While the book Agile Software Requirements: Lean requirements Practices for Teams, Programs and The Enterprise, is still going though final production edits and artwork revisions at Addison-Wesley, it is now available for pre-order on Amazon. It should be available for shipment in the next 60 days.
Here’s a few praise quotes from the inside pages.
“Dean captures the essence of Agile in entirety, all the way from the discrete user story in the “trenches” to complex software portfolios at the enterprise level. The narrative balances software engineering theory with pragmatic implementation aspects in an easy to understand manner. It is a book that demands to be read in a single sitting.” —Israel Gat. Cutter consortium.
“This book presents practical and proven agile approaches for managing software requirements for a team, collaborating teams of teams, and all across the enterprise. However, this is not ‘only’ a great book on agile requirements engineering; rather Leffingwell describes the bigger picture of how the enterprise can achieve the benefits of business agility by implementing lean product development flow. His “Big Picture” of agile requirements is an excellent reference for any organization pursuing an intrinsically lean software development operational mode. Best of all, we’ve applied many of these principles and practices at Nokia, (and even helped create some of them), and therefore we know they work. ” —Juha-Markus Aalto, Agile Change Program Manager, Nokia Corporation.
