Editorial Reviews

Review

"... the book for everyone who is considering how to "scale" their lean/agile processes to work in large programs. Johanna provides straightforward and practical advice on how to go from single project/simple product agile implementation to large, complex programs while retaining the core of agility and lean thinking. " --Shane Hastie, Chief Knowledge Engineer & Agile Practice Lead, Software Education


"... the definitive guide to programme management in the agile and lean world. I found it invaluable in crystallising in my mind how to marry agile and lean principles to programme management."  --Owain Griffiths, Principal Consultant, ThoughtWorks


"... A must-read for anyone who is either responsible for or impacted by the planning or delivery of multi-team software initiatives." --Matt Barcomb, Directing Principal, Tidal River Consulting


"... an excellent guide to managing large (aka enterprise) projects. By taking the large, often unwieldy, concepts and placing them in an experienced agile/lean context, she makes the information accessible and provides the roadmap you need to keep your organization on track and effective." --Jared Richardson, Principal Consultant, Agile Artisans


"... actionable, pragmatic techniques to deliver the value your customers desire." --Ian Brockbank, Agile Architect and Program Manager, Cirrus Logic, and blogger at badgertaming.net


"... an excellent balance between the practical and the theoretical here---and achieves a conversational tone even when diving into the latter. This book feels like sitting down with a trusted colleague to chat and get some guidance on ideas, patterns, and solutions." --Gary Pedretti, Agile Trainer and Owner, Sodoto Solutions


"... a must-read for project and program managers. ... deep personal insights, pragmatic advice, and personal tips on how to influence and motivate others towards agile program success." --Declan Whelan, Agile Coach, Leanintuit



"... provides a unique blend of thought-provoking anecdotes and successful patterns for scaling collaboration. This is a great read for program managers and leaders in large organizations." --Catherine Swetel, Principal Consultant

"One of my clients called what I did with team-based organization change "building a program management culture." But I didn't know program management; I knew shared responsibility and shared leadership.  In this book, Johanna's combined them combined them brilliantly!" --Christopher Avery, author of "Teamwork is an Individual Skills: Getting Your Work Done When Sharing Responsibility"

"Programs - even small ones - can quickly disintegrate when they fall apart at the seams. Agile and Lean Program Management is a hands-on and essential guidebook for navigating and integrating any program landscape from simple to complex.Born out of years of experience, Johanna's wisdom is distilled into a set of comprehensive principles and actionable practices.  Whatever you do, don't start a program without this book.  And, as you go along, use it proactively to ensure you are doing the right things and doing things right. If your program is troubled, then use this gem of a book as a diagnostic tool and remediation plan.  Get a copy for yourself and each team lead so that everyone is on the same page. Enjoy the ride!" -- Doug DeCarlo, author of eXtreme Project Management: Using Leadership, Principles, and Tools to Deliver Value in the Face of Volatility

I suggest you think about your context first, because your circumstances are unique. I help leaders and managers do reasonable things that work. I write an email newsletter, the Pragmatic Manager, and two blogs on jrothman.com, and a personal blog on createadaptablelife.com with its own newsletter. Please take a look and sign up for the newsletters. I write articles for all kinds of places, including Better Software, IEEE Software, and Cutter IT Journal to name just three. I've keynoted on five continents. I'm not sure I want to go to Antarctica. I can help you create projects, teams, and organizations that work.
