Description



Book Synopsis



Learning Agile is a comprehensive guide to the most popular agile methods, written in a light and engaging style that makes it easy for you to learn.

Agile has revolutionized the way teams approach software development, but with dozens of agile methodologies to choose from, the decision to "go agile" can be tricky. This practical book helps you sort it out, first by grounding you in agileâ s underlying principles, then by describing four specificâ and well-usedâ agile methods: Scrum, extreme programming (XP), Lean, and Kanban.

Each method focuses on a different area of development, but they all aim to change your teamâ s mindsetâ from individuals who simply follow a plan to a cohesive group that makes decisions together. Whether youâ re considering agile for the first time, or trying it again, youâ ll learn how to choose a method that best fits your team and your company.

  • Understand the purpose behind agileâ s core values and principles
  • Learn Scrumâ s emphasis on project management, self-organization, and collective commitment
  • Focus on software design and architecture with XP practices such as test-first and pair programming
  • Use Lean thinking to empower your team, eliminate waste, and deliver software fast
  • Learn how Kanbanâ s practices help you deliver great software by managing flow
  • Adopt agile practices and principles with an agile coach
