4.0 out of 5 stars Software development is about people, 18 Feb. 2011
Let's start by stating that I liked the book a lot. The fact that sw development is more about people than technology is very clearly present in Lyssa's book. She describes the different roles agile coach plays while trying to help the teams to become a self-organizing high-performance business enabler. Lyssa presents lots of practical and insightful methods for coaching people and for creating correct kind of environment for the team to succeed. She also reminds that the role of the coach should be strong at the beginning and fade away as the team progresses on its journey towards truly agile team.

I personally found the failure and success modes to be to most useful part of the book. These describe common coaching issues in easy to remember and easy to identify personas. These help me out in day to day work to avoid harmful behaviour and recover from it. It makes sure I won't be a Butterfly or a Nag with my teams.

The funny part about book is that on the cover it says Software Development - Agile, but inside there is not much about software development. So more about teams, communication, coaching and trust. The important things.
