Synopsis

The popularity of agile development methodologies continues to increase, as



developers and technical managers have seen the benefits of incorporating



flexibility in development projects. However, agility advocates still struggle to



gain business management support for their initiatives. The reluctance of



business management to truly embrace agility stems from a disconnect between



the assumptions and techniques of traditional management and those of the



new agile development methodologies. The purpose of this book is to provide



management a framework with supporting evidence that directly addresses this



need. While conventional wisdom states that agile methods are not scaleable,



the author shares proof that it can be applied to large-scale development



projects. Furthermore, he aligns the adoption of agile methods to cutting-edge



business management practices. The end result is a practical book that will help



organizations overcome their institutional reluctance and reap the significant



benefit of agile methods.
