FBI gets the evidence on agile

One of the latest buzz-words in IT is agile software development. Who could be against it? Ah, but does your organization understand it?

The fact is it takes expertise. As this article points out, knowledgeable people were able to use agile methods and in a little over a year breathed life into a project that died twice over eight years.  
The story notes that the U.S. Government Accountability Office just issued a report on Washington’s use of agile showing that while “it’s not perfect, and many people in government and in the contractor community still struggle with it, but it’s succeeding where it counts–enabling the rollout of large-scale IT projects that are on time, on budget and actually do what stakeholders want them to do.”

Read this and see if it unlocks agile’s secrets for your organization.
