Product Description

Product Description

The rapid convergence of technological and knowledge growth is resulting in disruptive change unlike any in human history. So why go back 2,500 years for a business leadership and project management model?

According to today’s experts, Nehemiah’s building the 4.5-mile wall around Jerusalem in 445 BC should have taken years with a huge labor force. But he accomplished it with 150 leaders and an enormous volunteer team in 52 days. His book is a roadmap on how to accomplish seemingly impossible goals using a Business Agile framework.

The Nehemiah Effect combines new mindsets, methodologies, and technologies with proven, ancient wisdom to deliver surprising results for today’s business leaders and project managers.

HASH(0xa0955684) out of 5 stars The ultimate Agile Approach to Managiing Projects May 19 2014
By Dennis L. Bolles - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ted and Andrew’s book is all about their "Agile Manifesto,” which they call the Unified Vision Framework (UVF), a methodology that provides a clear and effective response to those who doubt that agile is a legitimate method for managing projects efficiently. I was not convinced that the Agile approach could be applied to managing projects, other than short-term IT projects, that is until I saw a presentation of their UVF methodology they gave in a PMI Chapter meeting After that presentation I decided to read their book – it made me a convert and true believer in their UVF methodology.
UVF is a 4D model that, in the authors’ words, “provides a business leadership framework that strengthens and accelerates any project management methodology that is used to manage projects.” Remaining competitive in today’s global market requires organizations to change how they deliver projects quicker with fewer resources if they want to stay in business.
This book provides an excellent set of guidelines for effectively implementing a Business Agile leadership approach within any organization of any size to manage projects of all types and sizes.
Regardless of whether you accept the biblical accounting of the rebuilding of the wall around Jerusalem in 52 days as factual or not, the authors provide the readers a clear set of guidelines for implementing their UVF methodology, which in of itself is a worthy enough purpose to purchase and read this book.

HASH(0xa09494c8) out of 5 stars A sound management methodology that keeps pace with escalated change May 22 2014
By Mr Mark D Spaak - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is no question the rate of change in industry is rapidly evolving and pushing the limits of what current management practices can handle. The book details a UVF framework by which managers can successfully guide their teams through processes that are highly effective and produce more consistent results. The book touches on multiple points of managment structure that are critical to success. This book will enlighten even the most seasoned managers not only in sound project management practices but leadership in general. An quick enjoyable read.

HASH(0xa0965714) out of 5 stars Amazing and Brilliant Insights into the Agile Wisdom 2500 Years Before the Agile Manifesto was Published! May 21 2014
By Shotava - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ted Kallman shows us in brilliant words and ideas how Agile concepts were used 2500 hundred years prior to the Agile Manifesto published in 2001. He reminds us how Nehemiah increased his success and decreased wasted time and resources through brilliant management and personal relationships. He asks us, "Does your personal Vision, Mission and Purpose align with your current: Project? Product? Organization?" Then tells us how to implement these ingredients into a recipe for true success!
