A great resource for an inexperienced manager

I participated in several projects and could try leading some initiatives. They all were using a traditional methodology. Well, on my projects, I wasn't using any real method, rather what I learned on the fly.

The audiobook introduces agile project management from the basics. It provides a clear overview of Agile principles centered around the customer and provides more effective cooperation among the team. What I like is that it encourages and gives more opportunities to the best teammates.

Examples of free software tools are great sources, and Asana seems to fit most to my personal projects.

The bonus checklist is a great help even on projects that I will do mostly myself because it reminds me of all critical aspects.

Awesome preparation for the interview

I'm so glad that I have chosen this one This book is just everything you need to know about being agile PM without extra words. The book is well structured, and it was a real pleasure to listen to it while driving. The quality of narration and information is excellent! And now I’m ready for the job interview for the project manager position!

So Important audiobook.

The audiobook was so knowledgeable and very important for the beginners who will do the work at the project site. In this audiobook, agile project management was described so easily. And also done a brief discussion about methodology and quality control.

Ready, Set, Agile!

I like not only the brand name of the book (the author wrote another book on project management) but also their creativity. He created a framework and named three stages of the overall project and each cycle as Ready, Set, Agile! This reference to the sport may help to memorize the essential aspects of project work.

A quick guide to Agile

Agile is becoming more popular in every industry and dominates software development. I like the easy style that takes the reader from the basic concepts of project management to specific areas of Agile.

Fits all levels of PM

The audiobook will serve all levels of project managers, both employees, and entrepreneurs. I like how the book is structured and the attached bonus checklist. Agile is now mostly used methodology and will dominate in the future. The role of a project manager is different in agile than in waterfall and in agile it’s usually called differently.

The bonus checklist alone is worth the price

The checklist is a practical guide. I printed it and look at it every morning to select one aspect for that day to work on. This makes my projects agile even when I don’t use agile methodology :)

For any PM level

The book is written by a professional PM. It contains over 80 references to external sources of additional info. Whether you are just considering to lead agile projects or are well experienced, you will find a lot of great info.

Pros and cons of each framework

One size does not fit all. The same is true for projects. The author describes the advantages and disadvantages of each framework. I think that Scrum with a Kanban board is the best option for my projects. The examples of more and less successful projects in chapter 9 are also helpful when choosing the right framework.

Make your team great

The author emphasizes teamwork which I think is the most critical on every project. He says a good team challenges each other to be their best. So it’s not only about the project manager’s leadership skills but rather the team that they are part of. The agile project is about the people involved and their interactions. A superstar alone can’t do much.

A fairly comprehensive introduction to modern PM

A fairly comprehensive introduction (it is only an intro) to modern Project Management. The book's a little heavy on the American football analogies which gets a little tedious, but on the whole it's pretty good.
