Have you ever tried your hand at software development only to find out that it’s much harder than you prepared for? Not only do you have to make sure that your skills are up to par with everybody else but there is also the matter of coordinating with everyone involved in that project. And with Collaboration comes the potential for complexity. Soon enough, you’ll be juggling different deadlines and correspondences, deal with differences in design approaches, and wade through deep technical problems. Aside from that, you’d have to deal with pressure from investors and stakeholders whose visions your team is trying to translate into something tangible but often get blindsided by last-minute committee decisions. Now, what if you are open to a more agile method of managing projects but find changes in your results to be insignificant? For instance, you might have adopted methodologies like Scrum and XP but find your team of going through the motions of the change instead of fully embracing such. Managing a project that requires collaborative effort is complicated and often challenging, there is no doubt to that. But what if someone were to tell you that you can help your team achieve its goals at a faster and far more effective pace? This is where this book comes into play. In this book, you will learn the different Agile Methodologies, the rationale behind their structures, and the values, principles, and concepts that you could use in employing them. If that is not enough for you, here are a few more things that the book will focus on: What motivates teams and what ideas and principles do they identify with the most? The basics of the four major Agile methodologies: Scrum, XP, Kanban, and Lean. What makes them different from one another? Restructuring your team’s framework to be more compatible with agile methodologies. Picking the right methodology for your team or for a certain project. Preparing, dealing with, and mitigating potential problems that might arise from the application of methodologies. Ensuring sustainability in the application of agile methodologies. In essence, by learning of the Why behind Agile Project Management methods, you can find the How in implementing them for your own team. And eventually, you should be able to achieve the results you have set for the team or, better yet, go beyond those. The information provided in this book has been organized in such a way that it is easy to understand and master, even for those who are relatively new to the concepts of software development and project management. If the prospect of learning how to finish projects faster and more effectively intrigues you, then it is now time to dive deep into the world of Agile Project Management!

When software development teams move to agile methods, experienced project managers often struggle—doubtful about the new approach and uncertain about their new roles and responsibilities. In this book, two long-time certified Project Management Professionals (PMPRs) and Scrum trainers have built a bridge to this dynamic new paradigm. They show experienced project managers how to successfully transition to agile by refocusing on facilitation and collaboration, not “command and control.” The authors begin by explaining how agile works: how it differs from traditional “plan-driven” methodologies, the benefits it promises, and the real-world results it delivers. Next, they systematically map the Project Management Institute’s classic, methodology-independent techniques and terminology to agile practices. They cover both process and project lifecycles and carefully address vital issues ranging from scope and time to cost management and stakeholder communication. Finally, drawing on their own extensive personal experience, they put a human face on your personal transition to agile--covering the emotional challenges, personal values, and key leadership traits you’ll need to succeed. Coverage includes Relating the PMBOKR Guide ideals to agile practices: similarities, overlaps, and differences Understanding the role and value of agile techniques such as iteration/release planning and retrospectives Using agile techniques to systematically and continually reduce risk Implementing quality assurance (QA) where it belongs: in analysis, design, defect prevention, and continuous improvement Learning to trust your teams and listen for their discoveries Procuring, purchasing, and contracting for software in agile, collaborative environments Avoiding the common mistakes software teams make in transitioning to agile Coordinating with project management offices and non-agile teams “Selling” agile within your teams and throughout your organization For every project manager who wants to become more agile.

The older rigid traditional models of delivering changes has been replaced with an agile way of delivering changes. The world of apps, and internet driven economy means that any change has to be delivered almost overnight with no scope for delays and the consumer wants things almost immediately. Agile provides that project management methodology to help you get the results immediately.
The fast delivery of software products was the only way that developers could understand what the customers wanted and make necessary changes. This is what led to Agile Project Management.

If you want to lead your team or organization to succeed but you don't know how to do it, then keep reading.... Forget about the conventional way of doing things. Today, consumers change their mind in a flip. Therefore, you need to be ready to adjust to such changes rapidly. Keep in mind that your ability to change will contribute a lot to the success of your product. The agile method of project management is a new way of handling projects by promoting rapid change in the project development process. The agile method was introduced after software developers found it difficult to deliver their products in time when using the traditional approach. Using this technique, they delivered applications late, and sometimes, their projects were canceled. This happened because of the delays which affected the delivery of products in time. Following the frustrations faced by software developers, they had to come up with a method which focused more on the product and not the process. They aimed to make sure that a product was in front of the consumers as quickly as possible. The fast delivery of software products was the only way that developers could understand what the customers wanted and make necessary changes. This is what led to Agile Project Management. Sure, the method was introduced to benefit software developers, but it can equally be utilized in any organization. The idea of managing projects occurs in every institution. Therefore, using the agile method can be an effective way to guarantee that a project succeeds. Inside this guide, we have discussed the 12 principles which govern the way a project should be handled. The highest priority of an agile project is to meet customer requirements through rapid and continuous delivery. Also, the change should be acknowledged at all stages of the development process. The agile method also promotes the idea that the project is built around a group of motivated individuals. Therefore, no one needs to be pushed around to meet their daily targets. This guide will focus on the following: Platinum Principles Agile Specific Methodologies The Need for Agile Development in an Organization What is Agile CCPM? Why You May Have Problems Implementing Agile Goal Setting and OKRs Techniques of Agile Software Development Understanding the Agile Lifecycle Scrum Roles Principles for Designing the Teams Planning Your Project How to Track the agile Project? DSDM Atern Challenges of Implementing Agile Risks of Agile Project Management Tips for Successful Scrum ... AND MORE!!! Even if you come from the traditional management style and it's your first approach with agile, this book will really explain you all the details of this smart approach. Even if your team has never had an approach with agile method, this book will explain you how to install the right mindset in your team members. So, what are you waiting for?

"Developing software to support the fluctuating needs of a busy and thriving business is a challenge. Strong collaboration between business and technical stakeholders is essential even though that can sometimes feel like trying to mix oil and water. The landscape we work across is often complex, spanning multiple organisations and territories. Managers who know how to pull the right people together to achieve this effectively are key. The Scrum framework provides an approach that has been widely adopted for incremental team-based software delivery. The beauty of Scrum is its simplicity with few events and roles a team needs to learn. However, there are a few gaps and unanswered questions that a business adopting Scrum may need to resolve to use Scrum effectively. Often these lie outside the realm of software development and require communication channels and shared understanding to be established before any code gets written. This handy guide provides practical answers for how you can embed Scrum into a broader project lifecycle in an Agile way. Andrew has distilled some tried and tested techniques for Agile Project Management that compliment the Scrum framework and increase chances of success.
