As with any significant industry shift, the transition to agile development is associated with a tremendous amount of fear, uncertainty and overall doubt as to its effectiveness. Because agile techniques force organizations to rethink traditional approaches to software development, many businesses continue to shy away from this approach, clinging to the safety of more conservative development techniques. This white paper is based on experience with hundreds of teams around the globe including many of the Fortune 100 and presents five commonly held myths associated with agile development. Gain insight into the realities of agile development and how it can benefit your organization. Explore the importance of planning, estimation, prioritization, and delivery discipline for comprehensive agility. Learn how agile practices can improve project visibility, productivity, value, quality, and reduce overall risk.
