Proven Patterns and Techniques for Succeeding with Agile in Your Organization

Agile methodologies promise to help you create software that delivers far more business value-and do it faster, at lower cost, and with less pain. However, many organizations struggle with implementing agile methodologies and gaining their full benefits. In this book, Amr Elssamadisy identifies the powerful lessons that have been learned about successfully moving to agile and distills them into 30 proven "agile adoption patterns."

Elssamadisy walks you through defining your optimal agile adoption strategy with case studies and hands-on exercises. He systematically examines the most common obstacles and challenges to agile implementation, identifying proven solutions. You'll learn where to start, how to choose the best agile practices for your business and technical environment, and how to adopt agility incrementally, building on steadily growing success.

Next, he presents the definitive agile adoption pattern reference: all the information you need to implement the strategy you've defined. Utilizing the classic pattern format, he explains each agile solution in its proper context, revealing why it works-and how to make the most of it. The pattern reference prepares you to


Understand the core drivers, principles, and values associated with agile success
Tightly focus development on delivering business value-and recognize the "smells" of a project headed off track
Use patterns for gaining rapid, effective feedback practices: iteration, kickoff and standup meetings, demos, retrospectives, and much more
Use patterns for team development: co-location, self-organization, cross-functional roles, and how to bring the customer aboard
Use patterns for technical tasks and processes: testing, refactoring, continuous integration, simple design, collective code ownership, and pair programming
Use patterns for coaching: how to engage the community and promote learning
Integrate "clusters" of agile practices that work exceptionally well together

Agile Adoption Patterns will help you whether you're planning your first agile project, trying to improve your next project, or evangelizing agility throughout your organization. Elssamadisy's patterns will work with any agile methodology, from XP and Scrum to Crystal Clear and Lean. His practical insights will make you more effective in any agile project role: as leader, developer, architect, or customer.
