Bob addresses problems endemic in the tech start up world, where almost every new company is forging a totally new path (there is no beaten trail in this industry) by providing a solid framework for creating a company that'll create a great product. This is a must read for anyone who's doing work in this world... or even thinking about it.
Everything from Scrum to Portfolio Management is covered.
However, it differs by presenting ideas in short punchy essays. This makes it enjoyable to read, and easily dipped into when trying to gain some ground in a specific area.
Scrum teams, Agile managers and entrepreneurs would do well to follow this books teachings.
This book complements the traditional ‘how to’ manuals by conveying the passion of those engaged in the practice of Agile. I felt engaged enough at the end of the book to read each of the contributors biographies and I came away feeling more connected to them. As a seasoned project manager that is moving from Waterfall to Agile practices I would like to see more inspiring reads like this. Thanks to Bob Gower and the team at Rally for providing this learning experience.
