Agile Project Management for Dummies, 2nd Edition

Platinum Edge, LLC is excited to announce that, in conjunction with Wiley Sons, a second edition of the popular book Agile Project Management For Dummies has been released with a modernized and expanded focus on applying agile principles and practices beyond software development as well as chapters on scaling and affecting change.

Written by Mark Layton and Steve Ostermiller, Agile Project Management For Dummies 2nd Edition is the first step to learning about agile principles, including how they can help deliver the highest possible value to customers early, often, and in response to ever changing needs.

In the second edition, the change agent chapter has been revised to set a better stage for what it means for an organization to change their mindset and take a more agile approach. It also provides overviews of common change management models, including Platinum Edge’s model.

Additionally, since many organizations run into roadblocks with scaling, a new chapter on scaling has been created. It first defines what scaling is and why it may or may not be necessary, then highlights aspects of some of the more common scaling models for bringing people and teams together on large, multi-team projects.

The second edition of Agile Project Management For Dummies is currently available on the Platinum Edge website, Amazon, and from other retailers. More information can be found here: https://platinumedge.com/store
