Agile Estimating and Planning
Mike Cohn

Agile Estimating and Planning provides a view of planning that’s balanced between theory and practice, and it is supported by enough concrete experiences to lend it credibility. I particularly like the quote ‘planning is a quest for value.’ It points to a new, more positive attitude toward planning that goes beyond the ‘necessary evil’ view that I sometimes hold.” —Kent Beck, author of Extreme Programming Explained, Second Edition

Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great
Esther Derby

Project retrospectives help teams examine what went right and what went wrong on a project. But traditionally, retrospectives (also known as “post-mortems”) are only helpful at the end of the project–too late to help. You need agile retrospectives that are iterative and incremental. You need to accurately find and fix problems to help the team today. The tools and recipes in this book will help you uncover and solve hidden (and not-so-hidden) problems with your technology, your methodology, and those difficult “people” issues on your team.

Mary Poppendieck & Tom Poppendieck

“Manjit's ability as a trainer and leader are unparalleled in my experience. I have seen talented trainers in small forums or for specific tasks, but never before have I seen someone who is capable of leading a large group of strong willed people to learn and adopt completely new habits for such a wide range of skills.”
