Manage It! and Lean Software Development...

Hi Johanna,

What you said here makes sense.

While studying I was trying to place the Prince2 in the
context of another methodology Lean Software Development...
I started Poppendieck's book on this subject, but didn't
manage to finish it...because of the 'obligatory' Prince2

I have the impression that Manage It falls more in the
category of Lean Software Development, does it?

Kind regards,

Yes, Manage It! is closer to Lean Software Development than it is to Prince2 or the PMI. But I do encourage you to read the Poppendieck's book, because even if you can't go lean, learning how to recognize work that adds no value is useful as a project manager.

(Of course, you should read Manage It! too
