Abstract:

"Software provides most organizations with key competitive advantages; however, IT is often considered a major cost center rather than a valued investment for an organization. Agile and lean techniques have helped to revolutionize software development, but they don't assess the value of these initiatives. This book argues that software development must be organized, managed and measured to maximize the flow of business value, end-to-end. It offers valuable advice and examples for identifying value and making it visible to all stakeholders (business and IT) in order to drive the decisions that will increase the flow of software value and drive greater business and economic benefits."--Provided by publisher.
