Though the basic principles of “Agile” software development were first published as a “manifesto” nearly a decade ago, and though some IT Professionals argue they have been “Agile” for much longer than that, it has only been during the past year or two that it has begun to reach “mainstream” status in the IT industry. At the same time, more IT organizations are beginning to realize that “Agile” is more than just a simple philosophy to “be flexible.”

Indeed, there are detailed, specific guidelines as well as case studies and references that can be used to dramatically increase the chances of success in an Agile Project. Having managed, guided, coached, and lectured about Agile Project Management since its early days, Ed Yourdon has collected these guidelines and experiences into an intense, detailed seminar that will help seminar delegates succeed with their own Agile Projects.
