Horrible

I wouldnt recommend this book to anyone. Literally 30% of words are "Agile Project Management". Almost every sentence starts with "Agile Project Management". Moreover book is full of cheese phrases.... "Define a vision" - really!?

Not a complete guide; too vague

This is nowhere near a complete guide. I was hoping to get more in-depth information, especially on different frameworks like Kanban, etc, but the book only lightly glossed over those subjects. This was a waste of time and money.

It was an introduction

Using the word "Complete" was a bit over selling it. Basic Introduction is in the title yet it doesn't discuss much beyond mentioning mentioning that these processes exist. It does explain what Agile is very lightly. I think it's a good listen if you've never heard of Agile or any other methodology. It's only 1hr of your life.

Definitely worth the listen

This book gives a very good overview of how the Agile project management system works. It explains the differences between Agile and several other project management programs explaining why Agile is a good fit for most companies, private or government. The wording is very easy to understand it is written in laymen terms rather than technical terms.

Agile Project Management

Agile Project Management is a very useful concept, seen also elsewhere, in this book the practical steps for achieving it, or rather the steps that one should avoid, are outlined as well.

Project management is a very important tool

Project management is a very important tool for any business, especially small businesses that don’t have a project management team. This book will walk you through project management techniques and what to use for certain situations. I highly recommend this book to any business owner and I will be referencing this book again in the future for my own business.

Awful

If you want to hear the writer say that agile is preferred by project managers over and over again, then this is the book for you. I bought this to get an understanding of what agile is and it’s failed on every level.

Nothing groundbreaking

Not enough examples or concreate information, in fact the book is very repetitive. I keep getting informed how fantastic agile is, but still don't know much of practical uses. In short a lot of theory sounding like a grocery list

Clear and informative

This quick start guide was amazing. It helped me so much with my project management skills. That is one area I have always had a hard time to excel in. But with the help of this audible and a couple key programs I am finally getting my world organized.
