Book Summary:

The agile practice is only one of the many iterative methods devised by development leaders in the past. Fundamentally speaking, iterative methods opposed the overly-incremental approach of the waterfall method by using a multitude of smaller phases. These phases encompass the main parts of the waterfall method (requirement, design, implementation, verification, and maintenance); but done so in smaller, more frequent increments. These are also called ‘mini-waterfalls’. In essence, the agile practice moves through a life cycle of the waterfall development method in a much shorter amount of time. The ‘thought leaders’ behind the formation of the agile development practice refined it using 12 key principles. These principles will be discussed in Chapter 7 – The 12 Agile Principles, and will be applied in most of the lessons throughout this eBook.

Book Summary:

"1+1=3. That is the equation that summarizes the theme of this book. The book’s message is to integrate the developmental principles of Agile with the result-focused approaches integral to performance consulting. Your outcomes in shaping human performance will be significant--and greater than if you only used one of these models. This is a book for anyone who seeks to work collaboratively with leaders to bring about continuously improving and sustainable organizational change." --Dana Gaines Robinson, coauthor of Performance Consulting Agile Performance Improvement demonstrates the mutual benefits that accrue to the worlds of performance consulting and agile software development when the values and principles of both are blended synergistically under the guidance of practitioners skilled in both. The agile performance improvement model blends the principles of human performance technology with the frameworks and practices of Agile. The result is an approach that maximizes the value of interactions among the consultant, the work team, and the customer. Unlike traditional end-to-end waterfall processes, agile performance improvement delivers value continuously and in small increments, relentlessly focusing on outcomes of value to the customer. Building on structures of Agile that are used in software development, such as Scrum, the agile performance improvement model considers the human component of holistic solutions in establishing a continuous stream of value. Bob Winter, a performance consultant, was the product owner for the corporate education scrum supporting an agile transition initiative for hundreds of engineering teams. From this cross-disciplinary experience, he discovered that the two cultures, two languages, and two methodologies of performance consulting and agile software development are—far from being incongruent, incompatible, or irrelevant to each other—in fact ideally suited to complement and support each other. Being agile improves the effectiveness of the performance consultant, and applying the lessons of human performance technology improves the effectiveness of software development teams. In Agile Performance Improvement, Winter teaches performance consultants how to apply agile principles, values, and methods usefully to the tasks of optimizing human performance in areas of practice not only adjoining but also well beyond the realm of software and IT engineering, such as corporate learning solutions, human resources systems, and non-software products. Conversely, he shows engineering teams immersed in an agile environment how to boost their performance using the principles and techniques taught and cultivated by performance consultants. The author, who has worked extensively on both sides of the traditional divide, recounts entertainingly but informatively how both sparks and fur can fly when geeks encounter people people.

Book Summary:

Building a successful product usually involves teams of people, and many choose the Scrum approach to aid in creating products that deliver the highest possible value. Implementing Scrum gives teams a collection of powerful ideas they can assemble to fit their needs and meet their goals. The ninety-four patterns contained within are elaborated nuggets of insight into Scrum’s building blocks, how they work, and how to use them. They offer novices a roadmap for starting from scratch, yet they help intermediate practitioners fine-tune or fortify their Scrum implementations. Experienced practitioners can use the patterns and supporting explanations to get a better understanding of how the parts of Scrum complement each other to solve common problems in product development. The patterns are written in the well-known Alexandrian form, whose roots in architecture and design have enjoyed broad application in the software world. The form organizes each pattern so you can navigate directly to organizational design tradeoffs or jump to the solution or rationale that makes the solution work. The patterns flow together naturally through the context sections at their beginning and end. Learn everything you need to know to master and implement Scrum one step at a time—the agile way.

Those changes are likely to dramaticallychange the role of project managers in many environments as we haveknown them and raise the bar for the entire project managementprofession; however, we are in the early stages of thattransformation and there is a lot of confusion about the impact ithas on project managers: There are many stereotypes and misconceptions that exist aboutboth Agile and traditional plan-driven project management, Agile and traditional project management principles andpractices are treated as separate and independent domains ofknowledge with little or no integration between the two andsometimes seen as in conflict with each other Agile and "Waterfall" are thought of as two binary,mutually-exclusive choices and companies sometimes try to force-fittheir business and projects to one of those extremes when the rightsolution is to fit the approach to the project It’s no wonder that many Project Managers might beconfused by all of this! This book will help project managersunravel a lot of the confusion that exists; develop a totally newperspective to see Agile and traditional plan-driven projectmanagement principles and practices in a new light as complementaryto each other rather than competitive; and learn to develop anadaptive approach to blend those principles and practices togetherin the right proportions to fit any situation. There are many books on Agile and many books on traditionalproject management but what’s very unique about this book isthat it takes an objective approach to help you understand thestrengths and weaknesses of both of those areas to see how they canwork synergistically to improve project outcomes in anyproject. The book includes discussion topics, real world casestudies, and sample enterprise-level agile frameworks thatfacilitate hands-on learning as well as an in-depth discussion ofthe principles behind both Agile and traditional plan-drivenproject management practices to provide a more thorough level ofunderstanding.

Book Summary:

Digital tools have long been a transformative part of academia, enhancing the classroom and changing the way we teach. Yet there is a way that academia may be able to benefit more from the digital revolution: by adopting the project management techniques used by software developers. Agile work strategies are a staple of the software development world, developed out of the need to be flexible and responsive to fast-paced change at times when “business as usual” could not work. These techniques call for breaking projects into phases and short-term goals, managing assignments collectively, and tracking progress openly. Agile Faculty is a comprehensive roadmap for scholars who want to incorporate Agile practices into all aspects of their academic careers, be it research, service, or teaching. Rebecca Pope-Ruark covers the basic principles of Scrum, one of the most widely used models, and then through individual chapters shows how to apply that framework to everything from individual research to running faculty committees to overseeing student class work. Practical and forward-thinking, Agile Faculty will help readers not only manage their time and projects but also foster productivity, balance, and personal and professional growth.
