Leading Agile Teams is a practical and engaging guide to help your organization embrace a more agile mindset.

Most organizations work in large groups when trying to find solutions for big problems. Agile teams are different. They get more done by having a small self-organized team focus on the highest priority items. Each big problem is broken down and solved by a small, stable group of dedicated professionals.

This book will give you the knowledge and tools you need to create and sustain strong agile teams. It is written for the developers, project managers, product owners, and ScrumMasters, who do most of the legwork in getting agile up and running.

Included in the book are an introduction to the agile slide deck, spreadsheets for your first product backlog, a sample chart for reporting, an example agile project charter, and many other files you’ll need for meetings. These will be the tools you use to convince your coworkers of the benefits of making a large-scale agile transformation.
