The Agile Almanac - Book 1 became an Amazon #1 Best Seller just days after its on December 15, 2015. The Agile Almanac - Book 2  is set to be released on October 21, 2017 and is expected to also become an Amazon #1 Best Seller within hours.  

If you want to understand Agile best practices and the science behind them, the Agile Almanac is an unbiased, well-researched, 3-volume series of the most used and proven standards, produced in a way that avoids the accusatory dogmatic viewpoints often expressed by the evangelists on any side of the Agile versus Traditional battlefield. The Almanac series has collected and codified the various Agile choices and options available at the intersection of Lean Principles, Product Development and Project Management.

The Almanac extends that thought leadership into non-software environments and presents the information in an easily accessible and immediately applicable fashion in order to serve as a Field Guide for practitioners in the real world!

What makes the Agile Almanac the most significant series available to Agile Practitioners?

First, because, at the highest level, the Agile domain can be divided into three sub-domains, namely, Agile 1.0 for Single-team Projects and Exam Prep, Agile 2.0 for Programs with Multi- and Virtual-team Environments, and Agile 3.0 for Portfolio Management and Enterprise Scaling, each domain is covered in its own book in the Agile Almanac series. Each book allows Practitioners and Organizations to select precisely the content they need and zero in on applying it in the ways best suited to the context of their environments.
