Why Read This Report

This report outlines the assessment framework of Forrester's solution for application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals working on Agile and Lean transformation. This report is designed to help you during the discovery phase of Agile and Lean transformation. Digital upstarts are upending markets and displacing market leaders, and firms that don't adapt will fall prey. Application development professionals must apply Lean principles to the software development process, whether that means piloting Agile development or meshing it with Lean IT processes. Benchmarking where you are today exposes areas for improvement, which you can use to define your path forward. This research outlines the elements of a Lean and Agile assessment that will form the basis for your improvement program.
