Managing Agile Projects

La description

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.
