About the Book
Agile processes have revolutionized the software development industry. They're faster and more efficient than traditional software development processes. They enable developers to embrace requirement changes during the project, deliver working software in frequent iterations, and focus on the human factor in software development. Unfortunately, agile processes are either designed for small or mid-sized software development teams or rigid frameworks are provided for large-sized teams. Yet, also large teams have to deal with rapid changes - so rigidity is not helpful for them!
With Agile Software Development in the Large, Jutta Eckstein--a leading speaker and consultant in the agile community--shows how to scale agile processes to teams of 1 to 300. In fact, the same techniques are also relevant to teams of ten or more developers, especially within large organizations.
- the agile value system as used in large teams
- the impact of a switch to agile processes
- the agile coordination of several sub-teams
- the way project size and team size influence the underlying architecture
Stop getting frustrated with inflexible processes that cripple your large endeavors! Use this book to harness the efficiency and adaptability of agile software development.
