Brandon combines different methodologies ranging from project management, to Agile principles, to good leadership, to proven and best practices. Approaching each concern at the human factor has greatly helped me view my current approach to my work and how to best work with my customers, management, and colleagues. This book is filled with great one-liners that would be beneficial in most industries or situations.
He accurately explains this importance of factoring in the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in business decisions as well as picking between COTS, Open-Source, or internal apps.
There are so many great concepts and approaches brimming from these pages. It's is well worth the read. You'll find yourself making notes throughout this book. Very well worth it.
Definitely worth a read, would buy again.
This is easy to read and worth purchasing if you work in the tech industry.
What I didn’t like (thus the 4 stars instead of 5) is that it jumps around quite a bit. In other words, there are “flow” issues. A great editor with enough time on their hands can help turn the second edition into a 5 star book!
