Do you have a plan when managing the day to day running of your family? Have you ever though you’d make a good project manager? If you have, then maybe you should think about a career (I hear it pays well!), otherwise the following book might be a good read if you’re in need of some guidance.

Agile Kids is a book about adapting the ideas of Agile Software Development to managing your family.

A practical way of getting daily tasks done and enhancing family communication. Agile Kids is the book every modern family needs, with both parents with full time jobs, and children who need their attention. 

An essential part of your child’s development is his ability to choose, be independent and control what happens in his life, and parents need to encourage that independence.

Agile Kids will show you how to empower your children without losing your parental authority, through a collection of practical actions. Each chapter can stand alone, and offers practical advice you can act on straight away. The methods described in the book are effective at teaching values and respect to others, and applies to public and home schooled children alike.

With any luck you’ll be able to do what most Software Projects can’t: Run on time, and on budget!

What methods do you use to keep your household running smoothly?
