This book helps to really understand agile methodology
Ranenast
The book is a great introductory product for experienced project managers that are not familiar with the Agile Way. I highly recommend this book for other project managers.
Clonanau
I like the overall content of the book, but the publisher should be aware that many people require a little larger font size. Its unfortunate, because the author did a thoughtful job with the content.

Project Management the Agile Way is a content rich book that requires multiple readings to fully appreciate. I initially read the book but found myself returning to specific chapters in response to workspace situations. It was during this topic-focused re-read that the value of the book becomes apparent. I found that I agreed with most but disagreed with some of the recommendations in many cases, due to unique circumstances of attempting to be agile in a government program. The book is written more as a text book complete with end-of-module questions for review and critical thinking. These are helpful in aiding the reader gain an understanding of the material and should not be skipped.
John writes from the perspective of traditional project management and outlines a process to adapt these concepts to the agile environment. This perspective is especially valuable to the agile project manger in a non-agile organization. I believe that the true value for project managers is delivered in chapters ten through twelve. The discussion of value in chapter ten should help project managers understand that there are different definitions and measures of value and the fact that the project manager needs to understand how key stakeholders see the project providing value.
Despite the fact that agile is gaining in mainstream adoption there are many organizations that cling to traditional methods. Chapter 12,Transitioning to Agile is a valuable guide for that transition process.
I thorough enjoyed reading the book - "Project Management the Agile Way (Making it Work in the Enterprise)". I'm a system engineer and project manager who has worked on both large military, midsize commerial and a few start-up efforts for hard/software development and services. In the past I've used a wide range of complexity, rigor and formality in managing a project. With a basic belief - as simple as possible that works, and measure that it is works.

Goodpasture has created a well written and content rich (dense) book Project Management the Agile Way: Making It Work in the Enterprise that reviews the elements of "classic" project management with the assumption the reader has a basic understanding, agile variants and how they work in the same topic space and adds his expertise in quantitative methods for a more sophisticated decision making processes for planning, estimating and managing a project. The reader is given a 3 dimensional look at the chapter topics - classis, agile and quantitative view. Actually a fourth is provided for some with history and overview of the concept. There are "take aways" at the end of each chapter which is the author's blend as a baseline, or you can pick your own mix for your specific needs.

The book reads much better than most text books I've read on project management subject, and I've read many over the last 15 years. I was introduced to concepts and techniques that I had not read elsewhere, especially in the synthesis of different techniques, the authors insightful summaries of what is important. Hopefully these ideas will improve your ability to successfully manage future efforts.

I think the ideal use of this book is in a project management course (quarter or semester) that is focused on software/systems for IT or new product development. This could be tied to either a business, computer science or engineering focused curriculum.

It is also a good study and then reference for a project manager that has the basics of a project management methodology and wants a more complete understanding of the chapter topics.

From a teacher's perspective, using this book in an advanced project management seminar allows the student to be challenged with understanding the application of concepts, rather than just learning (reciting) a concept. Each chapter or two is a good sitting and has enough references for a class to explore a different one for each student.

This book is a well-blended compilation of classis PM, agile methods and quantitative methods and tools. Though the "theme" is agile methods, the author actually give as much coverage of the quantitative methods and the blending of the agile methods with classical approaches, for example to improve scaling agile techniques for enterprise level projects.

By the time you finish the book, concepts like Best Value will become part of your thinking process moving forward.

The first couple of chapters set the history, vocabulary and framework for the remaining chapters. Each chapter stands alone with a few references to earlier chapters as the reader go through the book. If you want to really understand the concepts with examples that force you to go beyond "OK, I got that" thinking - this is a very good book.

So my only warning is - if you don't like quantitative discussions (math), then you will most likely get lost or bored in the examples.

I've gone online to check out some of the references, which are extensive. I will probably spend the next couple of months of free time exploring the reference lists for more insights. Just the research and filtering of past writing goodness made the book reading worthwhile.

Summary

I agree with other reviews that Goodpasture stays neutral on methodologies, providing overviews and then detailed examples of good ideas and practices regardless of source and age. He is thorough and thoughtful in his considerations and descriptions. Examples, tips and most graphics make the reading both educational and enjoyable. One or two graphics could use some design changes to improve understanding.

This is a good study and course book that will require most to limit their readings to one or two chapters at a time so they absorb the details of each chapter. There is very little "fluff" in the 296 pages and the 2 appendixes. Once read, I have started to use the book as a reference when thinking through how I want to handle the various elements of project management for my current project.
