Making Agile Processes Work

Are you frustrated or disenchanted by the results of your Agile approach?
Does Agile sound like a good idea, but you're not sure how to explain it beyond roles, practices, and meetings?
Is your team going through the motions, but it's still business as usual?

The missing piece is the Agile mind-set — the thinking that makes Agile processes work.

This book is your compass for the Agile journey. Without prescribing any process, practice, or tool, it will show you how practitioners approach:

  • Deciding what to work on
  • Planning and doing the work
  • Engaging people and performing as teams
  • Working better

Pragmatic and dogma-free, this book will help you understand what it means to be Agile and how to bring others along.
