Agile Project Management

[ #26796 ]
I'm reading APM, the new Highsmith book. I really stuggled with this book - Highsmith spends the first hundred pages or so hitting us over the head with the concept of agility. Blah blah blah, the factory analogy doesn't work, blah blah blah the best products come from self-organized teams, blah blah examples, blah blah more Philosophy I allready agree with.

Then he finally gets to the good stuff. Most of it is recompiling and repacking the existing body of knowledge, but after sixty more pages, I do have a couple of ideas to take home and reconsider.

Overall, I'd say the book is best framed as an introduction to agile methods for people only familiar with old-school PMI/Waterfall projects. The intended audience for this book actually _do_ need a gentle introduction. That just makes me ... very sad.
