Recommended reading


“Whenever I am asked about some good reads, I usually start with these industry classics. There are of course many other good books and many other great authors, but I see great value in the fact that it is not always just ‘do this, do that’. These books are quick and easy to read and therefore more likely to be discussed in-depth soon.”   – Björn Lindqvist

Scaling Software Agility av Dean Leffingwell

Dean L. is the father of SAFe, but this book is not focused only on that.
It is a sensible collection of the author’s experiences and thoughts on Agile work, including tips and recommendations.  It also has some parts about what top management should know when large-scale Agile is introduced and implemented. [Adlibris]
