The ability to show and understand the alignment of a business sector bottom line to these methodologies will give companies some support in leaping the chasm to true Agile development.
This book addresses a much neglected gap between the technical and business aspects of software development. I recommend it for C-levels and project leads as well. It would also be a useful tool for the senior management that will be responsible for implementing such a solution.
