About the Book
In a digital world business must develop software, the business must grow and the software must grow. The project model doesn't reflect this world because projects end. In the digital world both software and business are continual. So management needs a new model.
This books sets out the Continuous model of software development based on continuous work streams. Continuous Digital is a logical continuation of agile software development which enables continuous delivery.
The #NoProjects movement has successfully set out the problems with project thinking over the last three years but has rightly been criticised for not elaborating on what should replace the project model. This volume sets out to address that problem. This book focused on describing an alternative to projects and for completeness contains a critique of the project model.
This book, Continuous Digital part 1, includes:
1. Omni present software
2. Software as an Asset
3. Higher purpose
4. Team-centric development
5. Work to be done
The four parts of Continuous Digital are available as a single publication or as four individual publications.
