Dingsøyr, Dybå, and Moe now current a entire photo of the data won over decades of analysis by way of these operating heavily with or within the undefined. It indicates the present country of analysis on agile software program improvement via an creation and ten invited contributions at the major examine fields, every one written through popular specialists. those chapters disguise 3 major concerns: foundations and history of agile improvement, agile equipment in perform, and primary demanding situations and new frontiers. They convey the $64000 leads to each one subfield, and also they clarify what those effects suggest to practitioners in addition to for destiny learn within the box.

Thus, in order to evaluate how well the methods can be used for the purposes that they have been designed for, a perspective provided by the availability of concrete guidance for application is needed.
