Agile Project Management: Creating Innovative Products introduces the reader to agile project methodology by defining the role of the project manager and to a lessor degree the product manager in relation to the development team, the customer and the stakeholders. It spends significant time explaining the philosophy of agile projects using lean principles and the resulting changes in mindset and style that my be needed for a project manager. Counter arguments are presented for a number of myths that have developed as people have tried to refute agile as a legitimate project management process. The book explains the reasons for this approach to projects and enumerates eighteen suggested practices and associated reports.

The book is written in three sections—basic information (chapters 1-4), APM methodology phases (chapters 5-8), conclusion (chapters 9 and 10). The goal of the first part of the book is to explain the principles and concepts and to dispel myths about Agile Development and Agile Project Management (APM). The second part describers the phases, practices and sub-practices of APM. The last section discusses scalability and concludes the discussion.
