This is one of the most inspiring and efficient books I’ve ever read. Agile mindset lives on every page of the book. The publication touches many PM areas and puts an agile cover on them. This might be a challenge to finish reading the book with no understanding the agile approach in IT projects. Agile thinking is revealed sometimes explicit, sometimes more subtle throughout the whole content.
