The word Agile has grown to mean many things. You’re not alone if you have ever found yourself thinking: “What is agile, really? Does agile work? How can I use agile on my projects?”.
It seems every man and his dog has an interpretation these days. There is a world of confusion about what works, what doesn’t, what is worth your time and what is just noise.
Dan explains agile concepts using a friendly and simple approach. The book is packed with practical real-world tactics that can be used immediately on any project. There is a treasure-trove of valuable lessons-learned from several successfully completed multi-million-dollar projects.
Don’t Spook the Herd! provides insights into a crucial idea: agile projects are successful when the people involved are focussed on delivering and comfortable with adjusting priorities based on actual outputs and results.
