4.0 out of 5 stars Great, quick and easy read
Really happy to have read this. Only took me one night to get through it but its briefness is simply due to its concise and 'this is what you need to know' approach.
I would really recommend this to any one interested getting onto the Agile ladder and would like to avoid the heavy going 'exam/text book' approach to learning.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overly evangelical, poorly structured.
Painfully evangelical and completely dismissive of other techniques, this uses a lot of words to say very little. The structure includes tips and tricks scattered within the various sections, not all of them detailed but simply referenced. For a genuinely busy manager, I'd instead recommend Agile Project Management for Beginners: Mastering the Basics with Scrum

1.0 out of 5 stars Very short, little practical information, 21 Feb 2013

This review is from: AGILE Project Management for Busy Managers (Kindle Edition)
Very high level ideas, much as I would expect in a short PM article rather than in something helpful. This type of stuff is aailable for no charge on many non-peer-reviewed internet sites. Don't waste your 1.29.

I would really recommend this to any one interested getting onto the Agile ladder and would like to avoid the heavy going 'exam/text book' approach to learning.
It is sometimes hard to know where to start with stuff, so my advise would be to start here!
I would also recommend following Tony Riches on Twitter for even more golden nuggets of learning!

This review is from: AGILE Project Management for Busy Managers (Kindle Edition)
This book has helped me to gain an insight into a different form of project management that I have not been exposed to previously. The book is short, concise and informative. I would advise anyone to have a read through this book if you want to get a basic understanding of agile project management

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, brief overview, 22 Jan 2013

This review is from: AGILE Project Management for Busy Managers (Kindle Edition)
Easily digestible and gives a good insight to the logic and jargon involved. He could have added a bit more detail to some of the jargon used though. An explanation of user stories for example would have prevented me having to look elsewhere.

Not what I needed. Like most books that have the word 'Busy' in their title not very good if you want more than generalities.

This review is from: AGILE Project Management for Busy Managers (Kindle Edition)
To trust th become Agile invokes the need to change a mind set not adopt a new set of project plans, check lists or tick lists.

This book does a great job at opening your eyes to the fact that Agile projects need managing with a different style.

The book does not dive deep in Agile as a methodology and can be read cover to cover in 30 minutes.

Buy it, let you mind start exploring Agile.
