Not only does this book help us make sense of project management in this current world of iterative, incremental Agile methods, but it's an all-around good read!"--Lynne Ellen, Sr. VP & CIO, DTE Energy"Finally a book that reconciles the passion of the Agile Software movement with the needed disciplines of project management. Jim's book has provided a service to all of us."--Neville R(oy) Singham, CEO, ThoughtWorks, Inc."The world of product development is becoming more dynamic and uncertain.
