Review:

"Anyone who has worked on a data warehousing project knows that it can be a monumental undertaking. Agile Data Warehouse (sic) Project Management...offers up an approach that can minimize challenges and improve the chance of successful delivery." --Data and Technology Today blog, April 2013

"Hughes first began working with agile data warehousing in 1996 and received skeptical reactions up until at least six years ago. Having stuck with this approach throughout, he is now receiving a more and more favorable reception and here uses his expertise to deliver a thorough implementation guide." --Reference and Research Book News, December 2012
