Agile and Lean Program Management: Scaling Collaboration Across the Organization Reviews
This is a difficult book for me to review. It is a subject i'm very familiar with. At the I thought this was the worst book I've ever read on the subject and decided that it deserves only one star. At other times, I felt the author was quite insightful and that it was much better than the average books on the subject. I've had a hard time clarifying this to myself, but I'll try to explain that in the review and keep the review at an average of 3 stars. Before that, let me first summarize the main themes of the book.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It offered great advice for not just the structure of the program team but best practices and trouble-shooting for each role in the team and offered alternate ways of working based on the needs and maturity of your organization.
Solid book on all agile concepts and how to navigate program mgmt.
Whether you are coming from the Agile side of the house, or have a more traditional background, Johanna Rothman’s Agile and Lean Program Management is something you are going to want to have on hand if you are trying to manage work at the program and portfolio level within a work context that incorporates Agile and Lean practices.
this is a great book, starting with the phrase "Scaled agile is simply program management". This book helped me to communicate with others around why having a PMO was not a bad but a great idea in a growing agile company, and she has great insight into how to solve common challenges. Also highly recommend Daniel Vacanti's work.
I have read a number of Johanna Rothman's books. This one fills a big void in the agile community talking about agile and lean at scale without all of the silliness of the scaling frameworks. Practical advice with well written prose. She explains very clearly a lot of concepts that I had always thought, but had a hard time expressing.
I have over 6 years of Agile PM experience but only a couple years of Scaled Agile - so there's still a lot I can learn. The book does a great job at highlighting some techniques and tools, and provides examples that can be leveraged, for Agile efforts at the scaled or program level. Great for refining skills and adding to the toolbox.
