Join the Lean IT Summit, March 14-15 in Paris, France, to discover how Lean can be an inspiring model for IT Leaders - I will cover the IT Summit for InfoQ.
I have collected research, studies and reports that provide insight into the business benefits of agile in a new agile and lean tool: Business Benefits of Agile.
Organizations want to have insight in the values that Agile can bring to them. They want to know if and how Agile can help to satisfy customer needs more quickly, and what they can do to increase productivity and reduce development and operations costs. It is important to know the value that Agile can deliver and to be able to measure it. At the event Impact and Value of Agile, organized by the Agile Consortium, I presented the State of Affairs in Agile Value creation.
The book Economics of Software Quality provides solutions to quantify Software Quality and manage software development and maintenance. It contains data usable to build a business case to improve quality, and decide upon improvements in your organization.
I’m an Editor for Agile on InfoQ, covering news on topics like Agile Adoption, Culture, Lean, Agile in the Enterprise, Governance, Measurements, Coaching, Collaboration, Teamwork, Professionalism, Feedback, Continuous Improvement and Lean Startup. And I will also be doing interviews, book reviews, articles, and coverage of conferences.

I started blogging in july 2010, and after less then 16 months I've written 100 blogs (the one you're reading right now is number 100). Did I reach the goals that I've defined when I started blogging? Have I delivered any value, and which benefits did I get from blogging? It's time for a retrospective!
