Agile Project Management

"Jim Highsmith is one of a few modern writers who are helping us understand the new nature of work in the knowledge economy."
--Rob Austin. Assistant Professor

"This is the project management book we've all been waiting for - the book that effectively combines agile methods and rigorous project management. Not only does this book help us make sense of project management in this current world of iterative, incremental agile methods but the book is an all-around good read!"

Agile Software Development Ecosystems

By Jim Highsmith
Foreword by Tom DeMarco
Addison Wesley, 2002 IBSN 0-201-76043-6.

"Jim Highsmith has put all this together into a kind of survey introduction to the agile methodologies. He has had the good sense to present this not just as a discussion of concept, but to tell it as a story. As in any good story, it is the people who matter most. And so he tells us about agile approaches by telling us about its principal advocates and inventors, people like Kent Beck, Alistair Cockburn, Martin Fowler, and the other 'light methodologists.' These are the minds that are changing how IT gets done. Their story is what Agile Software Development Ecosystems is all about."
-- Tom DeMarco
