Review: Pamela Meyer - The Agility Shift

I’ve read a lot of books about agile this year. While looking at some lists, I found this book by Pamela Meyer. I decided to read it! Here’s my short review on The Agility Shift.

As the title suggests, this book is about agile. For someone who has some background on the subject, there wasn’t much new in this book. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The book introduces the concepts and has the focus on changing mindsets.

I have struggled to get through this book. The last chapters felt more like a sales pitch for improv lessons. As if the author was sponsored by an improv tutor. Though I understand what she was going for, it kind of ruined the book for me. It’s not a bad book and can certainly help people towards the right mindset.

I was excited to read this book. In the end I got let down, understanding why the book does not have the high rating other books about the topic receive. I rate this book 3 stars. This book is worth the read if you know nothing about agile, but I wouldn’t recommend it to fellow agilists.
