Becoming Agile (In An Imperfect World)


File Size: 7.18 Mb

Description
In 2005 I began teaching an Agile Project Management course at Bellevue Community College. Although my students noted I was a bit “wordy,” they appreciated the real-world case study I used for the course, based on my own agile experiences. I told the students I had created the course because most available agile training was based on perfect world explanations of agile practices and the creation of a pure agile environment. The case study used in the course showed what it was like to start transitioning to agile versus what it looked like after a team had been using agile for many years.

Positive student feedback made me wonder if a book on transitioning to agile would be of value to the software community. I began searching through the shelves of Barnes & Noble and through the inventory available on Amazon.com. I was surprised to see that very few books addressed agile migration, and I could not find any books that demonstrated what the process looked like from day one through the completion of a pilot project. Maybe it was time to find out if I had any writing skills!
