Positiv författare med glimten i ögat men tyvärr var nyttan för min del låg. Ostrukturerat innehåll och breda generaliseringar av ett svårt område.
I dont care for cookbooks, as in 5 steps to success at whatever. I like books that urge you to thinkthat present new ideas and get mental juices flowing. Jurgens book is in this latter category; it asks us to think about leading and managing as a complex undertakingespecially in todays turbulent world. Management 3.0 offers managers involved in agile/lean transformations a thought-provoking guide how they themselves can become agile.

An up-to-the-minute, relevant round-up of research and practice on complexity and management, cogently summarized and engagingly presented.
David Harvey, Independent Consultant, Teams and Technology
Management 3.0 is an excellent book introducing agile to management. Ive not seen any book that comes near to what this book offers for managers of agile teams. Its not only a must read, its a must share.
Olav Maassen, Xebia
If you want hard fast rules like if x happens, do y to fix it forget this book. Actually forget about a management career. But if you want tons of ideas on how to make the work of your team more productive and thereby more fun and thereby more productive and thereby more fun andread this book! You will get a head start on this vicious circle along with a strong reasoning on why the concepts work.
Jens Schauder, Software Developer, LINEAS
There are a number of books on managing Agile projects and transitioning from being a Project Manager to working in an Agile setting. However, there isnt much on being a manager in an Agile setting. This book fills that gap, but actually addresses being an effective manager in any situation. The breadth of research done and presented as background to the actual concrete advice adds a whole other element to the book. And all this while writing in an entertaining style as well.
Scott Duncan, Agile Coach/Trainer, Agile Software Qualities
Dont get tricked by the word Agile used in the subtitle. The book isnt really about Agile; it is about healthy, sensible and down-to-earth management. Something, which is still pretty uncommon.
Pawel Brodzinski, Software Project Management
When I first met Jurgen and learned he was writing a book based on complexity theory, I thought, That sounds good, but Ill never understand it. Books with words like entropy, chaos theory, and thermodynamics tend to scare me. In fact, not only did I find Management 3.0 accessible and easy to understand, I can [also] apply the information immediately, in a practical way. It makes sense that software teams are complex adaptive systems, and a relief to learn how to apply these ideas to help our teams do the best work possible. This book will help...
Jurgen Appelo is a writer, speaker, trainer, developer, entrepreneur, manager, blogger, reader, dreamer, leader, and freethinker. And he's Dutch, which explains his talent for being weird. After studying software engineering at the Delft University of Technology, and earning his Master's degree in 1994, Jurgen busied himself either starting up or leading a variety of Dutch businesses, always in the position of team leader, manager, or executive. Jurgen's most recent occupation was CIO at ISM eCompany, one of the largest e-business solution providers in The Netherlands. As a manager, Jurgen has experience in leading software developers, development managers, project managers, quality managers, service managers, and kangaroos, some of which he hired accidentally. He is primarily interested in software development and complexity theory, from a manager's perspective. As a writer he has published papers and articles in many magazines, and he maintains a blog at www.noop.nl. As a speaker he is regularly invited to talk at seminars and conferences. Last but not least, Jurgen is a trainer, with workshops based on the Management 3.0 model. His materials address the topics of energizing people, empowering teams, aligning constraints, developing competence, growing structure, and improving everything. However, sometimes he puts all writing, speaking, and training aside to do some programming himself, or to spend time on his ever-growing collection of science fiction and fantasy literature, which he stacks in a self-designed book case that is four meters high. Jurgen lives in Rotterdam (The Netherlands)--and sometimes in Brussels (Belgium)--with his partner Raoul. He has two kids and an imaginary hamster called George.
