Overview

Agile approaches are business practices with a proven track record for helping organisations achieve greater efficiency, higher quality outputs and increased customer satisfaction. They enable organisations to avoid the trappings of extensive up-front planning and up-front budget commitments by encouraging staff to regularly produce high quality business outputs; and by basing ongoing financial and resource commitments on the delivered outcomes. This focus on responsive planning based on tangible outputs is why Agile approaches have been successfully used in selected industries for over two decades, including the Information Technology (IT) industry. Agile Productivity Unleashed: Proven approaches for achieving real productivity gains in any organization introduces every industry sector to the Agile approaches that have dramatically improved the IT, product development and manufacturing sectors over the past two decades. Agile Productivity Unleashed clearly explains how the key principles of Agile approaches can be used to significantly increase productivity, quality and customer satisfaction in any organization. Written in non-technical language specifically for business professionals, this book is an essential tool for anyone whose job it is to deliver high quality results on time and on budget. Jamie Lynn Cooke has 19 years of experience as a senior business analyst and solutions consultant, and has worked with more than 120 public and private sector organizations in Australia and North America. She has been working hands on with Agile methods since 2003.
