Why The Agile Project Manager?
I am passionate about the principles of Agile and how they can be applied to all projects no matter what the agreed delivery method. They can also be applied to life, because when you think about it, we are all in the business of Change. We are ALL Project Managers! Have you moved house? Have you organised a party? Have you purchased anything? Then congratulations, you are a Project Manager! I trust the concepts that I share here will be of value to you.
The Agile Project Manager Book
But it’s so much more than that…
Agile is an approach to problem solving. We tackle big projects by breaking them down into small, deliverable chunks. After each chunk is completed, we inspect it and adjust based on what we learn. We prioritise each chunk based on its value, to ensure we work on the most important items first. We work as a team where smart people get together face-to-face (wherever possible) to brainstorm solutions to complex problems. We succeed as a team and measure our progress to immediately address any roadblocks. We strive to deliver more chunks with higher quality and clear value on a frequent, sustainable basis.
So, to write a book about Agile principles, it should be written using an Agile approach. With this in mind, I came up with a chapter plan and schedule. Every few weeks, I released a new chapter to my subscribers and sought feedback from them. This was a great way to find out early if my idea had any legs, and a fabulous opportunity to learn from people who share my passion. When the first draft was finished, I sent it out to even more trusted advisers to get more feedback.
The book is finished! Thank you to everyone for your amazing feedback. It has also been edited and formatted. it is now with the printer. I can’t wait to share the final version with you.
