5.0 étoiles sur 5 Like Business Service Management to IT Folks 7 décembre 2009
Par Israel Gat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The Business Value of Agile Software Methods will affect very many conversations in which a champion socializes Agile with his/her executives. It is an excellent fit for the champion promoting Agile for the following reasons:

1. It is about the business, not about the fine points of software methods. Like Business Service Management to IT folks, this book gives the heart of the matter to the software development executive.
2. The book captures, analyzes and synthesizes the results of hundreds of systemic research studies.
3. It provides data on the various Agile methods without favoring one over another. Furthermore, the authors are quite explicit in stating that it not the method itself but the fit of a method to a company/culture/environment that counts.
4. It places equal weight on costs and benefits of Agile, thereby giving the reader a good grasp on trade-offs. This grasp can be enhanced through free downloads of cost and benefit spreadsheets from the corresponding Download Resource Center.
5. A very impressive aspect of this new book is the broad spectrum of the metrics it provides. Just about any business metric your CIO/CFO/CXO might use as the basis for his/her decision-making process, including Real Options Analysis (ROA), is provided. Moreover, the book encourages the use of multiple metrics, clearly indicating the pro and cons of individual metrics. For example: "The business value of Agile methods may be as much as 90% higher than NPV using ROA under extreme market conditions, including high inflation, risk change, and amount of time."

An often used Agile quip is "Don't take you boss to lunch; take him/her to the daily stand-up meeting." I would suggest you give The Business Value of Agile Software Methods to your boss at the end of his/her first stand-up meeting. This recommendation is nicely seconded by the following excerpt from colleague Sanjiv Augustine's review of the book:

... those looking to build a bullet proof case for agile methods based on solid data and comprehensive research and analysis will find this an invaluable work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The much needed quantification 25 mars 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is an important book that has arrived at an important time. It does a great job, in a very concise way, of presenting the various aspects of Agile Software Development and its various incarnations. Most importantly, it also provides a comprehensive quantification of the benefits, from a business perspective, that provide the necessary economic backup that has long been missing for decision makers who are looking to adopt these methods. I enjoyed the fact that the book is right to the point, not unnecessarily long-winded, and easy to read. This is another aspect that is important as the decision makers who are on the fence with regard to the business value of software are frequently impatient about getting the data behind this. This book provides that information quickly.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Comprehensive and Rigorous Reference to Agile 11 octobre 2009
Par Sanjiv Augustine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
If you've longed for a comprehensive and rigorous reference that supports agile methods -- here it is, at last! This is a work that stands out from the crop because if its comprehensive treatment of agile: management, engineering, documentation, with special references to the military and government domains. There's also a comparative study of agile methods along with surveys, metrics, and other financial analysis that will impress your inner actuary. Drs. Rico, Sayani and Sone bring their considerable academic prowess to bear on some of the most persistent objections to agile. In particular, those looking to build a bullet proof case for agile methods based on solid data and comprehensive research and analysis will find this an invaluable work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lots of hard numbers about the value of agile software development methods, vital data for the software development manager 30 décembre 2009
Par Charles Ashbacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Nearly every environment where software will be used is in a state of rapid and significant change. The product that is needed when the software is delivered many times bears only a small resemblance to the original conception of the need. Therefore, it is a no-brainer that a rigid development process with almost no flexibility rarely works. The results have been dismal; the most reliable statistics are that 70% of software development projects are by some metric a failure. In response, various methods collectively called "agile" have been adopted and they generally have proven to be much more effective. To be considered agile, the software development method must allow a great deal of flexibility into the process and some of the most widely used methods are examined here.
What makes this book distinct from so many others is the presence of many numbers that will allow the reader to not only understand the benefits of using agile development, but also to compare and contrast the four agile methods that are most widely used. Those methods are pair programming, test-driven development, extreme programming and Scrum. The comparisons are extensive, for example in chapter 18 the data describes the total life cycle costs of all four agile methods and what are termed the traditional methods.
With so much hard data so skewed in favor of agile development, it would be very difficult for a traditionalist to argue against adopting one of the agile development methods. The only arguments against that could be made is that either the data is wrong or that adopting an agile method is extremely difficult. Given the large number of references given here, the first criticism is impossible, so that only leaves the second. In terms of this book, that could be done, as there is little mention about how an organization would perform a conversion to an agile method. That is a minor criticism but is really the only one I could think of.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Agile Project Management Optimizes Time and Performance 7 mars 2010
Par Omowale T. Elson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
We were knocking our heads trying to find the right language to explain the value our leadership and organization development services bring to our business clients, but more, how to be more efficient in our design and delivery. Then came along Drs. David Rico, Hansan Sayani and Saya Sone's explosive book entitled "Business Value of Agile Software Methods: Using Cost of Quality" with a specific emphasis on "Agile Methods Business Value Metrics" that made complete sense. This approach not only speaks from hard data-rich examples, but also presents new thinking about how to measure and assess the level of teamwork, scalable development and flexibility that accompanies the transformation process in any culture change effort. This is really a breath of fresh air in project development and management. The agile method responds to organizational systems that have to maximize learning, while viewing the measurement process as essential to optimizing knowledge about their customers' preferences and the value they always expect. This work shows how to value time and by so doing, how to reduce waste and optimize return on investment.
