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
on 2010/8/20 5:10:00 (2247 reads)

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.

Articles : Jazoon Reports: Total Cost of Ownership and Return on Investment by Ken Schwaber
on 2010/6/7 3:24:37 (5060 reads)

At the recent Jazoon conference in Zurich, Ken Schwaber talked about the lack of technical practices in Scrum projects that lead to technical debt. However, the end of the talk made me thinks that this topic could have been chosen only to promote its Scrum.org certification courses.

on 2010/5/31 10:33:34 (1418 reads)

"Perhaps you’ve read a book, on Extreme Programming and have decided that is the right approach for your company. Or maybe you attended a Certified ScrumMaster training course and think Scrum sounds good. Or maybe you read a book on a different agile process, and it sounds perfect for your organization.

Book : Leading Lean Software Development – Results are not the Point
on 2010/3/9 0:04:56 (2577 reads)

What fascinates me the most in the Lean software development approach is the quality of the people that support it. The Poppendieck are not an exception to this rule. Their book achieves the seemingly contradictory goals of being very insightful but still easy and captivating to read. It might be however easier to have the right flow when you are a Lean adept ;o)
