The book offers an explanation of how to go about setting up your program environment in a very clear and pragmatic way. The author’s range of experience in both legacy and Agile methods is a great help here as she offers explanations as to why certain approaches are more likely to lead to successful outcomes than others and provides anecdotes highlighting these points. Those new to Agile, or who feel that the language used by Agilists can be a bit daunting, should find the explanations easy to understand as they are provided in a concise manner that doesn’t get too twisted up in jargon.
One of the aspects of the book I found to be the most valuable was the explanation of signs, symptoms, and indicators of potential dysfunction. This is one of the main reasons I am going to be recommending this book to my Certified Scrum Master and Certified Scrum Product Owner students.
Another very important aspect of the book is the balance that is struck between a tactical explanation of how to set things up from an Agile perspective, her incorporation of some traditional practices she has found valuable (like maintaining a risk register), and her approach to soft skill topics like Servant Leadership. If you are familiar with Ms. Rothman’s work, this will not come as a surprise, but her ability to balance these is a rare thing that can make a topic like Agile Program Management a little more accessible.
I think for many of those who are on the path to Agile, the final three sections of the book may prove to be the most valuable. The sections on troubleshooting issues with Agile Teams and how to work with Agile in a non-Agile environment provide a great deal of sound advice based on years of experience. Finally, in the chapter on what to do if you are interested in Agile, but can’t see how it would work in your organization or can’t determine how you should get started, the author explains how to set up some basic experiments that may help demonstrate the value of an Agile approach to work.
If your looking to run an agile program, this is the book for you. For such a low price, this will save you from making disastrous mistakes.
