Are you struggling to implement Agile methodologies or
culture within your company? Are people demanding
detailed plans and follow-ups? Is there a chasm between
business operations and the IT department?
These questions can be continuously raised - but luckily this
book is here to help! The original concept came about after
repeatedly getting questions from businesses about what Agile is
and what value it brings. Erik Hultgren and Dick Lyhammar tried
to explain such benefits as shorter feedback loops, delivering
important functionality first, happier development teams, better
deliveries and radically reducing the risk of a huge development
effort - but were still lacking some material to show. Hence the
idea of this book was born! Hopefully it will help you explain the
Agile concept to anyone at your company.
The book also covers the topics of Agile HR, Lean and Agile,
Agile Leadership, Agile outside IT and how to handle the transition
from traditional project management into an Agile setup.
Erik Hultgren and Dick Lyhammar together have over 15 years
of management experience within software development and Agile
transformation. Christer Dahlström has over 10 years’ experience
as an Agile Coach with a special interest in visualization.
