IDC PlanScape: Building Agile Success Through IT Practices
This IDC study describes the practices that CIOs should adopt with their business partners to successfully overhaul their development approaches. An Agile methodology describes the culture of transparency and trust within which Agile practices can drastically reduce the odds of coming up short on customer satisfaction. According to Cora Carmody, adjunct research advisor, IDC's IT Executive Advisory Group, "There was a time when the waterfall approach to project delivery was considered the best, most disciplined approach to project delivery. It wasn't always successful in effectively meeting the customer's needs, and sometimes success depended on the project team's ability to consistently work over 20 hours at a time. The practices of an Agile methodology go a long way to remedy most of the shortcomings of the waterfall approach."
