This book covers the guiding principles and process of Agile perfectly in terms of detail and relevance in the real-world. Many books obsess with certain ceremonies in Agile and Scrum that most organisations and people running Agile teams understand pretty well already. I like how this book extends the basic understanding in the Agile domain and continually ties it back to real-world examples and challenges.
On the financial aspects side, this is the first book I've come across that fills the gap in financial measurement and forecasting in Agile, or at least provides some genuine options on how to do so. It clearly defines a path for financially diligent and expectant organisations to get that piece of mind that going Agile doesn't mean losing track of the P&L!
A great read for everyone embarking on an agile journey that needs to consider a business case and ongoing benefits realization.
Packed with useful information, and convincingly well written, this title may prove to be a missing link for agile. This publication does an excellent job at shedding light on the arcane, and often overlooked, financial aspects within agile projects.
Alan articulates techniques to apply in given situations within an agile project. He demonstrates his understanding and practical experience for a variety of topics, such as risk management and currency hedging, which impressed me greatly.
Alan clearly, and thoughtfully, states the skills required for an agile financial management role. The title is expansive and easy to understand, guiding the reader through key concepts and requirements.
