SOFTWARE IN 30 DAYS
A Radical Approach to Fast, Valuable, and Low-Risk Software Development
Software development doesn't have to be slow and expensive anymore. The Agile and Scrum software development method allows creation of the game-changing software you need to grow your businessin 30 days or less. Projects that use it are three times more successful than those that don't, and the productivity gain versus traditional "waterfall" methods has been over 100 percent on many projects.
For the business manager, the entrepreneur, or IT manager, Software in 30 Days explains how this unorthodox process works, how to get started, and how to succeed. Learn powerful concepts such as the "art of the possible," "bottom-up intelligence," and why it's good to fail early. With simple but profound shifts in thinking, you will be able to control risk, manage projects, and deliver your best work possible, faster and cheaper than ever before.
