    1 thought on “Management 3.0: Leading Agile Developers, Developing Agile Leaders

    1. This book made me think.Jurgen managed to write a book that links the tons of books he has read. Although there were a few moments I did not agree with him, I loved the way this book challenges my thinking. This is the perfect book if you want to know how to create your own answers in this complex world.

    2. It's a great book. Presents a great model for many aspects of managing software development.For example, it puts the manager in a position of working together with the team, rather than a position of authority. Nice theoretical references, practical advice and real project storytelling.Not a 5 star because of the promise of at least 2 good jokes. I couldn't find them. Seriously, there are quite a few weird metaphors and analogies that are very hard to relate to, some extra jokes between parenthe [...]

    3. This book is absolutely marvellous! A gem with so many takeaways I couldn't read it when I didn't have my highlighter with me. Few works make so much sense throughout the whole book as this one and it's very important to note that it's based on actual research not just random thoughts of a successful manager. I recommend it to all managers of any industry, team leads and senior software developers.

    4. itknowledgeexchange.techtargetBook Review: Management 3.0 by Jurgen Appelo: An Excellent ApproachManagement 3.0: Leading Agile Developers, Developing Agile Leaders (Addison-Wesley Signature Series (Cohn)) by Jurgen Appelo is talks about the relationship between an organization and management and how the success of failure depends a lot on this relationship. As we go by the chapters, we learn to know that at times it is not any external factors that becomes a failure factor for Agile development [...]

    5. The practical parts are superb. I especially like the chapters about team empowerment, about developing competence and Appelos definition of competency (skill + discipline). I can say from first hand experience that a lot of this seems to go into the right direction, since the team I've worked in for the majority of this year successfully tried out some of the (for us Germans) crazier ideas (like the value exercise, sharing personality profiles and running experiments with the team setup). For t [...]

    6. As the first proper management book I've read (at least to completion) it's difficult to compare this to other management books. However I still believe this is a fantastic book.The first part of the book presents a general overview of Management, Agile Software Development and Complexity Theory. The second part alternates between theory and practise of Jurgen's model.For me this is a very different view of management than I've previously been aware of, and having an interest in Complexity Theor [...]

    7. Yes, I gave this book 5 stars, but it really wasn't easy to evaluate.On one hand, Jurgen is a really sharp fellow & book is packed with a lot of interesting insights, ideas, concepts & references to another sources. The content really seems relevant & clearly applies to manager's role, especially in somehow "agile" environment.On the other hand though, the form of this book feels very soft. I've made some bookmarks to catch the most important (IMHO) messages, but truth is that this b [...]

    8. Reading this book is like reading an executive summary of many other management books and tons of research made in this field. Saves you a lot of time and makes it quite efficient, but at the same time the format becomes a bit special with all the referrals to other sources.The book itself is good but not great, the author makes good conclusions and have a good way to mix in examples from the normal life. He also uses his own experience in a way that makes the book a bit less heavy to digest. I [...]

    9. From unnecessary and inappropriate sexual jokes (e.g. p. 81: "Some businesses are adept at providing opportunities for eating, sex, and vengeance (I'm just joking, of course).") to the disparaging of diversity-promoting efforts (a tone-deaf blog post shared on p. 87-88) to the condescending discussion of creatives working outside of tech (regarding a technical concept: "They probably don't even know what it is." - p. 57), this book makes for a deeply disturbing read. It's a shame because there a [...]

    10. Unlike the usual business books, this one is so inspiring and solidly based on literature, scientific research and lesson learned that make it an absolute must read for everyone who deals with an organization - any of them

    11. It is one of the most important books about this topic. From my point of view, it is a required novel for anybody who wants to improve management skills.It is a funny book but few chapters are very difficult.

    12. Management is changing.Things are not as simple as we thought, and their behavior not as predictable.This book is a good first step to introduce complexity theories in the body of knowledge of management. Specially in management of software organisations.

    13. The book is targeted at Agile management of software development teams but the ideas within it are not specific to them. It is written in a mixture of anecdotes, theories from scientific papers and practical approaches you can take. The target is to present a model which has 6 "views"; Energise people, Empower teams, Align constraints, Develop competence, Grow structure & Improve everything. Here are the things which I noted from each of these views.Energise people - Innovation is the key to [...]

    14. Yay, I've made it ! So this sentece is suggesting a bit why I gave that book only three stars - this book is surprisingly hard to read. I have managed to finish it only after third approach, whereas previous attempts failed miserably. Don't get me wrong:- I (almost) fully agree with the conclusions,- The book is funny enough sometimes,- I knew more or less the content before reading the book (and I knew that I agree with it),- I attended the the Management 3.0 training lead by Jurgen himself,- I [...]

    15. I have met Jurgen in one of the conference and after understanding his knowledge in Agile, I started to review his book. In my past several years of teaching experience on topics of Distributed Agile, i came across experts who spoke about leadership in agile projects but i would have to admit that Jurgen has come across quite different in his articulation on how an agile leader should be developed. In his book, Jurgen has given a very realistic approach on how to develop leaders and nurture them [...]

    16. This book is smart. It took me a lot of time to read it from cover to cover, because it was also quite hard (for me ;)). It’s a book that has the word “management” in the title, but inside you find things like Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle or Chaos Theory. Not something that someone would expect from a book about management. The author has also a great sense of humour, so it’s really funny.The main idea of the book is that software development teams are complex adaptive systems. T [...]

    17. The book is good, although with a title Management 3.0. I expected a bit more. The theoretical chapters are sometimes too long, but I admit they provide a good metaphor and background for the practical chapters - I particularly liked the analogy with fitness landscape.The practical chapters were mostly good - with reflection and action section at the end of each, provoking your thought on how to apply the practices to your organization.

    18. Really good book and Jurgen is doing very good job on synthetizing many ideas from many sources. I thought about 4 as I try now to give 5 for life changing things but maybe actually it's a bit of lifechanging because maybe I'm finally at the point to be even less model/methodology/practice/ agnostic.

    19. Anotações que fiz lendo as primeiras páginas do livro. Indico para qualquer gestor e também para qualquer profissional de RH. Management 1.0 — HierarquiasEsse é o tipo tradicional de gerenciamento, onde o poder está nas mãos de poucos, onde a palavra de ordem é comandar e controlar. Algumas pessoas chamam isso de “scientific management”, cuja a ideia é que a empresa é organizada e gerenciada de cima para baixo. Onde os cargos no topo da hierarquia tem os salários mais altos, [...]

    20. Management 3.0 is a must-read for any aspiring leader in the knowledge industry. If you are working with a skilled, thinking, innovating team - or wondering your work force is not that, and want to make your team do all that, read this book. All the classics from MBA school treat humans as predictable machines. The world has come a long way in understanding how people are motivated - starting from a education context to that of an organization. We used to think linearly, then came systems thinki [...]

    21. I've read a prerelease copy of this book, then the first edition, and recently the Kindle version. And only now, after reading it three times, do I get around to writing a review. That's because the first two times I read this book, it sent me off on a reading spree that had me dive into complexity theory and complex adaptive systems. I agree with three-star reviewer Glen B. Alleman that the book is a bit anecdotal. That might not be to everyone's taste. The anecdotal style serves a purpose thou [...]

    22. Management 3.0 is an excellent book. Even though the name might promise a one more management model to learn, Jurgen Appelo tells that there isn't a model that would suit all. To be more precise, Jurgen tells that all models have their flaws. He does say that models are important, but we need to remember that all companies, products, people and environment are different in every case.Jurgen does give his view on what is important in Management in the future. His model has six major themes, which [...]

    23. I have set myself the goal of reading one job related book a year and this was this years' lucky book.It was a good pick as it was a realtively easy read. It avoided the unnecessary duplication favoured by so many American academics (the all seemed to have gone on the course of say what your going to say then say it and then tell them what you've said course and missed the part where the course was for presentations and not books). I enjoyed the way that theory from other areas was brought in an [...]

    24. This book is really hard to rate - some of it is inspired, thought-provoking, relevant - but some of it is utter dross.I had high expectations for this book as it was independently recommended to me three times over a six week period If you are a structural chemist, skip over the picture of "bulk water structure" on page 4. It gets better.The key theses of the book are the 6 views of "management 3.0". It is written in a friendly and accessible style. The structure of the book, with alternating t [...]

    25. Very interesting overview of modern management, from a Complexity Theory perspective. I liked the strong connections with natural sciences, reinforcing the notion that when managing organizations we're dealing with living organisms.Best chapters for me: those discussing self-organization and the nature of change.The structure of "theory vs. practice" chapters is a good idea, but sometimes the "practical" chapter didn't feel actionable enough.The author has an informal, "tongue in cheek" style th [...]

    26. Are managers the reason why the agile (r)evolution is hampered within organisations? Or more positively put: what can and should be done to nurture the agile culture and see its growth in your organisation? Acknowledging that organisations and their culture are complex systems, he draws from current scientific insights in complexity theory in lending a hand to overcome this obstacle of management. Even better so, he provides for the insights that will definitely embarque managers onto a path of [...]

    27. This was recommended at the end of a short lecture given for a group of startups who were in need of CTO's. This book deeply resonates with me - it both reflects the attitudes and principles I use to manage and instructed me on how to improve 10x. Most management is black magic, strong arming, intimidation, passive aggressive, and reliant on traditional concepts passed from seniors to juniors. There is very little science involved. Jurgen changes that and demands proof for the wives tales that m [...]
