The international information security experts IT Governance have updated their catalogue with a new edition of a key title: Agile: An Executive Guide, Second edition, by Jamie Lynn Cooke.
Agile methodologies such as Scrum, DSDM, FDD, Lean, XP and Kanban are proven approaches for applying organisations’ resources to deliver software solutions to businesses on time and within allocated budgets.
The second edition of Agile: An Executive Guide provides practical ways to introduce, incorporate and use Agile methods to maximise your business returns.
Agile: An Executive Guide is full of useful advice, including detailed guidelines to help you choose the right kick-off point for Agile within your organisation, avoid common traps, monitor and measure your investment, and broaden the use of Agile methods into other areas of your organisation. It includes step-by-step guidelines, interactive tools and targeted questionnaires to help you and your staff successfully implement these methods.
This book describes Agile methods in clear business language specifically written for professionals. It will help you make realistic business-driven decisions on whether Agile methods are appropriate for your organisation, whether you are looking to reduce your IT overheads, provide better software solutions to your clients or have more control over your IT expenditure.
“Not only does the book bring forward the business benefits of agile development, it does so in the short, business-oriented language most likely to connect with senior management.”
– Ir. H.L. (Maarten) Souw RE, Enterprise Risk and QA Manager, UWV
