Adapting Configuration Management for Agile Teams
Wydawnictwo: John Wiley & Sons
Many professionals find the alignment of CM and Agile a challenge, however adaptive CM for Agile should not mean throwing out the CM principles of identification, control, audit and report. Nor does it mean ignoring Agile values. Instead it means providing the best integration through rigorous yet lean CM practices that provide Agile projects with the sticky surface needed to keep it on track and with the integrity the customer expects. The question is how do we do this?
Adapting Configuration Management for Agile Teams provides very tangible approaches on how Configuration Management with its practices and infrastructure can be adapted and managed in order to directly benefit agile teams.

When done properly, CM provides the lean and evolving structure needed for Agile projects to continue to run fast. CM for Agile can be a very powerful combination when done effectively.
