Competitive job market is becoming saturated with candidates who do not fully understand how modern recruitment for agile roles works - at least in Australia.

The author has done an excellent effort in breaking down topics to manageable chunks. Furthermore, the author writes with the Australian Agile Market in mind and states it beforehand. However, from my experience, conceptually the ideas arising out of the Agile Delivery space and ground-level manner in which Dmitri tackles the subject can be applied globally, at least to US corporations. Kudos on a book well thought out and written. I look forward to listening to your podcasts.
