Top Customer Reviews
This should be mandatory reading for everyone from CIOs, Product Managers, Heads of PMOs and everyone involved in software and application development. Adopting Agile looks straightforward at a project level, but Mark points to some of the complexities of enterprise wide implementations towards the end of the book. It's as well to know what it's going to take to maximize the benefits of Agile.
Alter all I liked this book. There is a small glitch reading it on Kindle, the tables, images, etc. aren't so much readble...
I suggest this boook to any Project manager who wishes to learn something different and way more agile in their pmanagment!
