Editorial Reviews

From the Author

In 2008, I was hired as the product manager at a new startup in Silicon Valley. The CEO and I decided it would be a good idea to try this thing called "Agile." Like everyone else, we wanted our product out the door faster, cheaper, and better, and Agile seemed like our best bet. It took us six months and quite a bit of struggle and confusion to get our system working well, and two more months to get the first version of the product out the door. But eventually, we looked back and realized we'd not only created a product that delighted our customers, but also a development methodology that delighted our team.
Agility took us from a group that argued and struggled to a team that collaborated and produced. It didn't eliminate our troubles, of course, but it made such a difference in our output and in our daily lives that I became a believer. I resolved to write a book that would help people like me, with more focus on the business than the technology, understand Agile and apply the principles in their--your--organization. 
It's taken well over three years to get this book into print, and it's been a long and complex journey. I stopped and started the project several times, and the project shifted yet again in 2010 when I joined Rally Software and found myself surrounded by an incredible group of people who had insights and stories to share from their own circuitous journeys. I knew the book would be that much stronger if I included their voices and stories as well. I have not been disappointed. 
Our goal with this book is to share our experience and knowledge in a language that can be easily grasped and put to use whether or not you have Agile--or even technology--experience.
An important part of Agile is working collaboratively, incrementally, and iteratively. We've done all three. This book has been a team effort and has been through several rounds of market feedback. This is our effort of practicing what we preach. 
From everyone at Rally, we sincerely hope you enjoy.
