One of the main obstacles to the growth of agile development has been a comprehensive management theory on how to organize the chaos. This book chapter will give you insights on building a management philosophy around Agile.
In many organizations, management is the biggest obstacle to successful agile development. Unfortunately, reliable guidance on agile management has been scarce indeed. Now, leading agile manager Jurgen Appelo fills that gap, introducing a realistic approach to leading, managing and growing your agile team or organization.
Writing for current managers and developers moving into management, Appelo shares insights that are grounded in modern complex systems theory, reflecting the intense complexity of modern software development. Appelo's Management 3.0 model recognizes that today's organizations are living, networked systems and that management is primarily about people and relationships.
