Agile Excellence for Product Managers: A Guide to Creating Winning Products with Agile Development Teams

Corporations are continually suffering from advanced improvement initiatives and are in look for a couple of, undemanding, and straightforward to benefit how you can support care for their difficulties. as a result, progressively more software program businesses are speedily turning to Agile improvement to deal with quickly altering markets, unknown or altering product standards, without boundary lines pageant, and to resolve complicated difficulties.

Winning with Software: An Executive Strategy


The message here's that if you want to improve reliable software program, rather of any major measurement, you would like a strong method and a staff of disciplined programmers/engineers. The operative phrases listed below are powerful and disciplined. those phrases, really the self-discipline one, resonate rather good with us, simply because one of many major factors of an issue venture is the shortcoming of self-discipline to stick with an outlined strategy. The additional message is that "quality counts" - much more so than agenda. this can be really correct to any company that makes use of software.

When the undertaking begins to "go off the track", the undertaking staff may return to what they're pleased with which frequently is the "lazy" strategy. just like a soccer workforce - whilst issues move pear formed and they're at the again foot, undesirable behavior sneak in . .. .. tackles get overlooked, contributors do not get into place in defence, the ball will get dropped, the go is going off target. .. .. self-discipline is going out the window!

His own software program technique (PSP) and staff software program technique (TSP) are usually not incompatible with the extraordinary programming (XP) or agile software program improvement move, even though the XP crowd may perhaps disagree. i don't believe Humphrey might disagree even if he's coming from the software program Engineering Institute (SEI) attitude and was once an important participant within the SEI strength adulthood version (CMM) improvement that's usually held up because the antithesis of XP.

Having acknowledged all that and noting that the focal point is on software program improvement, the messages are both appropriate despite what's being built. total, it's a strong learn with a few first-class recommendation and useful examples. So do not be dispose of by means of the name and the actual fact it may be a section dry in areas, insert for software program, your specific know-how (missile, bridge, community, satellite tv for pc, communications process, and so forth) and it'll nonetheless make feel and supply you with a few priceless insights.


It extra proven our current method instead of taught us whatever new. yet, it did enlighten us on a few concepts we will use to teach the price of taking a powerful and disciplined method of undertaking administration. loads so, we're getting one other replica of the booklet and giving it to the executive of the undertaking portfolio in a single of our buyer enterprises. This confirms for us that it is a e-book for executives.

Ontological Engineering: Principles, Methods, Tools and Languages Fig. 5. 8 Conclusions At the beginning of the 1990s ontology development was similar to an art: ontology developers did not have clear guidelines on how to build ontologies but only some design criteria to be followed. Work on principles, methods and methodologies, together with supporting technology, turned ontology development into engineering. This migration process was mainly due to the definition of the ontology development process and the ontology life cycle, which described the steps to be performed in order to build ontologies and the interdependencies among all those steps.

Moreover, there are no empirical results about the possibility of exchanging ontologies between different tools and about the amount of knowledge that is lost in the translation processes. Some effort in this regard has been carried out in the EON 2004 workshop. 7 Related to the cooperative and collaborative construction of ontologies, Protégé incorporates some synchronization functionalities. In general, more features are required in existing tools to ensure a successful collaborative building of ontologies.
