LOS ANGELES, CA, May 01, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Agile Project Management for Dummies, by Mark C. Layton, Certified Scrum Trainer, is the first book to provide a simple, step-by-step guide to agile project management approaches, tools, and techniques. Agile project management is one of the fastest-growing management techniques in business today. As mobile and web technologies continue to evolve rapidly, there is added pressure to develop and implement software projects in days and weeks instead of months and years.
Over the past decade Mark has trained and coached Global 1000 companies, regional leaders and aggressive start-ups on how to successfully run agile projects. Through his work he found there was a need for a simple, digestible guide that the average person could understand and use.
Mark C. Layton's book, "offers a practical context for understanding and applying agile techniques, moving from theory into actual practice". It is meant to be a field manual giving you the tools and information you need to be successful with agile processes in the trenches of project management.
You can purchase the book on Wiley and Sons website, at Barnes and Noble stores and bn.com, Amazon.com and other fine book retailers.
