Effective Software Delivery

Agility Without the Dogma

About the Book

Since Agile methods hit the "big time", we've been inundated with propaganda espousing a "my brand can beat up your brand" battle of choosing which approach you should use. While each approach has plenty of positives, the notion that any one approach would fit all organizations and people is absurd at best!

Effective Software Delivery distills more than 25 years of industry experience in a wide variety of domains and technologies into simple, actionable approaches and techniques. These will let you to determine more objectively what will work in your unique circumstance.

While the book can't guarantee success, it can guarantee that what's in the book has been used "in real life" and has worked!
