Why Read This Report

This report outlines the business impact of Forrester's solution for application development and delivery (AD&D) executives looking to implement Agile and Lean. It is designed to help AD&D execs discover Agile and Lean. How do you quantify the business impact of adopting or expanding the use of Agile? From technical debt to software econometrics, IT organizations struggle to articulate value. Business impact is the make-or-break justification criterion for virtually all IT activity today; newcomers to Agile need to justify adoption and business participation in terms that make business sense, and even firms with several successful Agile efforts under their belts have to justify the change and investment required to scale Agile to the next level.
