Review quote

It s long past the time when executives who are looking for better performance from software development can expect an Agile transformation to solve their problems. Today s wise executive will know enough about the underlying principles of software systems to ask the right questions and make sure that their organization is solving the right problems. That s where this book comes in it contains just enough theory to inform executives about critical issues and just enough detail to clarify what s important and why.--Mary Poppendieck, Author of The Lean Mindset and the Lean Software Development series"show more
