What reviewers say…
Vera Peeters, software developer and co-creator of The XP Game, says:
“Portia is trying to write down stuff from her own excperience since a long time. Now she finally found her format. It’s a great idea to make it an adventure! It is different, it is playful, it makes it fun to read and read again and to study. As always, Portia will inspire you and will challenge you to think about what you are doing.”
Steve Holyer, Agile Coach, says:
“The only way to learn Agile coaching is by doing. ‘The Dream Team Nightmare’ lets you experience a week as Agile coach for the Dream Team in a “choose-your-own- adventure” style book. It’s totally fun and surprisingly like real life.”
Staffan Noteberg, author of “Pomodoro Technique Illustrated”, says:
“The Game of life is to try, learn and adapt through small and frequent experiments. Portia’s book gives you the unique opportunity to understand Agile in an experimen- tal way. The palette of problems and creative solutions, presented in this book, will surprise experienced Agile practitioners as well as new enthusiasts.”
Olaf Lewitz, Agile Coach, says:
“‘The Dream Team Nightmare’ is the most compelling and intriguing ‘business novel’ that I have read so far. The message is so well wrought into the narrative flow that you barely notice you are learning a lot. The style of making assumptions, validating them to keep track of what you learn and plan to do is that of an effective change artist. To explicitly identify options, deferring decisions to keep options open, not only makes reading this gamebook very exciting, it is also part of the method you see applied. I highly recommend this book to agile readers of all experi- ence levels. You will learn. Let Agile Adventures entertain you!”
