Agile: An Executive Guide Real Results from IT Budgets

Heftet / 2011 / Engelsk
The true power of Agile methodologies is not technology; it is business value generation. Use Agile methodologies to turn your IT solution challenges into high business-value returns All too often, IT solutions are plagued by budget overruns, missed deadlines, low-quality outputs and dissatisfied users. Agile methodologies are proven, common-sense methods for substantially increasing the relevance, flexibility and bottom-line business value of your software solutions. Quantify and measure the benefits that Agile methodologies can deliver to your organisation. Agile methodologies, such as Scrum, DSDM, FDD, Lean, XP and Kanban, are proven approaches for applying the finite resources of an organisation to deliver high business-value software solutions on time and within allocated budgets. These methodologies protect organisations from wasting their IT budgets by replacing large upfront financial commitments with incremental investment based on the ongoing business value of delivered software. They encourage collaboration with key stakeholders, empower staff to regularly deliver bottom-line value, and ensure that IT solutions are responsive to ongoing organisational and market changes. Agile: An Executive Guide describes Agile methodologies in clear business language specifically written for business professionals. It will help you make realistic business-driven decisions on whether Agile methodologies are appropriate for your organisation; whether you are looking to consolidate your IT overheads, to provide better software solutions to your clients, or to have more control over your IT expenditures. This guide provides practical, proven ways to introduce, incorporate and leverage Agile methodologies to maximise your business returns.
