By Gary Gruver,Mike Young,Pat Fulghum

this day, even the biggest improvement agencies are turning to agile methodologies, looking significant productiveness and caliber advancements. even though, large-scale agile improvement is hard, and publicly to be had case reports were scarce. Now, 3 agile pioneers at Hewlett-Packard current a candid, start-to-finish insider’s examine how they’ve succeeded with agile in a single of the company’s so much mission-critical software program environments: firmware for HP LaserJet printers.

This booklet tells the tale of a rare test and trip. may perhaps agile rules be utilized to re-architect a tremendous legacy code base? may agile permit either well timed supply and ongoing innovation? may perhaps it quite be utilized to four hundred+ builders disbursed throughout 4 states, 3 continents, and 4 company devices? may well it transcend providing incremental earnings, to satisfy the stretch target of 10x developer productiveness improvements?

It might, and it did—but getting there has been now not easy.

Writing for either managers and technologists, the authors candidly speak about either their successes and screw ups, featuring actionable classes for different improvement agencies, in addition to methods that experience confirmed themselves many times in HP’s hard setting. They not just light up the capability advantages of agile in large-scale improvement, additionally they systematically exhibit how those merits can really be achieved.

Coverage includes:
• Tightly linking agile equipment and company structure with company objectives
• Focusing agile practices in your worst improvement discomfort issues to get the main bang on your buck
• leaving behind vintage agile equipment that don’t paintings on the biggest scale
• using agile the way to determine a brand new architecture
• utilizing metrics as a “conversation starter” round agile approach improvements
• Leveraging non-stop integration and caliber structures to lessen expenditures, speed up schedules, and automate the supply pipeline
• Taming the making plans beast with “light-touch” agile making plans and light-weight long-range forecasting
• enforcing powerful venture administration and making sure responsibility in huge agile projects
• coping with tradeoffs linked to key judgements approximately organizational structure
• Overcoming U.S./India cultural variations that could complicate offshore development
• choosing instruments to aid quantum leaps in productiveness on your organization
• utilizing swap administration disciplines to aid better firm agility
