Agile Project Management: Creating Innovative Products (2nd Edition) and in this book, Jim not only refers to a few good quotes by other authors but also has made many impactful statements. The book provides views on Agile Leadership, Team Management and Agile Project Management.
A few good quotes that I liked from the initial few chapters include
* Traditional managers view the plan as the goal, whereas agile leaders view customer value as the goal
Commanders know the objective;
leaders grasp the direction.
* Leadership is what crosses the frontier between what we did yesterday and what we’ll do tomorrow. We’ll argue…that the real mark of a leader is conﬁdence with uncertainty—the ability to admit to it and deal with it.” - Phillip Hodgson and Randall White
* Agile project leaders help their team balance at the edge of chaos—some structure, but not too much; adequate documentation, but not too much; some up-front architecture work, but not too much. Finding these balance points is the “art” of agile leadership
