Agile Book Recommendations

This content is syndicated from Do It Yourself Agile by Damon Poole. To view the original post in full, click here.

The following books are the main books that I recommend as starting points for learning about the various aspects of Agile. While their is a fair amount of overlap each of them covers a specific topic. The one on leading self-directed teams is not strictly an "Agile" book, but it is one of the few books talking about self-managed/self-organized/self-directed teams that I have found. The Toyota way is also not an "Agile" book but does a great job of explaining the concepts of Lean which I believe are the foundation for Agile.

    That is a lot of books! I’ve updated my post to make it clearer what I meant. :) I really meant for the various aspects. They cover Unit Testing, Product Ownership, Kanban, etc.

What People Say

“Kelly is an Agile heavy-weight. He came in to assess my multi-million $ Agile development program which wasn’t delivering the right throughput. He interviewed most of the team and made some key recommendations that, when implemented, showed immediate results. I couldn’t ask for more than that except he’s a really nice guy as well.”
