In this new edition of her award-winning book, Jamie Lynn Cooke explains the principles of Agile, shows why it works, and demonstrates how to use Agile to significantly increase productivity, quality, and customer satisfaction in any industry.
It shows how Agile approaches can give you:
- A faster, more flexible and highly responsive framework, allowing your organisation to leverage internal and external changes more quickly.
