New York, NY (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
Engineering methodologies have been around for a long time, and for the most part, have been unpopular, and unsuccessful amongst engineers. In “Being Agile,” Apress Media’s new release, veteran Agile guru, Mario Moreira, aims to revolutionize the corporate world into a pro-Agile environment. Moreira points out that only a minority of companies understand and practice Agile, and hopes to convert as many Fragile users (half-baked Agile users) as possible by offering pointers, principles, and practices.
This book is not only for Agile professionals, but is also for project managers, and middle, senior, and executive management in software engineering and development divisions. Many companies that pose as using Agile values, identified as “ScrumButs,” are in need of a new business platform. In this book, business leaders will learn how to evaluate team candidates for traits, skills, behavior, and attitudes diagnostic of an Agile mindset, set up Agile planning tools and framework, and map stakeholder engagement.
