Review Text

  • By Mikkel T. Kristiansen on 28 June 2012

    In his book, Jonathan gives a full tour of how to run agile software development projects. All the way from idea inception and gathering requirements, to day-to-day tasks of running a project with real customers and real deadlines, to handling changes in the environment surrounding the project and team. Jonathan bases most of the book on Scrum-like iterative development processes, but even Kanban-style processes are touched upon. The book is easy to read and understand, and it gives the reader a very solid feel for what agile development is all about. I highly recommend this book to both developers, architects, team leads and project managers - even cutstomer-side project managers will benefit greatly from reading it.

    I found this book to be a great introduction to agile. It is easy to read and has helpful illustrations and examples. That said I doubt experienced agile developers would find this book very useful. It's not very long and does not delve that deep into specific agile practices. Recommended for beginners.

    Excellent introduction to what agile is all about. I bought it for a new 'PM' and hope it Inspired them as it did me.

    It's a book!

    The contents of this book are very well written. The simplification and the pragmatism are a big part of it, which makes the whole experience very pleasant and useful.

    I bought this item as a gift and it seemed very well received. It would appear it was just what was required to support a new job role
