Insights and guidance for the agile Project Manager

"The perfect map for anyone starting an agile transformation trip. As a collaborator of this book it has been a great pleasure for me to read it and learn from many testimonials of recognized agile practitioners. The focus of this book is very clear: much has been written about agile methodologies and techniques, but little about how to succeed in transforming organizations thorough value driven and self empowered teams. This book provides not only the technical foundations, but also a lot of personal experiences to achieve such an exciting transformation" David de F.

"This is a wonderful book providing the insight on various practices followed in Agile and is a wonderful summary of all Agile methodologies. Do have a look at this and is a must buy. Author Gloria Miller has done a great job"
