What We’re Reading This Week: Everyone Agile!
If software is eating the world, Agile has become the go-to process for designing, building, testing and deploying it. Everyone from Facebook to Google and IBM use Agile to move business forward, faster. But despite the thousands of companies that have implemented Agile methods, there’s still quite a bit of confusion as to what it is, why it works, and how to implement it successfully.
