Summary

Does your Agile team experience the following common problems?

  • Members use established Agile practices and tools, yet with little motivation or buy-in.
  • Even though the team is cross-functional, members don’t collaborate effectively or leverage everyone’s abilities.
  • Rather than act empowered, they wait for permission and approval.
  • Improvement has stalled - the team performs okay, but it can do so much better.

You can’t solve these problems with more practices, rules, and tools. These are people problems.

If you’re a ScrumMaster, project manager, delivery lead, or manager - or you aspire to be - you can make all the difference to your Agile team. Not by being a taskmaster, administrator, or process enforcer, but by leading your team to greatness. Listen to this audiobook on your Agile leadership journey, and it will help you to:

  • Build and cultivate an engaged team that can handle almost any challenge
  • Catalyze team communication, collaboration, and continuous improvement
  • Establish yourself as a confident and capable leader who adds value
  • Reap the full benefits of Agile in the real world with real people

"I’ve rarely seen so much useful, concrete advice packaged in such a simple and accessible way." (Henrik Kniberg, Agile coach and author, Lean from the Trenches)

"I just found the next must-read book for our entire leadership team." (Tricia Broderick, Director of Development, TechSmith)

"Agile teams need effective leaders who ‘get’ the people stuff. Without that you’re merely going through the Agile motions." (Scott W. Ambler, co-creator of Disciplined Agile Delivery)

Perfectly executed book!

I have been planning to write a book on Agile to address what it means to truly be Agile and where we our focus should be — on the people. I don’t need to write that book any more as this covers it. Exceedingly well written and it covers all of the necessary points regarding “the human side of Agile.”
