Excerpts from two new books - one about agile project management and the other about Twitter - have been uploaded to the Knowledge Network today.
Writing for project leaders, managers, and executives at all levels, Highsmith integrates the best project management, product management, and software development practices into an overall framework designed to support unprecedented speed and mobility. The many topics added in this new edition include incorporating agile values, scaling agile projects, release planning, portfolio governance, and enhancing organizational agility. Project and business leaders will especially appreciate Highsmith's new coverage of promoting agility through performance measurements based on value, quality and constraints.
This book covers the nuts and bolts of the Twitter social networking and micro-blogging service, including setting up your Twitter account and getting started in minutes; creating great Tweets: making the most of the 140 characters Twitter gives you; using Twitter to make connections, exchange great ideas, and uncover hard-to-find resources; and building a Twitter audience-and using it to build your business. This excerpt comes from Chapter 11, entitled "Taking Care of Business." This chapter explores how you can run and promote your business with Twitter.
