Access method: Restringido a usuarios de la UCASummary: If you have tried to implement Agile in your organization, you have probably learned a lot about development practices, teamwork, processes and tools, but too little about how to manage such an organization. Yet managerial support is often the biggest impediment to successfully adopting Agile, and limiting your Agile efforts to those of the development teams while doing the same old-style management will dramatically limit the ability of your organization to reach the next Agile level. ©Ñ{uE9E5}l Medinilla will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what Agile means to an organization and the managerÌ{u1498}©s role in such an environment, i.e., how to manage, lead and motivate self-organizing teams and how to create an Agile corporate culture. Based on his background as a Ì{u1498}»veteranÌ{u1498}{u0067}ile consultant for companies of all sizes, he delivers insights and experiences, points out possible pitfalls, presents practical approaches and possible scenarios, also including detailed suggestions for further reading. If you are a manager, team leader, evangelist, change agent (or whatever nice title) and if you want to push Agile further in your organization, then this is your book. You will read how to change the paradigm of what management is about: it is not about arbitrary decisions, constant supervision and progress control, and the negotiation of changing requirements. It is about motivation, self-organization, responsibility, and the exploitation of all project stakeholdersÌ{u1498}© knowledge. We live in a different world than the one that most management experts of the 20<sup>th</sup> century describe, and companies that strive for success and excellence will need a new kind of manager- Agile managers.
