Still not sure if agile project management is right for you? Here are some questions I’m often asked.
I didn’t go to college, can I still be a project manager?
Yes! Project management requires leadership skills—not specific degrees. The more experience you have from the projects you work on, the better you’ll get, and you will become more confident leading the teams.
Can the work be on-site or remote?
It can be both, since remote work is growing very quickly. Software tools have made it possible to work closely as a strong team, even when not located in the same place.
I’ve never been a programmer, how can I work on agile IT projects?
Fortunately, you don’t need special skills in programming or anything else in order to succeed as a project manager in agile.
What if I’ve never worked in agile project management?
You will just need the right guidance to learn the fundamentals of project management. I’ve provided everything you need to know in this book for you to start now.
If you have prior experience with traditional project management, you will like agile more because of its freedom. No matter which industry you’re in, agile is the way of the future.
You’ll be joining the success stories once you read the book and discover the secrets of being an agile project manager!

Excerpts from Amazon Reviews:
As a college business instructor, I find this book not only well-written but also a bountiful resource tool for those needing that self-esteem boost.
The author has done extensive research to write this book ... focuses a lot on what is known as transferable skills ... into project management.
One of the keen things that shine about this book is when the author discusses a new topic, he always discusses the advantages and disadvantages to it.
Overall, this is a book I'd recommend to my college students.
Described the flexible nature of project management, which in today's economic climate is critical to understand.
The material is well-organized and comprehensive; the use of sports analogies and terms helps the book's easy readability.
I liked the author's easy to follow writing style and practical examples used in the book. This book is perfect for all levels, from business students to upper management.
I was reading the PMbok book before for few long months and still, I have to force myself to complete it. But this one tells about all you need to know as a project manager in short words.
I own two businesses that are expanding ... the strategies will be helpful to me.
This book goes over and beyond the basics. Would definitely recommend ... if you plan to manage a team and want to accomplish more.
I absolutely love this eBook and topic. Let's face it test development (if you are not a geek) is boring and you need an eBook like this to make it more exciting. Well done Author!

The author focuses a lot on what is known as transferable skills. That method is most successful with military men and women. They come back from being deployed and wonder what civilian job they can now get. The author focuses on civilian people already doing civilian activities to show how those skills can be transferred into project management. Some examples he uses are a bit elementary to be transferred into a PM, such as “the best way to take notes during an important call”, while some are very spot on, such as “changed an old procedure to make it more efficient.”
He provides a wonderful list on the various stakeholders, and how they overlap. One of the keen things that shine about this book is when the author discusses a new topic, he always discusses the advantages and disadvantages to it. This way the reader can determine on their own the benefits. The author does a thorough job listing out the “tools”, or resources in project management. Most of them I’ve used before and how he summarizes them is quite accurate.
Overall, this is a book I’d recommend to my college students. Although, there were some statements I don’t necessarily agree with, such as, “People without self-confidence became leaders and helped not only themselves but their entire team.” (I believe you have to some self-confidence to lead, because if you don’t believe in yourself, even a tiny bit, no one else will), I do agree with many other statements such as, “A project is always unique.” As the title states “Beginner’s Guide”, this is a book that is geared towards the newbies of leadership or those curious what it takes to step into that role. It could also be a useful book for someone who was placed in leadership, but wasn’t ready for it. The ones who were promoted because they are good employees, but don’t have strong skills yet for such a role. This book could be a protective way of encouraging them to stay the course and strengthen their skills.
In spite of the fact that I'm not a fledgling, I'm more up to date to explicit methodologies and this book gave me the degree of information I was searching for. Composed by experienced lithe undertaking administrator, it begins with fundamental definitions, and afterward moves into ideas.
The group of writers from "Prepared, Set, Agile" has considered every contingency in this amazing manual presenting dexterous venture the board methods and techniques.
It's useful to go over significant rubrics like Waterfall, Kanban, Lean, Six Sigma, and so on It additionally gives the upsides and downsides of each and how to figure out which approach meets the customers needs. is an elegantly composed guide for project chiefs and business pioneers.
I enjoyed the writer's not difficult to follow composing style and useful models utilized in the book. This book is ideal for all levels, from business understudies to upper administration.
From distinguishing partners, to the nine administration territories: including time, degree, and cost. This book covers the arranging, setting (gatherings), and execution of run of the mill project. Incorporates a glossary, as well.
The material is efficient and extensive; the utilization of sports analogies and terms helps the book's simple comprehensibility. I discovered Chapter 9 and its genuine instances of both fruitful and bombed projects particularly accommodating. Strongly suggested, regardless of whether you're simply beginning or looking to up your game.
Bunches of other great stuff like achievement/disappointment and instances of APM and understanding on programming to utilize. Unquestionably an asset I'll continue to re-visitation of.

The book contains 166 pages of content. My first impressions was to notice that the book is written in a quite large bubbly sans serif font, and whilst this was jarring at first, I persevered.
48 pages in, however, the jig was up. This book offers comically poor, factually incorrect definitions for basic agile information such as the the purposes of a stand up, and confuses the purposes of a sprint review the goals of a retrospective. Merely a paragraph later, makes the claim that agile projects still need a project manager "just like waterfall projects" (which is awkward when the far shorter and easier to digest 15 page Scrum Guide - which is written by the creators of scrum and is given away for on their website for free - makes clear that there is no traditional project manager in an agile team, because the team is self-organising and self-directing, ergo they are all the project manager, together).
Such basic errors in comprehension made me suspicious about who the author was. This prompted me to flip back to the front cover, but their name is not present. I checked the first few pages inside, and it isn't there either. Who considers themselves to be an authority on a subject such that they write a book on it, but isn't brave enough to put their name to it?
It also made me suspicious about who may have written a review on the back of the book, or a forward for the book, because frankly, I was amazed that page 48 got past any editor who knew the subject matter and I wanted to know if there were any peers who were brave enough to put their name on the book in the form of an endorsement. Guess what? No reviews and no forward.
I will not be progressing past page 48. I will instead be looking to return this book and recollecting my money because this book is, in my professional opinion, not fit for purpose.
Maybe the first book that will end up in paper recycling
