about time I found out for myself. Not having much time to read a thousand page book on the subject I turned to this QuickStart guide. In a short hour or two, I was able to catch myself up on the overall concepts, benefits, and potential issues with the agile approach to project management.

Very sound principles

I like how the first principle is that customer satisfaction is the highest priority. Of course in order for a business to have longevity, it requires that the company have customers, and more importantly, when the customers are loyal and keep coming back. It brings more certainty for the company to have consistent projected profitability.

Books are good to refresh memory.

Books are good to refresh memory. Few basic step/logic help to make good path to success. This is a book that anyone could read, understand, and use. It is full of useful knowledge, tips, and information about management. Agile Project Management QuickStart Guide is written well with a focused approach to making one understand the different between traditional project methodologies like waterfall approach and the modern agile project management methodology.

Lovely

It focuses primarily on agile project management, but it does touch on waterfall and spiral management styles also. The best thing about this book is all the cases studies and examples of successful agile project management. I also appreciated the easy to-do activities that will help you to get successful results off your projects I would recommend this book to get the basics of Agile Project Management. This book has been thoroughly researched and touches on all the key concepts.

Detailed instruction.

The book is not a difficult read but it is dry as it is instructional. It does serve the purpose for which it was written. A quickstart guide compared to a detailed instruction.

Best 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.

Mastering Agile

The strategies the book gave are considerably more supportive. I've perceived how Agile project development models tended to the weaknesses related with traditional project administration models in meeting the regularly developing requests and desires that associations were confronting. This is my legitimate, impartial assessment about the book.

it is an interesting subject matter

It is an interesting subject matter but found the writing to be a bit borish at times but overall a decent read if relevant. I received this item at no charge in return for my honest review, which I have provided here. All opinions are my own and not effected by the cost of the item.

The explanations are clear

The explanations are clear, and easy to understand. The author does a great job of explaining things thoroughly and little by little expanding on the principles of agile project management. As the title states, it is a "simplified" version, which I much prefer to text books that give you the run around a million times to describe a simple concept.

Agile project methodology always helps your project(s) to stay on track and achieve planned targets in terms of financials, timelines, and deliveries; without compromising quality. Noticeably, Agile project management or agile methodology permits you to entertain as many changes in the customer requirements as you wish as the crux of the game lies on iterations that are small but measurable.

Great little guide

This is a nice guide to Agile PM! We have been reading up on the different styles and I personally used Waterfall for years. As a seasoned PM with a PMP, this was a nice guide to review. It hits high level and observes very helpful tips and ideas to making Agile work for your methodology.
