About the Book

The purpose of this book, "Advanced ChatGPT and Agile Project Management," is to

provide a comprehensive guide for advanced users of ChatGPT and experienced

Agile Project Managers. The book aims to bridge the gap between the

cutting-edge technology of AI, specifically the ChatGPT model, and 

the dynamic, iterative practices of Agile Project Management.

The objective is to explore how the capabilities of ChatGPT can be harnessed

to enhance various phases, practices, and techniques of Agile Project 

Management. This includes envisioning, speculating, exploring,

adapting, and closing phases of the Agile lifecycle. The book provides practical

examples, detailed explanations, and prompt engineering techniques

to integrate ChatGPT into Agile practices effectively.
