The Dream Team Nightmare: Boost Team Productivity Using Agile Techniques

This first-ever interactive Agile Adventure is the gripping tale of an experienced team struggling with agile adoption. In this unique mashup of a business novel written in gamebook format, you’ll overcome common yet daunting challenges that come from using agile methods. As Jim, the agile coach, you’ll learn to apply a range of thinking tools and techniques to real-life problems faced by teams and organizations.  Find out what really works and what fails miserably from the consequences of your choices. Unlike in the real world, if at first you don’t succeed, you can make different choices until you get things right.

Management is read y to disband your new agile team and outsource your project. Can you save the Dream Team? The Dream Team started their journey 18 months ago. Since then, life has become a nightmare. Progress has grounded to a halt.  Morale is low. Quality has become taboo. You have five days to figure out how to get the team back on track. There will be conflict and maybe tears. One thing is for sure: there will be plenty of tough decisions to make.

Inspired by a classic gamebook series, this fun and interactive story has eight different endings designed to enrich and put your agile development knowledge and experience to the test. Packed with familiar scenarios an agile team faces every day, The Dream Team Nightmare offers you the chance to see what would happen if you could do things differently so you can change the way you do thinks for real with confidence.

Combining practical team-building exercises with effective facilitation and Systems Thinking, by the end of the book you’ll be ready to rescue projects in trouble, and get new projects off to a better start.

What reviewers say about The Dream Team Nightmare:

Engaging and fun to read, The Dream team Nightmare is jam-packed with fresh idea and techniques that are easy to adopt. It’s also a great springboard for follow-up reading on the bigger ideas such as systems thinking. I would heartily recommend it to everyone to share with their teams. –Victoria Morgan-Smith, Scrum Master

The Dream Team Nightmare is a breath of fresh air in comparison to other books on project theory and process out there. It provides you with a wealth of information to make better decisions on your project. –James Major, Project Manager, Network Rail

The Dream Team Nightmare is packed with tips and concrete techniques for how to do just about everything an agile coach does. Portia’s entertaining book is totally unlike any other agile book you’ve ever read. –Liz Sedley, author of Agile Coaching

The PMI Mid Missouri Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. The book club meetings are small group discussions for informal sharing and exchanging ideas. In order to participate you need to register for the event, preferably read the book before the meeting, and bring a copy of the book to the meeting.
