A must read. More than once.,
This review is from: Changing Software Development: Learning to Become Agile (Paperback)
Agile development is becoming mainstream. However, succeeding with it is more difficult than what it seems. Just picking an agile methodology (e.g., XP, Scrum, DSDM, etc.) and implementing it in an "out of the book" fashion is not enough--as many have already found by trying this approach only to see their projects improve only marginally, or, in many cases, fail.
This book goes beyond the process mechanics and explains what is truly important for creating successful Agile companies and teams independently of the methodology used--i.e., creating a "learning organization", where continuous change and improvement are the norm.
If you are trying to improve the way your company or team works, then you'll find the practical advice inside this book really invaluable.
