Piloting Iterative And Agile Processes

interesting Forrester report on how to pilot new processes and the tools that support them. Focus on new project management techniques, and think of comparative metrics!

Here's the exec summary.

Companies considering adopting iterative or Agile development processes need to institute a pilot program from the start. The program must not only address the new processes but must also pilot any new tools(development or life-cycle management), project management techniques, and most importantly, new metrics. Project managers and developers must embrace the new processes and adapt their management styles accordingly. Without baseline and comparative metrics, it's impossible to know whether a new process has delivered any value or improved on the quality or productivity the teams had before.
