Run your project Agile! - said the CTO

A book to help you with tools and tips on starting Agile projects

About the Book

You work for a company that until now has been delivering projects following a heavy process and now there is a need to start delivering in an Agile way. Your new project will be maybe one of the first pilots. You know some basics on what Agile is, the need for frequent deliveries, focus on value, self-organizing teams where people collaborate, empirical planning, etc. What now? Where do you begin with your very first Agile project? What to do to get things going and deliver fast?

I will bring you my experience from different teams that I have worked with, either as Scrum Master or Agile Coach. In this book, I will walk you through some of the tools and techniques I have used and found helpful, like Agile Project Canvas, Value Stream mapping, Story mapping, etc. You will have an opportunity to learn how to apply these tools and techniques right away to your Agile projects, with teams that are new to Agile or maybe are looking for more and better ways to deliver
