Project Management Book Shelf

Around 2007, I started to put together a list of books that could be the start of a library for how to be an Agile PM but then found this Amazon list which basically had the same books that I was going to suggest.

http://www.amazon.com/Agile-Development-Program-Manager/lm/R36O5A8FNYDWUS/ref=cm_lmt_dtpa_f_1_rdssss0?pf_rd_p=253462201&pf_rd_s=listmania-center&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=0131111558&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0BAAZ1V4TQYBWG589NQP

Here’s my take on the books

The Required Ones:

“Agile Software Development with SCRUM”

“Agile Estimating and Planning”

“User Stories Applied: For Agile Software Development”

 

I would also recommend:

“Agile and Iterative Development: A Manager’s Guide”

“Lean Software Development: An Agile Toolkit”

 

In addition, the following URLs are bookmarks that I regularly read or papers that were highly important to learning about agile.

If you “get” the books and the other info, the official “Scrum Master” title won’t mean a thing.
