Combine the speed and flexibility of agile methods with enterprise-class scalability!Hands-on coverage of the entire project lifecycle Modeling, feature lists, planning, design, and software constructionAdapt Feature-Driven Development to your own organization and projects The first practical, start-to-finish guide to implementing Feature-Driven Development!
Feature-Driven Development (FDD), created by Peter Coad and Jeff De Luca, combines the key advantages of agile methodologies with model-driven techniques that scale to the largest teams and projects. This book demonstrates FDD at work in real-world projects and provides project leaders with all the information they need to successfully apply it in their own organizations.
Stephen R. Palmer and John M. Felsing show how applying FDD can help solve problems that neither traditional nor agile methodologies can address. They help you identify the projects that are best suited for FDD, and then walk you step by step through the entire FDD development process.
