Migrating to agile is unique for each company. This book will help you approach your migration in a way that provides the best possible chance for long-term success. Looking ahead In this chapter, we discussed what agile development really means and the value it provides. As this book continues, our goal will be to demonstrate what moving to agile looks like. We’ll do this via a case study that is representative of our years of helping teams become agile within their constraints. The case study, Acme Media, is introduced in chapter 2.

5 Adapting to change during development A more agile and iterative methodology provides an opportunity to reassess and redirect the project while it’s in motion. You perform development in iterations and offer demonstrations at the end of each. The customer has an opportunity to request changes based on the demonstrations, even though this may affect other features or potentially the project timeline. Team members learn to expect and embrace change. 6 Better understanding the project’s status Agile development is time-boxed.

In addition, advertisers were asking Acme to publish more television content on the websites to attract a younger crowd. Suddenly, web projects had urgency, and revenue was on the line. The heat was on the three product teams. The lack of reliable schedules and the teams’ frequent need to push out promise dates were motivating advertisers and readers to go to competitive websites.
