This book is a little bit different in the project management category. Its goal is to present an open framework and not a prescriptive model. Many project managers prefer to apply existing recipes for their project, but if you are ready to step out of your comfort zone, you will find in this books many ingredients to create your own recipe to manage software development projects.
Traditional project models work well in a context where both the goal and the solution are clearly identified, but an adaptive project framework is needed when these elements are not clearly known. This book is well presented with a clear style. Case studies allow the reader to get a better understanding on how to apply the proposed framework in the real life. I strongly recommend this book to every project manager and software development manager.
