Extreme Project Management

by Doug DeCarlo

This excellent book dramatically advances the start–of–the–art in agile project management. It goes well beyond any other book on the subject, covering such new ground as how to work with stakeholders, how to assess whether projects are worth doing, how to create a useful plan, and how to work with senior management.

Unlike many agile books, this book is not specifically about software development. It is applicable to any product development effort. I’m a software professional, but everything in the book was relevant and interesting to me. Regardless of what type of product development you are doing, I recommend this book very highly.

This is not a book you’ll read and file away. It will become a standard reference for years to come.
