'Agile Project Management' Excerpt
Today, the pace of project management moves faster. Project management needs to become more flexible and far more responsive to customers. Using Agile Project Management (APM), project managers can achieve all these goals without compromising value, quality or business discipline. In Agile Project Management, Second Edition, author Jim Highsmith thoroughly updates his classic guide to APM, extending and refining it to support even the largest projects and organizations.
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.
