    One thought on “Agile Project Management for Dummies”

    1. I've purchased many "r Dummies" books in the past but this is the first one I've actually read cover-to-cover. If you are familiar with the "r Dummies" series, you know what you're going to get: a nuts and bolts, start with the basics, type of book. Having knowledge of and experience in the traditional waterfall project methodology for software development and delivery, I wanted to learn more about Agile Project Methodology but I wanted to make sure I started with a solid foundation. If your pla [...]

    2. In het bedrijf waar ik werk probeer ik sinds enkele maanden de agile aanpak ingang te doen vinden. Ik heb me al uitgebreid geïnformeerd via het internet en dit boek is het eerste "papieren" boek dat ik over agile lees. Waar de officiële Scrum Guide beperkt is tot een luttele 16 A4'tjes, heb je aan dit boek een hele kluif: 335 bladzijden en een redelijk klein lettertype. Het is duidelijk gestructureerd en is erg uitgebreid. Vooral de laatste hoofdstukken, over hoe agile introduceren, mensen mee [...]

    3. Read for a class on Agile Management from Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario. This book was a good intro to Agile Management and the differences between it and Waterfall/Traditional Project Management. This type of management is excellent for software projects and developing software related plug-ins. The author talks in depth about Agile and its uses, and tries to sell the reader on using Agile in traditional settings, which I personally disagree with in many ways. However, it is an interes [...]

    4. For someone already knowledgable in Scrum and Agile in general, this book does not provide much value other than repetition of the already known. In certain places the book feels like a chase for word count, by re-iterating what's already been said and that makes you want to skip ahead. The book is all about "the perfect scenario", but doesn't dig into the grit of things.For the complete beginner in Agile, this book is a bit too broad-stroked and might provide some insight into how Agile project [...]

    5. Mark C. Layton, known globally as Mr. Agile, is an organizational strategist and PMI certification instructor with over 20 years in the project/program management field. He is the Los Angeles chair for the Agile Leadership Network and is the founder of Platinum Edge, an organizational improvement company that supports businesses making the Waterfall-to-Agile transition. When he isn’t overseeing client engagements, Mark is a frequent speaker on extreme programming (XP), lean, scrum, and other a [...]

    6. Ugh, this book was hard to get through. I admit that I was fully aware of many of the Agile concepts prior to cracking open this book. It was given to me at a project management event and opened it when I wanted to brush up on some terminology for an interview.The criminal sin of this book was how repetitive it was. He probably could have cut 100 pages if he said the information just once. And, while I know that this book was to teach about Agile, I felt like he was too much of a cheerleader. Th [...]

    7. We've just implemented Agile Scrum on a project at work, and even within the first sprint, it has been terrific. I thought I'd augment my knowledge with this book and felt it was very good. My only real complaint is that by the end of the book, it felt like it was saying the same things over and over again. The "road map to success" diagram was used at least 3 or 4 different times in the bookI got it after the first time. So it could have been a little more concise by cutting out the repetition, [...]

    8. Note: I read the IBM edition, not this edition. IBM edition is shorter and older!Not for true dummies, needs some experience in agile, but gives very good review of the topic.Well structuredI found many topics new to meShort but enough as a reviewShamelessly, contains too much ads for IBM products, but it is IBM-edition! But on the other side neglects mentioning other strong tools like TFS (but this understandable also, it's a Microsoft product :)

    9. It was repetitive and I did not read it cover to cover. It was available from a digital library so it was a convenient way to learn about agile. It had a few good tips I'm not sure I would have learned from a web search, so it was useful.

    10. This book was really repetitive. The concepts were were well presented. A little humor mixed in with material that can be dry helped keep reading fairly light. Real world example helped put the concepts in perspective.

    11. Too many words for such an amount of information. This book is suffering of verbosity and countless repetitions. Ask yourself If you are dummy, and if your answer is 'Yes' - go ahead, otherwise don't buy this book.

    12. A quick read to grab the concepts of Agile management. The author used some real world examples and had an entertaining writing style which made what could have been a dull book more interesting.

    13. Clear and concise. This book is great if you want to explore the secrets of the Agile management style. Many examples, easy to read, totally worth it.

    14. Exactly what I needed. High-level, nothing more. Was also able to claim PDUs in PMI's self-directed learning category for reading this.
