Book : The Jazz Process by Adrian Cho
on 2010/12/9 6:06:48 (3210 reads)
Book

I must admit that I was initially a little bit skeptical on a book about agility coming out from IBM. I was wrong. Although you will find a little bit of “bigblueness” in the content, I really enjoy reading this book that propose a deep and interesting perspective on the team dimension of software development with multiple references to the jazz and sports domains.

Based on her own experience of “recovering command-and-control project manager”, she write about all the circumstances where you can coach people, explaining both what you should and shouldn’t do.

Articles : Continuous Integration: An Agile Necessity
on 2010/10/25 3:01:59 (4797 reads)
Articles

Agile development is the future of modern software engineering.  Companies that have implemented it successfully have seen great improvements in their software—both in cost, stability, and in the utility of the software itself.  However, some companies have struggled, finding it difficult to adapt their processes and culture to work in an Agile environment.  One of the areas that best highlights the cultural shifts required to become an Agile organization is Continuous Integration (CI).

Book

Now that Agile has established itself as the dominant new trend in software development, the number of books that deal with this topic is increasing every day.

Quotes : The Benefit of Self-Organizing Scrum Teams

Quotes

However, the benefit of allowing a team to self-organize isn't that  the team finds some optimal organization for their work that a manager may have missed. Rather, it is that by allowing the team to self-organize, they are encouraged to fully own the problem.
