Are you being asked to manage a project with:

- unclear requirements?
- high levels of change?
- a team using Extreme Programming or other Agile Methods?

If you are a project manager or team leader who is interested in learning the secrets of successfully controlling and delivering agile projects, then you have come to the right place.

From learning how agile projects are different from traditional projects, to detailed guidance on a number of agile management techniques and how to introduce them onto your own projects, we have the insider secrets from some of the industry experts – the visionaries who developed the agile methodologies in the first place.

Other books on the topic present a single management method for agile projects; this one, however, presents management techniques that are common to all agile development methods. So, whether you are using Extreme Programming (XP), Scrum, Feature-Driven Development (FDD), one of the Crystal Methods, Lean Development, Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM), or any other agile method, this book is written for you.

Managing Agile Projects contains well over 400 pages packed full of insider tips on how to make these methods work for you. Chapters focus on topics critical to the success of projects facing changing requirements and seemingly impossible deadlines. Chapters cover topics such as engineering unstable requirements, active stakeholder participation, conducting agile meetings, extreme testing, agile documentation, and how to use agile methods under fixed price contracts. The book also provides information to help you plan your agile projects better to avoid some common pitfalls introduced by the fast pace and concurrent activities common to agile development methods. This book will show you the tricks to keeping agile projects under control.

You can apply some of the techniques in this book to your current project, right now. Why wait any longer?
