This new edition of Agile Project and Service Management shows how three of the world's top best-practice approaches to the development and deployment of IT support for business change can be integrated effectively to achieve maximum benefit. Based on the ITIL® service lifecycle, the well-established PRINCE2® project management approach, and the updated DSDM® Agile Project Framework, this publications shows how to combine all three to get the best out of their guidance.
The ability to develop, enhance and maintain IT systems to support an enterprise requires such huge investment that an ad hoc approach to providing them is no longer an option. The need for continual improvement requires a sufficiently defined and optimizable approach that can still embrace change. Companies must be able to run and control change projects in an agile way in order to retain focus on business value, good ROI, speed to market, and delivery of solutions, while still retaining agility in the support and maintenance of these solutions.
Deplaoying ITIL, PRINCE2 and the DSDM Agile Project framework in an integrated way provides the foundation for a well-run IT function that is business-focused, responsive to change, and cost-effective to run.
Key features include:
The first book that I have encountered that managed to get me to think about Agile practics, ITIL and Project Management as a coordinated whole.
Excellent explanations, even if you are not famiiliar with DSDM or Prince2.
