Book Description

Why do some companies excel with agile and others see virtually no improvement? The difference is culture and an understanding that agile is a framework for deep cultural change instead of a process or set of practices to increase efficiency. Why Agile Works: The Values Behind the Results focuses on why and how agile works and where agile should take organizations in terms of values.

  • Offers a practical context for understanding and applying Agile techniques, moving from theory into actual practice
  • Explains when to use Agile and how to avoid common pitfalls
  • Written by experts who know how to apply the principles in real-world situations
About the Authors
