Scrum

Usually I speak about Leadership and not Management. But if I do end up commenting on management, I usually say only two words: "use scrum".

And in case you're not familiar with Scrum, there are currently three key thought leaders whose names you need to know: Jeff Sutherland, Ken Schwaber and Mike Cohn. Sutherland and Schwaber are generally considered to be the inventors of Scrum. Cohn has arisen as their equally capable champion of Scrum. Having said all that, here are some Scrum resources I recommend.
