About this Publication

Have you considered adopting an Agile way of working in your team?

Business agility does not mean using the same processes and practices as your software and IT teams. In fact, the specific practices don’t matter. Agile is a way of thinking and making choices that can benefit marketing, HR, finance, all parts of the business.

This practical book will help you to…
• Decide where and how an Agile approach can help you serve the business better
• Customize and regularly improve an Agile way of working without your having to be a process expert
• Avoid the many pitfalls that lead to mediocre performance or bounce-backs
• Feel confident about your choices, even if they are different from what your tech colleagues use

The book’s foreword is by L. David Marquet, author of Turn the Ship Around!
