Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 223!   

The Software Process and Measurement Cast 223 features my essay on Benchmarking Agile. The essay begins:

Benchmarking is the search for answers and perhaps if we get very excited, we might say the truth. Benchmarking any project or organization takes time, effort and focus to accomplish. In most cases we expend the effort to measure and benchmark so that we can improve the overall system or organization rather than any single project.

SPaMCAST 223 marks the beginning of columns by Kim Pries.  Kim is a teacher, author, polymath, phenomenologist, problem-solver living Texas. In this column Kim talks about improving testing. The audio is not perfect howver the content is great and we are working on the the technical issues.  Check out Kim's LinkedIn page.

Have you checked out Daily Process Thoughts?  Daily Process Thoughts is delivering a quick daily idea, thought or simple smile to help you become a better change agent.  Check it out at www.tcagley.wordpress.com. 

Recently, Kirill Klimov, a listener to the SPaMCAST published an article title "Agile Podcasts: A Great Learning Alternative" on INFOQ.  Kirill states that he is passionate about Agile software development and podcasting at the same time. He is trying to promote wide spreading Agile with podcasts.  Kirill created article about great reliable Agile podcasts. SPaM Cast is there!
