Agile Project Management for Government

Although the book is clearly focused on software development projects in a government context, I think that it can have a wider appeal, because some of the dysfunctional behaviors of some government organization can also be observed in private (especially large) corporation where the importance on control processes and the dispersion of responsibilities exist.

*** Quote of the Month ***

Teams that are capable of delivering iteratively should think about working on one goal at a time. Five consecutive milestones where each fulfils one business objective are generally better than one milestone that fulfils five partially, because the landscape might change after you fulfil a key objective.
