Webinar – Case Study: Agile Productivity Levels at 5 Companies
Nov. 16th 2007, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm Eastern
How effective are SCRUM/Agile/XP methodologies? No discussion of current software development fails to mention these techniques; but do they work? How can we tell? In this webinar, Michael Mah will provide answers to these questions. Through his extensive consulting work, Michael has benchmarked the metrics and results of companies using Agile methods and the results are now in. In this webinar, you will track how 5 companies, all ostensibly “agile,” produced a range of quantitative results and what were the resultant implications on time to market, staffing and quality. Join us for a thought-provoking, interactive, engaging look at the how’s, the whys and the conclusions about Agile development.
