Supporting Agile transformation...
Usually I write about articles, but this time I wanted to point out a doctoral thesis work from a large telecom company in Finland. The company has undergone a transformation from project-driven to Agile software development and it seems that they are gaining on the market, looking at more feature-rich products and faster cycles.
I especially recommend Part IV where they discuss the effects of Agile transformation on defect management and quality. Not many companies were able to measure such a strong effect. I will use this reference often to point toward numbers :)
