About Succeeding with Agile

The Succeeding with Agile website was developed to support Mike Cohn's book of the same title. On this site you will find sample chapters for free download. You will also find Excel spreadsheets described in the book. There is also a PowerPoint presentation you can use that summarizes some of the research on the benefits of agile as described in the book.

An extensive reference list and outlines for each chapter are provided with the hope that they create a discussion about the advice presented in the book.
