Publisher's Summary

Number-one Amazon best seller: Get projects done quickly and add value immediately through agile project management
Agile project management is simply shifting the world of project management at its core, and there's a reason why. With an approach to projects that is quite different from the traditional waterfall methodology, agile project management focuses on adding value fast while staying on track to achieve a defined business goal. Completing projects in small chunks, piece by piece, allows project stakeholders to implement deliverables much faster than waiting for all phases of the project to be completed as well as allowing for modifications to project items based on changing needs.
Often overlooked as a project management style that is only for IT-related projects, agile methodology can be utilized to complete projects across any industry, including company reorganization, improving upon or redefining business processes, and simply any project that has short production and implementation times.
In order to take full advantage of the numerous added benefits of utilizing agile methodology in projects, you must understand the philosophy behind the strategies. In this book I will teach you everything you need to know about Agile project management so you can comfortably and confidently deploy the techniques and strategies in your projects. I'll take you step by step through the phases of an agile project, how to schedule iterations during your project, and how to win over project stakeholders with this progressive methodology.
Broken down into simple, easy-to-understand concepts, this book will become your agile project management Bible that will take you from understanding the concepts to learning how to deploy successfully to complete awesome projects.

Not more than you could get from the Agile website

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for free.

This book very much only scratches the surface. There are few insights in here, and it's really not more than someone reading the Agile website. It's filled with lots of pointless lists and really doesn't dive deep into any topics with any serious depth. If you truly had no idea what Agile was or where to start and you couldn't be bothered to open an internet browser, this book might be useful. But beyond someone who literally despises reading, this book is a waste of time. The case studies aren't even fully or usefully presented.

On the other hand, the reader was very hearable, even at a high speed. He has enough variety in voice that I could pay attention to him.
