An Agile Approach to Release Management

My Agile SCM co-authors Rob Cowham, Steve Berczuk, and myself have written an article for the May CM Journal on An Agile Approach to Release Management

We're relatively pleased with the article, and all collaborated together quite well.

BOOK: Software Teamwork - Taking Ownership for Success

My review of Jim Brosseau's Software Teamwork: Taking Ownership for Success is available in the May issue of the Agile Journal. It is nothing less than outstanding!

I found Software Teamwork to be an immensely helpful, intensely practical, profusely insightful field guide to improving team outcomes and changing team behaviors by focusing on interpersonal action and personal leadership. This book belongs on any software team-leader's bookshelf, along with Jean Tabaka's Collaboration Explained and Murray Cantor's Software Leadership.

Other articles in this issue on the theme of "Challenges with Distributed Agile" are:

From PMBoK to Agility

I recently learned that Michelle Sliger, author of the wonderful 4 part series of articles on Relating PMBoK to Agile Practices, is co-authoring a book with Stacia Broderick entitled the Software Project Manager's Bridge to Agility. You can even download an excerpt from her website.

I'm looking forward to this book a great deal, judging by the excellent articles and presentations of hers that I've read.
