Drawing on principles from the "agile" software movement, this book offers a different way to think about hiring. This book will provide principles and techniques that will help you to hire the best software professionals.

Beautiful excerpt. Informative, detailed and concise, yet accessible. I can't wait for the book to come out; this would be a valuable addition not only to HR managers but also to Project Managers that need to assemble temporary ad-hoc teams for very specific purposes, and in the process must assign staff and responsibilities to match processes and deliverables.

Hi Dan,
Indeed the book is useful to these folks, but the primary audience are the people who should be doing the hiring: lead developers, testers, and hiring managers. I am firmly committed to the notion that people skilled in the craft are able do a great job of hiring within that craft. HR has an important role, management has an important role, but the people who make excellent hiring happen are the domain experts.

I hope you have gotten a copy of the book and are enjoying it!

Best regards,
Sean Landis
