Early Release of Agile and Lean Program Management Available

Agile and Lean Program Management: Scaling Collaboration Across the OrganizationI have finished integrating comments from the early review of Agile and Lean Program Management: Scaling Collaboration Across the Organization. I decided that the book was good enough to release to the general public.

I find it difficult to release books in progress. The in-progress part challenges my perfection rules. I also know that some of you who want this book will wait until it’s done, or worse, available in paper.

However, since this is an agile and lean book, it seems nuts to not release it, even though it is not quite done.

If you get the book, please send me comments about what confused you, what you thought was crazy, and anything else.

Thanks so much!

    You should pick up a copy of Dan Rawsthorne’s ( leanpub.com/PPSAD ), compare notes 😉

      Marcelo, I will. However, I don’t believe in scaling Scrum. Scrum works great for one team, even two. It does not provide program management. “Scaled” Scrum creates a hierarchy, which none of us need if we want to be agile and lean. My book talks about how to help networks of people deliver.

        I hear you, but don’t get too bound by the terminology. Still, talk to Dan, can’t hurt. I already told him about your book, and we now both own copies of it. 🙂
