Promote agile software development with balanced team methodology

Despite many teams today following an agile approach to software development, too many still fail to realize their full potential. These teams may perfectly implement their chosen agile methodology, but neglecting to consider the human side of their strategies undermines the entire process.

Codifying the practices that enable team cooperation, regardless of the chosen methodology, can help close the gap between the agility goals on paper and the result in practice. One of the most promising of these practices is the balanced team.

Take a look at this white paper to learn the core values supporting a balanced team approach, as well as the benefits these values can bring to your team.
