Format: Paperback
In her book, Belinda shows you a fresh new approach; a faster, more visual way of checking, proving,
validating all those things that too often we juggle inside our (over) busy head. Using her book to
navigate the easy and fun process of getting control of any situation, she guides you through better
uses of time, tools and methods. The benefits are quickly measurable by how much you embrace
what you read… and put into practice, both in your business and personal life. Belinda makes it
effortless to ‘get it’, from the basics, to the more in depth cultural changes that many strive to achieve, but few will reach without using Belinda’s agile roadmap. A small investment in time and effort to read this book will enable a profound change for the good in how you work in future.
We all collaborate in one way or another and again, Belinda shows some winning ways for sharing
information, allocating workload fairly and clearly and enabling everyone to feel a valued team player. Belinda has assisted me greatly with my clients and I always look forward to working with her or co-facilitating agile sessions with new or established businesses. I use the whole agile way of working with both business and private clients. No more need for complex, computer based project
management tools, hidden from view and taking hours to re-calculate when the inevitable ‘unexpected’ changes take place, on a regular basis… Now I ‘get it out of my head’ and with
Belinda’s agile visual tools and methods, I look at it from a variety of perspectives and can share or
ask for help from whoever is in my virtual team… Learning this is easy, for all ages and experiences…
If you want to save time, that precious commodity; avoid waste; communicate on workload and
resources with friends or colleagues… get reading, short bursts and put it into action, the agile way. Will, Business and Personal Coach and NLP Master Business Practitioner

I've been practicing agile methodologies for years and it's nice to see these techniques emerging in to other business areas.
I think the principles can be applied just about anywhere from the work place to our everyday lives.
There should be more books like this.

I ordered this book because I run my own business I was looking for tips to help me develop my business. I am smart but I found the book difficult. I thought it wasn't that will suited to the retail model of business.
I managed to take a few ideas from it. I will probably read it again in the future.

This book is a great read for anyone wanting to explore Agile practices in both business and software.

After briefly exploring agile as part of my university course, this book has helped to fill in the blanks. More importantly it's helped me to understand why this methodology is effective, with clear and concise examples. The tone of writing gave me the feeling of being talked through the methodology by a friend, preventing the book from becoming a dry read.

As another reviewer has suggested, it's a great reference book that I will keep going back to. After only a month it's become one of my most read business books on the shelf. My only gripe is that it wasn't released when I was studying the materials at uni, I'm sure I would of got a better grade :)

In this book she gives her answer to the question: “Can Agile work outside of software?” and her answer is a definitive Yes.

This is because Belinda has seen these things work with her own eyes, she has introduced ideas which originated in software companies to non-software companies and helped them do it. As a result this book is not a dry abstract discussion of theory but a discussion of these practices being in the real world - in actual businesses, in actual teams, in real, non-software, businesses.

At its most basic this book describes how agile practices can be used by every business to do their current work better. At the more advances level readers will see how adopting an Agile mindset can radically change and improve their business.

I should probably point out that I'm not completely without biases here, being the author of books on Agile myself and having contributed a forward to this book. Please don't think "This reviewer is writing a good review because he wrote the forward" think rather "This reviewer believes in the book so much he wrote a forward."

I have been delivering and coaching Agile in the public sector for three years now. Often it can be a challenge to help customers to understand how Agile can assist in change without actually doing it with them. This book is the first book I've read that from start to finish I nodded 'So this is what I do!' and 'that'd make sense to customers'
It's an easy but such an effective read, my copy of this book has my notes for reference scribbled all over it.
